After alot of research, I finally decided on the Thunder .380. I took a ccw class with some co-workers. All of whom were former military guys with much more experience than me. They also spent alot more money on their guns than me. We compared targets after the class was over. Their guns may have looked fancier than mine, but I had the tightest groupings of all of us. Needless to say, I was proud of my Bersa. The only complaint I have is that there doesn't seem to be as many accessory options for this gun. That's a very minor issue though. I bought the gun for personal and home protection; not to make a fashion statement.
