I joined this form after paying for 2 Bersa Firestorms in .380acp. I got the 1st one home 3 days ago. The day after I got it, I field stripped it, cleaned it, and I've been handling it for the last couple of days. I had a Walther PPK/S over 40 + yrs. ago I eventually sold because it jammed often and I would get "slide bit". The Walther nor the Bersa Thunder is on the CA roster, so after contacting Eagle imports, they gave me a "heads up" about a recent shipment of Firestorms to a local dealer, so I bit on 2 guns. The Firestorm has a longer beavertail, taking out the mag dis-engages the trigger, plus the firing block and safety/de-cocker and the slide hold open lever gave me a sense of the Walther design being helped into this century via this gun. A good thing. Now that I've handled the gun for a few days, I've been reminded of how beautiful/timeless this design is...and has been for a 100 yrs.
