Beretta JMN9S15 BU9 Nano 6+1 9mm 3.07"
[JMN9S15]
$398.00
by Jimmy F Date Added: Monday 04 March, 2013
There is a lot to love about this gun and I like it being chambered in a 9mm (even though all the 9mm ammo is currently gone). The Nano is small, but it certainly is not as light as the Bodyguard 380. But the way the nose is chamfered and there are no protrusions on the gun mean that you can rest assured it will not snag as you draw it from inside a pocket, waistband, etc. That is a great feature. Plus I like the added stopping power over a .380 ACP. My nano came with one six-round magazine and one eight-round magazine. The eight-round magazine is the way to go as it provides two more bullets (+) AND it gives your pinky something to grip (++). First time I fired it, used 124 gr American Bullets and I had three (3) FTEs. I am really hoping it was not me limp-wristing it. I had heard that this could happen with a new Nano (or weaker ammo), so I grabbed some +124 gr +p ammo (PDX1) and ran 20 rounds through it...no issues. I then ran 50 rounds of 124 gr American Eagle (read somewhere it was the preferred ammo of the Nano...through reviewers personal experience) and I again had zero issues. I am going to try some cheaper 115 gr ammo next time and see how she likes it. The one odd thing about this gun that I am not used to is that there is no slide lock lever. Why? Because it could protrude and snag on your pants pocket...remember, VERY smooth gun on the outside. So the only way to lock the slide back is to insert an empty magazine into the Nano and rack the slide. At that point, you can remove the slide and the slide will remain locked open. Again, never had a gun that had this feature and it takes a while getting used to. FYI...the manual states: "The extended use of +P or +P+ ammunition may decrease component part service life expectancy." There it is...WORD FOR WORD from the Beretta Nano manual. This is one reason I bought the gun and I carry PDX1 +p in one mag and Buffalo Bore +p+ (both 124 gr) in the other mag. Using it in a life threatening situation does not constitute "extended use" in my book.
