I am considering these two guns for my carry weapon. I have read good things about both guns. Just wanted to come on here and get some expert opinions before I decide. Which would you choose and why?? Also, is there another gun you would recommend over these two in the same price range?? Thanks in advance for any help.
You'll need to decide which manual of arms is best for you. The Bersa is a DA/SA. The Taurus PT 111 has a unique system. It is SA (assumming the chamber is loaded), and becomes DA only if the cartriage misfires. This gives what Taurus refers to as a "second strike" capability. It does have a safety.
I prefer DA/SA. I have the Taurus PT 92. It is DA/SA. Thus, I would choose the Bersa.
I also like to see whether or not the hammer is actually cocked.
