YouTube personality, Graham Baates, gives us his first impressions on shooting the Bersa BP9CC Pistol.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- A 9mm handgun less than an inch wide with 8+1 capacity.
This has become nearly the norm for those looking for an easily concealed handgun for carry in hot weather or when utmost discretion is required.
Offering often under-appreciated features such as a visible and tactile loaded chamber indicator and ambidextrous magazine release the Bersa BP Concealed Carry Series fills even large hands comfortably and yet maintains a very slim concealed weapon profile.
Much like the tango dance of Bersa’s native Argentina the BP9CC is a blend of both simple movements and advanced techniques that isn’t too intimidating for the beginner yet offers a lot for the more experienced.
The Bersa BP9CC Pistol features nearly break down evenly:
All features combined it makes for a handgun offering advanced options usually only found in much more expensive models. The Bersa BP9CC Pistol welcomes the new shooter and can grow with the user’s skills through years of reliable operation and without leaving the owner wanting of aftermarket improvements.
Perhaps part of why we don’t hear much about the Bersa BP9CC is that it hasn’t demanded the aftermarket attention that others in the single-stack 9mm lineup have. Once you have the handgun all you need is a holster.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of the handgun is the trigger. Initial pull is a bit long and squishy as is good for a defensive gun, and yet the reset is incredibly short and crisp permitting follow-up shots nearly instantaneously.
Plenty of trigger time to know the first shot needs to be taken, and immediate follow-ups if another shot is needed.
All in all the Bersa BP9CC is an impressive blend of what both new shooters and experienced seek in a slim defensive handgun. See Erika and Graham give their impressions after shooting in the video above. Be sure to watch their reset shots at the end.
