My wife has a Bersa Thunder .380, and a Keltec Pf-9 in 9mm. She loves the Bersa, but dislikes the Keltec.. Go for the Bersa.

Wow... I'm sort of amazed that your LGS would have such an exotic item... I had been thinking about getting a 15-rd. double-stack Bersa Thunder for .380fun but decided to save $ and just get the 15 rd.-er for the .380 I already have... Glad to hear you're enjoying it... Hey... Communicating... Cool...

I have 3, .380s. A Bersa Thunder 380, a Beratta Mod 70s and a beretta 86. All three are great guns.

BT380 - great shooter, prob free, great for CC light and small, I carry in a pocket holster

Mod 70s - great shooter, a few probs, a bit too big and heavy for CC

86 - excellent shooter, prob free, too big and heavy for CC

If I were to buy one gon today for HD and CC I would buy the Bersa you can't beat the value.

depends what you want it for. I like to carry my Bersa 383a for carry. its a good, reliable gun and with the single stack mag it is very wearable. you will have to try some different holsters and carry positions because the beaver tail on it has a tendency to be a little uncomfortable for IWB. I also like it because of its SA/DA.

If your not going to carry it, get a browning bda. My brother just picked one up and i have to say it is a really sweet piece. great for the range or in the night stand (if you want something other than a magnum revolver or a sawed off 12 ga for home defense).

Both of these guns aren't too easy to find but keep your eyes open. you will not be disapointed with either

Love my Ruger LCP. Super reliable and unbelievably accurate for such a small gun. So easy (too easy) to carry. I find myself carrying it when I should be carrying somthing a bit more substantial (I should know better). Score expert with it consistently on a police qualification course... And that includes firing at the 25 yard line, and that's with the almost non-existent sights!
