Our Assessment: The Beretta 21A, also known as the Bobcat, is a handy conceal carry pistol possessed of its storied manufacturer’s quality construction and stylish design. This EL model features handsome walnut grips that contrast well with the dark blue finish. This example was produced in 1993 and hardly looks its age. The bore needs a good once-over, but otherwise this pistol is nicely squared away. This is a light pistol that will take up no more room than a wallet and offers any number of ways to conceal it on your person. Good luck and happy bidding.
