Feel like saying "I'm back!! ". Was a member on the older site and had a Bersa Thunder 380. Also had a UBG holster at the time. I sold that set up and bought a PF9 and shortly afterward sold that too. Wanted to get back into cc so I started looking at new guns to buy. I went thru the normal what caliber do I want , and settled back to 380. One thing I was uncomfortable with on my full size was the tang cut into my belly (large and extra wide) when it was iwb. The cc model looks to be much smaller in that area.
I always enjoyed the info on the other site and look forward to that again

Welcome to Bersa Chat TTNC. The CC is easy to conceal & also easy to forget you got it with you, EXCEPT when wearing IWB. :smile: I don't see how you guys do it. It's all I can do just to get ME in there. :redface:

Hey Mitchr, I found out that if they have a pair that's, (a size up like, say, oh just off the top of my head, and not respective of anyone's waist size, referring to no-one's current girth, a hypothetical) a size 40 instead of 38, WOW, IT FITS. Since I never go anywhere without my Amigo, it just became part of this supposed, hypothetical waist size..........................hehehe

Sure do remember that uniform. Wore mine way back in the mid sixties. Was a Hollywood Marine and never stationed on the east coast for anything. Did all my training at Pendleton then went Wespac. Did a tour in Vietnam then the better part of the next year at Great Lakes in the hospital recuperating from three am rounds to the left chest and shoulder.
Semper Fi there brother.

They paid us to duck in Army. It was cheaper than hospital . But then we weren't MARINES!!

Most of US had a high school diploma or better and understood. Get Down, didn't mean to stand and start dancing. :tongue: But even ducking I still got my VC pop up target badge . Yes AK rounds do hurt.

Michael, I really cannot figure out how they were able to hit me. I swear there was nothing sticking jot from my helmet other than fingers and toes. Though I used to say "yes, someone yelled duck! And I thought they said @#*!, so I stood up and said WHERE?" You know, Marines were a rare breed.

Already have found several familiar ones like you, Michael, Mason and NC Flyfisher. Fun being back and will be more fun when my 380cc comes in.

So sorry for your loss!! These kids today are subjected to too many tours in harms way. While in the AF did you ever get to Grissom AFB? I lived about a mile from there for the last 14 years I was in Indiana. Thanks for your service, we were all part of the big machine.
