Should I call you "Buzz"? LoL!! You made two good choices, no question about that. But what to choose? If you break it down, my vote goes toward the Bersa. Let me explain what I mean, if I can! The CZ 75B is an all steel gun, and heavy at 35 oz. Also comes with a 4.7 (5) inch barrel which makes for a large concealed carry option that many people would rather avoid. Because of it's weight the recoil should be very manageable. I didn't like the trigger reach on this either, too long for my medium size paw. It comes with a 15 round mag or less. I got a price of $455.00 on it which is highest of the group here. Another pistol in the CZ family you should look at is the CZ 75D PCR Compact. It has an aluminum frame and steel slide which will increase felt recoil but it's very manageable IMO. It weighs 27 oz and has a 3.9 inch barrel. That will make it better for carry. It also comes with a decocker which is a great feature, I really like it. The last price I saw on one of these was $525.00. Truth is CZ has quite a few variants and you really have to do your homework before buying one. Now the Bersa Thunder Pro HC9 comes along and confuses everyone!! I'm amazed that Bersa isn't flying off the shelves and tables at gun shows! They're an excellent deal for the money. I have a Thunder 9 UC and love it, but I'll try to keep my remarks neutral, lol! It comes with an aluminum alloy frame, steel slide and you can get it duo tone if you want. It's fully ambidextrous which is a major plus. It's a little heavier than the CZ 75D but much lighter than the 75B. This also comes with a 17 round capacity. At 30.7 oz and a 4.25 inch barrel this should be a good CCW gun. Bersa's all come with a lifetime warranty too. I just got a price NIB for $388.00, so it's definitely affordable. I'm sure I bounced around with those descriptions, so I hope you let me know if you have any questions about my commentary! I have a habit of doing that, ha!! Good luck with your decision Buzz and let us know what you decide. By the way, Welcome to the Forum!
