I really really like the way my wife's new Bersa Thunder feels in my hand and how it points naturally. But, I don't personally want to go smaller than a 9mm Luger. So, this also excludes just about any Makarov style pistol I've run across. Are there any Thunder/Makarov style pistols chambered in 9mm Luger or larger? If so, are they reliable enough for defensive purposes?
