    Since a friend of mine introduced me to Bersa handguns in 2009, I've loved them since. I have bought and sold several different kinds, including a Bersa Thunder Plus (15+1) .380. I deeply regret getting rid of that one. However, I've been carrying Bersa's BP9cc for over a year now and it has been impressive!!! Its accurate, comfortable, reliable, and 9mm! You can trust Bersa. They're cheap, yes, but not cheaply made.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    operative word being AFFORDABLE, not cheap.. just so we're all clear. I'm sure its a combination of reduced mark up, and more affordable materials in Argentina as compared to other competing manufacturers such as Glock, S&W, Springfield, etc.

    Bersa Pistols

    I have the BP9CC and LOVE love it. It's an awesome gun and I have not had one problem with it. Matter of fact it brings a smile to my face every time I shoot it. It is my EDC and I don't see that changing anytime soon. It is very well made to boot. Just to note also that I work a couple days a week at my friends LGS and he can't keep them in stock.

    Price wise I was told by our sales rep that it was the exchange rate that puts them in the price range they are. With the quality they are putting out I will expect that to change shortly. Good stuff Bersa.

    I have to add my two cents, as I was a skeptic and now a very happy owner. I purchased a Bersa 380 cc. I've put about 200 rounds with five different ammo brands. Tula produced multiple FTL in every magazine. All other ammo fed through without one FTL, FTF, or FTE. Whether I did rapid fire or slow and deliberate the Bersa did a terrific job of feeding, firing, and ejecting. Could not be more pleased.

    yeah they really are a hidden gem, probably the best gun value for the money while still staying in the realm of quality firearms. Only other way to get such a reliable quality firearm is to buy an excellent condition used gun, such as a Glock, M&P, XD, etc... police turn ins and what have you.. and hope for one that was taken care of.

    My Bersa 380 ammo jamming

    I am having a problem with the ammo jamming in my Bersa 380 thunder! What can I do to fix it? It won't feed right and happens on about the 4 round. Can anyone help me on what I need to do

    Try a different magazine or spend the $4 on a new magazine spring and see if that helps.

    I've been carrying Bersa's new BP9cc for about a year now. Its very, very accurate for a small gun, and quite dependable. The single stack frame is polymer, so makes it comfortable for me. But..... damn thing kicks like a mule.

    The wife's EDC is a regular Bersa Thunder .380. Its a very, very good gun all around, at any price.
    Thirty years ago my cousin had Bersa's and often spoke highly of them. Then he got married and she made him sell all of them. Me? I would have kept the guns and lost the wife.

    People used to ask me if I had anything "cheaper." My standard response was "we don't make anything cheap, it's just that some costs less than others."

    My primary carry is a Bersa Thunder Pro UC 9. As you can tell by my chat handle, I am a big fan. Everything that everyone else has said is dead-on: they have super reliability, are very accurate, are well-made, and are affordable. I'll add to that list of benefits that the take down on them is ridiculously easy, all you have to do (after ensuring no magazine is in the gun and the chamber is empty) is pull the slide back, flip a lever forward, and pull the slide forward off the gun. There are no pins to remove or latches in hard-to-reach places, and you don't have to pull the trigger. Some things to think about before buying a Thunder Pro UC:

    1. If you get the nickel slide you SHOULD NOT clean the gun with Hoppe's. Hoppe's specifically warns of this on a disclaimer on all of their cleaning solutions. I use Ballistol.
    2. The Thunder Pro UC is DA/SA. The first pull is a little heavy, which is not for everyone. Having said that I like the DA first pull, as I feel it gives me added protection against an ND and I have gotten very accurate on that first pull with practice.
    3. The gun is a little heavy for its surface area, but not prohibitively so. This makes carrying it just a little more taxing, however I feel like the reduced felt recoil that comes along with the added weight is well worth it.
    4. The stock sights are combat sights, meaning that you are to cover the target with the front sight before shooting. This can be a little awkward for some shooters and many shoot a little low with the Thunder Pro at first.
    5. You should consider getting a grip sleeve if you are planning to carry IWB, as the grip serrations are aggressive and I could see skin discomfort occurring without a grip sleeve. Hogue and Pachmayr make good grip sleeves, although I personally use one from TUFF1 Gun Grip Covers - The Worlds Best Universal Gun Grips

    Altogether I think my Bersa Thunder Pro UC is about as good as it gets for carrying a double-stack pistol, I have no plans to carry another double stack any time soon.

    Not long after I posted this thread I bought a Bersa Thunder 380 CC and put some Marshall wooden grips on it. That thing is dead nuts accurate from 10 yards as fast as I can pull the trigger. Scary accurate for a small gun. It's been flawless. A great little carry gun that shoots like a dream. It's the nickel finish and I got it used for a great price before the crap hit and prices skyrocketed. I carry FMJs in it. At 8+1 and an extra mag, it's quite handy.

    I have two Bersa Thunder 22 and think they're great. A bit finicky on ammo (CCI Mini-Mag and Remington Golden Bullet) but reliable, accurate and inexpensive. With the new year I'm seriously considering the BT380 - finances permitting.

    The BP9CC is a superb little gun! My sister talked me out of mine but it was a pleasure to carry and shot well for me, and it was as reliable as could be.
