    New guy from Florida

    New guy from SE Florida (Boca Raton). Retired teacher of 43 years and glad to be done with it.
    Have been shooting informally and formally since 1982. Have shot in local, state and NRA
    sectional matches and enjoy it thoroughly.
    Have owned Bersa's in the past, both the Thunder and the 15 rounder. Sorry I have sold them
    both. Waiting for my Thunder 22 to arrive next Monday (11/13/17). Even though we all know
    what they look like, I will post pics when it arrives and give a range report.
    Hard working American...does not get any better than that.

    Welcome to the club mustacio.....
    I never shot a Thunder 22, but have a couple of the 15 round Plus models and 2 of the CC's, a 9mm pro, and a standard T380....they are fun guns no doubt.

    Welcome from Winter Park.
    You are lucky to still have your sanity after a career in education.

    Use full power ammo in that .22 to cycle the action.

    Howdy, mustacio! Welcome to Bersa Chat. I just got back from a brief sojourn in the FL panhandle where they could have used someone with your experience. The Road Work Ahead signs need to be corrected to read, Road Narrows But There's No One Working.

    Hah!.....I say something similar...and a few other choice words anytime I travel near P'cola in FL.... or just about anywhere in Louisiana. Heck, FL has been working on I-10 for near 30 years! No joke!

    thank you all for the welcome...Note to R.C. you only assume I am sane. I left because i started feeling less effective and the younger teachers were taking over. Yep, time to leave.

    Welcome mustachio. It is sad to see someone with pro gun ideals leave the teaching world where it does seem it is being taken over by those that impose their ideals upon the upcoming generations. Not just with firearms but with all the values many of us grew up with are now being trampled on.

    Funny you should mention that...I had been told on many occasions not to espouse the validity of the 2nd amendment. I have even been told not to talk to a student, outside of the classroom about political issues. Yep, time to leave and none to soon.

    That would be fine if it didn't apply only to conservative politics. From what I've heard, they don't have a problem with spreading their liberal BS.

    Wow, I knew it was bad but I had no idea it was so extreme that they direct the appropriate curriculum and conduct for the teachers that don't think like the new majority.
