Went to the store to buy a Walther PPK, and came out with this!!!
Went to buy a Walther PPK, walked out with a Bersa Thunder...and I have never heard of Bersa. I have to admit, the lower price almost put me off, since usually cheaper means worse! But the more I held the gun, the more I wanted it, and decided to take a risk.
Initial thoughts After 300 rounds at the range, and some disassembly and cleaning, I have to admit that I am very impressed. It is not Walther quality as far as material and fit and finish, but who cares? It's half the price and so far 100% reliable. I have had no issues with it, which is more than I can say about other guns three times the price of my Bersa.
Is this the kind of gun I would brag to my friends about? Probably not! After all, it's not an overpriced brand name gun like the Walther I wanted, but the real test for me is this: Would I trust my life to this gun? The answer is YES!!!
I have replaced my .38 SW snubby with my new Bersa. For someone that lives in a warm climate, I appreciate Bersa's slimmer profile, and the fact that the gun is about as reliable as my revolver is the icing on the cake.:mrgreen:
It must be a conspiracy!!
I did the same thing!! Went in to by the Walther came out with a T380 Duo-Tone!!:mrgreen:
It just felt better in my hand!!
I can't wait to shoot it tomorrow!!:smt068
