My wife purchased this gun for me about two years ago and I love it!!! I have put about 400 rounds through it and at around 250 had the disconnecter spring go out. Gander Mountain fixed it as it was still under warranty, but it took them 5 months and me having to call their corporate office to get the issue resolved, never will they get a penny from me!!! But thanks for the free gift card!!!! I have also found that if you use "Foochi(sp?) ammo it will jam, the casing doesn't allow for a smooth transition from the magazine to the barrel. Other than those two things I find it easy to carry and actually prefer to carry it than my bulky Beretta .40.

Thank you all for your inputs on the Bersa Thunder .380 CC, especially tigwelder56 (I don't know how you hae the time to comment on the number of posts on different guns, but I'm sure we all appreciate it). My wife and I both like the handling and looks of this gun and it seems almost all the comments are positive. We intend to buy one for each of us in the near future. I don't see how we could beat it for the reported reliability and its reasonable price. Thanks again.

The Bersa is a great Value, good quality $350 gun..!

fiveoglock is an ass..!

Glock is a cheap gun, you are better off with a springfield XD model, or the Beretta Px4 Storm over a glock, unless you can afford a big boy toy, like my Sig P229, or My H&K P2000sk..

I agree with Stormtown. The Bersa 380 is a great gun for the money. I've had mine for 4 years now and I do carry it for personal protection. For plinking I use Megtech 95 GR ammo. The gun loves this stuff. Will shoot any hollow points. If your thinking of getting one, just do it. You won't be sorrry!!

Is the .32 the same size as the .380? Is it the same gun exactly just different ammo size? Thx

I've got a Glock 19 and a Springfield XDm. Bothe great guns. I have big hands and sometimes don't hit the grip safety on the XDm. Found a new Thunder cheap and decided to try it for my wife. Thrilled with the gun. About 500 rounds through it flawlessly. I don't think you can go wrong.

Just bought the cc .380 last week. Cleaned it and took it to the range. No misfires or fte's after 100 rds. great feel and weight. bought it for my concealed carry weapon. Found a great deal on it at academy for $260. So far it seems like a great purchase.

I just purchased my nickel plated 380 Bersa CC. I've shot the larger version and was very impressed with its accuracy. My question is the slide on the nickel plated 380 CC is really grumpy and you have to retract the slide to release the slide hold open lever. Is this pretty standard or will firing the gun make the slide easier to retract?

I love the gun fit and look forward to taking it to the range...
