BERSA BP 9 CC PISTOL REVIEW

 
 REVIEW QUESTION

Is the BERSA BP 9 CC PISTOL a reliable, practical, affordable option for personal defense?

PROS                                                

  • Reasonable price
  • Concealable size
  • Usable grip height (Some concealable handguns have short grips, and this makes it difficult to get all of your shooting hand around the grip, and this can reduce controllability; however, the grip of this handgun allowed me to get all of my shooting hand around the grip, and this lead to very controllable shooting.)
  • Round indicator
  • Built-in safety lock system (Firing pin block for drop safety)
  • Very short trigger reset for fast follow-up shots (I felt the rest on this handgun was even shorter than my “Springfield Armory”, XDm.)
  • Weaver rail for installation of laser or light options
  • Usable size front and rear sights (I had no difficulty at all in using the sights on this handgun to deliver fast accurate hits on target.)
  • Point and shoot ergonomic design for easy aiming
  • Controllable recoil for multiple accurate hits
  • Accurate at personal defense distances (I was able to get single head shot hits and multiple rapid heads shots hits at 20 feet.)
  • Ambidextrous magazine releases 

 Cons                                      

  • Complicated disassembly
  • Limited holster selection
  • No trigger safety like the “Glocks” or “Springfield Armory”, XD & XDm models
  • No grip safety like the “Springfield Armory”
  • No cocked indicator like the “Springfield Armory’s”, XDms
  • Quick magazine drops are not uniform with all these pistols (The magazines with my “Bersa”, “BP9CC” do not drop free from the magazine well, I have to pull them out; however, I saw another “Bersa”, “BP9CC”, and it’s magazine dropped free with no assists.)

CONCLUSION

When it comes to a personal defense firearm, reliability is the number one concern, so we recommend that you buy the best quality practical firearm and personal defense ammunition. However, usually these higher quality firearms come with a higher price. In our Country’s current tough economic times, these higher prices can make those firearms unaffordable for a lot of us out there, so we must look for more affordable reliable personal defense firearm options.
 
The “BERSA”, “BP9” CONCEALED CARRY PISTOL is a more affordable reliable personal defense handgun. So much so, I purchased one myself. That’s right folks; I walk it like I talk it. With practical personal defense “Flex-Tip” ammunition that we researched for assured expansion, this pistol should be looked at as a reliable, practical, affordable option for personal defense.
