    Need some pricing advice

    I am looking at a Bersa Thunder .380 for $295. Not sure if it is new or used (I think used but do not know). What think the group about the price?

    Does it come with any accessories? Also, someone once told me before to check gunbroker.com to get an idea of prices, and it's great advice.

    I was only looking so really do not know if it has more than the normal goodies (norm being: gun and mag).

    Gunbroker.com has them going for about $330-$380 right now so it sound like a good deal. Tubby sold one on here a little while ago with 3 mags and 2 holsters for $275. I really wish I had jumped on that deal.

    It's a fair price... not a spectacular bargain, but fair.

    The Thunder .380 is a good solid little pocket gun, though I find them a bit heavy.
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    New it's a good deal, used it is a ok deal, what it comes with could change things considerably. I suggest more info be gained before asking if it is a good price.

    Not so long ago they were available out the door for $219 ... those days have gone.

    $295 for used seems high to me ... I'd be thinking currently of perhaps $200 for like new.

    Prices of guns are going up.

    They always do when the next one in office may be a Democrat.

    Democrats are great for the gun buisness.

    If I remember correctly at Sportsmans we sell the thunder dual tone for 229.99 and the nickel plated model for 299.99.
