I already owned a two toned Bersa 380 Thunder and with the cost of 380 ammo beinbg so high, decided to get a .22 to practice with. This gun is pretty much a double for the 380, and even more of a pleasure to fire. Some reviews said I should use a high speed round, so I started it off with 50 velocitors. Then I gave it a try with 100 rounds of the Winchester X ammo. I would say the Velocitors loaded easier, but both fired without a problem. Pretty accurate, reliable, and fun. Magazine spring was a bit stiff, but so is the one on the 380, probably because they are new.
It's not a target pistol, but about as accurate as the 380, which is fine for self defense.
Take down and cleaning on both is a breeze.
