This is a discussion on Are Bersa firearms any good? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by greyeyezz +1 I would say 20 years ago they were more unheard of than considered junk. My 383A is well made and ...
As to Bersa customer service: My son has a Bersa Thunder .380. It's his CCW. It's accurate and reliable. He loves it so much he bought a used Bersa .45. It had a cracked frame, so he contacted Bersa. Because the gun is still within warranty period, they are sending him a new gun.
I think they are a little rough around the edges generally but a lot of solid handgun value for the money. Bersa's are not as well finished as higher end handguns but are very well made mechanically.
When I leave the home port:
S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP
I carry a Bersa Thunder .380 IWB loaded with Corbon Pwrballs and trust it completely.
I am thinking of getting a Bersa 9mm also.
Does anyone have any experience with the Bersa BP 9CC? If so let us know about it.
I like the Thunder Pro UC 9mm but also like the BP 9CC and need to find out more.
The UC9 is a big thick heavy piece. That said, mine is my nightstand gun (13+1 and a nice rail light). The trigger ROCKS. It is more accurate than I am and it has been 110% reliable. For a carry piece there are probably better options, but this is an ideal bedside gun IMO.
Had a Firestorm mini .45(same as the Bersa .45) gun felt really nice had a few FTE so i traded it off. Shot really nice except for the malfunctions.

Bersa is like that really awesome chick who wasn't the hottest in school, but would make a great wife. Not the prettiest, bit not ugly either, and had a great personality.
I know not what this "overkill" means.

I've owned a Thunder 380 CC and currently own a Thunder 380 Deluxe and a Firestorm 22lr. All have been reliable and accurate.
I have purchased a Bersa Thunder .32 to go along with my .380 and both are really nice. Accurate, dependable, and I can use the same holster for both. Maybe next a 9mm?
interesting thread...I have contemplated both a thunder 380 combat and the thunder UC pro in 9mm for sometime. I may just have to pull the trigger one of these days then.
I own, and sometimes carry, a Bersa Thunder 9UC and it has been 100% reliable for 7 years. I lost exact count, but if I had to guess, it has gone through no less than 4000 rounds. I would not hesitate to buy another one in the future. Bersa has been so good, to so many, that even some bonafide gun snobs have been converted.
