Okay, day one is done.
The Bersa Thunder UC 9mm shoots straight and works great!
One FTE in the very first mag, because I was very floppy with my grip-- it was about the third shot I took with it.
After that, trouble free with all three types of ammo I brought, from 115 grain Hungarian plated MFS to 147 JHP stuff from Winchester.
Shot it out to fifty feet and beyond, managed to hit the 8 inch target with all shots even at those long ranges.. and close in, 15 feet and 25 feet, groups were inside 3 inches... I'm not a good shooter, and still learning the sight picture, so I'm very happy with the way it shoots. Peculiar rear sight visual-- instead of two dots it's a U shape line, squared off, and the muzzle sight dot goes in the center of the U... and the trigger pull in SA is so light, I was pulling it by accident during end of cycle.. double bursts... took some getting used to, but it's the lightest DA pull of anything I've got by far.
I can sure tell it's a carry compact... it leaps pretty good... fired about 250 rounds today and my hand and wrist and elbow have these numb spots.
and when I picked up the Bersa Firestorm .22 to shoot a bit, that little gun felt like a pellet gun, no kick at all.. I was putting holes in holes with that little puppy..
All in all, the short term review is very good. Longer term to come, but I am very glad today that I bought the Bersa Thunder UC 9mm this week... my collection is up to 7, and my wife's Glock 26 isn't even here yet.
