sometime between now and spring, Im getting my CCW permit, and another gun to carry, Right now im happy with my XD9 4" but ive always wanted a .45 and the ballistics of a .45 are better suited for self defence. I have been looking into the BERSA thunder .45, ive seen nothing but good things about the other models, the thunder .380, and thunder 9 a 1911 or browning hi-power are in my mind as well, but obviously more expensive guns. I know im not buying a glock, ive shot many and I hate the feel of them, and dislike the mag release, slide release etc. CN: I love 1911's but they are pricey and more effort to maintain them, and the BERSA felt really solid and good in my hands, waiting for some range time with one and some more people that have had experience with them before buying one. also, what are the going rates for used models and any reccomendations?
