    Yesterday I bought a Bersa Thunder .380 and this morning I shot it. I am impressed it, is one heck of a gun for the money. Light recoil, accurate and fun to shoot.

    I know my mother in law loves her Bersa 380! I haven't shot her pistol...but I have heard nice things about them. Congrats!

    Nice looking piece! What does it weigh? Glad you like your pistol!

    I had the same exact Bersa and just sold it today. I loved the Thunder and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Glad you like it and hope you enjoy.

    When I married my wife she was not fond of guns. Now when I ask her what she wants to do on a weekend she says she wants to go shooting. I bought her a Bersa Thunder and give it a lot of credit for her enthusiasm. It is a great addition to the collection! Fun to shoot for kids, her, and me. Enjoy yours!

    I know two women who use that very gun as their CCW, and one of them lives with me. :D
    I carry it too, when I'm going out to the yard in skivvies - it's the smallest pistol that I can grab-'n'-shoot without risking slide bite.

    I've done a lot of looking at .380 SD ammo, and I think the Win PDX1 bonded 95gr. JHP has got the best ballistics. The Cor-Bon DPX is good too, and it's like a bonded slug in that it's solid copper with no jacket, but IMO the extra weight of the PDX1 wins out. (95 vs. 80gr.)
