    Default Bond Arms Snake Slayer IV .45 Colt / 410

    Just bought one of these, Bond Arms Snake Slayer IV .45 Colt / 410 stainless 4.25” barrel. I was looking at the Texas Defender 3” in 9mm last night. Wanted something different to use all the 9mm ammo I bought for another gun that didn’t work out. Then saw a special Bond Arms was running, free 3” barrel of your choice, free rubber grips and free T-shirt if purchased by 5/31/2019. See add and link below. Figured I could use the 4.25” .45 colt barrel for cowboy shooting and have them send me a 9mm barrel so I could switch out to the 3” 9mm for a boot gun.

    Don’t know if any of you guys have owned one of these but they appear to be built like a tank. Just thought it’d be something different.

    I had a buddy get a boot gun in that caliber, for snakes. It worked out well. The snake bit him in the boot, and broke a fang on the gun.

    Seriously, 530$ for a derringer? Bond makes a fine gun, but there is so much better stuff out there in that price range.

    OTOH, 9mm does shoot fairly respectably out of a derringer.

    they are definately unique and fill a niche....
    my only encounter with bond was not positive as the trigger location/angle is wrong for me.....though i would imagine if i ever bought one i could train and become accustomed to the gun.

    they are well built and definately a crowd pleaser.....would not mind owning one.

    if i had to shoot 9mm it would be thru a ruger blackhawk convertable 357/9mm.......those are fun!

    The beautiful thing about this one is for $130 per barrel, I can shoot whatever I want from .22lr to 410 - 000 buck from the same gun. Barrels range from 2”-6”. Makes for a pretty deadly backup gun or carry in situations where the boot or the pocket is the only place you can carry. The 6” barrel option, that little derringer could pack a serious punch. I got the one with the extended grip so I can try some harder hitting stuff. With the 4” barrel, you can pack .45ACP or .357 magnum in a gun the size of a .380 sub compact. Only 2 rds but so many options... and of course, there is the cool factor... I just hope it’s all I expect it to be because you are right, price is steep, $567.31 out the door.

    Yeah, I’ve got the .45 Colt/.45 ACP Blackhawk convertible. It is fun. As for the trigger, they redesigned it so it’s a more natural trigger pull. The original trigger was a down and back movement. Now it’s straight back as it should be. Also put a bigger thumb pad on the hammer.

    careful........i fell into that trap of a single frame and multiple barrels with the T/C Contender........and i soon had a suitcase of barrels and a spare frame "just in case".

    the argument was i was saving money.........at least i told myself that......

    I’m thinking more along the lines of me carrying vs the wife carrying. 6” in the boot would be fine as the boot upper is 11” but wouldn’t fit in your pocket well as a 4” or 2.5”. Not really saving money as much a versatile for the use case. Wife couldn’t probably handle a .410 or a 10mm but I could. I also like being able to shoot whatever ammo is on sale.
