Beretta has unveiled the Beretta 30X Tomcat, an ultra-concealable pocket pistol with enhanced comfort, unmatched durability, and effortless loading.

The 30X Tomcat incorporates the revolutionary Effortless Loading System (ELS) which features a push-button mechanism that eliminates the need to rack the slide, providing unparalleled ease for users with limited hand strength and ensures the easiest and quietest loading operation possible in a semi-automatic pistol. This pocket-sized powerhouse boasts enhanced features such as increased magazine capacity, repositioned controls for optimal accessibility, a skeletonized trigger and hammer for a 35 percent lighter pull than previous Tomcat models, dovetail slide cuts for versatility and new proprietary "Helica" textured grips for added comfort making it more enjoyable and fun to shoot.

Its compact size and lightweight construction make it easy to carry, fitting seamlessly into a pocket, backpack or survival kit without adding unnecessary bulk. The Beretta 30X Tomcat emerges as a discreet yet formidable option for those who prioritize mobility and preparation for any situation.

“In the hands of a survivalist, a pistol becomes more than a tool; it's the embodiment of readiness, a symbol of preparedness, and the silent guardian of self-reliance in the face of uncertainty,” says Dina Sanders, Brand Marketing Manager – Tactical. “The 30x Tomcat is an excellent choice as your stealthy side kick.”

The .32 ACP caliber Beretta 30X Tomcat was on display at the 2024 NRA Show in Dallas, Texas. The Beretta 30X Tomcat “Get Home Bag” and “Do It Yourself” models will be available at a retail starting this month at MSRP $599.
