Does anyone have any experience with the leather concealment holster that Bersa advertizes on their site for the BT380?


Price is definately right.

Welcome to Bersa Chat. I have one. I used it OWB & the clip was hard getting it on & off my belt so I took it out & ran the belt through the slots provided. Made of quality leather & I liked it. If using it for the 380 CC, the main draw-back is the pistol sits deep in the holster so you only have a two-finger grasp when you draw, then have to adjust your grip. The Thunder .380 may sit a tad higher & be okay. I tried my wife's Thunder in it, but it's been a long while. Seems it did fit a bit better.

I actually used mine for my UC9 & Firestorm Mini 40, but it's not suitable for the extra weight even though it is a better fit for the larger pistol. I don't think you'll have that problem with the .380. You are correct about the price. It is a good value for $24 & when you have 10 posts, pm a moderator for the secret code & get 10% discount.

Most people would recommend a custom holster, but if you want something minimal like this but one that has a bit more support you might look at the High Noon Holsters Bare Asset. It has an adjustment screw, and I have made if fit both a 9uc and my Walther PPS. It is VERY comfortable and, most importantly to me, very easy to get on and off if you live in a state like mine with a lot of restrictions on where you can carry. The soft leather makes it easy to adjust as you change positions (sitting, standing, etc.)

I use one often . I tossed the clip I run belt thru loops so holster is under belt (between belt and pants ) I have one on at present with my Dan Wesson 1911 in it ( that approx 38 oz weight) . It will work fine If you use that way You belt will help hold pistol in place and all disappears under shirt . If you want to use clip Then it becomes a IWB holster .
People once more If you going to carry a pistol even a lite Bersa 380 . You should invest in a good Gun Belt Not china mart junk . If you only doing 380 then might get buy with a thick work belt . But if the larger Bersa and other guns YOU NEED A REAL GUN BELT. They make a difference in comfort and helping to conceal your pistol

I shoulda thought of that! In fact, my first holster was a $15 nylon job from Academy & after about a week the belt loops stretched out so bad I had to wear my belt on the outside. :frown: Wore the Condors Flight holster this morning while cleaning up the yard & mowing. Works real well. I still prefer my pancake holster for distributing the weight because my 'yard working' belt is a 30 year old western style belt that I don't mind getting dirty & sweaty. It is pretty stiff, but it's not a gun belt & running the belt outside the little 'concealment holster' solves that problem.

Billy: These are available from Natchez Shooters for $13.49 made by Tagua. http://www.natchezss.com/category.cfm?contentID=productDetail&prodID=TYIWH002 Quality is very good too. The small fits the Bersa 380 Thunder perfectly. Worn as a inside the waist, it is comfortable but without the tension of the belt holding the unit against your body, there is no retention. They are nice to have as a quick fix, but a real fitted holster is superior. Tagua also sells a fitted "Inside the pant holster that has a clip and is formed to the BT380 which retails for around $25.

I guess you have to join that forum to get information about models he makes holsters for.

Hello Forum. My first of soon to me many posts to this forum. I am a relatively new Bersa Owner of the Thunder 380. I have have had the gun for 6 months now and I LOVE IT. However I am still searching for the right IWB holster. I work construction, own rental properties, and often dress business casual. I have yet to find the holster that really makes me happy. I currently have a cheaper nylon IWB holster but I find it rides a little high for my liking. I feel that it isn't as "concealed" as I would like it. I do not want to wear baggy baggy clothes or shirts, and if I have a golf shirt tucked or un-tucked I just feel it isn't as concealed as other holsters might be. I guess my question would be, is there a specific holster that would sit deeper in my waist than another? Secondly, The thunder has the pinky rest on the clip, can you buy a 6 shot clip that does not have the rest to reduce the size a little? I ask this just as a random question :) I have really considered buying the DeSantis Sof-Tuck but I would like some input. I like the pivoting option/action. Since I am up and down, and always moving in and out of the truck and around the job site I think it may be a good option to have?


I have also heard of people getting custom made holsters, this I will have to look into and find a leather worker and see what I can come up with.

As to the pinky rest on the mag you can file it flat off without any issue this will save you another 3/8" off the height of the gun. You might want to check into "Sticky Holsters" they are a IWB that has no belt clip at all as they are made of a self gripping material that does not slide or creep around once stuck in the pants.

http://remoraholsters.com/ for one vendor of the "sticky holsters". I've got one for my BT 380 CC. Fits in the front pants pocket just fine.
