In this comprehensive review, James Reeves delves into the details of the Beretta 30X Tomcat, a modern .32 ACP iteration of the classic pocket pistol that has captivated shooters for years. Join us as we explore the nuances that set the 30X apart from its predecessor, the Beretta 3032 Tomcat, and see how it stacks up against popular competitors like the Kel-Tec P3AT and the Sig P365.

We dive into the evolution of the Beretta Tomcat series, tracing its lineage from the Beretta 950 Jetfire to the latest Beretta 30X Tomcat model. We discuss the technological advancements and design philosophy that have shaped this iconic line of firearms. We start by examining the 30X’s design enhancements, including its improved ergonomics, increased magazine capacity, and the innovative Trident trigger system that promises a smoother shooting experience. We also highlight the pistol’s unique tip-up barrel feature, designed for easy loading and chambering, making it accessible for all users, regardless of hand strength.

Our comparison segment offers a side-by-side look at the Beretta 30X Tomcat, Kel-Tec P3AT, and Sig P365, focusing on size, weight, capacity, and ease of carry. We discuss how the 30X fills a specific niche in the concealed carry market.

The range test is where the Beretta 30X can prove itself (or not). We put the pistol through its paces, testing for accuracy and reliability with various ammunition types from 5 to 10 yards. We also provide insights into the shooting experience, noting the pistol’s recoil management and overall handling.

Whether you’re a long-time Beretta enthusiast or considering your first pocket pistol for concealed carry, this review offers valuable insights into the Beretta 30X Tomcat’s place in the world of compact firearms. Join us for an in-depth look at this pistol and its role in the ongoing evolution of concealed carry options.
