A Great Ranch Hand

As I have previously teased your incredibly kind and knowledgeable staff, I am mad at you for making what must be one of the handiest trail/defense guns ever. For years, I knew of your quality production but could not wrap my mind around needing one of your derringers. Initially, I purchased a used Cowboy Defender, which I thought to just experiment with and then likely sell. Boy, was I fooling myself! What I discovered is, without a doubt, the lightest and best gun for trail, woods walking, and self preservation (two, four or no legged). I am a cattleman and routinely carried a big bore single action when checking the cows or running the fence line. Vermin, varmints and rank bulls are always a possibility and this gun is the handiest. Now, the Bond Arms gets the nod every time I do just about anything. I don't know how it happened but Cowboy Defender sent word to his siblings and now the Century 2000, Snake Slayer IV, Ranger II, and Backup all live under one roof! Of course, then came extra barrels to boot. Your product is so versatile, I now view it as an invaluable necessity. It is the embodiment of exceptional engineering and quality, yet offered in a relatively light weight package. Recoil is very tolerable. If any readers were like me, wondering aloud "Why do I need one?", I can only respond "Don't be slow to action. Buy one!"
It will serve you well and its durable construction will guarantee a heirloom for your subsequent generations. Thank you for making such an exceptional firearm, one that has proven its value over and over again.

First Patriot Range Time

IMG_5872I purchased the Patriot in 410/45 Colt and just shot it for the first time. The guns recoil being very manageable. I used 250 grain 45 colt ammo, Hornady Critical defense in 410 and Federal Triple 000 Buck which had the most kick but still fine for a defensive load. I look forward to more shooting fun ahead. No issues with the gun at all. I'm happy! I will get a thick oval plate for hanging to practice my draw and shooting accuracy.

My Wife & I Each Own One

My wife got into pistol shooting about 5 years ago. Before that she never shot a handgun. She saw a Bond Arms Snake Slayer IV 38/357 caliber and liked the way it felt and how solid made it was so I bought it for her. I liked the gun so much I just recently bought one but in 45/410 which was a knuckle buster for me when shooting defensive loads, so I sold the barrel and bought a 38/357 also which works out nice because our revolvers are the same caliber. Now we enjoy the variety of available loads for that caliber and the derringers not only conceal well they shoot equally as well as our other guns. The fun part is seeing how intimidating this is when other people see us shoot it.

Excellent Made Guns

I have purchased 2 Bond Arms derringers, 38/357 and 45/410 snake slayer. Both derringers fire flawlessly. The 38/357 is truly a pleasure to shoot and surprisingly hardly no recoil. Very accurate at 10 yards with stock barrel, fired American Eagle 158 grain 38 special and some reload bought at a local gun show. 100 rounds and no misfires. This gun is really fun to shoot. The 45 Colt / 410 000 buck is a different story, this is not for the faint of heart. I fired about 20 rounds of 410 000 buck all rounds at 7 to 10 yards, they all hit center of mass destroying the target and my hand. The 45 long colt was not too bad, I fired another 25 rounds and hit center of mass at the same distances. The 45 Colt was equal to about a .357. After completion of range time, the webbing of my hand singled for several hours afterwards, for 2 days my hand was sore. This snake slayer is a mini cannon, impressive none the less. I would highly recommend any Bond Arms derringer, you won't find a finer quality weapon anywhere. Great job to Bond Arms!

The "Funnest"


For me; having six different barrels to choose from at a moments notice opens a whole new way to have shooting fun. These barrels can be changed in about 30 seconds with the supplied Allen wrench. So why not bring all of them to the range? The hard part is carrying all the ammo, ya think?!! I have the .22lr/22 short, .22 magnum, 380 auto, 9 mm, .357/38 and the .45/410 all in various lengths. I use the extended grips on the Snake Slayer IV and the regular length grips on the Texas Defender. The short grip lends itself to the smaller calibers (22, 22mag, 380) while the extended grip is more comfortable with my larger calibers (9mm, 357/38, 45/410).
The trigger(s) took a little getting-use-to. So the next time out, I will remove the trigger guard(s) and see if there is any shooting advantage for me. The different calibers all handle just as I expected, each with it's own size personality.

What's the "funnest"? I'm leaning toward the 45 long colt caliber. Yeah, its loud and kicks. But the more kick, the better, that's just my opinion. The 22 shorts also brought a smile to my face. If you're thinking about joining us Bond Arms derringer owners, don't hesitate. None of them cost too much. Plus, it's possible to change the entire look and versatility in less then a minute.

