Pocket Skeet Shooter
This is by far one of my favorite handguns, and the craftsmanship also makes it a nice show piece! I have the holster as well.

Best derringer I've ever owned
I'm a retired Marine and LEO here in Texas. I'm also an old man and I'm disabled. I'm sometimes in a wheelchair and sometimes on a walker/cane. So I needed something for self-protection that could be managed with one, had stopping power, and didn't need a lot of extra equipment. Wallah! The Bond Arms Texas Defender. Bought mine at Lindale's Guitars & Guns. It's always in my pocket. I feel very safe and confident with it. I call it the "Don't mess with me" gun. No more worrying about getting in/out of my truck and getting mugged.  Thank you Bond Arms. Oh & of course, it shoots mighty fine! I recommend learning how to set up the hammers so you know which barrel will fire first & make the lower barrel fire first. Trust me on this!

Bond Arms Texas Defender
Doug is my name, but this review is not about me or my opinions it's about a very high quality very safe tool that I will count on if my life is ever in danger. The Texas Defender I have recently purchased fits my hand very well 410/45 colt will do the job with a 3 inch barrel don't be afraid of reaching out beyond your normal personal defense yardage. I've only ran this gun 5, 7 ,9 yards with 410 birdshot and all hits were on paper. Believe me when I tell you I'm not a professional shooter, but the 45 colt is hitting consistently from 30 yards. This is from a three inch barrel, so if anyone is worried about accuracy as I was, you can rest easy with a little practice aiming an over/under can be done. That being said, the craftsmanship of BOND ARMS derringers is just unmatched. This little, very concealable, powerful, and beautiful derringer feels like a hand tank! Yes, you only have two shots at your disposal, but if you do your research most up close defense situations are less than two shots. Besides, I don't think anyone wants to be hit by two defensive 410 shotgun blasts.

The Only Gun I Truly Need
Controversy over firearms is at a peak, but even the most ardent anti-gun advocate I know (my 65 year old mother) can be made to understand why my Texas Defender is the only thing I would never part with. It's all the protection I could ever ask for, it's incredibly safe to handle and conceal carry, and even Stevie Wonder could stop a break in or personal assault dead in its tracks from 10 yards with just the first round of .410 PDX defender.
I can live without my AR's. I can even live without my FN Five-seveN. They are just range toys. But my Texas Defender can't be denied as the most reasonable, justifiable, sane all-purpose platform for self-defense in this politically charged era.
