    Any experiences with Bersa in general or with the Thunder 45?

    Texas of course
    I've got Bersa .380 that I've had for about 6 years. Very good little gun. It's been 100% reliable with anything I feed it. Bersas are underrated firearms. They are well-made good shooters. I gave mine to my sister for a carry piece, if I didn't trust it with my life I wouldn't have given it to her to carry.

    I've heard both sides to the Bersa argument regarding reliability. With anything I suppose there are some lemons out there that give way to rumor.

    I have the Bersa .380 Thunderer. Great little pee shooter. When I first got it the gun was so tight I couldn't even load a mag. It loosened up after about 200 rounds and has been great since. I highly recommend the pachmayr grips available online. Huge difference in handling.

    I had the Thunder 9mm 17 round.It broke down for cleaning like my Hi power.Mags were expensive.

    Do you have a link to the grips? My wife has a Bersa .380 and the factory grips kind of suck. I just looked and couldn't find anything.
