Took my new "budget priced" Firestorm .380 for first firing & initial break in. A complete joy and I couldn't be more pleased. Used Fiocchi 95 gr FMJ ball. No negative issues in terms of feeding / ejecting etc. with both the 7 & 9 round mags. Seems to favor the left side of the target a bit more than I'd like but will live with that.

I purchased the Bersa to replace my Walther which is a PIA. No regrets, the PPK is on consignment now. :D

That is great that you enjoyed you trial run at the range with your new Firestorm 380. That is one sweet pistol and you will have many more great days at the range. As you called it, it is a budget priced pistol because it is not cheaply made and well designed.

Best of luck on all your future visits at the range.

Thanks for commenting. As you can see I own a few well known auto loaders in terms of brand name recognition. That my new FireStorm performed this well right out of the box points to Bersa's attention to detail while offering a retiree like me product affordability. Not only is it fun to shoot but more importantly, I know I can trust it.

Great to hear your range trip with the FS went well. Hope your PPK/S sells quickly. I too had a Walther PIA 380 for a short period of time. After about a month and one trip to the range, I traded it for a second BT380, a used but pristine condition nickle version.

Thanks for commenting. Once my PPK comes out of the 30 day state backround check it will be a quick seller. You can only buy it used in CA.

Forgot to add my totally amateur photo. Nothing fancy, just functional.

This might sound stupid but I'm not familiar with the Firestorm. I own a Thunder 380. Does the FS NOT have adjustable sight(s)? Mine has rear with a screw for windage and I think the front is in a dovetail, if I remember right. Shouldn't be a big deal. :(

The FireStorm sights are fixed. It's strictly entry level. Your Thunder has all the goodies by comparison.
