    My First Carry Gun!!!

    Ok, here it is! Bersa Thunder .380 Duo Tone. I know I've been talking about stainless and revolvers, but this was just the right price and the right time. I couldn't pass it up for under $250 NIB, and it feels really nice in my hand. I plan to take it to the range tomorrow. I feel very positive about the purchase.

    Sorry for the crappy pictures, my camera phone is lacking on the "camera" part. The last shot is with it next to my Ruger Single Six.

    Congrats...on your first purchase.
    Just remember that these little guys are very easily depressed and require 'siblings' to remain happy...

    Actually, it's my second purchase. The first was my Ruger (see the third pic), but that's hardly a carry gun. Great shooter though!.

    A Bersa Thunder 380 is a great carry gun. It is perfect size, weight and ergonomics.

    Enjoy your new Bersa because I have the exact model.

    Good choice. May you never be in a position where you have to use it to defend yourself.

    They are good guns. I bought one for my brother several years ago and thought after shooting it, "I'd like to keep this."My wife has one, my daughter has one, several people I know have them. Other than 380 ammo being higher than a 9MM good gun, good value.

    Careful of 'train tracks'...don't hold this gun too high on the grip if you have large(r) hands....."I said it don't bleed so much at first"....careful and good luck with it!

    Nice! I've been looking at the Bersa 380 too! Now you need to get a set of wood grips from Marschalgrips.com. I think wood grips look really great on the Bersa!

    Enjoy!
