I wanted a small .380 pistol for conceal carry, but didn't want any of the really small pocket pistols. This all Steel Bersa Thunder fits my needs perfectly. I really like the fact that the size of this pistol fits my hand quite well, and the all steel helps absorb the recoil of the .380. I had to send the pistol back for a repair once, and since then it's been a reliable little pistol. It shoots most ammo with any problems, and it's fairly accurate out to 10 yards. If you looking for something other than the "Plastic" pocket .380 guns, give this one a look. The only thing I don't like is the magazine safety, which prohibits the gun from firing if the magazine is not inserted in the gun.

Good quality and pricing from Buds, but after shooting it found it to not be my cup of tea, good pistol but not for me.

This .380 operates well and is especially well suited for those of us with smaller hands.

I have seven different firearms. Just bought this 380 Thunder. I've run 200 rounds through it so far. I have to say this is one nice gun and eats anything I feed it without any problems. Will buy another one. And as always Bud's shipped it fast! Thanks Bud =)

Feels good in the hand! Nice and heavy for a 380. Reliable and easy to handle for experienced shooters! Big ups to Bersa

Only 28 rounds shot through this pistol so far. It ran perfectly with TulAmmo steel-case ammo. However, it is a bit snappy for a gun this size (3.5-inch barrel).

Similar to Ppk or p63 worked fine

Excellent pistol, shoots like a dream. Eats everything I run through it. You can't beat the price and with Bud's service on top, it's a no-brainer.

The bersa thunder is a great looking firearm feels good in the hand. And has that Walter ppk look for a fraction of the price. Have not shot it yet due to high cost of ammunition and hard to find yet.

I am impressed with how well this pistol shoots, its size for 380 is large than the others, almost no rercoil, earned five stars with me

Got this pistol as an EDC. The beaver tail, so far, has not dug into my side like I was worried about. I was a bit iffy on buying an Argentinean pistol at first, but it worked flawlessly from the first shot with a little sight adjustment. I've carried it for a couple weeks now and haven't experienced any issues. The finish on the frame could have been a bit more durable, but considering the price, I'm fairly happy with it overall.

Best 380 that i have purchased 400 rounds no problem at range.

Feels perfect in hand. Shoots very accurate. No misfires or problems with 100 rounds. The handle (beaver tail) can be ruff on the hand after shooting. I love it

This was an impulse buy because Bud's had them so cheap. This is an easy gun to shoot accurately. Awesome trigger and nice sights. I am affing this gun to the EDC rotation. Fabulous handgun! As usual, Bud's my buddy!

I bought this Bersa for my son and he loves this gun.It is of good quality and so far not picky on ammo and no FTF.Some reviews I read and videos I saw seem to not match up with this purchase.

Good little gun. A bit heavy but made well and shoots well. No problems at all when shooting it. Recommend it.

This is a lovely little gun,was looking for a firearm that would suit a one handed person. After researching around the net I decided on this little baby. I have still not made it to the range yet, but am very eager. Buds was great through the order process. I love the layaway choice, handy for folks on a fixed income. Thanks Buds for a great looking gun.

Had previously purchased the Bersa Thunder 380 Plus and found the grips too big for my hands and a little bulky for concealed carry. So I purchased this Bersa Thunder 380 8 round model and it's perfect. Shoots great and is very accurate right out of the box.

A smooth firing little 380. My girlfriend likes the bigger 380s more than the LCP sized pocket pistols. She's now paired down her choices to the Walther PK380 and the Bersa. I've hearsome things about the quality of materials used in the manufacture of the Thunder, but I took the chance anyway. So far I'm not disappointed. The gun is comfortable to shoot, we've had no issues so far after 300 rds, and my lady likes its size and ease of function. It took a while for Bud's to get this little piece to my FFL but no harm done. Bud's still gets my five. I'm giving the gun five with reservation. It works well now and I'll just hope for the future. We'll see how it goes. So far, my lady and I are pleased with the purchase.

Gun was affordable and was shipped in a timely matter, like in the way Bud’s always does. The one thing that kept me from giving it a full positive review was the condition of the Bersa when I opened the case. It looked good, but the top had a few dirty spots and the magazine well needed to be cleaned and I don’t know if it was due to something being on the magazine that got up in there or the other way around. Either way, I’m happy with it and made a great Christmas present for the wife.

I love the gun. Only problem is how hard it is to find magazines for it.
