Compacts Handguns News NRA Show Personal Defense First Look: Beretta Pico Debuts at NRA Show 2013 G&A Online Editors May 3rd, 2013 | More From G&A Online Editors Share0 Tweet Email Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+The micro compact market is all about size. Shooters want thin, they want light and they want concealability. Beretta USA claims they’ve set the market on all three with the new Beretta Pico. The enticing new pocket pistol debuted at the 2013 NRA Annual Meetings today in Houston with much fanfare, as attendees swarmed the Beretta booth to get a look at the diminutive gun. This .380 ACP is just 18mm wide at its widest point, and is advertised to have the thinnest slide and frame available by a full millimeter. The Pico’s other great selling point is its modularity. The grip frame, quick-change dovetail sights, and caliber are all interchangeable with little to no tool work involved. Beretta will be offering a .32 ACP barrel option that’s easy to swap and a number of different color frames including a LaserMax version with an integrated tactical light and laser. Several holsters will be available when the gun hits the shelves in August. With base models starting at $399, these USA-made pistols should prove quite popular as soon as they begin shipping. http://brightcove=2351115652001 Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+ Share0 Tweet Email Load Comments ( ) Don’t forget to sign up!
