she bought a bersa thunder .380
I'm so sorry.
Just kidding - decent gun for the moeny.
she wanted something she "liked" we went to cabelas, she liked the taurus , the keltec p3at, the bersa thunder .380 acp
i suggested she get a used gun they had there, it was a s&w chambered in .41 magnum and it was only 299, i thought it was a great deal she got the bersa
Good thing she stayed away from the Taurus. I cleaned up a friend's mom's .25 Taurus and it definitely took some finger strength to reciprocate the slide, she couldn't even budge it. Mags sucked, saftey sucked, mag release sucked.
Something simple like the Kel-Tec or the Bersa was a much better choice.
The slide of that gun isn't designed to be pulled back - that's why the barel flips up. I can even barely do it.
What if she gets a phase 1 or 2 malfunction? I just think it's an extremely poor choice for carrying.
I like the Bersa Thunder .380. Nice choice.
That's why i recommend wheel guns to first time female gun owners.
Pics of gf?
congratulations to her! that is awesome!
that would not be my first pick for a firearm, but that matters not. at least she's got something, right?
Women are not weaklings or idiots. Don't treat them like they are, and maybe more of them will own firearms. Maybe more will own firearms that are actually useful in a gunfight.
And to quote someone from forever ago: There is nothing "thunder" about a Bersa .380.
it appears something very crucial is missing in this thread.
your gf and i rock the same pistol
I never said they were, but that doesn't change the fact that a wheel gun is the best option for a first time female gun owner.
You're an idiot.
What if the DA pull is too strong? What if they want more capacity?
Just kidding. You deal with too much pain to be a pussy.
Even though i've never come across anyone that couldn't fire a DA revolver, if the DA pull is too strong - they won't be able to operate any gun.
And if they want more capacity, I SHOW THEM SOMETHING DIFFERENT. But if they can't pull the slide back, i don't sell them the gun.
you know i'm anything but
just bought a .380 as my first gun because i wanted to conceal carry
still have it around for when i do
will be upgrading pistols before the end of the year nevertheless
If they can't pull the slide back, it's a lack of technique, NOT a lack of strength. With a few exceptions, of course. There are shitty guns that no one should carry. But any suitable carry gun is operable by any woman, barring physical disability. Again, I submit as evidence, an 11 yo girl, 75 lbs., doing JUST FINE on a pretty intense, two-day pistol course.
Nice, my wife carries one. Nice little conceal gun.
when we were at a gun show, she was looking at another one from a dealer table, and they guy told her it was too much pistol for her. She wanted one she could just leave in her vehicle, identical to the one in her purse. She looked the guy in the eye, picked up the one on the table, field stripped the slide and reassembled it without a hitch, barely taking her eyes off of the guy and put it back on the table, then showed him the one from her purse. She told him "Don't ever tell a woman what she cannot have". She went to the next table over to buy one instead, I manly pushed the baby stroller full of kids behind her.
I can picture all of this happening.
Mostly the husband pushing the stroller.
I knows my place. Baggage/kid/grocery/luggage/purse holder while wife shops.
