    380 Bersa Thunder

    Since owning a handgun, I have always had a hi point 9mm. As I stated before to many people and on this forum (somewhere), I often carried it primarily in my truck. It is heavier than most 9mm I have handled and "more bulky" to have on your belt.

    SO, yesterday, I bought a 380 Bersa Thunder. I had been researching smaller handguns and came up with this one. Most places I looked in Tulsa, I couldn't find any, until yesterday.

    Anyway, what do you people think about the 380 Bersa Thunder? Maybe I should have asked this question before I bought it!! (But, I wanted another handgun and one smaller than a 9mm.)

    Holster

    Also, where IN TULSA can I find a holster for a 380 Bersa Thunder? (Without going online) I have found some online, but after paying shipping and handling, I am paying double of what the actual price of the thing is!!

    I like this little gun .. a .380 round can still pack a punch . Its a good close quarters gun. And cheap to shoot.

    Bersa made a good one here.

    Have fun with yours ... it should last a long time.

    I've fired a BERSA thunder 9mm before. never a .380 though.

    good guns I say, i mean I dislike DA/SA by personal preference, but it's a finely made pistol IMO

    380 Bersa Thunder

    Kind of a trick to disassemble, but once you find the combination its ok. The one I shot performed ok for me,

    Congrats on your new Bersa, you will love it!
    I personally own four of them, two being Thunder .380cc
    As far as a holster, a Uncle Mikes works well.
    Make sure you clean it real good before you shoot and put a couple hundred rounds thru it to break in good.
    You can go to bersachat.com and find some really good info there from vary helpful and knowledgeable people.

    Have fun with your new toy!! and get some good SD rounds.

    i have the bersa .380 and love it, i carry mine with a fobus paddle holster and oem 9 round clip (extends grip nicely), purchased the firestorm .22 to go along with it for target shooting and it uses the same holster (same outer dimensions), so far no problems. and i have put every jhp and fmj i could find thru the .380 with no problems.

    Decent little Gun

    I have the Bersa thunder gold in .380 for a back up gun and carry Federal Hydra Shock for sd rounds. I would not hesitate to depend on it good choise for a low price.

    Re: 380 Bersa Thunder

    I've got one that is a ton of fun. The only issue Ive ever had with it was shooting cheap low powered bulk ammo it would stovepipe on me. Funny thing though, it loves that tula garbage. My holster is a uncle mike's IWB, works great.
