Found this forum via KTOG.

The Missus and I bought our Bersa 380CC's back in 2008; I'm selling mine to my adult son because I recently "upgraded" to a 380 Plus (only have to be half as accurate with 15 rounds).

We also have a pair of (Bersa) Firestorm 22's for practice and introducing friends to shooting.

Welcome to the family! I always thought the Plus was pretty accurate.

Are you shooting 6:00 or covering target?
Top of sight blades even with vertical center of target (where the little "10" is), so I'd call that "covering bottom half of target" (see attachment below).

Also, take into account I'm 65 and usually wear bifocals (I use my "computering" glasses that focus at about two feet for range shooting to get a good focus on the front sight - rear sight and target are blurred at that point). I was pretty darned happy I got all 15 into the pericardium!

Fine shooting there Doc! In my younger days I worried more about group size and cutting out the X ring and such things. My eyesight isn't as good as it once was either. Recently I have started practicing using no sights at all, and holding my pistol extended at about waist height firing one-handed only (with each hand), so I'm happy if it hits the silhouette at all :) Actually the last time I did that, shooting from about the 7 yard line, I put 49 of 50 into a normal sized silhouette target (no idea where that 50th round went unless one of the two-hole groups was really a 3-hole). They were kind of scattered around a bit on the target but if it had been a bad guy he would have been having a real bad day.

I'm still trying to work on the muscle memory but I'm actually quite surprised how quickly you can learn to shoot like that and get good center-of-mass hits even firing left handed from waist height. Oddly enough, I get my best results shooting my Bersa Thunder 45 like that. I guess it just points naturally.

.....I got all 15 into the pericardium!
Oh, yeah... that's extremely accurate. That's what I expect of a Plus. However, if you got all 15 around the pericardium (or even the myocardium, itself), then that target is much, much smaller than I expected.

In any case, very fine shootin'!!!

. . . if you got all 15 around the pericardium (or even the myocardium, itself), then that target is much, much smaller than I expected. . . .
If I misused "pericardium" (I meant the sac surrounding the heart), it's because my doctorate is in psychology, not medicine.

I think that target is 5" x 7" - it looks about the same size as my heart was on the xray they took before my quad bypass (they said I had an enlarged heart, but I like to think of myself as "big hearted" - it just sounds better).
:D

Yeah, the pericardium is the sac surrounding the heart. However, the sac is relatively thin and goes all around the heart, so if you hit the peri, you pretty much hit the heart.

I don't have a completed degree in anything related to Human Anatomy and Physiology, but I did stay at the Holiday Inn Express last night!

My mother had a quad bypass. Stayed in ICU for 8 days and I was bustin' my butt for the next two months taking care of her. Poor thing... she really was in a lot of pain.
