And, yeeeeeahNO. I wouldn’t mind having a pocket pistol with a more potent cartridge than my Beretta Bobcat (.25 ACP), and I know a lot of people swear by the LCP, so I visited one of my many local Merchants of Death (TM) to take a look. And, just no. With the regular mag, I can only get one finger around the fucking thing, the various lasered editions are even worse. I am generally of the mind that if a gun can’t be run bone stock out of a box, I avoid it. Besides, I can get a full two fingers around my Beretta. If the Beretta Tomcat didn’t have so many reports about slides and frames cracking with extensive use, I’d go that route.
Also, I see Beretta may have discontinued the Cheetah, which means the Bobcat will soon follow, and they’re being replaced by fuck ugly plastic guns that probably aren’t as good as the ones made by Glock and S&W. Dammit Beretta, your job is to make attractive guns people want to own, you’re Italians, stop trying to make sterile, boring functional shit, leave that other countries that do boring soulless reliability better than you. Make stylish guns that people actually want to own. Does Ferrari make gas sipping econoboxes because that’s the trend now? Fuck no, because they’re fucking Ferrari. Start by bringing back the Cheetah, make a nice, thin, attractive alloy gun between the size of the Bobcat and Cheetah that, you know, looks and acts like a fucking Beretta, not that big fuck ugly lump of polymer called the Nano. And bring back the rounded trigger guards from the old B guns, they looked so much better than that blocky shit you do now on the F guns.
Next gun is an 84BB. It shall be done.
