    Post Hello from Ohio

    I'm new to the whole CCW thing. I just recently completed my class and plan on purchasing my first CC. I currently have a S&W Model 60 .38 cal snub nose, which I really like. However, I'm interested in getting a semi-auto for my CC. I have been researching and looking and have come down to the Taurus 24/7 G2 compact or the Bersa Thunder 9 ultra compact, which I really like the looks and feel of. Any suggestions???

    Welcome aboard Cool2b874 from the great state of Pennsylvania! Purchase the one that "feels" good to you - everyone has a different opinion. Heck, I just gave you my opinion!

    Welcome. Shoot those guns and different ones, too, and buy the one that feels right.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    Choices of carry guns are unlimited. It depends a lot on your personal likes & dislikes, how concealable it is (unless you're planning on open carry), what you can afford - all kinds of considerations. Ask 10 gun carriers & you'll get 10 different answers.

    I had a handgun in mind & when I decided to buy it I found a sale on a different one that I couldn't resist at a price I could afford with a few bucks left over. Since I was strapped for cash it was a major consideration. Although it wasn't exactly what I had in mind I made do & have carried it successfully ever since I bought it.

    Welcome from SW Lower Michigan!
    Between the two you mentioned, I'd go with the Bersa.
    It's a great value.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Suggest you try out several firearms to see what you are comfortable with.
