    I picked up a Bursa Thunder .380auto yesterday and my son got a Baby Jericho .40 S&W with 2x12 round mags and 2x10 round mags for $400, we shot them this morning and I tried to trade him my Bursa for his Jericho. No deal he loves that hand gun

    I really liked my Bersa Thunder .380. I think it's a sleeper and overlooked. It's a great value and an excellent little pistol.

    Wouldn't trade my Bersa Thunder... I love that gun, and so does everyone I show it to.

    Bersa's .380s and .22s are a step above their 9mm, .40 and .45 handguns. They have a history of spotty QC in Argentina, but nobody really cares because they are much cheaper than any imported weapon and their warranty is fantastic, you just walk into the factory with your gun and they fix whatever needs to be fixed, no charges, no questions asked.

    I had an older, all steel .22 that was great. It was a bit too small for my hands, so I sold it to a friend. But it was flawless.

    The factory manager is a friend of mine (he's a knife fanatic), and I've seen some of the tests they run. They're really trying to put out a quality product, sometimes local laws and government interference make it hard for them (they have several new models ready to hit the stores but they are stuck in a maze of red tape).

    It's a company owned by good people who are trying their best to promote shooting sports and gun owners' rights in my country, so I thank all you guys for buying their products.

    I had one for a time and I found it to be a nifty little gun and very reliable. My only complaint about Bersa is the mags are pricey. My EDC is a Walther PPK/S so I'm a fan of this type of gun. Small, easy to conceal, and decent punch with good ammo...

    Thanks for that information--it's nice to hear from someone who is operating on firsthand knowledge and not rumors. Tell them that I love my Bersa 380 and that it performs flawlessly!
