I picked up a used Bersa 380 Thunder CC model a couple of years ago. It shot very well, wasn't finicky and I never had a lick of trouble with it other than the previous owner had done some trigger work on it and when it went in to SA, the trigger pull was way to light for my liking - I originally got it as a CCW. I ended up trading it off because of the trigger, but I would have no problems in buying a new one. Yes, 380 is more expensive than 9mm which is a little bit of a drawback but it shouldn't break anybody to use a few rounds to keep in practice. If I was going to be shooting 100s of rounds, then I'd opt for a 9mm.
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
