    Selling my Bersa Thunder .380 CC

    I thinking of either a Taurus 709 Slim or a Taurus P111. Thoughts? I want to stay with the 9mm caliber. So please don't suggest any other caliber. I also want something under $400.

    You may like the Bersa UC9PRO
    It a little heavy but you can still CC it.

    You may be able to find a Kahr CW9 under $400. The price limit really restricts whats available to you. Some quality used guns may be something to consider.

    I like my pt111, but don't carry it as often as my 24/7 Pro.

    What size are you looking for? Do you want compact, sub compact, or will you go up to a more full sized pistol?
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I hate to hear that you are parting with your Bersa .380. Finding ammo may be tough right now, and 9mm is a more powerful round, but the Bersa is perhaps the best of the PPK types available. I'll bet the day will come when you regret selling your .380. Since you already have a firearm, why not wait a bit and save up before buying a 9?

    When you do buy a new pistol, bear in mind you will also need a holster for it, a spare magazine or two, a couple of hundred rounds of practice ammo so you and your new friend can bond, and enough defensive ammo to know the pistol will feed it reliably with enough left over for carry. The ammo, mags and holster will eat up $300-350 of your $400, leaving only a few bucks plus the money from the sale/trade of the Bersa. You will be lmited to buying a very few models of very used 9mms.

    I have a Taurus PT111, and the trigger on mine isn't great. Other than that it's a good pistol. I really like the 709 (but haven't shot it yet), I think that will be my next purchase.

    I also own the Bersa .380cc. I think it's a great gun, but I understand wanting to "upgrade" caliber.

    used glock 26 in 9mm is always a good cc one in 9mm. also check out used Karh's too they make a great slim cc gun as well.

    I have the Bersa Thunder 9 UC. It's been a great weapon. Dependable and easy to conceal.

    Don't want your new 9mm to be lonely, do you. You seldom get what it's worth for back up, spouse, or hideout. That way, as you save up for something really nice, a tool for life, you'll have a chance to consider the 40's and 45's. Anthing worth shooting with a 9 is worth shooting with a 45.

    Exclamation My 2 cents...

    How about a small, slim, lightweight, dependable 9mm...say a Kel Tec PF-9...with the LaserLite and pocket clip, it cost right around $400.

    In compact 9s, I have a Taurus PT111 (one of the original series, not a 'Pro') and a Kahr CW9.

    The PT111 is 10+1 capacity; CW9 is 7+1

    I carry both in paddle holsters. The CW9 is definitely slimmer; weight feels about the same on the hip.

    CW9 has a longer grip which accommodates all 4 fingers, but the trigger guard is smallish and I wouldn't shoot it with gloves. The PT111 has a shorter grip and my pinkie goes under the mag, but its a thicker, chunkier grip and gives good support.

    Accuracy is about the same.

    Trigger - the edge goes to the Kahr for smoother, shorter and lighter pull. The Taurus trigger takes some getting used to; it's a long pull (but not gritty at all) and you can 'stage' the trigger with practice.

    Reliability - hard to say definitively. The Taurus went back to the factory when it went 'click' instead of bang at about 1000 rounds, and it's been fine since. The CW9 has run like a sewing machine since I got it, well past the 1000 round mark. (And FWIW, relative to some Kahr discussions here, I almost never use the slide release - I 'slingshot' the slide to chamber the first round. Never a problem with this gun.)

    I think the PT111 is a little cheaper than the CW9, and I would opt for the Pro model for slightly higher capacity. But if you're OK with 7+1 capacity, the slimness of the Kahr makes it the one I'd pick if I could only have one.

    Taurus Slim is a great gun. My father in law has one and we have both put quite a few problem free rounds through it. My dad even borrowed it to try out and has one on his list now.

    I am a fan of the Taurus 709. I recently started carrying one and it's a dream to carry. Light, thin, accurate, adjustable rear sigt, external saftey, reliable and very little recoil for a sub compat.. I have zeo issues carrying it OWB with just a light short as cover.
