Default Can you say Bond Arms Derringer!!!

Finally bit the bullet and got myself a "little" Bond Arms 410/45 derringer. This is a bad little gun, took it out yesterday shot some 410 3" 7 1/4 shot thru it, the kick wasnt nearly as bad as I had thought. The damage that this would do to an individual at personal protection range is unbelievable. The quality and craftsmanship of the gun seems to be top notch. I just got back from the gun store, gonna try a bunch of different ammo thru it next weekend to see how they all perform....I feel like it is Christmas all over again!

Well, I guess if you have a lot of "personal protection range" issues, cool. Didn't know Port Orange was such a dangerous place...

Be very careful with those.

We had someone with a derringer (think it was a Bond) fall out on the ground in a restaurant here and it discharged and killed a fellow patron. I dont know enough about their guns to speak about the safeties and how it functions...just be careful, I am not positive it was a Bond Arms gun in this cas but I am pretty sure it was...

I looked at those but went with the Taurus Judge "Public Defender" I use mine soley as a snake gun and the.410 is perfect. Haven't shot any 45 out of it yet.

It's a 45 long colt, right? I'm curious why you'd use such small shot - why not go for 00 buck?

I'm a life member of the NRA and a concealed-carry permit holder....

Having said that, doesn't this discussion belong in Dockside Chat?

Neat toy, not a carry gun though, would not be high on my list of personal protection pieces.

Why not, dockside, roadside what does it matter.. I thought the point was just an open discussion area? I may be wrong if I am I apologize...

And yes I did look at the Judge, great gun also. Just something about the derringer just got me. I spend alot of time in the woods and the durability and finish on the bond seems up there..

Seabob, you should see where I work in downtown orlando, have you ever been to Orange Blossum Trail?
And to be honest with you its not that I truely believe I am in danger, but I have always loved guns, my grandfather was a gunsmith, I was raised to respect guns, not much of a hunter but love to target and practice shoot. I do have a conceiled carry permit, I figured I would rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it. Ask anyone that was ever assaulted and most will tell you they didnt know it was coming. I don't think you ever wake up and think today is gonna be the day, maybe I will be extra cautious!!

Cracker, I dont really think it was a bond. The bond is a single action, unless it fell just right and pulled the hammer back as well as pulled the trigger!!

Yes I have heard the same thing If the gun has a plate that protects the firing pin with the hammer down it is suppose to be ok if not it is one dangerous peice.

Be sure to check on a firing pin block because I know in Jax they had a large derringer that fell out of a CCW holders pocket and it went off and killed another patron sitting in the restaurant (fell on the hammer). Please check on the firing pin block... I know this happened, I just am not sure if it was a Bond or not...

Ok, I will check it...thanks for the advice. I am still not sure if it will be a conceiled carry or not, but if it is I always get a quality holster that is comfortable and supports the gun safely..

The Bond Arms has it. You really have to want to fire this gun for it to go off. I bought a couple of them for my wife and I a few weeks ago. They are great little guns with lots of barrel, grip, and holster options. The double barrel Colt 45 is impressive and I was surprise how well it can be controlled.

Also, you never now when you need this kind of protection. The bad guy picks the time and place and does not tell you about it. Three years ago three of them attacked me while I was walking my dog just outside my home at 7:35 in the evening. I similar thing happened to me 29 years earlier. Also, I have never lived in a so called bad area. It can happen anywhere.

Remember, 79,746,393 gunowners did not kill anyone today.

I paraphrase of course. I don't really know the exact number of gun owners in America, but hopefully, you get the point.

Any idea what happened to the gun owner? Sound like a very bad deal. Jail time? I know a guy with a 1911 type that open carries cocked and locked about everywhere he goes. Makes bystanders nervous, but he does not understand why.

I am not real familiar with 1911's but I believe they have all kinds of safeties like a grip safety, firing pin block and a manual safety on the side, just to name a couple. Again, I am far from an expert on 1911's but they very safe pistols to carry cocked and locked..

The guy that shot and killed the lady by accident was not arrested at that time. He was carrying a large derringer that fell, hit the floor and went off striking the lady. she got up and said "Oh Lord" and died right there (very sad). I feel assured the guy or pistol maker will be sued. It happened in a Chicken restaurant in Jax on the westside.
