I think you're spot-on about Bersa. Got my Thunder Plus three days ago. Figured I couldn't miss for the price. Turns out this is a great little shooter. Put 200 through her yesterday without flaw.
My wife and daughter will not shoot anything but 380. The Walther look-a-like blowbacks fit the bill. My daughter stole my CZ 83 several months ago so I figured my new Bersa would replace it. Now my wife favors my Thunder. What's a guy to do? Just plain fun to shoot.
These are both very accurate pistols. Neither really needed a break-in. Great buys. I'll check out the Bersa Chat.com
