    Bersa Thunder 380 holster question

    I am looking for a good(not expensive) holster for my Bersa Thunder 380. This is my first carry gun. I am disabled and use a cane to walk. I am right handed and that is also the hand I use with the cane. I have a pancake holster for a right hand but it is a little difficult to draw.
    I am thinking of a cross draw or something for the small of the back.
    Any suggestions?
    Since I am disabled, I am on a fixed income. I cannot afford a "pricey" holster, but I also don't want to waste money on a "cheap" holster. I am just looking for a good, low cost holster, that fits my situation.
    thanks for the help.

    Fobus makes a paddle roto-holster that may fit your criteria.

    Fobus Holster: WALTHER PP/PPK/PPKS - ROTO-HOLSTERô PADDLE

    It's for the Walther and should git the Bersa, but you may want to contact them to verify this.

    I have a Bersa 380 Thunder that I carry in a Comp-Tac Ghurka holster.

    I just purchased the Don Hume JIT Slide Belt Holster for $23.00. I ordered it from Gun Holsters and Shooting Accessories at Discounted Prices. I don't have it yet, but I have read a few reviews and people to seem to like the quality of the leather.

    My local gun shop also recommends the FOBUS PADDLE HOLSTER. They usually run around the same price. Good luck!

    A good friend of mine just purchased a crossbreed, not sure if it was a super-tuck or mini-tuck, for a kel-tec 380 and he is very pleased with it. He has been carrying with it for about two months. I don't know if they have one for the Bersa 380 but if not they might make one for you. I'm not sure how you define "pricey" but I believe it cost around $65.00.

    Search out Fist holsters through the 'Related Links' above.
    Find Fists IWB/SOB #41...very comfortable, reasonable $, quality leather, and quick delivery.
    I have 6 of them.

    If you happen to decide that you would like to try IWB then the new Bersa holster from Tennessee Holster is now available on their website.



    I got the first one of these they sold and really like it. It is a heavy leather and the cant is adjustable to fit how you want to carry it. Mine found the sweet spot on my waist and I put some locktite on the paddle screw and it now stays right where it needs to be and rides great. I bet the cant angle on mine is at least 20% forward but it just disappears under a t-shirt and stays there all day. You could even move the paddle around and carry it cross draw if that is what you wanted to do.

    I just ordered a "Bare Asset" from High Noon yesterday. I have never needed a tuckable holster, so I passed up the split decision.

    These are stocked, so mine will be delivered tomorrow!:)
    I think it was about $37 shipped.

    Maybe a shoulder rig might work for you. Similar motion as a cross draw but may be easier to get to than a SOB holster.

    I have a Smart Carry holster for my Taurua 24/7 Pro and I can also use this same holster for the Bersa Thunder .380. Actually a little lighter pistol and conceals remarkably well, even with just a T shirt and shorts.

    Slight of hand

    With a shoulder holster, you can pass your cane to your left hand, and while your hand is on that side of your body, slide hand under concealment garment, draw and fire. Would also fit a cross draw, this maneuver.

    The passing of the cane is a non threating movement, till the right hand emerges with the .380 firmly held, a lot of trouble goes away when a pistol instantly grows on the end of your arm.
