    I have been wanting to get this gun for some time now, but NO gun stores in my area carry these. You can find the Thunder 380's all day long, and sometimes the Ultra Compact models, but not the BP9cc.

    Anyone here own one that would be kind enough to share your thoughts on the pistol? I can't get my hands on one to check out :mad:

    Have not been to the Range with my new BP9cc, yet. Very easy to conceal. (Dry Fire) love the trigger action. At www.bersa.com select the handgun & based on your area you will find a Gun Dealer.

    :cool:

    I have sold several of them, and got one for myself. The trigger is the best I have felt on a striker fired gun, and the size is about perfect for me. It is light and slim, but still large enough to be comfortable to shoot at the range.

    Hello!,my first post here on this forum! I have the Bersa BP CC 9 MM. I bought it at a gun show in May. I couldn't find it locally but when I saw it I knew immediately that I had to have it! I already own the Thunder .380 in duo tone. The Thunder is great in every way.Concealibility,reliability and accurate. However the BP CC is that and more. It is a single stack Glock for all practical purposes. It even fits in some of my Glock holsters.The trigger is great. The only complaint I have is that the trigger can bite your finger if you're not used to it.It fits great in my hands. I have small,fat,heavily calloused fingers.The accuracy is outstanding and the reset on the trigger is great!

    I had one. It was my carry gun for over a year. I deeply regret selling it, but hard times demanded it. I will surely get another one and carry.

    It was a great gun. Shot well, awesome trigger, accurate, always went "BANG!"

    Went to indoor shooting range the other day. My BP9cc is awesome! The light trigger pull equals bullseye almost every time, which included one handed grip shooting. Definitely my EDC!

    Just read a lot of favorable reviews on this gun. Maybe will buy it once I have some extra $$$! I want to keep any "stable" of handguns in 9mm!!

    I just bought my first Bersa yesterday, a BP9CC. I went to a new gun shop in town that I had seen advertising on a gun trader site, hoping to check out a few options for concealed carry. I have had a CCP for almost 2 years, but have yet to find a pistol I could both afford and want to carry. I was looking for something like a Kahr CW9, or one of the compact Springfields, Ruger or S&W, and wanted to handle one, feel the grip angle, see how it was made, etc. So this little gun shop had about 30 guns in some display cases. Considering ordering one online entails shipping, FFL fees, etc. his prices were pretty good. After looking at a few, I narrowed it down to either a Kahr CW45 or the Bersa BP9CC. Similar in size, both looked nice and well made. But I had decided I wanted a 9mm, and the feel was good, the trigger nice, so I went ahead and got the Bersa. I plan to go to the range this evening and poke some holes in a target. I'll post some more thoughts after I kill some paper.

    I went to the range today and shot the pistol for the first time. I forgot to mention that this was a used pistol, not brand new. It looks like new, except it appeared all the new gun grease and goop was already cleaned. I did a quick wipe down and ran a patch down the pipe, etc. but didn't strip it down for a thorough cleaning. So I took some old PMC FMJ 115gr ammo I've had for about 5 years (19 rounds), a new box of PMC FMJ I bought from Dick's Sporting Goods, another box of Hornady Steel Match JHP, and a box of reloads I bought from the gun dealer when I got the gun.

    Two mags full of the old PMC worked great, put all 16 in the black of an 8 inch target from 10 yards. First one was almost dead center (blind luck!). Next mag had some of the reloads and the rest of the old PMC. The third round (a reload) had a light strike. Fifth round, another reload, light strike. Last 3 rounds (all old PMC) worked fine. So I'm thinking the reloads suck.

    Load up a couple of mags with the new PMC. All fire great. Trigger is nice, recoil not bad, quick to get back on target even shooting one-handed quick-fire. Load another mag full of new PMC. First 2 rounds light strike. Next 4 fire fine, then another light strike. Last one fires. I reload two of the light strike PMCs - they fire this time. So I tried a couple of the light strike reloads again. They fire. So now I'm thinking it's the pistol. Finished off the PMC, and had 2 more light strikes, put them back in the mag and they fired.

    Next I tried the Hornadys. Shot all 50, had 4 light strikes that all fired off second try. Had one FTF, when it seemed the rounds got stuck in the mag (Hornadys). It was like the rims were catching on each other. I unloaded the mag, reloaded the same rounds, no more problems.

    When it fired it was a pretty sweet gun. But the light strikes are something I can't have in a EDC gun. I've read some things about others having this problem when there's some residue from the packing grease in the striker channel. I'm going to strip it down and clean it as best I can, oil it up and give it another 100 rounds of factory ammo. If I can get through 2 boxes without another light strike, I'll feel better about using this for EDC.

    Update: Field stripped and cleaned the pistol using brake cleaner, then used some silicone spray lube on the trigger action and into the striker channel. Didn't remove the firing pin, as I wasn't sure how to do so. I just sprayed the brake cleaner in there until it wasn't coming out brown!

    Took it to the range today, and had 2 boxes of white box Winchester 115gr FMJ from Sports Authority, and about 30 rounds of the reloads I bought with the gun. First box of Winchesters worked flawlessly, really got my hopes up. Then I put a mag full of reloads through the pistol - worked fine! Loaded another mag of reloads, and tried some quick fire, shooting 8 rounds in about 2-3 seconds to warm the gun up. Put in another mag full of reloads. First round, light strike. Second fired. Third, light strike. 4th, light strike. Pulled mag, let pistol sit for about 5 minutes, put in a mag of Winchesters. All 8 fired using a steady rate of fire, one shot about every 3 seconds. Put in another mag of reloads, same steady rate. All fired. Loaded 8 more Winchesters, fired all 8 in about 5 seconds. Loaded last of the reloads, had 2 more light strikes. Put in some more Winchesters, one light strike. Let gun sit for a few minutes, and fired off the last couple of mags of Winchesters with no light strikes, one FTF (I think I limp-wristed it a bit). Put all the light strike rounds back in a mag, and three of the reloads fired, and so did the Winchester.

    So I think there's still some cleaning and maybe some polishing needed. I found some instructions on removing and cleaning the firing pin and striker channel (hope that's the proper terminology!). This is my first striker fired pistol, and it seems this is a common problem with the BP9CC, but it can be fixed with some proper cleaning and maintenance. Might also go ahead and polish the feed ramp a bit as I've read some reports of FTF with certain hollow points.

    Now as far as shooting it, this is a keeper if I can take the light strikes out of the equation. Nice trigger, quick follow-up. I can put 8 rounds into an 8 inch circle at 10 yards in about 3 seconds, and can hit a zombie in the head from 7 yards every time! Due to an injury to my right thumb years ago, my knuckle sticks up a bit while gripping, and that knuckle takes a beating from the top curve of the backstrap. Don't notice it much until after about 50 rounds. Since this isn't really a range gun, but meant to be used for EDC, there won't be many sessions where I'll shoot more than 50 rounds through it once I get it working properly.

    I have a Bersa Thunder 9 UC and love the gun. I will probably add the BP9CC as a lighter CCW as it gets very favorable reviews so far.
    Keep us posted. Thanks.

    NJM: Have one and love it. Very smooth and light trigger. very manageable recoil for a compact, little muzzle flip and can stay on target in rapid fire. It is one of my ccw. The other is a Glock27.
