    Wow, not one mention of the Bersa 380 cc. They are consistently rated highest quality, extremely accurate, and virtually fail proof. Also, what’s with all the laser sighting on these things. Simply an add on to sell it to the street thugs to make it more like their video games. In reality, a laser sight is more harmful than useful in a defensive situation. 1. Most defensive gun fights happen fast and close range, and you need to fire instinctively, not do dead aims. 2. Even remembering you have a laser sight and then how to activate it waste precious time you likely do not have. 3. Having a laser sight means you will use and rely on it in practice, making you less accurate shooting instinctively. 4. In a real situation, if u do have the time to turn it on and try to use it, you will not likely be very calm about it. If you are shaking at all, that laser dot will be dancing all over the target. One quarter inch if shake at your short barrel will amplify to over a foot on your target 10feet away.

      Agree about the Bersa but not about the laser. a,. For fast, close range gun fights the laser won’t make a difference. You can practice for just that situation by turning it off. b. But other situations you don’t mention (getting knocked to the ground, for ex., requiring you to fire at a super weird angle, maybe while being kicked) are excellent laser applications. c. There are already laser designs that activate automatically and holsters that will activate it when you pull the gun, so fiddling with on switches isn’t (or shouldn’t be) a problem, and d. For short-barreled guns, lasers can add accuracy like nobody’s business. Really excellent with a 2″ belly gun if you do have to shoot say 15′ when your adrenaline is going nuts.
