    i own 2 bersa handguns, the .380 and the uc 9mm.
    i haven't seen anything on this site about them, so im just putting this out there...

    they are pretty amazing guns if you haven't tried them out.

    reasonably priced, very accurate, good looking and very good feel.

    anyone else agree?

    I have a Bersa .380 that I picked up dirt cheap. It is the last remaining .380 at Chez Rock.

    Excellent product, especially for the price.

    I think they had a 13 rd version back in the late 80's early 90's, but can't remember fo sho.

    I would need to check the model on mine. It is a 7rd .380. A friend had two and only needed one. I think I got it for $75 or $100, unfired. Bought several spare mags. Picked up 10 cases of .380 FMJ for $5 per 50 at a local gunshow about a year before it became unobtanium, so I have a lifetime supply.

    I think it was less than $100.

    I'm in SoCal.

    .380 ammo went from "Every store is filthy with it", to "Where can I find some .380 ammo?" in a matter of months a couple of years ago. I saw it selling for $65 per 50 for a while because it was so hard to get. I even had to send a few boxes to my buddy in Durango Colorado when he got his LCP, because it had become "unobtanium". It is avail again now.

    He said 10 cases. I am thinking he is talking about 5000 rounds.

    I have the Bersa Concealed. It is a single stack with an 8 round mag. Great little gun.

    10 cases is 10,000 rds. For a gun the gets maybe 50rds every other year through it, I would consider 10,000rds a lifetime supply. Plus I had about 1,500 S&B left over from the 90's. Plenty for me.

    I had the duo tone Bersa Thunder 380 and liked it a bunch. It was an excellent, fun and dependable little shooter. I decided that I really didn't want to go smaller than a .38spl for a BUG and sold it. I have to admit that I've been thinking about getting another one just for grins. However, it's low on the priority list right now.

    Bersas are the unknown bargains. They are very hi quality pistols and bargain prices.
    No they are not the quality of Kimber or another super hi dollar pistol but I would say they are as good as many Smith and Wesson and Ruger pistols I have seen. Better than Taurus by a long shot. And Bersa manufactures for military and police over seas. So that should say something about the quality of their guns.

    We have two BT380s. With well over 2000 rounds through my wife's and 1500 in mine, we are very pleased with them. They are definitely one of the best values around. You can get a lot of information on them at Bersa Chat Forum. They are very accurate, reliable and easy to carry.
