I had never owned a “good gun” other than a 22 cal. Ruger single six made in 1957. My guns are wall hanger shotguns and a collection of black powder cap and ball revolvers which are only replicas of the guns used in the civil war. A few years ago (yes years), I started looking for the right gun for me. Since I’m no “marksman”, I felt that I needed a 410 for protection. I had looked at the large bulky revolvers and just couldn’t bring myself to get one. I woke up one night in December of 2017 about 2:00 and turned on the TV. I just caught the last part of a Bond Arms commercial and thought this is the gun for me. Before this time, I had never heard of Bond Arms. After spending many hours on the internet and looking at them at a gun store, I knew which gun I wanted. Since this store was in another sate, I had to get another gun shop to order the gun. After 2 weeks, I got my Texan with the 6″ 45/410 bbl. A week later, I got my holster from Bond Arms. The 1st time I took it to the range, a man I knew was there with his new 9mm semi auto with the laser sight. When he looked at my derringer, he said it looked like something John Wayne would hang on the wall. I told him with the 410, who needs a laser. The second time I went to the range, another guy asked me what I was going to shoot. When I told him “a derringer”, he laughed out loud. After sending some 3″ 410s and some 45 long colts down the range and hitting targets at 40 feet away, (remember I have never shot a gun that much) he came over and wanted see my gun. He was very impressed. I was even more impressed and just like this gun so much. Maybe I’m a brand new gun nut, but I just like holding the gun while watching TV. Thanks again Bond Arms. P.S. While talking about some things including my holster, I found the people that I talked to at Bond Arms just great.
