Researching 9mm handguns for CCW. I really like what I hear about the Bersa Thunder 9 Pro UC. I also really like my wife's S&W 6904.

My question is this: which of these two is smaller? Any chance that one of you own both and can take some side by side pictures for me? I really don't want to try and conceal my 92fs, so size does matter.

If you haven't made a final decision yet, check out the Kahr CW9. I carried one for years as my off duty gun and it was very easy to conceal with just a t-shirt. It's a single stack 9mm that hold 7+1, very accurate shooter and after the recomended 200 rnd "break in period" the thing has not has a single problem.

Of the two you mentioned I don't have much experience. Only know that I didn't like shooting the Bersa Thunder in .380.

+1 for the Kahr but only because of the tons of good things i hear about concealability. no personal experience other than holding it in a shop.

outof the two you mentioned i'd say the bersa probably has better concealability but again.....no personal experience other than in a shop.

The only legal Bersa in California is now the the Thunder 380.

Didn't the Thunder 9 Pro UC just fall off the list? If so, I should be able to find a used one I would think.

Now if you and I ran into each other at the grocery store, would you ask me a question like that? Does anonymity on the Internet give us free license to say such things? Not by my standards, but YMMV; just leave my wife out of our conversations please.
