Good Choice
 

I got one when Picos first came out. Very happy with mine & bought another one in 2018. These are the most concealable & comfortable guns I carry & have true DAO triggers which I prefer. No need for a safety, plus I get restrike capability. Super reliable. They run everything I feed them. You notice the quality when you field strip them & look over the parts. Solid & precise.

Stay Away !!!
 

The firing pin broke on this gun at the range. Apparently that's a common thing with Beretta. I had registered the gun online, but that was a waste of time as getting through to somebody on the phone is a joke. I spent 2 days calling only to be put on hold for about 20 mins then sent to voice mail. There is no customer service. I'm sick of every company using Covid as a fucking excuse. Covid doesn't stop them from taking your money. Funny how they manage to do that part just well. Stay away from this gun. Matter of fact just stay away from Beretta altogether. I will never buy another gun from them. And to think I was actually looking for a 92x. Glad I dodged that bullet.

Very concealable, but takes significant practice
 

Iraq and Afghanistan Army vet, Expert Marine Combat Pistol Course with the M9 (Beretta 92FS). I wear my shirts shmedium, and tucked, and didn't want to dress around my gun. This was bought as a church and movie gun. This is the easiest to conceal and it was bought purely for that. I have two. Both have the LaserMax integrated grip I bought on beretta.com. I find the Recluseholster.com front pocket holster excellent and prints like a wallet. One is also outfitted with universal clipdraw.com for appendix carry. I applied Talon gun grips, since it kicks like a mule. Most people I take to the range for the first time put the second round into the dirt. Despite the fact I can't miss with my M9, there was minimal carryover to the Pico. It took me hours of training with the iTarget pro app system and 500 rounds to become proficient. Hornady Critical Defense will not jam and is excellent. For FMJ, Winchester jams, Remington jams less. Please reply if you have a FMJ that doesn't jam!

Great little pocket pistol
 

Bought the version 2 with the softer spring and paired it with the laser sight. Invisible in the front pocket wearing khakis or comfortable jeans. You must use production ammo or higher power reloads - low powder reloads can stove pipe. Its got a lonnnnng trigger pull but that's okay as there is no external safety. Not an issue with an old hand like me. Also not really a girlie gun as the slide spring (even in ver 2) takes some umph to chamber a round. Put 50-100 rounds through it and the spring lightens up a little more. Its not a gun for everyone, but the perfect piece if you don't want to dress around the weapon. If you're a .380 fan, and I am, its a good gun as a back up or one you can grab if you're in a hurry and not going anywhere particularly dangerous. I waffled between a 4 and 5 star rating. After contemplation, I settled on a 4 because the five star is reserved for the finest .380 ever built, the Beretta 85BB. But too be clear, I REALLY like the Pico.

Would not recommend
 

Constant stove pipes and misfires, magazine rattles. When removing a loaded magazine, it sometimes gets stuck, and when you pull it, it pulls a round out of the magazine. The inner frame is loose inside the polymer. Terrible gun all around and no gun dealer around me will buy it back so I’m stuck with a $300 paperweight.

Easily concealed, not so great everywhere else
 

PRO: The Pico is definitely affordable ($300 or less, most places) and I can easily cover the whole gun with my flat palm, so it's the easiest thing to conceal I've ever seen. CONS: I cannot get a "correct" hand grip, can only use one hand on the firearm. The magazine release does not allow quick mag drops and reloads. The extended mag does not hold extra rounds, it's just a plastic cover. Running dryfire drills are impossible, an empty magazine prevents the slide from closing. OVERALL: I'm definitely not getting rid of it, and it remains my CC piece, but anytime I have this on me, I'm hoping it will hold until I get out to my car for my M9, or back into my house for the AR .

An excellent choice for EDC
 

Pros; Very Small, reliable, accurate with a long heavy trigger pull. Cons; long heavy trigger pull? How can this be both a pro and a con? Con; To the inexperienced shooter it will take some getting use to and your accuracy may suffer. Pros; It will improve the trigger control and accuracy on all your other firearms. Plus having this type of trigger on a concealed carry weapon with no manual safety while carrying one in the chamber makes perfect sense. You will always find a way to carry the Pico no matter what you are wearing. I have several other excellent Berettas and this is no exception. I can highly recommend this firearm.

Good Enough
 

I got this for the super slim and compact profile. Threw on the night sights and lasermax laser chassis along with some talon grips. It's perfect for anything <5yds and has the comfort of a DAO trigger. I don't like to dress around my firearm and this is perfect for that. Outside a few F2F early on, it's been damn reliable. I also got mine at a steal of less than $200. It takes a lot of practice to get used to the tiny grips and trigger but otherwise I'd recommend it for something super small. I don't mind the paddle-style release since I don't plan on doing any speed reloads in the field. I love that it has a slide lock. My only advice is, don't treat it like a go-to-war gun or a Glock. It's a gut-gun and nothing more.

This is one where Hickok45 got it all wrong.
 

I have three Pico's. Hickok45 did this great little gun a BIG disservice in his video. He handled it like it was SOOOO much different than his Kahr P380 grunting and groaning to get a round in. Please. I don't have Governor Cuomo hands like Hickok45 and have no problem with the Pico and I'm almost 70. Most accurate and reliable pocket pistol I have ever shot. Either Hickok needs to reevaluate his awful review of a great little gun or stop reviewing guns that doesn't fit his Andrew Cuomo sized mitts and ego. I love it and rely on it for my and my families life daily. Beretta you've got a winner and Hickok45 did you wrong.

Easy to conceal, Difficult to use
 

Obviously a great option for comfort carrying. Can be put anywhere on the body, even with extended grip mag, with almost zero revealing betrayal. Get high terminal velocity ammo, since the barrel is very short. Double action only makes me feel good carrying it, but makes for a lengthy trigger pull. The grip is so small, I cannot use the foreknuckle of my forefinger to apply pressure to the trigger--I find that I must adjust the grip in my palm to allow for the second knuckle of my trigger finger to apply proper pressure. Makes for high lateral spread. Otherwise, recoil is harsh, making my hand a bit numb from repetitive shock after about 100 rounds at the range. Not bad, but not good. Fortunately, the versatility in wardrobe choices along with double action only safety makes this little babe a trusted choice for everyday carry.
