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

    http://www.ubgholsters.com/

    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.

    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.

    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.
