About the Handgun:
The Thunder UC Pro is a smaller, compact version of the Thunder Pro with all of the same functional features.
About the Manufacturer:
This Argentina company was founded in the mid 1950s by three Italian immigrants, all who were mechanical engineers. At first they just made parts under contract for another now defunct Argentina arms manufacturer. In 1959 they began making their own pistols and in 1960 they established their trademark name - Bersa. Their pistols today are known worldwide for both their reliability and economy.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
