Tough call for me! Never had a Bersa, do not plan to get one, due to PT111 working for me, holstered or pocket. I wear a lot of Cargo style pants these days, as tight jeans cause me back problems if I put a belt on with them. Just hits me wrong, so if it works for you, that is what matters. My loaded PT111 seems lighter in the pocket than a Rossi 357, and gives me double the rounds too.jonyrotten said:my point being, comparared to a bersa 95, which i carry now. better or worse fo CC. it's about the same weight, within an ounce. it's about the same size (the bersa has a wide grip frame). and i get 9mm and more of them.
that's my point. i don't loose anything in size, weight, and i gain something in ass and capacity. does anyone see a down side to this? forgive me, i'm an engineer, i may tend to over analyze before i make a purchaseWildRice said:I decided not to go below 9mm in power in a carry pistol, so I don't have a 380.
the first thing i looked at was a keltec. after much research, i don't trust the reliability, not to mention the "liable to break in my big ass hand" syndrome. i'm a 6'3" 250lbs wilting flower. and before you say anything about taurus reliability, check my other posts on this board. i've never had a taurus fail me. ever. i've got 6 going as far back as 10 years and have never had a single issue with any of them. zip zero nada. that's why i'm looking at the 111. but i'd rather have that walther if you want the truth (oops, didn't mention that. the new walther PPS. but as i've said elsewhere, they are damn near impossible to find. and if you do, it's probably going to end up double the MSRP)NYPD in AZ said:So why not get a Kel-Tec P11?
Easier to pocket than a PT111 and also less expensive.
of course, this begs the question, "ever been hit in the gut with 7 .380's?" you'll cry to mamatexastaurusguy said:I just can't see putting my life in the hands of a .380
