Greetings, all! I'm an American missionary in Brazil (rural Sao Paulo/Parana states). I had a Bersa .380 CC as my carry gun at one point back in the US (sold it to a friend in a fit of stupidity), and I am currently navigating the mind-numbing bureaucracy in order to get one here in Brazil. Pricewise, they seem to be more reasonable (at around $900) than Glocks and S&W's (which the local gun store is selling for $2,500 apiece). The owner of the gun store that I'm working with is telling me that Bersa never really caught on in Brazil, and that I might be better off with a more expensive gun. Does anybody here have any experience with Bersas in Brazil--or South America? Is there any advice you'd like to give as regards navigating the gun-ownership bureaucracy and gun purchase? More specifically, does anyone have any experience with Bersa's warranties and parts availability south of the equator?
