Well I finally made it to the range. I bought the gun (Bersa Thunder .380) a week and a half ago and this past Friday I made it out to the range. Man I like the way this gun shoots. The trigger is a little bit of a long pull, but I'm sure I will get used to that.

I don't know how to post pics so here is the break down of my shots. Plus I'm new to this and don't have the target in front of me (just a pic and I can't read the writing), so I will probably list the target wrong, but I will give it a shot. [no pun intended]. :smile:

Using a silhouette target @ 15 yards (those on the line I counted in the outer circle)

BULLS EYE: 9 (circle with the X [2 in the very center circle with the X] and next circle - no #)
Circle (area) #9: 12
Circle (area) #8: 7
Circle (area) #7: 3
Outside circles (area): 1

Planned Headshots:
6 face hits (2 between the eyes, 1 in each eye, 1 center forehead, 1 lft. cheek, 1 between rt. eye and ear)
2 neck shots
3 misses (all with my Brothers 9mm - had a harder pull and I was pulling to the right as I fired. 4th shot hit - one of the ones mentioned above).

Sounds like it's shoots pretty good. Get ya the Hornady Critical Defense rounds for that puppy. IMO one of, if not the best for the .380 caliber.:hand10:

Friend of mine just bought a Firestorm/Bersa 380 this week.
Don't want to hijack this thread but........what's the difference between Bersa and Firestorm?
Just curious..............:confused:

I believe Bersa is imported whole, while Firestorm is assembled here of Bersa parts. Same weapon, though, if I remember correctly (corrections welcome if my prodigeous... pro... prodijeous... impressive intellect was busy elsewhere).

I've owned two Bersa .380 myself and like them a lot.
In fact it was the positive experience I had with them that made
me pick up a new Bersa UC9 Pro last week.

Sounds like the way my Bersa shoots!! However I like the P232 much better, but a lot more $$$ For a good SD round check out the Buffalo Bore Gold Dots, very impressive and the only 380acp I carry.

I have carried a Bersa 380 on and off for the last two years and have shot around 1,000 rounds through it. It can be a little picky about the ammo but have settled in on Cor Bon DPX for SD round and S & B and Federal for practice rounds. These have all proven to be relaible.

I've had my Bersa DLX .380 for a couple of years....put a lot of rounds down range with it....never had a problem. In fact, it is the only gun I own that has never had a single problem. Even my trusty Mil-Spec has had ONE FTF in the 1000s of rounds I've put through it. But the Bersa hasn't even had that.
