    Welcome.......................first, I don't think that you are purchasing an automatic handgun........second, if you google each firearm and look for Wikepedia, it will tell you what you need to know.

    All the best with your choice. I've had a Bersa Model 83 for over 20 years and its been a FANTASTIC handgun. Bersa is a great choice and I don't think you can go wrong. Get two of them while you're at it!!! All the best.

    Airbrush, I have the Bersa Thunder in 380, and love it. I bought it and really liked how nice it was in my hands. They decided to import the Bersa Thunder .22 again ( I guess they were not available for quite a while), and I had to check it out. Needless to say I now have both Bersas and they have been pretty much flawless.
    My 380:


    My .22:


    I added the wood grips to both of them, it really helped to fill the hand.

    I went to several gunshops today and saw the Bersa's kinda overpriced, it was crazy. We got a Taurus TCP .380 738 for about $100 less then you could get a Makerov or a Bersa (or even a Kel-tec P32/ P3ats), usually its the other way around.

    Bersa versus Firestorm

    First off they are made by the same company.

    Internally they are identical pistols.

    Externally the Firestorm 380 has a round trigger guard,,,
    While the Bersa Thunder 380 has a "combat" style trigger guard.

    There is some difference in the rear sight,,,
    My Bersa Thunder 380 has an adjustable rear sight,,,
    I'm not quite certain what the difference is for the Firestorm.

    Other than that I don't see more differences.

    My Bersa Thunder 380 and Thunder 22 have been flawless performers.
