Bond Arms

I was at the LGS the other day and noticed a bunch of large Derringers in the case, and noted that a.) they looked really awesome and b.) the brand was Bond Arms. Went home and googled it. Wow, cool!

I'm working on moving my home office out to the garage, and the design theme is 19th century, so a "home defense" weapon like would fit right in with the decor. I'm thinking of one chambered for 45 Colt/.410 Shot Shell. I'd have my EDC with me, but something like this would be a hoot.

Anyone have one? Are they easy to shoot?

Pal who is into Cowboy Action Shooting has one he uses for some of the events.
Solid well made gun. Not my cup of tea to shoot.

Got the Snake Slayer IV in 410/45LC. Great Lil Hand Cannon. Not very good for target or Everyday shooting. But will do more than the job up close and personal. I got it JUST BECAUSE I WANTED IT. Recoil is not as bad as I expected. But if ya ain't use to a pistol that kicks. It can be a shocker. All shot spreads out fast. 00 and 000 buck pretty good. PDX1 shells great too. .45 LC oh yeah also. But mine only has a 4 1/4 inch barrel. 1 1/4 inch of it is rifled for the .45 LC. I love it for what it's designed for. Putting big messy holes in something up real close. Get it you will not be disappointed.

John: Ive got this same pistola in a 3 1/2 inch barrel. Pitbull hit it pretty well on the nose. Pretty hard kicker. It made me order an xl set of grips to calm it down a bit. I've shot the old time 8.5 grain unique load with the 255 grain lead bullet also. Its a hard kicker with it too. I found mine used but not abused from a Cowboy Action Shooter. Extra barrels in other calibers are reasonably priced from Bond Arms. I like 'em. They are a great thing.

Hope this helps,
leroy

I have two of them. One is chambered for the 2.5 inch 410 and the other is for the 3" 410. Both will also shoot 45 Colt. They are very well made and shoot OK for what they are designed for. The triggers are somewhat heavy and they rock a bit when you fire them. Still, I like 'em.
