I would also like to add that this bersa has a substantial amount of trigger creep (slack). A little over a quarter of an inch. This being compared to my S.A. XD which can't have more than 1/16th of an inch, if that.

Another note, It's not as accurate as a longer barreled ruger p89 at 35 yards. Obviously due to barrel length. But, I like the clean break of the trigger on the bersa compared to the ruger.

Hello,

I'm trying to decide between the Bersa Mini Thunder 9mm and a XD Sub-Compact 9mm for concealed carry. I would appreciate any comments and advice that could help me with my decision. Dependability and accuracy is a concern around the 25 yard range.

Thanks

What is the preferred manner to release the hammer with a live round in the Chamber on a Bersa 9mm Ultra Compact?

The Bersa 9mm Ultra Compact is a SA/DA decocker. The preferred method for releasing the hammer with a live round in the chamber - safely, without firing - is simply to point the gun in a safe direction and push up on the decocker/safety. The gun will decock.



The preferred method for releasing the hammer if your life is in danger from a rapidly approaching armed aggressor is to aim for center of mass and pull the trigger.



Hope this helps.

You're welcome, Rick! I trust my life most days - and most nights - to my Bersa UC9. Not because it's the most accurate and reliable handgun that I own - that would be my CZ75BD 9mm - but because it is almost as accurate and almost as reliable as any handgun I own, and easier to carry and conceal than my CZ75BD or my Ruger P95DC.



If I was on high alert and had reason to believe I was going into an especially high danger situation, I would likely choose my P95DC or my CZ75BD. But since my perceived threat level most days is relatively low, I am very comfortable with the Bersa UC9.

I was browsing at a gun show and discovered that Bersa makes a 9mm and 45acp, so I bought a 45, and lo and behold, it is as good a 45 as a Colt defender that I used to have. Little bit of kick at firing time, but nothing that I can't handle. My big hands and a firm grip on the gun make it a fine weapon. I highly recommend the gun.

To Rick1256 . . . All you need to do is push up on the safety and the hammer will automatically de-cock. keyman.

Just purchased the Thunder 40 . Does anyone know where I can get a duty holster for this gun. I need a level2. If so I need to know the name and model of the holster. I have a paddle holster for this just need the duty holster now. This gun shots sooooo much better than that damn Glock23 I had.
