    wife and thundr 380

    I just bought my wife a Bersa 380. She has a physical problem with her wrists and hands. She can handle a P95 but that pushes her limit. How will the Bersa compare. (won't get to shoot it till next week.)

    My wife and I both have one. Her gun was a little hard getting the safety to move. I had to take it apart and smooth it out for her. Now it is perfect. She also has some problems taking it apart since you have to pull the slide all the way back to remove it. The recoil spring can be stiff.

    As far as shooting it she has no problems.

    They are great little pistols. I bet she will be able to handle it quite well.

    I HAD one until my wife tried it. Now I no longer have a thunder, she does.

    Very nice gun, my wife loves the one we have. They are put together with tight tolerences i.e. racking the slide and putting safety on and off. If racking the slide is a problem try fully cocking the hammer before racking. This will take some of the resistance off. The gun will loosen up after a couple hundred rounds.
