Are many Bersa 380 pistols like mine? My on/off safety switch is "very difficult" for me to use. It seems to be binding somehow and I have it well oiled. I inherited it from my brother and it is really pretty new with almost no use. I have been told it should loosen up with use; my problem is I am 78 and do not use a range very often though I am reasonably comfortable using a pistol. I would hate to know I needed the safety off quickly as it would not happen. It is hard to believe that the Bersa Company would release a pistol that is difficult to use. I know a lot of you reading this forum are more knowledgeable than myself about pistols , so I would certainly appreciate some suggestions. My thanks.
