    I haven't seen that model, but my former Bersa Thunder .380 was very reliable and suprisingly accurate for a pistol that small. My sister has it now, purse gun.

    Some people say that the .380 is not enough for self-defense use; i don't agree.

    They seemed to have combined some of the features of the CC .380 & the Thunder .380. I don't think they've hit the streets yet. Bersa makes a good pistol. Some of the .380s have been reported as being picky about some brands of ammo, but they are a very small % of those sold.

    P.S. With the right ammo, they are a good SD weapon. I guess penetration seems to be the big concern with the .380 round. But the Barnes solid copper bullet found in Corbon DPX & Buffalo Bore DPX give good expansion & decent penetration. Winchester's PDX1 has also tested well.
