Bersa folks, how do YOU ccw your .380??


August 28, 2007, 09:31 PM
Wondering how you guys that ccw the bersa thunder .380's carry it. OWB, IWB, pocket? I ccw'd a SW 642 in my front pocket until it got relocated to my wife's vehicle. So now I am back into the ccw market. I may get another 642, but I like to view other available options. The Bersa Thunder .380 CC looks like a pretty good piece for ccw. about the size of the 642, a little heavier, but thinner, and a very reasonable price. Just wondering how most people carry this, and how much ya'll like it or dislike it. thanks

I have a Bersa Thunder (not the cc model) that I've carried IWB. It's a little large for me to pocket carry easily, but it's a great, reliable gun.

I carry mine IWB in a Don Hume. Very comfortable.

Mine is in an IWB holster when I carry it.

OWB in fobus-like belt holster

I have a nice IWB leather job from Ugly Bald Guy holsters:

It's quite nice on the whole and is a nice slim package. Retention is good, though one-handed reinsertion can be tricky. Still, nice for the money.

CC for pocket carry and Thunder for IWB
Custom Holsters for Bersa can be found a I have 3 Bersa and 1911's and well made and comfortable. He started make holsters because those of us that had Bersa including him. Couldn.t find a true Bersa holster. Nate is the holster maker of choice at .
Check him out for you pistol needs.

IWB is a Don Hume.
Paddle is a K&D.
Both are comfy

thanks for all the replies so far. seems like the preferred method is IWB and OWB. Michael T, is it difficult to pocket carry the cc model?

I use a clipdraw with mine. It's more comfortable than any IWB holster I've ever tried. And with the T380CC's manual safety and heavy DA trigger pull, not using a holster is not a concern for me.

OWB in a Galco Stinger holster. Very comfortable

Alessi IWB at 5 o'clock. It's the only IWB holster I own. All other CCW's go OWB.

(great gun, too).

Great gun, fun to shoot, dependable and accurate. I carry in an IWB holster in warm weather, coat pocket during cold weather.

I carry my Bersa thunder, strongside IWB, just in front of my hip with the butt angled up at near a 45 degree angle. In a holster I made from an old leather carseat cover. Worn with a t-shirt untucked it rarely ever prints.

I carry my in a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster. Fits and conceals well in the front pocket. I like the little Bersa at the beginning, but the more I shoot it the more I dislike it. The recoil is a little strong for the little 380. I get powder burn on my skin. I can't hold it comfortably, and of cause since i can't hold it comfortably I can't shoot it very accurately. The slide won't lock back sometime because my thumb get in the way of the slide stop operation. I guess i like carrying it but not shooting it.

I have one, and it's a good little gun, but I don't carry it for CCW.

August 30, 2007, 11:40 AM
IWB strongside 3-4:00
inside left ankle (i'm R handed)

well, thanks to everybody for the input. i belive anyone would be well served by the bersa .380, but i have decided to get another SW 642.
