    And the good taste and discrimination to own a Mac, too... well done!

    I’m not surprised at all that us gun guys and gal’s like the Mac. I've been using them since 1984 and I have a new one on order right now. Anyway, that’s a nice little Bersa although I opted for the SIG 238 as a mini-me. Heaven only knows when it will arrive as a special order. Congrats!

    No offense but Macs are over-hyped and over priced. At least you spent sensibly on your first handgun.

    The Bersa is a great gun for the money; our rate of exchange between us and them makes it possible for our dollar to buy a gun for cheap that would be moi expensive were it done somewhere else. The controls are easy to reach and they have a good reputation. Felt recoil is low.

    Congrats !!

    [Edited] Bersatalk.com has some good info about Bersas.

    First Gun

    Great first gun welcome, pistols may be more addictive than computers. The Mac is a great choice, but then I am biased. I have had so many this is the perfect computer/pistol moments, so enjoy the journey is great.

    Congrats on the Bersa. It is a fine addition.

    Gratz on the new weapon. <sigh> Apple owners... someday you all will learn. I learned how to use computers when I was around 4 years old on an Apple... when I got a little older I soon discovered how much better PC's are.... someday you all will learn... but probably not... can't fix... well... you know the rest. =p
