Unless inflation has increased prices here in S.W. Oregon since I last looked at Bersa's, the going price was around $350 + or- $10 for new Thunders.

I have 1500 rounds through my Bersa thunder 9 High cap, No failures. My Thunder 9 Undercover have 850 rounds, No failures. Bersa thunder .380, 500 rounds 1 failure on second mag, since then none. They are as accurate as they need to be. I have nothing but praise for the underdogs from argentina. Great, Inexpensive handguns.

Thanks. I found a Firestorm 9mm on AuctionArms.com that I thought I could get for about $240. It was used and wouldn't eject the casings. I figured the shipping, FFL transfer and then about $25 for parts and shipping to make it work and thought it would be OK, but it went for $255. All done it was too close to a new Thunder from Buds Guns, so I let it pass. I need to go to the VA Thursday at Temple, TX so I will visit the Academy Sports down there to see what they have reasonable. I'll let you know if I get a new gun.

The dollar to quality ratio for a Bersa is exceptionally good, I don't think a person could go wrong in buying one.

I just picked up an old school bersa 383a last week and so far i love the thing. I have had it at the range a few times and have had no jams or misfeeds. I do carry it sometimes but i still feel more secure with my Taurus 605 on my hip. the best thing about the gun is it was only $190 out the door. its not in the best shape in the world but it shoots like its fresh out of the box. From what i have heard they are not the easiest guns to find and for the price i would pick one up if you ever have the chance.

I have had a Thunder 9 for a number of years now. It has been totally reliable and the trigger was one of the best out of the box that I have seen. The only negative I have is the grip. It is a bit large for my hand and unfortunately smaller grips are not available. Several times I have thought of buying a new grip and sanding it down to fit. One of the big attractions of Bersa is the low price, the balance of this is the cost of magazines. For more information visit Bersa Chat Forum.

I have both the 45UC and two BT380's. Love them all. With the 45, it is very accurate,reliable and a pleasure to shoot. I only have maybe 500 rounds through the 45 with no problems. with the BT380s, 2500 and 1500 respectively without any problems at all. What is there not to like.

The only negative I've heard is that mags tend to be pricey and hard to find sometimes. I've known folks that own them and they have been happy with them...
