Almost all of the post responses have been favorable, so I will definitely be getting one of the Bond Arms models, probably one with a longer grip and and 410/45 LC. But then, what should the extra barrel be 9mm?

I have the Texas Defender with the 38/357 2.5" barrel and then bought the 3" 45/410 barrel. It is very sturdy, not a pocket carry, and a very difficult trigger pull for me. Not sure I would use this as a back up. I think an LCP or other small pistol would be better.

Along this line of discussion, I just noticed this Bond-built version for Inland Manufacturing. Now, that was a shock! Bond continues to expand the market, and no doubt in my mind that they are a great, growing company. Being a fifth generation Texan, I'm always glad to see our home companies do well. I'll be keeping track of this part of the venture.

GONRA sez not to forget the 9mm semiauto BOND BULLPUP9 - copy of the Boberg.
Got mine some days ago.
Will be interesting to see how this goes for Bond Arms. BOND BULLPUP9's are pricey....

Didn't Bond buy Boberg?

Bond DID buy Boberg about a year, or so, ago. Theyv'e been really busy developing the little Nine pistol. There have been a series of small design improvements according to what Bond's alerts have said. I think they are finally making them available to the market. They actually had a sale of a few remaining original Bobergs, briefly. I'd like to have one, but probably will never will. It IS an interesting design. I wish Bond well on this part of their business.

Like anything from Bond Arms.

I'm sure it will be both expensive, and exquisite!

Probably not as much as a Wilson or Nighthawk 1911
though.

Hey, I carry my Snake Slayer, daily. In a soft pocket holster, I scarcely notice it, even with the heft it has. I DO agree that the trigger is un-necessarily heavy. I like the idea of firing five .35 caliber buck in one fan of the hammer. I also agree that the LCP may be a better carry for some people. That is a nifty little gun, although I still think the derringer would be a more effective weapon in close use. I use both .410, or switch barrels, and use .38 +P. Either of those would be better than any .380, in my old limp-brain opinion.

Great discussion, here.

He folks, I've got three "CA" Bond derringers including some of the first ones behind enemy lines that had fixed NO SWAP barrels. Initially I found the trigger a bit odd as well and difficult if not heavy to pull.

That was until I took the little guy apart just to see the geometry of the gun. It was there that I found that the trigger doesn't get pulled back (unless you yank it really hard), but actually levered down. Dry fire the gun a couple of times looking at the profile of the gun and you'll see what I mean. The trigger comes almost straight down for the sear to break and the hammer fall. Once I figured that out and adjusted my pull accordingly it was no problem. Smithy.

bond arms is having a labor day sale on barrels. i ordered a 2.5" 380acp. i wanted a 4.25" 410/45lc but they sold out fast. a few months ago i found 45schofield for $25/50/box. easy shooting out of a bond, cream puff out of a ruger blackhawk.

I had the chance to handle the Bond Bullpup (slightly updated version of the Boberg) at the NRA Carry Guard Expo last weekend. I'd really like to shoot one. Great little pistol.

I think them a neat novelty. But as they are as expensive and no more concealable than say a micro 9mm or 380, which holds far more shots, why put yourself at the disadvantage of having just a few shots?

suggest start with a 410/45lc with a 4.25" or 3.5" barrel. add large rubber grips. use only handgun specific 410 ammo for your wrist's health. add a 3" barrel in your favorite handgun caliber, i.e. either 9mm, 357/38 or 45acp.

bond arms derringers are certainly expensive niche pieces, and probably not advised to be anyone's first handgun. that said, b.a. are stout, dont print, are virtually unbreakable, allow ammo scrounging with easily changed barrels and are unique. this opinion is from a nra lifer who doesn't own an ar/ak rifle, or a 9mm or 45acp semiauto pistol. free choice is wonderful.
