Review by Dennis (on 7/9/2018)
Someone suggested the Thunder 380 line. I checked reviews and considering the cost, I took a chance. I'm glad I did! This little beauty shot great out of the box with several kinds of ammo. I have about 500 to 600 rounds through it without one hitch of any kind. My eyes and muscles are not what they were 30 years ago but I find I can get all the shots in a 6 inch circle at 20 yards firing double taps (not careful aimed bullseye shooting}. About 2 inch at 7 yards. That's more than acceptable for defensive shooting in my book.
I just added the rubber grips but have not shot it since installing them but they feel great and I'm sure will enhance the shooting experience.
I strongly recommend this pistol to anyone looking for a compact, reliable, accurate and good looking carry piece.

ADJUSTABLE SIGHTS! Adjustable sights in my opinion, do not belong in any Pocket Pistol!
The Finish would be another which could be improved. Nevertheless, however; my trust of this weapon has found it's way into my family member's house. Accuracy, simplicity, dependability best describe this little "fighter."
On a lighter note, thank the stars that Bersa offers the Thunder Combat and Thunder CC
for those who "favor" fixed sights and yes! A bobbed hammer!!

Shooting the .380 ACP in a gun this size is a breeze. The single action pull is nice and this gun is ACCURATE. I think it's because of the fixed barrel; I am by no means a great shooter. It has also been very reliable with I think one FTF in the first 100 rounds but otherwise no issues. It's had about about between 900-1000 rounds through it. It runs with all types of ammo and I carry Hornady 90gr FTX Critical Defense for self defense.
I took my first practical pistol course after getting my CCW with it and did great. At first people looked down on this "lowly" 380 but the gun ran without a hiccup, through 300 rounds that day and made me look pretty good in the accuracy department. There were people with fancy polymer guns and spiffy 1911 that couldn't say that. In fact, that 1911 gave his poor owner so much trouble I doubt he has ever trusted it. Me? I know I can trust my life and the lives of my family to the Bersa Thunder 380. I can't give a better endorsement than that.
Some criticism might be that it does have some pointy edges such as the beavertail, saftey/decocker and the slidelock. These can sometime poke into you when carrying. I have found a good holster helps prevents this. I bet the Thunder 380 CC and Thunder 380 Combat models don't have those issues as much.
