I'm just curious if they are close to good enough to use as a bullseye competiton pistol? There are no off the shelf bullseye guns that I know of except for 22 LR. I was surprised my Browning Buckmark with CCI Blazer hods the x ring at 50 yds ;-))

Hyperme, you have a big problem and is not your Bersa, it is your wall. Just kidding. Joking aside, it is good that your Bersa is ejecting your expended cartriges with a consistent force. That means your ejection mechanism is functioning as it should. I would be worried if it just ejected weakly to the point of not bouncing against a wall beside you. Hope you have taken my comment in good jest. I love my Bersa.

Just spent the day at the range with my Bersa UC Thunder .40 cal., my Bersa Thunder .22LR, my Ruger SP101 .357mag., and my Ruger P95 9mm. Have no idea how many 100's of rounds I put thru them, all of them flawless. I rid the world of many deadly paper targets and single-handedly rejuvenated the handgun ammunition industry. Yep, 'twas a good day.

Aren't those Bersa's an excellent pistol? I've got

the Thunder UC in 9mm and love it! I've never had a single

problem with it and don't expect to. What is your accuracy like

with the 40? The 9 is great!

TIG, accuracy is PHENOMENAL! I shot from 21 feet to about 45 feet and had groupings of 3 inches at 21 feet and groupings of about 5 1/2 inches at 45 ft(although these were from a seated position with it resting on bench). All in all, the hit of the day was the Bersa Thunder .22 LR. Man, what a FUN firearm! One-handed, standing position, 10 rounds in about 3 seconds. Tore up the inside of the bullseye at 12 feet. I inquired about the .380 and my dealer said they were pricey and not worth the hype. The ammo is WAY over priced and for self defense application, the 9mm or .40 were far and beyond the better choice.When I am just sitting around the house, like now, I am carrying the Bersa .40 caliber. If I could carry out concealed (no can do here in Illinois...wink), it would be my Kel Tec P11 9mm simply for small size/large caliber.Yessir, I DO love my Bersas

Stormtown, sure you know, but clean the beejeebers out of this firearm before you fire it. Bersa tends to put quite a bit of protectant on their weapons prior to shipping. Enjoy! Be sure to post your results.
