    You'd be wrong in assuming that because there are many Bersa fans on here. I often carry a Bersa Thunder 380. It's one of my favorite firearms.

    Glock 19, had to fire 12 rounds I think.

    Still carry it every day. At least until I buy a kahr CW9 so I have a smaller gun to carry during the summer. I qualified with it because I was very comfortable shooting it.

    It was a brand new, out-of-the-box, never fired Glock 27, and I had never shot a Glock before that day. I did pretty well, considering that it was the very first time I shot a .40. It has been my EDC all along.

    Ruger P-95 because I was comfortable shooting it. After I got my CHL I started carrying a Taurus Millenium PT-111 (9 mm). A couple of years later I would sometimes carry M95CH and/or M605.

    S&W Bodyguard 380 because I thought I would be carrying it. Then the S&W Shield came out and I sold the Bodyguard.

    I borrowed a Colt 1911A1 from my instructor. I picked it because I had never fired a .45 before.

    I qualified for the state permit with a Glock 19 because it was my service pistol, and I had plenty of ammo.

    For my HR218 I qualify with the my Glock 23 (40S&W), and my S&W model 10 service revolver.

    This year I plan to qualify with a Khar PM9, and a S&W model 60 revolver.

    I qualified with a Glock 19. I seldom carry it anymore. I am always more likely to carry my Kahr PM9 than anything else because I can carry it in a pocket holster. If I am going to go bigger I will carry my CZ P-01 or my HK45c which are both the same size as the G19.

    Back in the 80s I used a S&W 459, and a S&W model 66. I lost both of them in a house fire in 91. This time I'm going to use a Bersa 380 and a Model 10 S&W. In CA you can have up to 4 guns on your permit. I'm thinking Ill put on a pocket gun 32 acp baby browning,The Bersa, a J frame 38, and for shock value, a Dessert Eagle! That should turn some heads.

    Qualified wtih my S&W sigma 9mm. It was the only gun I had. Sold it awhile ago, money put towards better guns. Still miss it sometimes.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    FNP-40. Both my wife and I qualified with it.

    She carries it now, I switched to a Springfield Loaded Champion.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    In NC, qualification consists of firing fifty rounds of ammunition at a B-27 full size silhouette at a distance of 7 yards. 40 or more rounds are required to be in the 7 ring or better. Any caliber (22-44 mag.) can be used to qualify.

    I could have used my .44 special snubby which was the only small carry self-defense pistol I had at the time, but 50 rounds of ammo for that is not exactly cheap. I was already looking at about $200 for the class and license which to me was a big dent in my budget already. I used my S&W 622 .22 pistol to qualify with, because I already had plenty of .22 ammo on hand and the gun is very accurate, easy and fun to shoot. I had 4 ten round magazine already loaded, so one magazine reload was all that was needed to complete my 50 shot requirement. I think it took me about 15 minutes to complete the qualification, in the door and back out again.

    Main reason I got my CCL was so I could purchase a handgun, so I didn't own one at the time of my testing. I rented a .22-cal 1911 (can't remember brand) that was a POS that jammed every third round.
