    I just bought my wife a thunder 380 for carry for a Mother's Day gift. I have nothing but beretta hands and hope this is just as good as them. Shot 50rds thru it between her and I and like it so far.

    Welcome to the Bersa forum. I'm fairly new here too and I hope you and wife have nothing but good experiences with your Bertha .380.

    The second I looked at that picture, I immediately picked up inconsistencies. So, that got me thinking... do I really have such a life so boring and so pointless, that I can recognize any model of Bersa and the mag its supposed to have? I really do need to get a life.

    That's the mag that came with it. It's not a cc 380.

    I am really sorry; I didn't mean to offend you. You are correct that its not a CC. A CC is a wee bit smaller. That particular model is a "Deluxe", which is exactly the same as a regular Thunder .380, except for the magazine. Again, no offense intended, but the magazine for a Deluxe is really ugly. Here's a picture of a Thunder with the Deluxe magazine.

    No problem sure you know more about them then I do. I only have two other handguns before the bersa and they are berettas. I know them alittle better. That's why I joined this site to learn about bersas.

    Hi. New to Bersa and shooting in general. I purchased a Bersa Thunder 380 with the laser. I like the feel of the gun... it is small and is a good fit for a girl's grip. However, due to an injury I have a tough time chambering my first round by pulling back the slide. Is there another way I can accomplish that without having to risk safety?

    That's why my wife likes it. I have a full size beretta 92fs 9mm and cause its a double stacked mag it's to big for her hands.

    We really like ours too

    I bought one for my wife to try out. She liked it, but so did I , so we now have "his and hers" matching Bersa Thunder 380's. Ours are not the Deluxe version though. I carry mine on a regular basis if I am not carrying my SIG. My wife liked hers and the Bersa line so she also ended up getting a Thunder Ultra Compact 40. She shoots real well with both. So, now we alternate between who gets to buy the next gun!! :)

    Try holding you're Bersa in your right hand like you would to fire it. However, take your left hand in a pulling position on the slide not a pushing position. Your thumb will be on the right side of the slide with your fingers on the left. Now you pull with your left hand and push forward with your right (holding the pistol). Worked for my daughter and might work for you.

    I recently purchased a Bersa, Model 223, with one magazine. The mag looks like the same mag that comes with a Thunder in 22lr. Can a Bersa Thunder magazine in 22lr fit the Bersa, Model 223? If not, does anyone know where, or from whom, I can purchase two or three mags for the Model 223?

    As everyone can tell, I am new to this forum - lol!

    Not only am I new, I am also a computer novice; and I do not know how to navigate through this forum any better than I know how to navigate, period! Therefore, please be tolerant of my stupidity when it comes to posting questions and/or encouragement. :eek:
