    Was at my buddys pawn shop today checking to see if he had anything that I absolutely had to have and got to looking at the new Bersa BP9CC. I got to say I really liked how the gun felt, Polymer frame, 8rd mag, thin,light and really fely good. Has anyone tried one of these and if so what did you think of it. If it is anything as close to the thunder as far as performance and reliability I want one. For the price it was $349 which I didnt think was bad at all, I know now what I want for christmas! :D

    beyound the box. Quicker to look it up and see its there newest very different pistol.


    Billy . Bersa makes solid pistols. I would not worry abut it shooting well or accuracy any more than any other make. Just look for a holster design that you want as its new enought you may be some what limited for holsters compaired to other make handguns. Might even check at bersa chat.

    I have "fondled" the BP9CC a couple weeks ago at a Gander Mtn store. It soon will be my SECOND Bersa! I never thought I would go for a DA only SEMIAUTO either.

    I'm glad I came upon this post. I have been interested in this brand and would love to know more. GSs in my area are very negative towards this brand. So much so that none have a 9mm in stock. One or two employees (not in the same store) have referred to Bersa as similar to Kel-Tec or DB, neither are considered to be worthy of owning. Could be that they have not read/studied the brand? I'm interested in your thoughts.

    Those guys are just gun snobs. A person could do way worse than a KT p11 for a defencive pistol than a 14oz pistol with 10 rounds in it and a older s&w model 59 mag as back up. Thats 15 more rounds. Funny how foolish some peoples views are.

    If you read the oost above yours carefully, it's not the guys that are gun snobs, it's the poster. I see nothing wrong with KT or DB, as long as they work properly. BTW, Ruger stole KT's design for the LCP, guess they thought of them high.

    Why would you say it is my fault. I'm only posting what I was told, and that was Bersa is not a good brand to consider owning... which is why I made my post so I could find out from the members who actually own/use them.

    Make sure you read carefully before posting any inaccuracy.

    Thanks for the input, I have owned a couple of the 380 Thunders and they are a damn good little gun as well as the kel-tec's, I have no complaints about either one. But this new BP9 was a darn good feeling handgun, I have got a feeling that this years christmas bonus will be spent on a Bersa!!!!:D

    . I like bersa and a one of my girls has a bersa 380CC, What I do see wrong with the bp9 is it weights more than a glock 19 has a shorter barrel at only 3.3" and is taller and longer, just a bit thinner and that takes it out of the running for CC for me. I like the KT p11 for a small 9mm and the the kahr cw9for a basic compact all around pistol and it has a longer barrel, is ligher and thinner and easy to shoot also. I would buy a 3rd gen glock or a tp9 befor the bersa bp9. .

    Bingo...

    I bought a KT P11 when they first hit the market and the BU Smith Mag to go with it. Phenomenal value and capacity for a then "soldiers salary" with a young Familly.

    Only complaint about KT is there triggers. I've since graduated to more refined toys but KT and Bersa are both reputable builders will good value in there products.

    I've owned a BP9CC for about 6 months. Bought it from Bud's on line
    for 330.00. Great pistol! I call it my "mini glock" Reliable, pretty accurate
    at 20 yards, nice trigger, short reset travel easy to tear down and best
    of all, easy to conceal.
