I finally got to the indoor range today with my new-to-me Bersa Thunder 380. I was getting sick of slogging through snow to the backyard and freezing my fingers off. My friend and I put about 150 rounds through it ... Federal, White Box, Remington, and Tula Brass Maxx. One round of White Box flat nose failed to fully load but did with a light push on the slide. Everything else fed like butter. For a relatively small and inexpensive gun, this thing shoots better than anything I've ever tried. I still have one on order with my LGS and when it comes in I'll have two. This remarkable little gun has very manageable recoil, a full hand grip, great sight picture, and is amazingly accurate. The target below is a 2-1/2 inch square ... 14 shots at 25 feet, Weaver stance. This is a keeper.

From the look of your target that was great shooting. I guess shooting a gun when your fingers are not frozen is a very good idea... Congrats..

I have an acquaintance that is a gunsmith who lives in Wisconsin. He told me that years ago he used to write some things for different gun magazines. He told me he had once gotten the opportunity to do a test of a Bersa Thunder .380 pistol. He said he was very impressed with the pistol. For a less expensive gun, he said the Bersa was a good deal. Seemed reliable, shot well, was easy to maintain and he liked the test gun a lot. That made me feel good about my purchase.

I am not a gunsmith but I have been firing Bersa for years and the only real problems I had was a bad non Bersa magazine. My Bersa 22, BT 32, BT 380 and my Bersa 380CC have been great. At the range I usually fire the BT 380 and BT22LR and put a lot of rounds thru them. Not as many now due the non available of ammo these day. The BT32 and BT380CC I use only once in a while to make sure they are in working order.

That's also good to hear. I gotta be honest -- using a 380 for CC makes me a little nervous. And being new to Bersa, I have to get more comfortable. I usually CC 9mm or 45 Glocks (got the 45 on right now getting ready to go somewhere...) or ankle carry a 38/357 Taurus 5 shot revolver. The 380 is gonna take a bit of time.

I understand since before I felt good enough about carrying an Auto my primary gun was a Ruger SP101 with 357 JHP . However I still get a real kick out firing my Ruger at the range and it is one of my Home Protection guns at home. My wife has the Bersa's for home protection, that is until she gets her CHL.

:rolleyes:
