I'm friends with the Bersa factory manager, and I was at the show were they announced the new gun (a sort of 3rd world SHOT show). It looks interesting, but I'd rather spend a little more and get something nicer.
Bersas are always available, and I can buy one whenever I want. American and European guns, on the other hand, don't arrive in very large numbers and gun shops only stock one of each model (and, of course, we only get a few models from each brand). I'll move on to Bersas once I'm done with all the Colts, Sigs and Smith & Wessons I'm interested in.
Don't get me wrong, they are decent weapons for the price, but since the factory is half an hour away from my house and I can afford them without too much planning they aren't at the top of my list.
