Is this 380 worth the price??

One of my friends won a ruger 380 and now he is selling this one.

Its a Bersa 380 series 95.

He said $240 with holster or $225 without.

Do ya'll think that is a good deal?

$225 seems like an "okay" deal. That looks like a $10 holster. I haven't looked into these pistols a bunch so I'm not sure on the average reliably/quality of them.

for a used Bersa .380 pistol I would say the price is a little high even at 225. I can currently buy Bursa .380's at $ 245.00 Brand New.

Here's one example, Brand New Bersa .380

Im not a fan of the .380 caliber but, If I were looking to buy this one, I'd offer 200 with holster that I think would be a fair deal.
Good Luck

In fact I think this is the same model as you have pictured, Bersa .380, Double Action, Matte Blue, 7+1 capacity... $250.00

Thanks fellows.. I am considering it only to let my wife shoot it for awhile. Thinking it would be a decent small handgun to let them learn on before they move up to a bigger caliber.

I will offer him a little less or maybe trade one of my older 22's if he is interested.

If it's basically new, add the holster, no tax paid still may not be over the top!

I am not sure but I think you can get the ruger new for a little more
& owning the Ruger LCP myself not a good choice to learn on
do not know about the bersa but I know the Ruger & the Kel-Tech have more kick so to speak more of a twist in the hands then my .45 because they are so compact & light weight just to keep it in mind
I would shoot it first before purchasing it
My wife hates my .380 but I love it as a great concealment weapon

I've always adhere to the Walther PP or PPKs for this caliber. I want something that will work first time every time.