What A Firearms System!

IMG_0034What A Firearms System!
Well...I now have the Snake Slayer, the Pikes Peak Special, a 45/410 barrel, a 45 Colt barrel, a 45 acp barrel, a 44 Special barrel, and a 357/38 barrel. I also purchased a Faux Ivory Extended Grip and a Silver Star Rosewood Extended Grip, as well as a BATF Holster. And when funds are available I definitely foresee a PR2A in my future with a Backup a possibility also, but after the PT2A! Guess I'm well hooked! I have 26 other hand guns in Semi-Auto, double action revolvers, and several SAs.
I am a retired LEO with 36 years of service, and your firearms are the best made of any! I have been in fire fights in my career as a Deputy Sheriff, and I do not hesitate for a moment to carry any of your finely made firearms as my primary CCW!
Your company's commitment to making quality firearms, and your exemplary customer service is something just not seen in the firearms industry! While I normally don't put decals on my personal vehicle, your Think Twice decal has a place of honor on my rear window! I even thought up a new Sig for my emails due to my favorite barrel: "A 44 and an 88 both make music, though of a different kind."
For those not getting this reference...the 88 refers to a piano!

Excellent Personal Defense Choice


I've run ballistic comparisons with a Bond Arms Defender equipped a 2.5" barrel against several other (what I thought would be) more formidable weapons. I've attached the results of the TKO summary. Having hunted big game (including a 1600 lb Bison I took with a single shot) I respect the TKO (Taylor Knock Out value) of my gun/round choice.

I was confident the Ruger GP100 357 Magnum with its 6" barrel chambered with high performance Double Tap ammo would do well. What surprised me was the Bond Defender beat it ... by a great deal.

The chart is a summary report of the best performance for each gun over several round choices. What is clear to me is that a Bond Arms Defender chambered with a Buffalo Bore (Standard Pressure) 45 Colt 255 grain round is a very effective combination.

The Best Things Come In Small Packages!

At sixty-nine years of age I'm quite a newcomer to shooting guns I but have fallen head over heels in love with it. I'm not much of a handgun efficiano but I can't deny the feelings I'm having with my new 'Papa Bear' .45/.410 pistol. First time I've actually felt 'giddy' about something since I got a car when I was sixteen in 1964. I can't stay away from the shooting range! I'm very much surprised at the accuracy this gun exhibits, even at 20 yards. I went to the gun store to look at a DoubleTap .45 derringer which they didn't carry so when the sales person handed me the Bond Arms gun, I knew the moment I held it in my hand, I had to own it. It defies my ability to verbally describe what a WELL MADE, yet simple work of engineering it is. It's a bit oxymoronic to describe...like crossing a Caterpillar D8 bulldozer with a Ferrari F12...hard to explain! You have to see one in person...hold it in your hand...and shoot it...and try to stop. (Bet you can't shoot just once)! I've ordered the .357 mag/.38 Special and the .22 Long Rifle barrels which according to my UPS notice, should be arriving tomorrow. It's been too many years since I've had those 'Night Before Christmas' feelings, but I sure do tonight! The folks I talked with on the phone at Bond when I ordered my barrels made it seem liking I was making a call to home. In case you haven't detected it yet, I am more than ecstatic about my new Bond Arms experiences.

Simple Confidence

So my wife bought me the Snake Slayer for my birthday in November after hearing about the "Bond Arms" on a radio show. WOW!!! This is my favorite gun I own. I know it will do the job in any situation from hiking, concealed carry/personal protection, etc. the quality and versatility is unmatched. I have shot competition with the military growing up on a .45 1911. BUT I got to say this little gun is great and have nothing but confidence in it due to the obvious quality! I'm without a doubt going to but another one here soon. My wife wants one also. We are "regular" folks, what I mean is I'm not a super gun know it all, and what is great is with a Bond Arm one has confidence in knowing it will work well, is safe (love the safety feature button) and most of all supplies simple confidence to the novice and expert no matter where you fall in that spectrum. THANK YOU!

Perfect Backup

I still tote the orginal series Snake Slayer (with recent hammer spring upgrade) and it is the ideal backup in my field of work which is industrial security. In my line of work over penetration is a major issue and being loaded with triple OO buck removes that concern. I have been packing this model for five years now and after a recent field test; the results are exactly what was expected, take down the bad guy and and NOT over penetrate. Thank you for a great model. Thanks again for a great reliable handgun!
