I'm looking for a Bond Arms derringer. I got everything else covered for now and wanted a nice little gun. Looking at one in 38/357.

Any experiences with these? Whether its in this caliber or any of them. How about models? I'm thinking Texas Defender. Budsgunshop doesnt have the one I want (only Cowboy defender) so I may call and check Gander mountain before I make the drive up there.

So if you happen to know Gander Mountains inventory on Bond Arms (Bond arms website said that GM in Cicero, NY was a distributor) I'd be interesting in hearing.

Thanks.

I have a Bond Arms Ranger. Love it. It is in 45/410. I purchased it from Grabagun.com. Great people and great prices. I have purchased several pistols from them and I have always had great services and prices. The Ranger comes with a cross draw holster which is very nice. You can also buy a lot of different caliber barrels for it. Good luck.

Tonawanda has them in stock, long drive just letting you know. Don't forget, you can order guns online through Gander as well.

Well I got me an LCR instead. Once I find a new job, I will be purchasing a Bond Arms.

Im assuming for each different barrel we have to add to the permit?

i have a texas defender in .45/.410 and love it. recoil/muzzle climb is surprisingly mild for what it is, thus making accuracy more impressive than what i expected (due to the weight and engineering i suppose). the gun pushes straight back into the hand and doesn't fly out of it like my kel tec p3at did the first time i took it to the range years back. fit and finish make it obvious that texans take pride in their work. the availability of so many calibers/combinations through purchasing additional barrels is kinda neat.

i love my lcr with crimson trace laser grips as well. the only thing i somewhat regret is that i got it the first year it came out instead of waiting for the .357 model. regardless, you made a solid choice in terms of practicality. much lighter and more comfortable to carry than the bond, though i highly recomment owning both.

I purchased my last pistol from them. Great experience as well. I ordered online, they already had my ffl on file and he received it in two days.

Thanks. I figured the LCR would be more practical for the first choice, but will definitely get a Bond Arms when money allows.

Also, I would also like the option of 38 or 357. Realistically, I'll be shooting more 38 or 38 +p than 357, but more options the better to me.
