    Ya know, I think that anyone buying a BT380+ would not mind paying a few bucks more to have an extra mag included with the gun. I know I would love it if mine had come with a spare. I can't find any 15 round Bersa 380 mags anywhere! :(

    First thing I do when I buy a new firearm...not matter what is included...is buy 2 magazines.

    The firearm is a brick without ammo and a feeding system..........

    I ordered 2 at the same time, but they didn't come in. Our little local gun shop doesn't have much stuff in stock. I'm hoping to find some soon.

    Hopefully they will get some in by February. They, like everyone else that sells Bersa mags, are out of stock. I managed to find a spare for my Ruger SR9 at a local sporting goods dealer Saturday and grabbed that up.

    Who knows... maybe by the time I can get spare Bersa mags I can find ammo to go in them! What a concept! Mags AND ammo. Shhhhhh...

    Try Gats gun shop. Dundee Illinois. I buy All my ammo from Gats. Boxes and bulk. I have many antique revolvers and rifles and ammo is always in stock from 22 mag to 44 special to 450 marlin. Good luck.

    Eagle told me they are expecting a shipment sometimes in "the next few weeks". We shall see...

    Yeah, Condor's Flight told me a wek ago that they were expecting a shipment in by this week and they'd e-mail me when they came in. This week is half gone and nothing heard yet. No problem though. All local stores are out of .380 ammo anyway. Wal-Mart had 3 boxes of TulAmmo today. Is TulAmmo any good? I've heard it's not too good. If it's any good I'll see if they still have it Thursday.

    I just saw a couple different auctions on gunbroker for the Plus 15 round mag. Problem is... they are running in excess of $100.... each.

    I bought my BT380 in December. Also the last 5 boxes of 380 +P ammo. 2 of those boxes were tulammo. You tube has some great videos on the 380. A lot of people have had problems with tulammo in their 380s. I have not had any issues with the tulammo in my piece. I had to tweek one of the 2mags that came with the gun. My neighbor is a cop and I shoot Winchester law enforcement loads in all my handguns. Mostly revolvers. I also have a hi point 9 mm that has performed beautifully since new. Ammo makes a big difference in some guns. If your gun is new I recommend Cci or Winchester.

    Bought mine at Cabelas. I was told up front that it did not come with the second clip. I called Eagle Imports and they sent me a new clip for the cost of shipping. However the wait was 7 weeks. Clips. Mags and ammo is hard to come by.

    I've been running Winchester, Blazer, & Federal thru my BT380+ so far and it's performed flawlessly. I think I'll stick with what I know works... at least until all the blooming idiots who are running scared calm down and the ammo shelves are restocked.

    Thanks for the info. When I talked to him he had 1 left and held it for me. The wife & I took the day to drive up (almost 250 miles) and get it. Didn't get to meet Charlie, but the guy behind the register was very nice, friendly & helpful.

    My compliments to a great little store and many thanks to case2214 for pointing the way.

    Managed to hunt up another mag for my BT380+, so now I have 2 extras. That'll do me until either they outlaw them or the gun world gets back to normal.

    I've been trying like hell to find 1-2 more mags for the fiances 380plus. Its been ridiculous. On gunbroker they're going for $100-160. I found a guy who said he had 2 new ones for $55 each. Now I can't get him to email me back after i told him i wanted both. Ugh.

    Eagle Imports.

    In mid February I happened onto the Eagle Import web site. Clicked on a link for extra mags for the BT380. It took me to price dumper. I got 1 extra stock mag w/ pinky grip, and an ACE nylon holster for 32.00 and free dilivery. The holster fits my H.P.C9 beautifully. Also picked up a 10-22 speed loader and 20 speed clips for my Mosin rifle. LGS prices are thru the roof and I will patronize them often, But I won't pay 55 bucks for a 380 mag, Thats insane.
