    Big D, It's great news that you came out of the hospital! What did they try and do, implant a liberal chip in your brain? :) Glad you found us!

            Re California

            I'm in the middle of my 10 day waiting period for my 1st Bersa...a lil 380 Thunder Duotone. To buy it I had to show driver's license, handgun safety cert. (which expires at the end of the year and I'll have to re-take the test and pay more gun tax), proof of residency in the state (because their own DL's aren't reliable)? Now, can you guess which western state I'm in? Could it be....California?? Don't get me wrong, I was born and raised just north of L.A. In my heart it is still the best state in the union EXCEPT for the social and political decay which is now rancid. I love the coastline, I do building and pool maintenance, the outdoors, old b&w movies, and of course shooting. I'm mainly a rifle guy though. Looks like I'm starting to ramble. A member of TFL recommended this site so here I am. Hello.

                  Welcome, Beach Brat, to a fun forum with lots of great info about Bersa guns. I bot two in the last month - BT380 DuoTone with Crimson Tide laser in the handle. A jot to fire and very accurate. My wife, when she finally fires it, will love the fact that a bullet follows the laser trail. I think you'll love it to.

                  One tip, when reassembling it, be sure the smaller end of the spring is over the barrel. This small difference is not very noticeable but proper placement is critical.

                        Well, this looks like a dead thread... no one's posted on this thread for almost 2 years. I know Bersa's are not a prominent gun in California, only the Thunder 380 is CA approved, so I cannot even see or touch a BT22, or a Bersa in 9mm, 40, or 45, or any of the other versions of the 380. Oh well, maybe someday I'll talk my wife into moving... somewhere where we can buy and own all the guns we want....

                        Until then, anyone else here from the Sacramento area?

                          You're probably right about just not being a lot of Bersa owners, plus a lot of gun owners don't join forums unless they have a problem & are looking for help. Maybe you could pass the word that owning a Bersa is not a requirement & lots of good info on here about other brands/platforms, not to mention that it is the home of the "Endless Hijacked Thread".
