Any of you folks have experience purchasing through Peter Pavia Gun Sales? They are an online seller out of ME.

Today I put a total of 40 rounds through this fine weapon, some of them being hollow points, and it performed great.



Reliability is the key, and you sure have it w/the Bursa. My 380 Thunder performs very well, but not quite the gun that the 45 is. If the 45 wasn't quite as heavy, I might consider wearing it to bed.



You might ask "why just 40 rounds." Well, I have other guns, and by the time you shoot all of them, you are one tired little booger. Five bullets for this great gun.

Update for those of you that were following my journey to get my hands on this gun...



I'm glad to say I should be receiving the Firestorm Mini 9mm (10rd. in nickel) by the middle of next week. I ended up finding a shop in Maine that had it in stock and is sending it to a local FFL.



I'll let you know how my first time at the range with it goes...

My S/S Bersa-Firestorm Mini 9mm finally came in from Maine yesterday. I took it out to the range along w/ my Beretta PX4 40S&W. I shot 147gr. hollows and jacketed through the Mini.



I have to give this gun a five (5) rating all the way! I already shoot better w/ it than my Beretta. None of the approx. 60 rds. I put through it had any issues. I highly recommend this gun to anyone considering it. It looks and shoots wonderfully.

I tried to get me a Bersa from a local shop but they were out of the, none, just like many online sites. I don't know what's going on in Argentina but suppliers aren't getting this wonderful guns; such a shame.

Assistance needed...



Anyone have the Houston paddle holster (#RP43) for this gun? I'm thinking of purchasing it and wanted to get some (real) user comments/reviews first ;-)

Fifty more rounds through this fine gun today. No blips of any kind. And it hits the black part of the target many more times than not. It just continues to amaze me how a gun this powerful can be so accurate.



By the way, it is not nearly as hard to clean as you might think. Matter of fact I think is one of the easiest. It is like the 380 that I have . . . just keeps gettin' better and better.



Five bullets for this excellent gun.

I see a lot of people looking for these. I'm not sure what model it was but Gander Mountain in Knoxville Tennessee had a used Bersa 9MM for sale as of 4/26. You can google their number.

Are the pistols sold under the Firestorm name exactly the same as those sold under the Bersa brand name? I have a hard time finding the "Bersa" in my area but have run across several "Firestorms" at very good prices. Thanks
