    Whats the difference between a Bersa Thunder and a Bersa Firestorm ? I've got a chance to buy a Bersa .22 cal. Firestorm, what would be a good price nib? Are these semi-autos. one was described as a single/double action ? What the heck is that. All I've ever shot is a Rugar .22 Makk 1

    I don't know diddly about the differences in Bersa's, but if it were me, I'd buy a Ruger like you have been shooting! Quality costs money, but it's worth it. As far as the differences in DA/SA, or SA only, that, I can help with. A DA/SA pistol has a long double action(self cocking) trigger pull for the first shot, and a shorter single action pull (like the Ruger) for all succeeding shots, until the magazine is emptied. That can cause some confusion, if you don't work with it all the time. Like I said, I'd just buy the Ruger, since you're used to them already.
