Destinee’s Take: Kahr CM9 vs. Beretta Nano

TTAG’s always looking for new contributors who can tell the truth about guns or gun-related issues—without making our Armed Intelligentsia nod off or howl in protest. Actually, we like howling. Keeps us honest. Anyway, after meeting the mono-monikered Destinee at SHOT and checking out her [YouTube] channel, we knew she was the real deal. Our well-received Kahr CM9 review was the result. The young gun slinger recently posted her A/B look at two popular tiny nineys: the aforementioned CM9 and the Beretta Nano. Destinee’ll be writing up her Nano impressions for TTAG in the next 48 hours. As Rick said, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship . . .

    You know she hates the phrase “tiney niney,” don’t you?

    You’re just doing it to make her crazy, aren’t you?

    Don’t stop :p

    1. I was not aware of that.

        It doesn’t really bother me. It’s just not a phrase I’d generally use. However, I do think that it adds something to color your handgun terminology. :]

    She does a good job. I don’t know how to describe it except to say that the way she presents her information gives me confidence in her conclusions.

    The slow-mo part of that video was interesting because you could really see the difference in the trigger pull between the two guns.

    Great review! Thanks for your work in presenting these guns. (First saw you on Hickock45).

    I am in the process of deciding between the Nano and the S&W Shield. The Kahr is not on my radar right now. Wanting a pocket gun and the Shield is slightly too big for pocket carry and I want the option to pocket carry.
