On a recent hunting trip to Colo I took along my new Bond Arms Papa Bear model handgun. It is in 45 Colt cal. I was concerned that it would have a tremendous recoil. However, when I fired the Papa, it was surprisingly very controllable. I let another hunter shoot it and he loved it. In fact he when to a local ranch supply business in town and wanted to buy one. Everyone who handled the gun was surprised at the quality of construction.
Living in Cali I couldn’t purchase the Snake Slayer model so I am now looking for some 45 cal shot cartridges.
