Default Ok. How could I not buy it?

I Got a flyer in the mail yesterday. It was from Cabelas. There was a gift card in it. It said that if I made a purchase before October 3rd for more that $500 they would put $150 on the card to be used on a separate purchase. How could I not go buy another gun? You can never have enough guns, right? I got to Cabelas and saw a new Bersa Thunder Ultru Compact Pro. It's a 45acp. It was $399. I already have their .380 concealed. It has been a great little shooter. I decided to buy it. I still had to figure out what to spend another $100 on. But it is Cabelas. It wasn't too hard. I walked out with a new gun, some self defense ammo and some other goodies, along with a shiny new $150 gift card in my wallet. I immediately went to the range of course. What a great shooting gun! It holds 7 in the mag and 1 in the pipe. It has a decocker. I am comfortable carrying my 1911 in condition 1. But a double action is nice to have too. This is the only truly ambidextrous gun I have ever seen. Not only is the decocker on both sides of the gun, but so is the slide release and the mag release can be switched to either side.

I took the picture with my 1911 and my J-frame just to show the size of it. I can actually put it in my front pocket.

Nice looking little pistol and I have to agree. You just HAD to since they were tempting you like that.

It's in the right caliber too. Congrats.

If you want some help spending that $150. gift card, I could use a few things.

I can understand that logic. Great job, looks like a nice little pistol.

Thanks for buying a Bersa. It's the only company that cares about Argentine gun owners and their rights. They are very nice people and would be making an even better and more affordable product if it weren't for all the hoops the current government is making them jump through.

I hope you enjoy it. Post a range report when you get the chance to shoot it!

I can understand how they forced your hand.

The card will expire one January 2, 2011 if I don't use it. I can't imagine that being a problem. I am going to go back and look at some of their WWII stuff. My son was trying to talk me into buying an Auto Ordinance Thompson. It has $1,199.00 marked on it. I am sure it is semi auto if Cabelas is selling it. Anybody know if $1200 is a good price for a Tommy Gun? I think it would be cool to own one. Plus I am trying to build up my .45 collection. I only have 2 now. It even comes with the 50 round drum.

Compared to $80,000 for an original in mint condition. Yeah, I'd say that's a fair price.

It would have been futile to resist! A good pistol, enjoy the heck out of it.
