Underneath the tacky paint, it's still a Bersa so there's still a semblance of beauty left.

It looks something like the decorative schemes you see on cars in India and Pakistan on Top Gear.

That poor Bersa! Shoot if that paint job was on a hi-point I think it might do it some good and actually cover up some of the ugly.

This is the worst looking gun I've ever seen

Art?

Or humor...

well if you do happen to miss your target you'd probably still be safe as the BG would probably be laughing so hard he would forget his original intentions.

I will admit, while the gun is hideous, the more I look at the painted rounds, the more they make me laugh haha.

The orange one kinda has a +P looking face

Be on the lookout. I think 3 cute rounds are missing. That would add insult to injury if the criminal was in the hospital after getting shot with that thing. Doc pulls out the rounds with their smiley or O faces. Of course, they would most likely not be recognizable, but if they were, hahah.

Excuse me for this is the semi-auro forum, but on a scale of 1-10 that pistol is 200 behind the Chiappa Rhino on the ugliness meter. 300 behind it on the ridiculous looking scale!

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder . . . " . . . I guess?

Look at it this way . . . if you were carrying this particular painted beauty for a SD weapon . . . and you got in to a situation where you had to draw it . . . perhaps the perp would be laughing so hard that you could easily turn and get away without having to fire a shot . . . or maybe not?

At least it would be easy to describe in a stolen gun report -- if anyone would steal it.

Before I clicked on the link I thought it probably doesn't look that bad. Boy was I wrong, Huggy Bear wouldn't be seen with that gun. Bill Cosby's sweaters are easier on the eyes than that thing.

I liked the "Pez bad guy dispenser" comment.

Well done!

Q would shoot himself before he issued that piece.

I mean, just look at the rounds! Clearly too large. Only an American would want a cannon like that, since the .32 "hits like a brick through a plate glass window"...
