    Bersa Grips

    I still need to oil it up and get it out to the range, but I think it is going to be great. It really fits my hand well, which was an issue for me with most .380's. that I had looked at...Kel-tech, etc. I will be interested to see what I think about the plastic grips, I am thinking I could see myself getting some rubber grips for it.

    wooddoctor - I will look at the Sig232, good to know what else is out there, I had not looked at that.

    Thanks to all for the advice, it was very helpful.
    Get some good grips for the Bersa. I would skip the rubber grips, they can hang up in fabric. I have a set of Marschal grips on my 380cc that are beautiful. Marschalgrips.com

    The Colt would be my first choice, but if i were you I would get the Bersa, the others, LCP, TCP, Kel Tech, and that new POS, Diamond back, are ALL PROBLEMATIC, I have a little knowledge of this because I have owned or shot them all, and before anybody starts about this or that being better than the other, the Ruger has outsold the Taurus because it has been out 2 years before the Taurus, i'm sure if it were the other way around the Taurus would have sold more, in any case if you want a trouble free gun buy the Bersa

    I agree with this post!

    Especially, the Bersa part. (20yrs & 1000's of rounds; ALL 99.9% trouble free!)

    As to choosing the Colt over the Bersa? I'm not sure I would. Colt has had some issues. But, they are an American company; and maybe a "Colt" would be a better "collector".

    I think you'll find the Bersa a better "shooter".

    Sig P-238

    Look at sig's P-238 nice gun. I have 2 ruger LPC's 1 of Keltec's P3AT and a Sig P-238 like the sig best.

    +1 on the Sig P238. It's a soft shooter, with natural pointing and great sights. However, some of the early productions were problematic. I would steer away from a used P238. Mine is reliable, finally. But I had to send it back to Sig twice. Still, I wouldn't trade it for a different .380.
