As a concealed carry gun I have had a Beretta 90-2 and a nano. But changing jobs where my boss is watching and having to wear a uniform that may reveal one of my silent partners was an issue as he says no carry. I work with police, state patrol and sheriffs’s departments in my area dealing with traffic… sometimes its nothing more than a tire change… sometimes I have to deal with accidents and the uninsured drug dealers or even violent people before the officers do…. while in past years of towing and such I have pulled my 90-2 out because things got ugly, not being able to keep it in uniform I was worried but as I looked to remain able to return home nightly being without fire power is no option.
I found the bond arms Texas defender 410/45. Kinda wish it had come with a holster some guys at other gun shops got… 45 is nice but I like 000 buck because around 20 feet I get a chest size group… 3 projectiles 1 shot kinda helps keep odds in my favor. Most of my encounters are arms length to other people at some point so 20 feet is good to know it will do but not optimal. I love the fact I can carry it and 4 extra shots and stand toe to toe with my boss and him have no clue its there.
The law enforcement officers in my area have asked about it as some have seen me on the road for a while and knew I carried but shocked not to see even a holster, I just drop in my pocket and go… I have had some even ask when we are going shooting and where they can find it.
I’d like to say to all members at bond arms, you make a great product, and I look forward to some “upgrades and extras” as some time progresses. I am glad that when I tow a drug dealers car and his friends show up or I go “into the ghetto wastelands” its there and ready, for me or even an officer if neccessary with the current situations.
