I think I have turned into the High Priest of the one true path of the Bersa Firestorm. Two of my friends liked mine so much, they are each getting one! Funny thing is that one of them had a Walther PPK (like me) had had nothing but grief with it (also like me). I use 8 round 380CC mags in mine, (giving me 8+1 -almost twice the rounds my 2" 38 Special Taurus 85 had onboard) and carry it in an ankle holster when I am doing my Realtor thing. I confess, however, I carry the CZ83 (13+1) when wearing jeans or shorts and untucked shirts.
