I can't believe people describe it as 'long and heavy'! It's very small, slim, lite, and comfortable to carry. like any tiny pocket pistol, it's not accurate from a distance. But for what it is, it shoots pretty smooth.

Attachment 52777

This is it next to a Glock .23 which is the 'mid sized' 40cal. It makes the glock look huge. Even next to the s&w .38 special which is another 'pocket pistol' revolver I used to carry.
The trigger pull is long and heavy, not the gun...

My wife picked a Bersa and it is a good gun. We have not had any problems out of it yet. I would like her to carry a 9 or 40 but she wanted a 380. Neighbors wife has a bodyguard and it has a horrible trigger pull. You keep pulling and pulling. Lol. She has now decided to go with something else.

I've carried a BG 380 for over a year. I find it to be the perfect pocket pistol:
  • Long DAO trigger negates need for the safety (you do not want a short light trigger in a pocket pistol)
  • Very good sights for a pistol of its size (far superior to the LCR). Better yet, they can be switched out. I put XS Big Dot on mine.
  • As accurate as you can expect from it's size.
  • Easy to break down.
  • The magazine extension gives a better grip than most.
  • The built-in laser is great for training.

Downside:
  • Brutal to shoot. It is just such a thin gun. You will tire of it at the range quickly.
  • Well... it is a 380.

I am just not use to small pocket pistols. Close as I get is my G27. Lol. I think it is a good little gun for its intended purpose. The trigger is my only dislike of it.

I honestly don't think that I could bring myself to carry a pocket pistol as a primary, not after that Aurora Co wacko. Glad I've got my G19

If she likes the p22 why not look at the pk380. Almost the same gun, and she is already familiar with the p22. I bought a pk380 for my wife and she loves it. Very soft shooting , almost same recoil as p22. Not a blowback design so has a very light recoil spring which makes working the slide very easy.Only draw back is special key for takedown.
