PostSubject: Hello to All!   Thu Feb 10, 2011 2:14 am

I created this forum for Bersa handgun owners, shooters, enthusiasts, and non-owners alike. Unlike the "other" Bersa forum and it's illiterate admin, I believe that opinions, discussion, and civil disagreements are what make a forum great! If people disagree, voice an opinion, or correct someone else...there is no need for banning members. Sadly, this is the way for the "other" forum, and I believe it's quite ridiculous. It has some great members with great material, but the "admin" (if you can call it that) who runs the place has no clue how to take criticism or someone else's opinion that rivals his. I have seen many people banned from the place for simply voicing an opinion in a very civil manner. That won't be happening here and I hope you all learn, share, and most of all ENJOY this forum!

That being said...My name is Calvin. I'm 25 years old, live in Atlanta GA and love Bersa handguns. These fine pieces of work put many other brands to the test, and usually come out the victor. I would trust my life to a Bersa. Fine Argentine craftsmanship, great prices, excellent customer service, and most of all RELIABILITY! What more could you want.

I was one of them that was banned from that other "forum" for voicing my opinion that totally was the opposite of the '"illiterate" administrator. He runs that forum like a Czar. He preaches "free speech" but in reality , He just wants to boss everyone around. Of course I was banned AFTER I had already contributed $75 sent to him. At his age, I guess there is no hope in him learning to spell or use correct english. There are a lot of good people on that site. I hope they come over here where their voice can be heard.

Duke welcome aboard! I'm sorry about your experience, especially after donating that much money. That's really shitty. Glad you're here and post up an intro thread here in the Welcome Section. Feel free to post as much as you want, because I need to get a lot of content on here before I go telling everyone about the place.

No problem, Calvin. Will post things I think are interesting to people like us. Congrats on starting up this forum. I will try to get some friends that I have on the "other" forum to come over here.

Calvin, your "statement of purpose" is direct and to the point. - and one with which I agree.
I'm a former member of that other forum and although I was not banned (or suspended) , I felt continuing as a member would betray my principles. So I quit.

Anyway, I'm glad to be here and to find a moderator/owner who can put three words together without confusing the populace.

My purpose in coming over to BersaLive is to share my common interest in Bersa firearms. As far as I'm concerned, the more Bersa forums, the better; there's no such thing as too much information when it comes to guns. So here I am. Very Happy

Thanks Lance, and the best part about this forum is...it's FREE. No donations needed, the more members I get down the road I'll need to appoint some moderators to help keep the place civil. It's going to be a little boring for a while until we get some new members and have some content on. Either way I had no idea that I would wake up to find 3 new members today. I didn't know I would have any one agree with my mission statement at all for that matter. But the Muslim jokes, calling people that like AK-47's- terrorist supporters, commie bastards, etc... I'm not going to be a part of that. And I expect everyone to have their opinion. Some people just aren't going to look at things with an open-mind...and they're going to think they're always right. Kind of like the anti-Glock thing- thousands of soldiers, LEO's, and governmental agencies around the world must be complete idiots for using them...after all they're "junk" right?

Hi Calvin!

Can't have too many Bersa forums to promote the best valued, beat priced handgun in the World Very Happy

The platform looks great. Still hunting and picking myself around a bit. The FAQ section is a great help.

Thanks,

NCFly

Amen!

Lance and I bugged out about 8 months ago when you-know-who was on one of his many power trips and haven't been back since.....

The "ban button" shouldn't be a toy for some overgrown juvenile to play with, and back when I was still there, I don't think that a day went by when the threat of "banning or nuking or some other bullcrap-pseudomym for banning" wasn't directed at someone or other.

Glad to see you guys here, and thank goodness for a sane site and for giving me an email heads-up.

Yeah, great to see you all here too. I grew tired of all the kindergarden antics at the other place, and boycotted it about 6 months ago.

I'm glad Calvin took the initiative to introduce sanity to a bersa forum.

I don't know about the sanity part, but new forum -yes! Hopefully we'll keep growing, I had doubts that anyone would even sign up. But 13 members in just 3 days is good stuff!

I'd wager that there's more than a few members over there fed up with all the crap too.

Very glad to hear on your status. I'm still grinding at my job. My pooch, Mr. Lucky, passed last August. It took me awhile to adjust to his death. In late October I adopted a new dog, a beagle/golden retriever mix (A Beago, lol). His name is Orvis, of course Very Happy

Might have a new job in another area. Got a email today about it from their corporate HQ and a actual name & phone number. Well see.

Orvis with my Pro 45 UC:
