When Obama first got elected, I was pretty sure that the return of the Clinton 10 round mag limitation was not to far behind. A had a little extra cash, but not a lot. I went to the gun store to find me a budget full size high capacity 9mm pistol. When I first saw the Bersa Thunder 9, I really liked the look of it, but I did not recognize the manufacturer, so I kept looking. I kept coming back to it though, drawn like a magnet to it. The store was only asking $249 for it and every other high capacity 9mm pistol was over $400 and out of my range at the time. Finally, I asked the store owner about it. When he told me that Bersa was an Argentina manufacturer that made weapons for the Argentinian military, I started to feel a little better. So I asked to hold the Thunder 9 and that is when I fell in love. I knew right then that I was going to buy it, and I did. I have shot a lot of pistols since that day, but the Bersa Thunder 9 is still my favorite 9mm. Sometimes you really can get something great for not that much money and the Bersa Thunder 9 was that buy for me.
In this video I talk about this sweet 9mm and the reasons I like it.
Here is a list of the products used in the making of this video.
