jake legg: I had to make that choice today.
The Bersa BP9CC won for me.
Has acc rail.
Can be used ambi out of the box.
My only complaints
mag disconnect safety
It is slightly slick feeling
tenderscootch: i like my bp9cc when it doesnt jam
edgybob1: I have a Fobus SWMP holster that I purchased a few months ago for a Pro
Series M&P 9 mm. that has a 4.25 in barrel. The BP9CC fit in it like it was
made for it. It is a level one retention so the fit is what holds it in the
holster but their is a retention adjustment screw on the model SWMP. Great
gun, great holster. Very good video.
fishfuxors: I have a Bersa BP9CC, it's a PEACH!
scrego: 33AnimalMother: BERSA is made in Argentina.
33AnimalMother: Gracias Amigo!
Dennis Gutknecht, Jr: Except it isn't taller with the extended mag, which is what I would use in
the shield as I can't stand 2 finger grips. Also, it is not noticeably
thicker, and is in fact lighter. So no, I don't think they missed the boat,
at least not in this regard. Its actually the light trigger and no safety
that gives me pause more than anything else.
MR45ACP1972: GREAT VIDEO... S&W M&P SHIELD ALL DAY!!!
jh3835: I kno right, bass pro selling mp 499. At a gun shop up the street, there
selling the mp 359.
badass76ta: Just got a bp, tired of waiting for a shield to show up at a store
CandRreviews: It depends if you want a manual safety or not. I really like the shield and
the bp9cc. They have both been great.
CandRreviews: Thanks for the support!
ogosokind: Which one has the better trigger?
Mikell Whitehead: i know this video is about a year old but i was wondering if you could tell
me if it would be possible to shoot +P hollowpoints out of either one of
these, and no im not going to use them for target practice, id just have
those type in the gun when im carrying or at home, cus i really want one of
these but dont wanna have to let go of half my ammo stash cus they cant
J. P.'s FirearmsChannel: cool video, I love the m&p shield
Robert Jennings: Bersa! I went to buy a Shield today, and frankly i wasnt impressed after
holding it and checking it out, the Bersa is better built! and has a great
trigger, the shield felt like a cheap air soft gun..thats the best
comparison i know to give..it just felt cheap! I was disappointed, i ended
up with a Ruger LCR .38!!!
Michael Wyman: You guys by far have one of the best channels on YouTube! I look forward to
all the reviews. Keep up the great work guys!
Jlandification: I found the bersa at Gander Mountian fot $425
33AnimalMother: I know the Bersa is an import, any idea on where it's manufactured? Bought
a Taurus 709 slim this fall just because I couldn't get my hands on the
M&P. Very displeased with my purchase so far. Nice review btw. Nice to see
someone representing the GNW!
Brian Allen: I've been carrying a BP9CC IWB for the last 4 months and love it. Theis
Holsters makes a great IWB holster for this weapon, highly recommended.
FYI, I shot my friends Shield a couple of weeks ago and did not like it,
the Bersa's trigger has me spoiled. Great work on the review, nice to see
the BP get some attention on Youtube.
Jim Bailey: Another great review. Thanks. :)
MrDannees: Do they really say that? I wonder if it is because it is known to go off or
if it is just lawyer recommended.
edgybob1: Oh it is a paddle holster.
tacticalkimchi: I bought the Shield 9mm. Is it OK to carry plus 1 with a fully loaded
magazine? I ask cause i notice I have to slap the fully loaded magazine in
if I have 1 in the chamber.
mraiea101: which shoots better, more accurate?
mraiea101: most important, what is the reliability of the two when firing jhp ammo
from different manufacturers? Problems with failure to feed, failure to
eject, failure to fire (i.e., light strikes). All of the info in video is
fine for basic info, but reliability w/ self defense ammo is critical to
ChrisCorle01: well considering the Shield has a recall on it now ide say the bersa is the
Dennis Gutknecht, Jr: I just held one at the store the other day, and being a man with large
hands I thought the grip was very comfortable. No fingers hanging off at
all. So a petite woman should have no issues, maybe even finding the grip
slightly large. Hope this helps :)
Raymond Jay: Nice review!
jarrettleto: for me the Bersa won out, which I was EXTREMELY surprised about. As a sig
shooter, buying a Bersa seemed laughable. The reason for this? The
triggers. The shield trigger leaves something to be desired, but some
companies make trigger mod kits already for it. The bersa trigger pull is
as light as most 1911's I've shot. My friend who owns a shield had a full
size M&P before it, so he was actually very comfortable shooting the
shield. Both shoot great though!
Brett Carter: Awesome comparison! I'm looking for something a little smaller for everyday
concealed carry and I've heard great things about the Shield. There is
something about that Bersa that I really love, though. I always liked
having something a bit different. Now if I can only find that damn thing
for a fair price!
tomcatwasthere: Bersa makes by far one of the most affordable and reliable 380acp handgun,
the Thunder. I'm pretty sure the BP9 is another great and reliable handgun
that most shooters fail to recognized. I hope they drop the price so I can
TruckingShooter: I haven't handled one of those but I do like the look of the BP9. I would
trust it over that stupid ass Keltec that's for sure. People bash Bersa but
they've been making guns for quite awhile, certainly longer then keltec...
but it seems at least on youtube people like to defend the keltec. I
suspect because of nutn... But yeah how's it compare quality wise to the
KT? I'm sure it's better built but I've never seen one yet.
Danny Di: good video....but i would go with the shield....i think it would be a big
difference in carrying.....
fprimezero: That is just what I heard on other reviews. Supposedly the manual says to
carry it on an empty chamber. 3.5 pounds isn't ridiculously light. I guess
if it were in kydex and nothing could trip the trigger a person could
safely carry it. But that is a little light for my taste. My 1911 has a
light trigger but a manual safety so it works out OK when I carry it.
Veradel97: I am going to be purchasing one of these two and cant decide. It will be a
shooter, and in the future a concealed carry. do you recommend one or the
fprimezero: I have owned several Bersa guns and loved them but I personally would be
uncomfortable carrying a gun that the manufacturer indicates needs to be
carried without a round in the chamber. I find it ironic it is marketed as
a carry gun. I bought the Shield. It was been wonderful and with a 6.5 lb
trigger the safety is just that, an option.
CandRreviews: I have shot +P out of both of these and it can be used as a defensive round.
CandRreviews: To me I think the shield a more accurate handgun. I was able to get good
groups with the bersa but they were not as tight as the shield
jlmcgrot: Nothing against Bersa, but it seems like they missed the boat a little. A
gun that is longer, thicker, and taller than the Shield (which is already
larger in all dimensions than the LC9, cm9, nano). If you're going to go
that large, why not carry an sr9c, m&p9c?
Perry Hughes: I think that bersa is a kick ass looking gun just wish I could hold one in
my hand. Have never seen one here in VA, damn shame!!!!
