Go Anywhere Gun - Beretta Jetfire

This is my "go anywhere" gun.  The gun that goes in work slacks, or into my gym shorts walking from the gym to my car. The Beretta Jetfire. Some may say it's silly to carry a .25 ACP in one of the most dangerous cities in America, but it sure beats the 1911 sitting in my safe at home.
Unlike Caleb, I never have a hot cuppa Dunkin coffee with me.....

$200, in great shape, and it looked like it'd had very, very few rounds through it and was then pretty much never carried.  The patina look in this photo is due to the sun & the photo app I used.

I think my iPhone with a Mophie case might weigh more than the gun does.

The only downside is that the Desantis Nemesis pocket holster I've been using for it is not the greatest.  Anyone else who has carried / used to carry a Jetfire have any other pocket holster suggestions?

I had a Beretta TomCat, which is the same pistol, but in .32. I switched to a S&W 642 a couple of years ago as my pocket gun.

When I carried the Beretta, I has a pocket holster from Andrews leather. This guy does good work, check him out.

i carried the .22 short model for years and switched to the .32 keltec when they came out.. both are reliable. the small lightweight keltec spoils you with how convenient it carries.

I carried one for several years as a BUG between a folded handkerchief. Later Eventually I made a simple folded leather holster using rivets and some stiches.

I have owned 4 or 5 of them over the years. Wish I had one now. When I carried them, they were carried in my pocket - no holster. I always made sure to keep my pocket clean of lint and inspected the carry-pocket virtually each day. The downside to that was they were more apt to rust from sweat no matter how well maintained. I changed to a Beretta 21A years later but never liked it anywhere as much as the Jetfire for a few reasons. That was mostly because the internal mechanism, a spring, depended on the grips. Enjoy that little Jetfire. Expensive ammo, with a small punch, but much better than no gun at all.

All the best,

I have a 21A that I carry in a wallet holster. Try Tex Shoemaker & Son.
