Great shots of the BT9HC
Great shots of the BT9HC
A couple of more shots....
Those are awesome pictures, Bersa. Thank you for sharing.
I have an older model Thunder 9 High Capacity (pre-Pro) and it is the most accurate pistol that I own. I have let beginners shoot it, and you would never know they have little or no pistol experience. The T9HCs are incredible pistols and I would recommend them to anyone shopping for a full size 9MM pistol.
Great shoots and adventure, thank you for posting this picture, it was so nice and it was so exciting to try this. I hope, I had a chance to try this.

Hi, I'm new here and I just purchased a (pre-pro) Thunder 9 HC a few hours ago. Thanks for the reassurance. I have long thought of this pistol to replace my Browning HP which, is going to be just kept in my collection. It has served me well and had so much fun with it. Having missed out on the Walther P88, the BT9 has appealed so much to me since it has the silouette of the P88 and the similarity to the much revered BHP. Having acquired a thunder 380 for ccw last year, I was impressed for Bersa's build quality, reliability and affordability. That got me curious and led me to read and know as much as I can about the Bersa lineup. I was actually going for the S&W .40 Bersa Thunder HC but it seems that they all had the rails which I didn't like as I never used lights and lasers for ccw. I really like the carry cuts and slimmer dimensions of non-railed pistols like the BHP and P88 and settled for the 9mm Thunder (pre-pro) iteration. I am confident that I will really enjoy this pistol and I am excited to receive it as soon as the papers are done and my unit delivered. More to come.
Incidentally, did Bersa come out with a pre-pro version of the S&W 40 Thunder?

Clean it real real good Get all the shipping gunk off and inside mags clean also. (make sure mag springs go back in correct way) shoot ball for a 100 or so rounds then start with you choice of HP Many of us carry the Corbon DPX in out 380 ,9mm and 45 .

I'm just excited as I'm beginning to train as novice in IDPA events and I hope the T9 will be good for it. Will keep you posted for more valuable advise.
I have no doubt that it is a superb pistol and I'm really excited to get mine in a week or so.
I noticed when i was comparing the pre-pro BT9 and the BT.40 Pro, the BT9's sights were quite similar or the same as the Glocks whilst the Pro had sights more similar if not the same as the SigSauer sights. What do you have on your pre-pro BT9 if I may ask?
After breaking it in for 300 rounds, my 380 continued to perform flawlessly. I'm very confident that it will be so for the next thousand rounds. I also took the chance to bring it to my friend for a custom finish. Well, we all know that Bersa is not really known for impeccable finishing so I reckon i'd have somebody who will. I hope you like it.
Finally got my dream Bersa 9mm pistol. I've had it for a month now and have enjoyed breaking it in with 300 rounds of 9mm FMJ and true enough, it is a performer with all my expectations fulfilled. Though it took me quite a while to get familiar with the center pivoted trigger, I must say that it is true that it is a remarkably accurate pistol. Getting groups of 2.5 to 3.5 in 10m and 15m respectively. More post break-in range reports to follow.
Again, like my BT380, I had it brought over to my gunsmith buddy to refinish the slide in "Black Chrome" and the barrel in hard chrome after breaking it in. I hope you like it.
Nice! I like that finish he did! Shiney guns are pretty, but you just can't beat black!
The pistols look great, Murdoch. Congratulations on the acquisition of the 9HC. From reading your post, it seems that yours is as good of a shooter as mine. I do hope you enjoy it and thank you for sharing the photos.
Among other things, what i find so great about this pistol is its simplicity of dismantling. It takes me just a few minutes to clean it.
hi guys i'm new here i just bought my new Bersa Thunder Pro 9mm yesterday and i'm still waiting for my papers so that i can shoot it on the firing range, but i think that i will never hav a problem with this from your recent post here this is my first pistol
