One of the guys at the local gun shop uses one as his side arm. he likes it. I've never seen any long term use reports but the initial impressions on Bersas always seem to be favorable.

Don't do a lot for me--would prefer an Officers Model Colt
Me too. I just am not anxious to pay 150% more for the Colt...especially since the Colt may not offer 150% better performance. :wink:

The price is attractive - but honestly I don't know anything about them and I've never fired them.

As you well know - price isn't just about performance - it's in the steel, quality of internal parts, etc. I think in general, you get what you pay for in most guns ( and with higher prices usually comes more durability, better triggers, better barrels, etc ). That is not the case all the time - but in most inexpensive guns - I can't say I've been overly impressed.

DE, I like the compact .45s too but I've noticed that with the Para Ordinance guns most aftermarket parts will not fit them. I'm not sure whether that matters to you but replacement parts will most likely have to come from the manufacturer.

I've heard many good things about Bersa guns but it isn't really my style. Where's the cylinder?
Fuelburns - it took me a few solid seconds to get that joke. i scrolled up and was like... "yeah! where is the cylinder....? OOOH! DUH! its a jam-o-matic!"

I'm partial to wheel guns but do like certain autos myself.

:p I own a few bottom feeders myself but only a few really catch my attention. The Colt 1903, broomhandle Mauser and a few others get me excited. I like the classics.

I carry both the Thunder .380 and .9mm. As far as I'm concerned they are the best buy for the money. .45 is a little heavy for CCW in my book. You know what they say a .380 in the pocket is better than a .45 in the truck. I've literally put at least 1000 rds through each and have never had a jam, stovepipe or misfeed. (can't say as much for my old Llama .45 I traded on the 9) At the price I don't worry about wearing it next to my body (you know sweat is bad on metal) even though in 3 years of carrying them I have never had any issue with rust or the finish. There are some prettier guns out there but I don't think you will find one more reliable (just as reliable yes but not more IMHO)

For you high priced folks go ahead and flame away. :)
