I'd say you traded up. Congrats!:thumb:
It was priced at 289 + tax. Took a beating on the LCP though....they don't command the same prices as they used to. Only got a hundred off that 289 price.Heck of a deal, congrats!
You did OK. Maybe you get $125 or $140 selling it privately, but is that really worth the effort?It was priced at 289 + tax. Took a beating on the LCP though....they don't command the same prices as they used to. Only got a hundred off that 289 price.
Not to me, at least for a gun that someone else would carry.You did OK. Maybe you get $125 or $140 selling it privately, but is that really worth the effort?
Well, the biggest issue is work for me. I carry, pocket, either the other LCP or Pico or G42, most of the time. The weekends are about the only time I get to carry a larger pistol, OWB.I despised 380 pistols and sold off those that I owned years ago. With in the last year and a half I picked up a couple simply due to the micro size ease of concealment that they afford. My GLOCK 43 began the rebirth of the 380 appreciation, followed by a SW Bodyguard which relegated the GLOCK 43 into the safe in favor of the manual slide safety on the Bodyguard. Then came the rebate offer on the Beretta Pico. The Pico is a true micro concealment protection pistol. Not comfortable to shoot, long hard trigger pull, super small grip, but as much as those are negatives they are also positives in concealment means.
A few months ago the Beretta rebate offer made picking up a Nano 9mm too good to pass on. It was the weapon that the Pico was designed off of, meaning all rounded corners, no snag design with a purpose of easy concealment.
Problem is, I have become so accustomed to carrying those darn little micro mini .380 pistols that even the Nano feels to be a large frame to conceal. So now if I step up to anything larger than the little micro mini pistols such as the PT111, 809C, or 24/7C it is open carry.
Great pickup on the new 9mm, hope it serves you well and that you never need it use it.
A bonus: those Ruger Security 9 mags will run in a Ruger PC Carbine 9mm! if you’re so inclined.Welp, seeing as though I had four pocket pistols, I traded my oldest Ruger LCP (had two), for this NIB Ruger Security 9.
I have not shot it yet, but after watching several reviews, I decided it to be a favorable pistol. It came with two 15 round magazines, and it is hammer fired. After breaking it down and giving it a cleaning, I checked it out closer. It seems to be a well made pistol. I will follow up with a range report, once I get the chance to go to the range with it.
I did not know that! Thanks for the information!A bonus: those Ruger Security 9 mags will run in a Ruger PC Carbine 9mm! if you’re so inclined.
Hey, that is my purpose . . . ergo . . . .I did not know that! Thanks for the information!
Enjoy your new toy. I don't see any reason to own a .380 when the new pocket 9mms are not hand beaters like the Kel Tek P11. My friend has a PT709 and I fired it and it was so smooth that you could shoot it all day. I got a S&W M&P shield in 9mm and it's a pleasure to shoot. as is the G2 /PT111.
