I'm new to the forum . I live in Tn. and have a permit to carry my Bersa Ultra Compact in .45 . I carry it every day and have put about 300 rounds through it . Easy to clean and never a had a problem with it . I have a 1911 also . I bought my wife a 9MM in another brand and shes likes my Bersa .45 better than the 9MM I bought her . So I'll be in the market for another Bersa .45 for her .
