I have a confession to make: I don’t get the purpose of modern big-bore derringers. They’re as heavy or heavier than .380, 9mm, and .40 S&W pocket pistols, are thicker, much slower to load, have more rudimentary sights, and are generally outclassed in every way except for build quality and cool factor.

And maybe that is where Bond Arms fits. They are beautifully made firearms, and will probably last forever.

Just don’t miss when all you have is two shots.
