    Thumbs up Hi and Hello From Texas

    Been reading a while and really enjoy the mature and helpful conversation i have found on here.

    This forum surely is a level above other Self Defense type forums.



    Recently purchased a Bersa .380 conceal/carry model and took my CHL test this past weekend.

    I hope to learn from you guys and gals.

    Welcome aboard Henry. I consider the Bersa .380 as a good backup pistol. However, my preference for carry would be a minimum of 9mm with .45 cal. being even better.
    The power of the future is in its ability to inspire the present.

    Welcome...

    That little Bersa is a fun pistol, I carry one when I can't carry a bigger pistol.

    My wife actually bought the Bersa for the house when I am at work.

    If light rails were needed on handguns John Browning would have included it on the 1911.
