    Re: Arkansas

    I am a new Bersa owner in Paragould, AR.

    I bought a Bersa Thunder Pro UC in 9 mm. and love it so much (it fits my small hand perfectly) that I just ordered a Bersa Thunder Pro .40 S&W HC---not for concealed carry but just because I love shooting my Bersa 9 and I thought the BERSA HC in 40 would be a great gun for accuracy.

    I have been a hunter all my life, but only recently thought of buying a gun just for self-defense and concealed carry (the Bersa Thunder Pro 9 UC). But I have enjoyed it so much I ordered the .40 for more power.

    I would be happy to hear what kind of holsters ya'll like to use for the 9 UC and also the .40 HC.

    What's up neighbor? Bersa Thunder UC Pro 9 owner in Springdale here. Love the Bersa, but joined board with question - has anyone heard of issues with slide fracturing? I've got between 200-300 rounds thru it and have noticed crack around barrel hole in slide. Gun has not been dropped. Appreciate any feedback.

    Re: Arkansas

    Welcome to Bersa Chat Fourhogs. Sorry to hear about your Bersa problems. That's the first I've heard of that. I think one of our members had a UC45 that developed a crack in the slide, but I don't remember where it was. If you are the original owner, it's under warranty. There is a list of warranty centers on the forum & also a sub forum for feedback on them. It wouldn't hurt to call Eagle Imports @ (732) 493-0333 & talk to them about it. They may say just send in the old slide, which you can do yourself via USPS. Then they may think the whole pistol must be sent to a warranty center to see if they can find the cause. If that's the case, your dealer or any FFL can ship it for you via USPS a lot cheaper than you can ship it via UPS or Fedex overnight. Just be sure to give him the shipping info of the center you wish to use. Let us know how it comes out.

    Re: Arkansas

    Hi, Warhawk. I live in Paragould in NE Arkansas. Looks like we have enough BersaChat members in the Hot Springs area for us to have a Bersa meet-greet-n-shoot.

    Oh for those who wonder why it is pronounced "Arkansaw"; it is a Native American Indian word. The French probably did the transliteration of the original word, so it came out with the typically wierd French spelling.

    OK: here's an etymology:

    Arkansas
    organized as a U.S. territory 1819 (admitted as a state 1836), named for the Arkansas River, which was named for a Siouan tribe.

    The spelling of the term represents a French plural, Arcansas, of a name applied to the Quapaw people who lived on the Arkansas River; their name was also written in early times as Akancea, Acansea, Acansa (Dickinson, 1995). This was not the name used by the Quapaws themselves, however. The term /akansa/ was applied to them by Algonquian speakers; this consists of /a-/, an Algonquian prefix found in the names of ethnic groups, plus /kká:ze, a Siouan term refering to members of the Dhegiha branch of the Siouan family. This stem is also the origin for the name of the Kansa tribe and of the state of Kansas; thus the placenames Arkansas and Kansas indirectly have the same origin. [William Bright, "Native American Placenames of the United States," 2004]

    I realize this post was a few years old, but....

    In Southern Kansas, the Arkansas river is pronounced AR-KANSAS River

    We are originally from Kansas, but my folks were Arkies. So the Arkinsaw vs Ar-Kansas thing is old hat.

    Do any of you Hot Springs area folks shoot at MVSA or Jan Morgan's indoor range?
