Congrats. 125 for a cc is a pretty good deal. I also have a .380cc. I unfortunately got mine a while ago and they were hard to find and a bit pricey. Best little gun I own. I don't get to use it much anymore as the wife has decided that it is no longer mine and now hers. We use a ubg iwb holster for it and we also have a Don Hume iwb clip-on. Both good holsters, but the UBG is excellent, the Don Hume is a stock holster and available for immediate delivery though. We also have a generic Uncle Mike's nylon holster, we just use that as a dust cover now when it's in the nightstand. As far as ammo, for practice we use wwb ammo available at any walmart. For carry ammo, I use Cor-Bon powerballs. I would like to use Cor-Bon dpx ammo, but I seem to have problems finding it. The powerballs are nice because the little silicone ball on the end helps them feed flawlessly. Supposedly the ball is there to help with penetrating heavy layers of clothing, who know if it really does that? I like any and all Cor-Bon ammo though.
Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

I have tried many holsters for concealed carry and I am now hooked on holsters by www.kdholsters.com. Great quality, great price and very comfortable. The lead times can be excessive though.
While you decide on a holster, consider a good quality gun belt. That makes all the difference in comfort. Whether you choose, IWB or OWB, the belt supports the weapon.
Congrats on your purchase and carry safely!

Wow! That was a good deal. If they had one that cheap here, my wife would kill me because I would have bought it.

You can't beat that for the price. I have the thunder. It like rounded nose hollow points the best. I shoot either Remington Golden Sabers or Winchester SXT without any problems. They may not be the best PDR but if you have something your gun doesn't shoot well, the best performing round won't do any good. I had tried about 5 different holsters and the one that works best for me (IWB) is a Bianchi 6X made for a PPK. It is thin swade leather with a belt clip on it. I like it because it is thin, but durable. Also comfortable. It took a little work to strech the holster to fit but now it is like a glove. Enjoy!!!

Congratulations on the new Bersa, there's one at my local shop I've been considering as well. That thin, flat profile seems perfect for a pocket gun as well as a small belt carry primary.

I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..
