I just picked up a BERSA FIRESTORM 380 pistol. I have the same gun chambered in 22LR. I find these great guns with good accuracy and reliability. The 22 like CC mini mags best. Ed

i am selling a bersa thunder 380acp because it has beat up my shooting hand too much, starting with slide bite. i liked its handy size, solid steel heft and ease of fieldstripping. be aware that the thunder’s safety lever/decocker can shear off. it is a known problem on the bersa forum. mine did while shooting outdoors on a cold, not freezing, winter’s day. the part from bersa cost $10 and i paid a gunsmith $20 to replace it. 380acp is a great round. s&w shield ez 380acp has replaced my thunder, though the former is slightly larger.

I fixed a Thunder for a friend, being a blowback action the recoil is noticeable. I didn’t find it particularly pleasurable to shoot.

Never did get a approved for BersaForum... oh well...

I have a Thunder.380 that's back from warranty repair for the second time. Jams were it's specialty. Any modern firearm that requires a break in period is sketchy in my book. Bersa Thunder states a 200 round break in in the owners manual. I won't carry it for that reason.

I have a Thunder .380 that likes to jam on the last round out of the magazine. Haven't taken the time to really see what's going's not a carry piece so it's not a priority.
