    Good Morning Everybody. First time on this board. I just put a deposit on a new .380 Thunder Plus. My wife's birthday is May 5th. I bought her this gun for her birthday as a surprise. She started shooting about 5 months ago and likes it. She has been shooting our S&W .22 sport pistol. She likes that caliber. I wanted to get her something to step it up now that she is comfortable with .22. Also if she decides she wants her CCP I thought she could use the Bersa as her carry piece in her handbag. If she isn't comfortable shooting it then I figured its a another gun to add to the safe. And she can get something different that she is comfortable with. Anyway, looking forward to being on here.

    Greg

    Welcome aboard! I've always thought the best gifts were both practical and fun. Let us know how she likes it.

    Greg, welcome to the family. You'll love it here! Small piece of advice, if you don't mind... the Plus does have wide grips. Mine is on my hip right now, even right before bed. If your wife has smaller hands or if it doesn't feel right, try a Bersa CC, or maybe even a regular BT .380. You (and she) won't be disappointed.

    Thanks David,

    She actually has larger hands then me I think...LoL. Yeah I thought of the CC. My shop I buy from only had the plus which I put a deposit on. If she isn't comfortable with it. I'll keep the plus and get her what she wants. :)

    Just got home from picking up the new Bersa Thunder Plus. I can't wait till next Friday to give it to my wife for her Birthday. It's comfortable holding it. Excited to go to the range with her to shoot it.
