Bersa .380 Drum Mag: Is this just WRONG?

A DRUM magazine for the Bersa Thunder (.380?). (At Cheaper Than Dirt)

I saw some of these for sale at the BX today. A 22-round magazine for the lightweight, concealable semi-auto favored by some of my favorite lady bloggers. I guess you can carry one in your purse or large fanny pack just in case you need to provide suppressive fire for a fighting retreat or storming a stronghold, but really, is there a market for super-cap mags for marginally effective .380 ACPs?

What say you, Thunder fans?

    "Super cap" not quite at only 22 rounds.

    But OTOH, hell yeah! they need to make one for my .380 Thunder plus too.

    Um.... well.... I guess it has a 'neat' factor. Not a 'useful' factor, but not everything has to be useful. Neat has value too.

    A solution in search of a problem.

    Since the round is "marginally effective," that means you have to shoot the target A LOT.

    So this is a necessary item, fro safety and defensive reasons.

    And I won't have to buy so many magazines.

    That's what I'm going to tell the wife and I'm sticking to it.

    I'm changing to a CZ 83, 12 round mag for my conceal carry. using Pow-R-Ball ammo, I feel it is effective against the zombies. The CZ is all steel. Can't wait to try it out in a match.

    Fun. That's all the excuse it needs.

    Its getting mixed reviews at Cheaperthandirt.

    Either it works or it breaks.

    Bahahaha! Too funny. The Bersa Thunder .380 is supposed to be lightweight and highly concealable/carryable. This kind of obviates the point.

    I will be buying Daisycat's Bersa off her when she gets her new gun. Something like this might be fun but pretty ridiculous for serious use. I suppose I could keep it in my vehicle for clearing a serious zombie cluster on my way out of dodge...

    Still, 7+1 rounds of .45 ACP or 22 rounds of .380? I'll probably reach for the 45 first if my Remington 870 is not handy.

    Yeah, I'm wondering how I'm going to fit that into my ankle holster.

    They are missing a trick by not having a discount deal with that and a pistol bayonet.

    It's great for the range..not to conceal. I think that's the purpose.

    I'm not sure about the comment ?marginally effective" and a "ladies Pistol" I've been toting around my Bersa Thunder Plus for 3 years ,shot easily 2500 rounds and not 1 time did I have a fail of anykind, so you may not like it too much but I'd rely on this anytime.

    Will a 22 round drum work on a 380 colt mustang?? just curious ??.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say "No." If Thunder and Mustang mags were interchangeable, that fact would be pimped by Bersa pretty hard.
