I don't believe the slide stop is meant to be operated by hand. It seems to be there to catch the slide open on last shot, and then when you slap a new mag in you pull back a little on the slide and it returns to battery as advertised. I just got mine and haven't made it to the range but play with it a bit and most of the kinks work out. Damned trigger is something else entirely. Mine is HARD to pull. Hickok .45 liked the trigger so maybe it works better when loaded. OH, by the way, it is small. I've got a crapload of bigger guns, but I've also got the PiCO, LCP, and TCP so I'm used to smaller guns. The PICO is not too small to operate and it has the best sights I've seen on any small gun. They ship it with 3 mags, two of which have the adapter so you have enough handle to grip.

I can't decide which design is the worst and weirdest ; the "Pico" or the Taurus "Curve". What were they thinkin' ??

Ugly? it is very similar to the LCP, but finer, smoother lines. Fine detail for concealment. Your comment does not make sense.

Interesting to see so many negatives about a gun they have never shot. I have gone through 4 LCP's and found the Pico. I have large hands and fingers and shoot this gun with fantastic results. First of all it is about the same size as the LCP just thinner. The Pistol conceals fantastic.


It is much more mild to shoot than the LCP. There is none of the "High Five Slap" notorious with the LCP.

The machining and tolerances of the gun are beautiful. It looks like it was designed in a wind tunne.

As Hickcock said in the video "I really like the trigger" Yes, a very smooth but strong trigger, something like the Ruger LCR.

The gun is a Stainless steal frame, advertised to handle Plus P ammo. Look at the gun, It is built like a small tank.
Look at the robust hammer compared to the LCP.

It shoots extremely well, anchors perfectly in between and third and 4th fingers. Use some grip tape and it is like a anchor.

The gun is modular, you can easily change out grip frames. I had cracked a couple of LCP's as I shoot a lot.

The gun is "Double Strike Capable, a great asset.

Put the gun up against the LCP and compare the quality, the Pico will beat it hands down.

Go to their forum and really learn about the gun, The mild shooting will surprise you.

I have replaced the LCP's for my Pico and never looked back. Like it so much I just ordered a second one.
By the way, if you like sights, you will love the Pico's, I have switched my out for the Trigicon nights sights which work fantastic.

Learn about the gun and please shoot one, You may just fall in love with it, like I did. And by the way, I am a Pocket gun enthusiast. I shoot a lot.

PS shoot Plus P without all the harsh recoil! The gun feeds every ammo I have put through it.

Too weird

We (wife and I) patiently tried most of the DAO .380s last year.-(Taurus,Ruger, Kahr,Kel-Tek,S&W,Beretta). I agree on the Pico-the geometry is unique, although typical Beretta high quality and, I imagine, a great choice for many folks; just didn't work for us.

We finally purchase a S&W Body Guard, and a Ruger LCP. We liked the ergonomics, quality, and shooting characteristics of those two the best (she the Ruger-me the S&W).

My wife initially really liked the Pico, but there is no way she could grip it and rack it. And if ya can't get a decent grip on any "pocket" .380, the long double action trigger cannot be mastered
