I ws watching one of those 1k round tests with a Glock and the guide rod melted and fell out. Thing kept shooting though. THe one wit hthe Para Ord was really cool. It was a 45 and was getting pretty hot and hard to handle but kept going..
Bersa makes a pretty good pistol. Especially for the money. I owned one of the 380's a while back and it did just fine (after a break in period). I've shot a couple of the 9mm and they worked really well.
