    Wow. This is a novel topic for a thread. I'm surprised I had picture available.

    Hey Bob. Every now and then when I am feeling nostalgic I like to carry this. I have a homemade leather holster that rides high on the belt.

    Because I have such variety in my life, I cannot have just one EDC.

    And the moderators have warned me that posting my pictures uses too much bandwidth.

    This. Work in a suit and this is easy. And yes, the sunglasses are part of the carry system. :)

    I am having a hard time processing "380" and "Combat" so close together.

    I think that 380's are great for a small EDC... if small is more important.

    That might be my next purchase! Was the Cajun Gun Works package worth it?

    Yeah, does seem like an oxymoron. Is essentially a difference in the slide and sights (combat sights, easier to acquire). Size is important to me as I'm not very big, some would say frail. It is also important to me because the recoil of a 380 is manageable enough for my small frame that I take plenty of opportunities to shoot and train with it without having to use BenGay on my wrist afterwards. I have other, larger ones available, but the Bersa is my favorite, most accurate, and most comfortable - either carrying or shooting.

    I fired an LC9 once, didn't want to pull the trigger a second time. The ergonomics just weren't there.

    The Bersa 380 Thunder fits the bill for me for several reasons: I hate striker-fired pistols (I'm "old school"), it has enough heft to feel like a real gun (no polymers) but not overly heavy, is DA/SA, and is the most comfortable firearm I have. It is also simple to disassemble and clean, and 100% reliable. I would consider it a medium-sized pistol.


    To each their own...

    That's good enough for me... (if that even matters).....
    I'm with you on striker fires, poly they aren't near the top of my favorite list....

    Have you seen the Sig P938... Small 9 in a 1911 style... It's on my want list...

    Just looked it after your post. Nice, but not for me. As embarrassing as this is to admit, I'm not really in the market for yet another pistol. But my experience with the Bersa is great enough that I am considering the Bersa Thunder 380 Plus, with a 15-round double-stack mag. About the same size, weight, and shape (only 0.05" wider), and well under $400. Getting extra mags for the Plus is sometimes a challenge.

    A friend brought over his new Bersa Thunder 9mm ultra compact, which really wasn't much bigger than mine. It has a 15-round mag, too. I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with it, he plugged a 5" group offhand at about 30 feet. I suppose it takes a bit of training...Nice weapon, though.

    One big warning about Bersas: you won't stop with just one!:)
