Ok, it just completed Massad Ayoob's class today and I've got to say it was one of the most challenging things I've done in a while. I'm relatively new to owning a hand gun (6 months) and I was practicing for shooting qualification and my Bersa .380 failed right before the qualification test. I had no backup so I had to take the test with my buddy's P94 9mm ruger. I never shot the thing before so I think you can understand my apprehension. I did well and passed. My buddy checked out by Bersa last night and there was a spring that broke in the handle that returned the hammer. This gun up to that point only had about 6-700 rounds through it. I have two questions. 1. Does anybody know if this is a common occurrence with these pistols? I'm really concerned that if I get it fixed it may not go bang when I need it to. 2. Can I get some recommendations on a good gun for concealed carry that would be reliable should I need to replace it?
