    I shot a Bersa Thunder .380 recently, seems like a really nice gun especially at the price point. Personally I'd never carry .380, but if I were of that school of thought the Bersa would definitely be high on the list.

    Bersa is the inexpensive answer to "what this country needs is a good $300.00 9mm Parabellum."

    Bersa

    I carry a T9UC Pro in Duo-tone. It is a little bulky due to the ambidextrous controls and a couple oz heavier than I would like, but it has proven itself reliable and it is a joy to shoot. It took me a couple mags to get used to the trigger reset, but once I did, I love it and judge others by it. Comes in 10 or 13 round mags. I've fed it a steady diet of WWB with no issues.

    My Wife carries a Firestorm 380, just like the Bersa 380 except it doesn't have the combat cut trigger guard and came with the most excellent rubber grips. I haven't found a gun she likes remotely as well. They come with a 7 round mag, but the 9 round mags are available as well.

    The only issue with either has been that the 380 did not feed Priv Partisan ammo. Remington and WWB are no problem, neither is PDX. Have some Speer to try in it next range trip. Both came home from the LGS the same day and I have no regrets on either. I would like to add a T40UC and a 380cc to the collection some day.

    As others have suggested, the finish may not be up to par with the guns that cost more, but that's part of the deal. The other knock I would have is that the current warranty is only good for the original purchaser. In both cases, you are paying much less for a well functioning and reliable firearm.

    I have a Bersa 380 Thunder with the fifteen round magazine. One of the best and smoothest trigger pulls on any handgun I've own in 35 years.
    Very accurate, easy to take down and clean. It's a reliable handgun.

    Wow! For someone who is obsessed with Bersa, reads all the material available about Bersa and is very active in the Bersa "community", this is an awesome thread! 70 posts, and all positive. AWESOME!

    I had one, regret selling it. Its next on my long list of guns to be replaced. It is an awesome handgun. Very reliable, dependable, and accurate. The trigger is gritty for the first few hundred shots, but it evolves into a very smooth, short, light travel.

    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    Either one, but knowing me, I'd get luckier with just the line!

    I had great luck with my Bersa BP9CC. It runs everything I've ever fed it perfectly and shoots well. It's also easy to carry. I did end up selling it, but not because I didn't love it- I sold it my sister. She was relying on an Astra Constable .380 that she can't shoot for $hit! For a .380 it's surprisingly unpleasant to shoot, and as a result my sis can't hit the broad side of a barn with it, but she shoots the BP9CC very well. Since I prefer my Nano by a slight but noticeable margin (and my sis doesn't care much for the Nano) it was a no-brainer to sell her the Bersa. Plus, it did help defray the cost of a new HK USP 9...

    I will probably buy a Bersa again down the road. All the ones I've fired have been good guns.

    I now have about 700 flawless rounds thru my Bersa .380 and 500 flawless rounds thru my Thunder .32 That is after the first 50 rounds where each gun had a couple FTF. Bersa guns are nice. Also you can get awesome custom made wood grips for them at MarschalGrips.com I have a set of zebra wood with oil finish and thumb rest on my .380, looks really nice and is comfortable when shooting. Have to get a set for my Bersa .32 next.

    No problems at all with my Bersa Thunder .45 UC Pro.

    My wife's Thunder .380 however has had feeding issues. Every once in a while, with ball ammo, rounds will get caught up on the feed ramp.
