    Sorry, no BP9 or BP40 in my stable. I do however have a 9mm & a 40 and recommend the 40 over the 9MM. The 40 is less snappy and easier to get back on target faster. A whole lot less recoil IMO. I'm trading the 9mm in because of that for a .45. Even less recoil that the 40. :) I buy full size in these calibers.

    The BP40 is not available yet, and probably wont be until mid-2013 (at the earliest). Hopefully, that makes your decision easier! The BP9 is an awesome pistol!

    If it helps in your decesion making I can offer this. According to reports police agencies all over are swapping the 40 for 9s to vastly reduce costs. The 40 is overkill (no pun intended) and the nine is just fine. The 45 has less, far less, snappy recoil than a 9 or 40 as the 45 loops along at a very slow sub 1000 fps compaires to the 9s 1000+ fps.

    Reliable gun,BP CC 9 mm. I've had mine for 6 months. No problems with it so far.It takes some getting used to the trigger on it. Sometimes the magazine release is a little stiff but I suppose it needs time to loosen up a bit.Accuracy is outstanding for a compact pistol. Recoil isn't bad,the blast is pretty loud!Easy to takedown once you read the directions and do it several times to get the hang of it. I mucked it up several times before I got the hang of it. Cleaning it is simple.Once the magazine springs got broken in I've had no problems with jams. The first 50 rounds I had several jams[about5]. After that no problems. I used 115 grain hollow points[handloads I made] factory FMJ147 grain without any issues. I have 200 rounds or so through the pistol. It is so nice to carry this gun in hot weather because it's so light and conceals well in pocket carry[carpenter pants] or ankle carry or IWB. I hope this helps with your decision.

    I like the BP9CC. Will it handle 9mm +P & +P+ loads?

    Hello From East Tn. First post here.
    I purchased a BP9cc this past friday at a gun show in knoxville. I took it to the range yesterday,ran about 100 rounds without a hitch.Very nice trigger,easy to keep on target. This will be my new CC weapon. I have Bersa 380 cc but the BP9 fits my larger hands very well. I Like it !!!

    Pleased w/my BP9cc, but maybe a little on the light side regards to overall weight (nonetheless a keeper). I'd think a .40 would provide just a little more weight, a good thing.

    BTW, I did not know the BPcc came in .40S&W?
