Default A 9mm you dont hear much about.

I went to the range today to shot my Firestorm mini 9mm. It has a laser aim mounted underneath. see photo.
I shot at 30 feet and shot a total of 18 rounds. see photo (ran out of shells)
The group at 7/8 O'Clock was with the laser pointed at the black square.
The last group in the black square was after estimating adjusting aim point to 2 O'Clock. It has never jammed or hung up on me. But, I have only shot about 200 rounds through it.

Not a bad looking pistol. A bit chunky in the grip though. Is that a double stack?

I just did a quick search on them. It is apparently affiliated with Bersa.

Definitely would like To know more of your experience with this pistol. I am interested in something like that for my wife. She keeps trying to steal my S&W 3913, I think she would like this one though.

The bore sure looks big for a 9mm.

It's the same pistol as the Bersa Thunder Ultra Compact 9mm (UC9). Firestorm contracted Bersa to make it with their rollmark. Shortly after coming out with the "Pro" series of Thunders, the Firestorm line was discontinued. I can't tell from the pic, does that Firestorm have a full rail? That was one change from the old Thunder to the Pro Thunder & I've heard a few Firestorm Pros were imported before being discontinued. If that is a Pro, it's a rare pistol.
