Just shot 150 rounds today with my 380, that makes it an even 1000 rounds to date with out a failure, of any form. I promoted it to carry around 600 rounds ago. Reguardless of price I like the gun and the way it shoots.

Hi byways, I use remington from walmart, or mag tec which I buy online from sportsmans guide-www.sportsmansguide.com, which has the lowest prices I have found. I bought their membership which I think was $25.00 a year. It gives special rates and discount coupons from time to time Right now I have $15.00 worth. Good luck and Happy Holidays.

Excellent little .380. Ive put about 200 rounds through mine so far and it has good accuracy with no jams. Only problem with mine is that the gun stings my hand between my thumb and index finger when fired. Im going to add a bit of rubber to the grip and see if this goes away. I dont have standard grips, they are contoured, so Im guessing its the grips causing the problem. For the money, the Thunder .380 is a bargain.

Decent gun with decent accuracy even though ive shoot tighter groups with large calibers regularly. Only problem is if you get the blued version its crap. Mine had surface rust within a few months. The rust never hindered the function of the weapon though. No malfunctions what so ever.

I recently purchased for myself a Bersa Thunder 380, new for $270. This was my first firearm purchase, but I have used many weapons during my time in the US Army. I fired one-hundred rounds of cheap Winchester Walmart ammo through the weapon and did not have a single failure to feed or ejection problem. It was difficult to gauge the weapons accuracy as it was well below freezing and we all had shaky hands that day.However, at about fifteen meters it was more than easy to keep the rounds in a torso sized target. I would say this weapon is at least as accurate as the Armys Beretta M9.
