That is a huge difference in power. A .380 could be pocket carried, but IMHO the Thunder 380 is a bit heavy for the front pocket. The Thunder .45 UC is definitely not going in a pocket and will have a major stopping power advantage over the .380.

Why not look at their .40 or 9mm? Same size as the .45 with higher capacities.

I have the 45 UC and two Bersa 380's. I have never had a ftf or fte from any of the three, so I trust them to be dependable carry pistols. The 45 is a bit too wide for me to carry comfortably, but that is personal preference really. I would carry, and have carried the 380 without hesitation. My wife packs one in her purse. Someday I plan on getting the conceal carry model, and it will be my Sunday carry.

I bought a Bersa UC9 Pro on a lark a few years ago and am still tickled pink by it.

It's one of the very few handguns I've owned that skipped the whole break-in period; it was reliable from round one.

I understand many among us think of .380acp when they think Bersa, however the 9mm, .40S&W and .45acp Thunder UC and HC models represent one heck of a value and bring more to the table, IMO.

Though the UC (ultra compact) nomenclature is a bit deceiving, it is still very much a compact, being about the size of a Cz-82.

I had a UC40. Decent gun but it is too thick for comfortable IWB carry

+2 for the UC series...I carry a stainless 45 UC myself and have not had a single issue in hundreds of thousands of rounds (I used to have unlimited ammo running the base range).

I see no reason for the .380 in today's market with small 45's and tiny 9mm's available.

Have both the 45UC and the BT380. Like everyone else, after a number of thousand rounds through each, not one problem. Well one. After adjusting the rear sight, I didn't lock the screw and the blade fell off. Called the service center and had another blade for the BT380 in a few days. Right now I the BT380 on my belt. Love them both and carry them both. I vary my carry depending on where I am going, time of year and phase of the moon.:D

My wife carries the BT380. She loves it.
