I recently purchased the Bersa 380 Thunder at a local sporting goods store. I very much like the feel and fit since I have fairly small hands. It fires well although with a bit more recoil than my 1991A1 colt 45 Nat Match pistol, probably due to it's lighter weight. But my example was not well made. The slide protrudes at the rear with sharp edges. It is difficult to tear down due partly to some arthritis in my right fore-finger and the high spring rate in the slide releae lever. I had to send it back for replacement of the hammer whose nickle plating was flaking off. Right after that the trigger return spring broke and it is back to the factory for more warranty repair. My first choice in this type of carry weapon was the Walther PPK/S but the recent recall action to redesign the decocker (inadvertent discharges) has new deliveries from S&W delayed to as late as October. I think the best choice in this style of .380 would be the Sig P232 Stainless - it weighs 23 oz which should reduce recoil somewhat; at least that will be my replacement for the Bersa even if it is about $200 more.
