Test fired my new Bond Backup in .45ACP. Fired 230 gr FC factory ball at a 25 yd target. 20 shots without a glove. Stout but not painful. Also tried some 200 gr practice ammo with a little less recoil. Was able to keep almost all the shots on paper. I would call that reasonable accuracy from a 2.5″ barrel. Shooting from lower barrel results in lower felt recoil (for me).
Pistol is well made. Solid, reliable feel. I would be willing to use it as a backup gun. I like the non glare finish too.
I just received the BAD Driving holster. Very well made and a practical, adjustable holster for carrying in an auto. Purchased received another barrel .38/.357 3.5″ and ordered a 2.5″ 9mm too with a backup holster. Will probably buy another Bond Arms derringer for my wife.
