I'm an old retired guy living in Rhode Island with enough land for daily practice in the back yard. I'm still waiting for my first Bersa Thunder to come to the LGS from their distributor. When I first inquired, there were plenty in stock and two days later, when I placed my order, the cupboard was bare. My friend at the LGS asked what color I wanted and I told him it really didn't matter. I just want the first one in. I've never shot one, but I've heard nothing but rave reviews of this little beauty. The cache' of the Walther PPK name dulled quickly when I realized that I can have two Bersas for the price of one. And, there are features of the Bersa that really make it a better gun. Photos and a range report will follow as soon as I get my hands on it.
