The rubber grips provide a nice feel and secure grip during firing, They just feel better than the original plastic grips. I think it was $30 well spent. Night sights are something I just like. These are the Meprolight fixed sights. They are robust, well made and provide a good sight picture for combat type shooting. It was nice that the gunsmith installed them so my zero was not changed at all.
I'm not sure how many rounds I've put through my gun, but it is between 1200 and 1500 for sure. I still have not had any malfunctions in any form. I mainly shoot lower cost FMJ ammo for practice but usually run some defensive rounds each session. I have tried Hornady Critical Defense and Critical Duty, Sig V Crown and Federal Hydra Shok with good results. What more can one ask for?
It seems the more I shoot my Thunder 380, the more I like it. It has proven itself reliable, accurate and just a joy to shoot. The size and weight combined with a good IWB holster makes, in my opinion, the prefect carry piece. Thank you Bersa!
- Nice carry piece

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!!
