Bersa .380 Thunder, how much?

Someone at work has one for sell... says it only has 100 rounds through it and it has a black upper.

He is asking 200... is that too much?

They are hard to find and price is going up on them.

Lowest I have seen new is 220 for the duotone, but not in stock.

Nickel is 289.

Matte blue is 200.

Do you have any links with those prices?

I paid $260nib out the door for the nickel one I bought a year or so ago. Id spring for a new one if he's asking $200 though.

Do you like the gun overall?

I did some reading and it seems most people that have them hang onto it being they like it

Yes it was a great gun. I have no bad things to say about it. I have heard some say when new they jammed some until they ran a box of ammo through them. Mine never jammed new or otherwise. Only reason I got rid of mine was because I traded it for a shotgun. Next time I buy I plan on getting another bersa in .45acp

Online Auction Sites:

www.gunbroker.com
www.auctionarms.com
www.gunsamerica.com

These are good sites for finding ballpark prices. The Gunbroker sight tends to run a bit higher than local DFW prices. Keep in mind S/H charges as well as transfer fee and tax where applicable.

Bachman Pawn is pretty nice place in Dallas. They have a lot of handguns, but very limited in hunting rifles. I bought my brother a gun there. Luke has some good prices in there compared to other places in town.

If you are looking for rock-bottom price, try a gun show or seller to seller.

www.budsgunsupply.com - they have good prices for new.

www.galleryofguns.com - to see where guns are in stock.

OT: I like www.swfa.com for scopes and optics.

Have you checked out the Bersa forums? I've handled three that have a bad habit of releasing the slide when you insert a magazine. I'm sure there are error proof Bersas out there but I've also heard enough bad feedback about them to not want to own one. Heck, it's a .380. You'll forever be arguing on forums that's it's powerful enough for personal defense. The .40 and .45 guys don't have to argue its lethality. Buying a Bersa 380 is like buying a V-6 Mustang. You can convince yourself it's good enough but you'll always wish you went for more.

You'll be safe with the cheapest 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP from Wal-mart. Look for Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) and/or target practice ammo.
