    Bersa Thunder .380 first range trip

    I finally got to the range this morning to try this little bargain pistol out. I was very satisfied too. Accurate for its intended distance. I am having to get used to the trigger since I have been shooting my DAO pistol. Did some sight adjustments and it was shooting good. 100 rounds and no issues at all. I love this little gun. Perfect fit and feel for me and conceals well.

    10 yards, 5 rounds


    This is my usual defense drill. While backing up from an arms reach, draw and fire 2 from the hip at center mass. Raise to eye level and fire 3 to center mass. Pause to check if the attack has stopped. If not fire 2 to the head.

    Sweet.
    I've got that exact same pistol and very much like the CC aspect of its size. Mine did jam, but as I said in another thread, I think it was the range ammo. What are you shooting through yours?


    Nice grouping btw, and I like the drill you go through.

    Glad it worked out for you. Always makes you feel good when a new gun functions like it should. nice shooting too. Unfortunately for me, the public range I use doesn't allow drawing or rapid fire (althought I squeeze off a couple of quick ones if a lot of firing is going on!).

    Bersa makes good pistols. The Thunder .380 is a smooth shooting and accurate gun. I liked my buddy's a lot and I ended up buying the Thunder 9 UC (the 9mm version of the same gun). I've been extremely pleased with it. 100% reliable so far with multiple brands and types of ammo. I like being able to carry it chambered and de-cocked with the safety off. The hammer won't contact the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled all the way back. You've chosen a great gun!!! I'm sure you will enjoy it.
