    My wife loves hers. Over 1,000 rounds thru it w/o a hiccup. Goes bang every time. Yes, I'd buy it again.

    I purchased my first Bersa .380 in 1993, the Model 83 which was the predecessor to the Thunder Series. Along the way picked up a Duotone and Nickel Thunder 380.
    Never had a issue with any of them. I would definitely recommend the Thunder 380 to anyone looking to carry a pistol in that caliber.

    I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

    I have a couple buddies with them and I've shot them a lot. Fantastic guns, smooth shooters, accurate, and neither have ever had an issue. I'm on the lookout for a steal on a Thunder CC model myself now. I have a Bersa Thunder 9uc and it is an awesome firearm. Bersas are very well made. A lot of gun for the money.

    Bersa's are one of the best deals out there when it comes to pistols.

    The .380 Thunder is solid, accurate, and reliable. Is it perfect, no. But, I think I bought mine new for $219 a couple years back, and I can't think of another pistol in that price range that comes close to being as good.

    I don't own the .380 but I have a Bersa Thunder 9 UC Pro and I have never had a failure of any kind with it. I would buy more Bersa guns.

    I had one, and sold it for something I thought I wanted more. I wish I'd never done that...

    I still have a Bersa though, and probably always will have at least one. I want a Thunder 9 or 40 HC next.

    Got one for my wife. She hasn't shot it yet, but I have. Great gun. 300-400 rounds through it with no issues. Very accurate. Nice trigger. Recoil is not a problem at all. I have an M&P 9c, but wouldn't have any concern putting this one in my pocket.

    Never had any trouble out of the Thunder 380. Regretted selling the first one I owned, and bought another.
