Any thoughts on the bersa thunder
good and bad
what cal. Does anybody reccomend for c/c?
I picked up a .380 CC for the wife a couple years ago, nice little gun, just hard to find mags and grips for. The other Thunder models are easier to find accessories for.
I love the gun and for 300 out the door new it is real hard to beat. Good shooter and reliable so far, she is wanting to move up in caliber now so it really served it's purpose in getting her comfortable shooting. I went with the CC model because it is blended everywhere so she could carry it and not worry with snagging on her blouses.
She has carried it every day for two years and it looks almost new, I did have to put nail polish on the screws in the grips to keep them tight.
I really like my BT380; my sister likes it now. With the flat nickel finish, it is a nice-looking firearm. It isn't too big or tooo tiny for my comfort, and it isn't very heavy.
The only complaint i hear is from people who lack confidence in the caliber, but i think .380 should be adequate for up-close SD against unarmored attackers. Now, if a group of body armor-wearing ninjas attack, well it could be bad. Luckily we don't get many ninjas down here with all this humidity.
I own a Bersa Thunder 9 Ultra Compact Pro. It is the best gun I've ever owned. Comfortable grip. Easy shooting. Well placed controls. 100% reliability with any ammo.
Awesome gun but its a pig. Heavy. Shoots awesome. Eats anything. Mines been 100% reliable. Great ergonomics.
That said I'm currently trying to find a local buyer for mine so I can pick up a 1911.
Btw my reaponse was in referwnce to my UC9
I've got several from .380 up through .45. For ease of concealment plus fun at the range with less cost for ammo, I like the Ultra Compact 9mm.
It's a heavy gun for sure. I pocket carry it in the winter, but I just bought a CM9 for summer carry.
I got mine, a Bersa Thunder .380, for $269.00 + DROS and tax. I find it to be a really nice shooting gun. The recoil can be a little stout, but in 500+ rounds I have through it, I have not had one stoppage with any ammo I have tried, from factory ammo to range reloads. I don't really shoot this gun much, it is basically my night stand gun. Nice little companion to my wife's night stand gun, a Colt Detective Special 2".
