Everything You Need in a BUG (backup gun)
The Backup: my forth Bond Arms purchase. It came with two extra barrels a 2.5” .22lr and a 3” .357 Mag/.38 Spl, both in the matching Matte finish. Although I already have these barrels in the stainless finish, it’s nice to have a matching set.

Dream Come True
As a little girl, I was so in love with the small guns the old cowgirls used to carry in their garter. It was the perfect combination; a lady could still look like a lady, but be well protected as well. My boyfriend bought me my first Bond Arms Backup. It was exactly what I’d always wanted. The concealment a lady needs, without the bulge in her clothing. (He bought me the tactical bra holster as well.) Everyone said someone as small as me couldn’t handle a .45 Derringer, but I proved them wrong!!! Great fun, not too much kick, reliable, safe, and by far my favorite one to carry (no purse necessary).

A Very Happy Customer
After careful consideration, I chose a Bond Arms Backup as my secondary weapon on duty. As a police officer, you have to be careful what you carry concealed on the job. The weapon has to be small, safe (not likely to fall out or go off when running or fighting), and reliable. I picked Bond Arms for two reasons: first the weapon could be chambered for any pistol round, thus matching the caliber of my duty weapon (9mm Glock 17 Gen4), and second it had a manual safety (so it is less likely to go off in my pocket). I got my Backup and was immediately impressed by the craftsmanship. I took it out and put some rounds through it. I was always told (and experienced) that you could not hit "the broadside of a barn" (my grandfather's quote) with a derringer. Not so with this pistol. With the true blade front sight and rear sight, I got as good a sight picture as I would with a revolver. At 7 yards it was dead on. Just what I wanted.
I showed it off to my fellow officers. They are quite impressed and jealous. The fact it uses the same ammo we carry is a great comfort; if my main weapon malfunctions or someone takes my duty pistol from me, I have 34 extra rounds on me for my Bond Arms Backup. It fits nicely in my pocket, and no one notices it. Great, great job Bond Arms! Highly recommended as a backup gun for any officers by a 16 year serving Indiana police sergeant.
