    Hi everyone!

    Nice forum you've set up here. I've been a regular on the Bersachat forums for a couple of years and saw someone mention this new one over there.

    Thought I'd register and say hello!

    I've got a couple of Bersas as well as a few other guns. If I were richer I'd have a lot more than I do. If I were retired I'd shoot a lot more than I do. But I'm neither so my acquisitions are few and my range time is limited!

    Hope to be able to contribute and participate now and then.

    Thanks for having me,

    If I can figure out how to use my wife's iPad to take the pics and upload them to photobucket, I'll try to get it done.

    Though they are stock Bersa pistols so they look pretty much like all of them do. I have a nickel 380 (looks like the one in my avatar) and a matte black UC 45 Pro, which looks like they normally do (including the blotchy slide finish).

    I occasionally toy with the idea of getting the 45's slide cerakoted but I can never decide on the color!

    LOL....hopefully not near the intersection of Lamar and S. Parkway. I live about 60 miles from the city limits and can count on one hand how many times I have been within the city in a decade.

    Welcome JC. I live just off of Lamar (US 78) in Union County MS. I grew up near Memphis and a seldom week went by from the time I was born until I was mid-20s that I wasn't in the city. My little sister works in Downtown, and I think I still have a couple of relatives living there.

    The N. Mississippi suburbs have pretty much everything I need....excepting a decent Oriental grocery. The Winchester Farmer's Market is the only place I've been in the city in over two years, and highly recommended if you are into cooking Asian or Hispanic.

    Are there any decent ranges in or near the city? I know the one on Brooks that was visible from the interstate has been closed for some time. No ranges out here in the sticks. :(
