I need some suggestions and opinions. Short version of the story is my buddy is getting his CCW and is now in need of CCW gun. He does not have a ton of spare cash but would like to find a reliable gun in 9mm or .380 and has mentioned Bersa. He would like to spend around $300 if possible.
To be honest, I know very little about them but was curious what some real world experiences are with either their 9mm Compact or their .380 Thunder.
Is this a decent choice as a CCW or are their other lower end guns he should consider? I tend to stick with S&W, Ruger and the like so any suggestions or opinions are welcomed.
