Definitely a good move. I've never been impressed with Taurus' products aside from the Judge, which is more innovative than impressive in my eyes. I've gotten to know Taurus as a gunmaker who mashes the aesthetics of other brands together and makes crap for innards.

I've only ever owned one and it was the Bersa Thunder 380 and it was a great gun. Sold it to a friend several years ago and I am thinking about picking up another one in the near future.

My favorite 380 is the Bersa I have the Thunder and the Firestorm, My wife has the Walther PK380 that she really likes.

Favorite .380 is my Ruger LCP.

Yup, great little backup when outdoors and even primary for city carry.

Another vote for the P238. I tried the P3AT and the LCP. They are not conducive to practice. The P238 is fun to shoot. I wont buy another Taurus.

ive got two bersas a 15+1 and a 7+1(which has 3-dot pink sights!!) my wife has a 7+1 bersa duotone. fantastic guns. i carry mine in hot weather on occasion depending on where im going. low potential threat area ill carry the bersa just to avoid freaking out the sheeple but mainly so im not a priority target by ocing and advertising im a threat to a goblin.

My LCP is my favorite .380. Why? Because it is the one I have!
