    I have a Bersa Thunder 9UC Pro. Obtained it about a year and half ago unfired for $300. It has been flawless through hundreds of rounds and very accurate to boot. I trust it to be my main cold weather EDC. If I stumble upon a HC or another UC for the right price I will snatch it up. I love my Bersa!

    I have a Bersa Thunder .380. Not to be mr. negative but it is my least favorite gun. I don't feel it is reliable to protect myself or family. When I purchased the gun several years ago it was priced right and has lots of features. It is ammo fussy with lots of jams and stovepipes.
    I use the Ruger LC9 instead. Very happy with the LC9.

    I have owned 3 Thunder 380s and a Firestorm 22lr. All have been reliable accurate.

    I carry a Bersa Thunder 9 Ultra Compact Pro. I've put hundreds of rounds through it and have never had a failure of any kind with it. It's so accurate you could drive nails with it.

    yep. The top one is a pre-Pro Thunder 9 that I use to kick my shooting buddy's $1,200 SIG 226. He goes nuts every time this gun outshoots his SIG.
    The bottom two are the Thunder 9UC Pro and the BP9CC....both exceptionally accurate especially with the polyganol rifling Bersa added
    with the Pro Series.

    Bersas used to run around the low 300.00 mark IIRC now they run closer to $400.00 for some models.I would not hesitate to carry one after running enough ammo thru it to make sure my gun was reliable

    I had the UC40 that was a decent gun, but just a little too thick IMHO for IWB CCW.

    The finish on the slide was nasty as well.

    I sold it

    I have a friend that has the new 9mm BP9cc and it shot very accurately.

    I have started trying to buy American made wherever possible a few years back..... There are many great choices

    What non-shooter are YOU planning on taking to the range?

    Nice First CCW

    I just purchased one and it seems like a fine gun. As for looks its pretty sharp and it 100s of dollars less that the others. Mine's a Thunder 380 and we'll see after a few 1,000 rounds. If I was looking for a 9mm, i would probably also look at Sig and Bernelle but Bersa would be in the mix.

    The Bersa Thunder is a great little gun. My old $279 Bersa Thunder .380 could outshoot my ex-girlfriend's Beretta 84 .380. I did improve it with a little trigger job ;-)

    I've had a .45 Ultra Carry for a year or so.

    It's OK. A co-worker expressed interest in it, so I might sell that to him.

    Pro -- reliable, seems accurate. Controls are large, and easily reached. Safety is just like the 1911 guys like. Take down is trivially easy.

    Con -- magazines are pricey. Nickel plating quality is spotty.

    I've got 2, Bersa Thunder ultra compact pro .40 and a Bersa thunder .380 deluxe. Both excellent guns, though I'm looking for some adjustable sights for the .40, combat sighting doesn't do it for me, I prefer not to have to aim above my target.
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)
