Wow I bet most people who "hate " Bersa never took the time to shoot one. I have heard people give my SR-9's a load of bad mouthing, My Bersa Thunder CC a bunch of bad mouthing and I am looking at a Stoeger Cougar right now and have heard my gun friends laugh that I would stoop so low. All of them have lost alot of respect from me because of their narrow mindedness. I own a Harley but I also own a Suzuki and a Kawasaki. I hear the same ignorant retoric from motorcycle people I am hearing from gun people. It bumms me out.
Look for the good in the gun and allow the owner to enjoy his choice and take pride in his or her weapon. A Glock was untested at one time too. If buying a Bersa expands the group of people that do what we do it is a good thing. If buying a Bersa allows someone to protect them self for 350 bucks as opposed go unprotected because they can not afford 600 bucks and their bills cut them slack.
.........It's that you shoot!
