      Ya, I'm a smart A&&. I have been looking into that too and am going to stay away from Kel-Tec for now. I've just read to much bad about them lately. I've heard (never shot one) that the Bersa's are a great gun. Try to shoot many so you can confuse yourself even further. Seems the more I research, the more my brain gets confused. But I am getting old so maybe that's the problem. But I am getting old so maybe that's the problem. Oh sorry, did I say that allready. I am getting old so maybe that's the problem.

      As I understand it, the Bersa is the best gun for the money. I have a PPK/S, and like it very much. I've had no failures of any kind thus far, and it is more accurate than you might expect. Classic design too. Don't get the Sig...what an ugly gun.

      Had to chime in. I picked up a Russion Mak in 380. It came with adj sights and is the most accurate handgun that I have (out of 6). If I had to rely on a single shot to save my life I'd definitely take the Mak. The recoil is much more manageable than my Ruger 9mm which allows me to reacquire the target faster. I was in a bicycling accident a couple of years ago and light recoil is preferred at the range. I use my .22 for most practice.

      My wifes step dad always gives me grief about the 380 not having stopping power of a 45, and I always point out that I'd take one hit with a .22 rather than 10 misses with a 45.

      You'll get over it......

      We have a PPK/S and a Bersa Thunder 380. Both are good guns but the Bersa cost about half as much. We don't shoot either very much. Cost of ammo is rediculous, just as much (or more) recoil as a 9mm and not near as much fun as the 9mm and larger calibers.
      Our 380's mostly sit in a desk drawer as a back up, home defense weapons. I doubt if I'll ever buy another 380. You'll probably get over the 380 urge pretty quick and be the proud owner of a safe queen.

      Here's a real good one but you will have to fine it at a gun show or private owner. Why they quit making them I don't know as everybody and their brother wanted one and they are a little salty priced wise now.
      Colt Government model .380/1989.

      Got my wife a Bersa Thunder 380 about 3 weeks ago... we have shot about 160rnds thru it now without a hitch... my first 7 rnds thru resulted in 5 in the 10 ring and two in the 9 ring at 7 yards.. great gun for any price... ammo is high compared to our 9 (about the same as the 40s&w) extra mags are expensive and hard to come by... but she loves it so it is a keeper..

      I carry a Beretta 84 almost everyday and really like it. Not a cheap gun, about $625 in my area, but very reliable , very accurate, light and 13+1.

      I believe they're only available in nickel but they sure are purdy.
