>>27788897 I love my Bersa Thunder 9 Pro HC. After FFL transfer and state sales tax, I got mine for about $487. I bought Bersa Magazines from CTD for $36 each.
They are essentially an Argentinean Beretta. Mine is very reliable. I've run over 3000 rounds through mine and outside of a defective magazine, it has no issues (yes, I'm that anal. I keep track of how many rounds it has fired). Good for righties or lefties (you'll have to switch the magazine eject around for lefties).
The main drawbacks are: 1) Finding a holster might be difficult in a Glock laiden gun shop. 2) You will have to order your magazines on-line as most shops won't have them on the shelf unless they're a Bersa dealer.
My Thunder 9 sights are SIG #8's front/rear. So if you want to go fiber optic, just get ones labeled SIG #8.
Ok.. Follow up. I realized OP's photo is the Bersa 380. So THAT won't be like a Beretta. But it's a solid little fixed barrel pistol. The main thing I hear from 380 owners is the grip screw sometimes will come loose. But a little lock-tite on that fixes that.
The 380 comes in a 7+1 and the 380 plus comes in a 15+1 variant. The 380 has the magazine safety (which means it can't fire w/o a magazine). My Thunder 9 Pro doesn't have that "feature".
>>27788897 I got one of their .380s for my mom. She likes it. I like it. It hasn't failed or broken yet after a few hundred rounds. Other than that, the main complaint I was hearing is that it's too big for a .380. That's the main reason I picked it up. She's old with weak hands. The bersa was easier for her to grip and the extra weight helps her with the recoil.
>>27788897 I'd avoid Bersa. My dad bought one and the barrel expanded enough to stop the slide, and their warranty process was such a pain in the ass that he didn't even bother with it. Very much like Taurus, they're a crapshoot.
>>27788897 I have a mini Firestorm 40. Pros: -Good ergos -Ambi controls -Easy takedown (the 1 grip screw also holds the hammer spring) -Basically a Beretta lower mated to a Glock/Browning slide -Stainless model looks a bit like the Zenith from Deus Cons: -Unreliable with steel case or Tula brass -compact 40 cal, so kicks like mule -frame cracked in a non-stress bearing fairing area under the right side slide release (gun still works) -Front sight fixed -Proprietary rail
If you don't have the money for a Snake Slayer or a Judge, but you still REALLY want to put 410s through a handgun, then Bersa makes a decent gun called the Super Comanche that you can pick up for around 180USD. It's not the prettiest, and the plastic fore grip is rather shoddy, but it's a mechanically sound, reliable gun that you can get for a very reasonable price. I actually think that last statement exemplifies most of Bersa's products, and were it not for the fact that I'm just a whore for anything Walther, I'd readily consider a Thunder for a ccw. But that's just my opinion.
