Just checking in to say Howdy from Reno, NV. Bought my BP9CC about a month ago and it is one rocking pistol! Since I'm mainly a S&W guy, I was seriously looking at the Shield. After doing some internet surfing, the BP9CC popped up as a comparable alternative. My LGS had the two in stock so I could do a side by side. There was a lot of chatter about the stiff Shield trigger and the awesome Bersa trigger. It was a no-brainer, the Bersa won out. After few range trips, it has me broke in. I say it that way because any new handgun takes a bit to get used to. This little guy will eat my reloads without a hitch. Thanks Bersa for making a great gun!
