I carry a bersa thunder from time to time copy of the ppk but a better gun in my opinion. Way better trigger and a better feed angle for hp ammo. Ive owned ppk's in the past and while the material quality is higher than a bersa the bersa is a superior version functionally than the ppk

My preference for carry is something chambered in 45acp but when i need to be uber discrete the bersa goes with me.

My grandpa has a Bersa .380 and I like the feel. I've just heard some negative things about Bersa. If everything functioning on yours?

The only problem I have had with my Bersa .380 CC is getting add on parts, like extra mags are hard to find. The market for extras probably is not enough to peak the manufacturers interest.

Other models of the Bersa Thunder line are easier to get extras for.

As for the gun I love it, easy to conceal, shoots well and so far zero problems after over 1K rounds.

My wife bought herself a PPK/S. They are very nice pistols. IMHO, they are a bit on the heavy side for the caliber, but that's my opinion. The wife loves it.

I've had a PPKS for 30 years and it looks pretty, but it is to heavy to ccw and I hope someone on here says they can hit with them because I have never been able to hit squat with mine, it's been retired to the vault for about 20 years or so. I really wish I had something good to say about it other that it's pretty and 007 carried one.

I use the PPK/s at times.

Though it is a little heavier than some of the firearms on market now.
