    Good guns for a good price. My mom loves her Thunder .380

    I would recommend them. My dad bought one as a backup pistol and I shot it at the range it has a nice feel and shoots straight. Its good quality production also. I was very tempted to trade in my Keltec P3at for one but i like the smaller size of the P3at soooo ill just have to save up some more and buy one one day.

    Good guns for a good price. Here in Costa Rica they are widely used due to their low price and people have only but good things to say. I have tried a Bersa Thunder .380 and it is fantastic!

    I've got one of the Two-tone ones with a blue slide and stainless/alloy frame, 3 1/2" barrel it's a single stack that holds 7 + 1 Fixed sights. Nice gun for the price Gun Blast has a good write up on it,http://www.gunblast.com/Bersa_Thunder380.htm

    Yes they are good guns. FYI ,they also have a CC model you may like.

    I LOVED my Thunder .380 and am REALLY sad that I sold it. It was my first handgun and a gift from my husband the night before our wedding and we sold it to a friend who was hard up on money. He turned around and sold it almost immediately and had we known he was planning on selling it we would have bought it back in a heartbeat. That had a lot of sentimental value and not a darned thing wrong with it.

    A good little shooter.

    Never had any trouble out of my Thunder .380. You just have to get used to the backwards safety, or carry it decocked with the safety off.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I have a Bersa Thunder DLX (9 round mag). I love it. It has never given me any problems. Eats everything I feed it. Shoots where I point it. I would never sell it. It is my summer, shorts and tshirt carry weapon.

    I regret selling my Bersa. It was a great piece. Never had one problem with it. I was just too impatient about waiting for 380 rounds to show up again.

    The only thing I don't like is the mag safety. Other than that they are excellent firearms.

    I have 3 and they have been reliable.

    My wife has a Bersa Thunder 380 she carries and 9mm Ultra Carry she likes shooting.
    I have a Tunder 40 Ultra Carry Pro with the new rail.

    I sell a lot of holsters for Bersas.

    I actually think the Bersa pistols are of good design and engineering. I've had a few in my hands before. Can't give an honest opinion. I choose mine, and you choose yours. It's what you can work with, what fits you, and what you can hit with (and find more magazines for). CC means being able and ready to defend yourself no matter what you choose to defend that principle. Plain and simple. You and your carry should become one. Bersa isn't on the blacklist so far as I know. For whatever it's worth. Seems to peak your interest. I'd say go for it.
