Default Hello from GA

Hello everyone. Purchased a BP9CC last year at a gun show. With the passage of campus carry in Georgia, I recently started carrying it daily. I have had my permit for awhile, but it was difficult to commit to EDC with classes everyday. That's all better now.

Knew nothing about the BP when I bought it. Went to the show considering several other 9mm single stacks, and the salesman showed me the BP new for a great price. Did some super fast research at the show, saw an overall good impression, and just did it. No regrets at all, great pistol.

I've been carrying it AIWB everyday for about 3 weeks in a kydex holster, still unchambered. I know, but it's hard to stomach it pointing right at my manhood. I check the trigger multiple times a day and it's never been engaged, so I need to just get over it.

Other guns include a 10/22 I got when I was 12, a factory AR, a homebrew AR "pistol", a browning 28" pump, and a 4.5 XDm 9mm. Pictured is the BP in its carry setup. Only "mods" are some testors paint on the sights and the tractiongrips, which I highly recommend.

Welcome from East TN. I like the BP9 and would love to have one myself. Yes, even Hickock45 thinks the trigger is pretty light so I can understand your concern about risk. Maybe training to draw and rack? Or, a trigger stop. I don't know much about kydex and its safety on the trigger.

Welcome from the "Garden State" of New Jersey.

You can count me in that group too, because I really like the BP's, but just can't get over that damn near "Hair Like Trigger" as well!

I've practiced my draw a lot, both unloaded at home and at the range with live fire. I have zero issues keeping my finger off the trigger until on target, which the little stippled rests help with quite a bit. I think I just need to learn more about the safety mechanisms, specifically the firing pin block. This sig p320 drop safe failure didn't help...

Welcome and I too carry the BP9. I did a write up on here several years back on the BP9, I think it's one of the best out of the box firearms and triggers out there. I still carry mine quite often but I do rotate my EDC depending on my dress, what I'm doing or where I'm going for the day. Rotation includes The Bersa BP9, snub nose .38 and my FNS9 or a combo of two. I started using Theis holsters few years back and have them for all my carry guns in the leather/kydex hybrid holsters. Got my wife a Glock 43 last year which she hasn't shot much but I would take my Bersa BP over the Glock any day.
