Is there a magazine size limit in Peru? Are you not allowed .38 Super? I've heard other countries with similar laws allow .38 Super because it is not a military caliber.

Sniper03,

Glock has been selling two .380s internationally for years. I believe they are the models 25 and 28. If available to the OP, I would personally steer him towards one of these two (if we're recommending Glocks) because he isn't getting the gun for concealed carry, therefore size isn't an issue. It will be a car gun. He would get more capacity with the 25 or 28 than the 42.

But I have no experience with any Glocks in .380. Just throwing out some food for thought.

It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.

Personally, if I were in the market for a .380, I would like the Walther. They're very nice guns that feel very good in the hand.

The Bersa is a clone of Walther, correct?

The bersa does tend not to be nearly as picky as walthers can be and cost closer to 1/2 as much and walther does not make a 15 round version.. With bersa being made in Argentina there a heck of a lot closer to your country too.

Also a tad lighter I believe, as the Bersa has an allow frame (steel slide).

If you have any interest in a smaller revolver, my nephew recently had a .380acp revolver. It used something like a "moon clip" to hold the rounds together (no cartridge rims to seat on the cylinder). It was interesting and very soft-shooting for something that small. It seemed like a good backup/concealed carry handgun.

You might want to look at .22lr -- .22 Magnum -- .32 acp and .380

Sorry guys I had technical problems with my computer....but Im back.

Thank you very much for all the replies and suggestions.

I see many of you recommend the Bersa, incredibly the gun shop, and I stress THE because its the only one in town, doesn't import it.

They carry Baikal, Sig Sauer, Ruger, Glock, Taurus and Walther.

Of these the one with the most capacity is the Glock 25, and the Sig Sauer.
I think I trust Austrian and German design and craftsmanship over the others...what do you think?

The Sig is $827 and the Glock is $912.

My wife feels the need for protection at the home as well, when Im at work, she is small so I was thinking of getting her a rifle, the Marlin 60SN. $357

Im thinking it will be easy to point and shoot in stressful situations and has 14 bullets capacity.

Opinions?

Glock would be much simpler to use under stress and with less practice, in my opinion. If that is the Marlin I think it is, it fires .22LR; a .22 is better than no gun, but I would rather have a lower capacity shotgun myself. Doesn't Baikal sell some nice shotguns, including some double barrels (for simplicity)?

I do love the look of the Sig p232, though; I've never shot one, but they are pretty little things.

Is capacity your goal? I suppose it almost has to be since you are limited to .380 ACP. Personally out of your brand choices I like Sig Sauer. They are excellent quality guns. Its a bit remarkable that Glocks are more expensive than Sigs for you though. Personally I would go with Sig Sauer, and just train enough with it to become proficient with how the gun operates.

I agree with Orangello. A shotgun would be an excellent choice. Even if you have a side-by-side or an over-under, two shots of 12 gauge or 20 gauge is probably better than 14 of .22 LR.

I think I didn't explain myself, my wife wants a gun for her to have at home while I am out. Thats why I thought of the marlin rifle, there is no way she can carry or shoot a shotgun. She is very small
