The Bersa Thunder .380 is designed by the Bersa SA company out of Argentina. Designed to target the concealed carry market, the Bersa Thunder .380 was introduced to the industry in 1995.
The Bersa Thunder is built on a conventional blowback design which provides excellent accuracy. This model typically comes with a 7 round magazine, but also has a optional 9 or 10 round mag that can be purchased separately. Although the Thunder is fairly light weight, it still has adequate mass to keep the recoil to a minimum.
The Thunder comes furnished with a number of user friendly features like a small beavertail in the grip that protects your thumb webbing from slide bite, a manual safety/decocker, and a magazine disconnect safety.
Bersa elected to chamber this model in the .380 caliber in light of the popularity of this caliber worldwide. A number of countries have legislation and laws that restrict the caliber of handguns that civilians can own. In many countries, the .380 is the upper limit of these restrictions.
The most common complaint with the Bersa is the grip size. Individuals with large hands sometimes complain that they have a issue acquiring a full grip on the pistol. One solution for that issue involves the use of a +1 or +2 magazine extension that adds length to the overall grip.
Built with a lightweight aluminum frame, the Thunder model is perfect for extended carry. While it's not a "pocket" pistol, it is small enough to that it's easy to hide. Overall, it's a very reliable pistol at a reasonable price.
As the Thunder .380 is a popular model, gun holsters for it are fairly simple to locate. A number of individuals seem to think that the Bersa Thunder will also fit a holster for the Walther PPK or PPKS, but that just isn't the case. While similar in frame size, the Walther PPK has different dimensions.
