yea, I would get her a kel-tec pf9 but she wants something with a manual safety that she will feel comfortable carrying locked n loaded. We were leaning toward the Taurus but now seeing everyone's opinions on it and researching it more, probably just go with the Bersa. Ya'll know of any other decent guns that are about "bersa" size with a manual safety to recommend for her to look at?

Seems like the Taurus PT709 has an extractor problem. There have been a couple of guys here that have had pretty big FTE problems with them. Word is that Taurus knows of the issue and is attempting to solve the problem.

A CZ 83 is chambered in .380 and is very close in size to a Bersa Thunder. A CZ 82 is chambered in 9x18 Makarov and has a bit more oomph than a .380ACP. However finding new ones is pretty hard.

The CZ 2075 RAMI is chambered in 9mm and may be a possibility if your budget is okay. Have her take a look at a Walther in .380 as well.

Kahr makes a 9mm with manual safety, if I recall correctly.

yea that cz 2075 is very appealing to the eye. I'm definately gonna have to see if my local shop carries cz. I have never shot a cz how would you compare its craftmenship to other similar companies. And as far as the budget thing goes, I can live with sacrificing a little extra for the purpose of it, well at least til the wife gets old and wrinkly.

yep, kahr does have one, it was on the home page as soon as I went to their site. A PM9 series, the gun looks good. Can't say the same for the price though. But if i get her that then maybe she won't give me hell about the prices I pay.

I've owned a couple of CZ's, a CZ 75B in 9mm and the 2075 RAMI in 9mm. I miss them both.

The 2075 wasn't particularly snappy since it had a bit of heft to it. It was an easy shooter. The 75B was almost boring. It was 100% dependable and accurate and had great ergonomics.

CZ makes outstanding pistols. Do some homework on them, I think you'll find that those that own them love them.

But, will your wife be interested?

yea CA357, I think she'll be interested, they look similar to the ones she has picked out. She really likes the ones that have a black frame and a stainless slide. She seems to also like the skinnier guns and really wants a man. safety, so she threw out xd's and glock compacts quick.

Keep us in the loop. The search is almost as good as the end result.
