Well, Its 2011. Any chance the Bersa BP-9 is going to be available this year?

I emailed bersa to hear it from the horses mouth. They said they are still waiting for ATF approval. I read in December, albeit from the internet, that the importer, Eagle Imports, said the gun was approved by ATF and was now awaiting the green light from officials in Argentina. :( Obviously that is conflicting information. I hope they get it together soon because people just might loose interest. It looks like a great every day cc pistol.

Hadn't heard anything about this until I saw this post and looked up some info. It's a prime market segment and the pistol looks good. A really small polymer 9mm single stack is definately on my "will buy" list. I have to say though, that with the Kahr CW9 already at $370, Bersa is going to have a tough sell for me personally. Anything over $300 and I thin I'll personally end up going with the Kahr for this segment.

That said, their small .380's are already priced at $300 or slightly over, and you usually see a reduction in price with a move to polymer, so $300 or under might not be that unrealistic. Kel-tec is already competing at those price levels with more expensive US-based labor.

yeah its a nice sized gun, Bersa has a good rep. This one is right in the wheelhouse of dimensions i'd like to use for an everyday carry. slim, single stack. somewhere between a typical fat compact and a pocket.
