- Bersa Thunder CC and Thunder .380
Review by Terry (on 12/3/2015)
Both to cc and standard Thunder have been very reliable. Have only had 2 failures to eject completely (one in each pistol) in about 300 rounds thru both pistols. Both failures to eject (and load the next cartridge) occurred when I was firing rapidly and did not have a firm grip on the pistols. I have carpal tunnel and neuropathy and have picked these guns to shoot because they are so reliable for me. The smaller "mouse" guns are too small and have too much recoil, suffering problems with failure to fire, eject and jamming. I had to sell a Taurus TCP 738, which was well made and a perfect pistol, but I had constant problems, where others had none. The larger, heavier Bersa's and a Glock 42 have much less recoil and are not as prone to "limp writing." I highly recommend all of the Bersa Thunder models and the Glock 42.

All-around a perfect choice for a back-up or secondary hand gun.
