The Bersa Thunder 380 has a special place in the hearts in minds of many. Designed and inspired by the iconic Walther PPK made famous by secret-agent James Bond, the Bersa Thunder has been made for concealed carry.
The Thunder 380 has some out-of-the-box features that make it fairly unique. The external key has the ability to lock the entire firearm down and render it unusable. If you’re traveling for a long period of time or putting the firearm in storage – this lockdown system can keep the firearm safe while you’re away.
The Bersa Thunder 380 also features a magazine disconnect – which means the gun will not fire when the magazine is removed.
The benefit here is that if a concealed carrier accidentally forgets a round is in the chamber while cleaning or unloading the firearm, this feature may prevent the firearm from going off and causing an accident.
The Thunder 380’s slide is incredibly easy to rack – making it a great firearm choice for even beginner shooters.
Given its popularity, there are many holster options on the market for the Bersa Thunder 380. Here are our top 5 picks:
Top Bersa Thunder Holster #1: The Fair Chase Deer Hide Holster Size 3
All we can say is, “Wow.” There is no other holster on the market as soft, smooth, or comfortable as the Fair Chase Deer Hide Holster.
The leather is soft and supple – yet firm enough to protect your Bersa Thunder 380. The reinforced stitching is top-notch and the overall construction is solid. The Fair Chase Deer Hide Holster is an inside-the-waistband holster with an extended sweat guard that protects both you and your Thunder 380 while carrying.
The term “Fair Chase” in the product name comes from the ethical directive that 1791 Gunleather has placed on taking the deer. All deer must be taken using either one shot from a rifle or one arrow from a bow – no exceptions.
Top Bersa Thunder Holster #2: SCH – Smooth Concealment Holster Size 3
At 1791 Gunleather, we refer to the Smooth Concealment Holster as “SCH.”
The SCH is a great option for Bersa Thunder 380 owners who want an inside-the-waistband cow-hide leather holster that is comfortable and conceals well. The smooth leather backing prevents the holster from moving around on your belt and the leather front protects your Bersa Thunder 380 from being scratched.
The size 3 SCH holster will fit Bersa Thunder 380s without a laser sight or flashlight attached.
Top Bersa Thunder Holster #3: Open Top Belt Holster Size C
The Bersa Thunder 380 Open Top Belt Holster is a great option for those who want a simple, no-frills leather holster that will last a lifetime. (Guaranteed!) This size C holster will fit Bersa Thunder 380s and is an outside-the-belt holster.
The Bersa Thunder 380 Open Top Belt Holster features durable Premium cow-hide leather construction and a simple design that makes it easy to draw your Bersa Thunder 380. The open-top design also makes it easy to reholster your Bersa Thunder 380.
This Open Top Belt Holster Compact, conveniently referred to as the BHC, is hand-crafted from our Full Grain Heavy Native Steer Hide – and is thoughtfully designed to support the Glock 43, Bersa Thunder 380, and other similarly-sized handguns.
Top Bersa Thunder Holster #4: Rigid Concealment Holster Size 3
Our Rigid Concealment Holster (or RCH) delivers unprecedented inside-the-waistband performance. This holster combines all of the great features of our SCH with rigid leather that allows for a quick draw and re-holster without the top closing in on itself.
It includes a sweat guard, made of the highest-quality Cow Hide leather, that protects your body from rubbing against your firearm, increasing comfort and durability.
The RCH is designed to support the Bersa Thunder 380, Glock 43, and other similarly-sized handguns.
