    Anyone have a picture of a Bond Arms Cowboy/Texas Defender derringer next to a snubbie like the S&W 642?

    Sorry, no pics, but I did do a little comparing of my own. I was looking at a Bond to pocket carry when a holster was not a good choice. What I found was that the Bond was pretty big and really heavy. It weighs the same as my 325PD which holds 3 times as much ammo. I decided to stay away from it.

    Here you go with a couple J Frames. I didn't bother to clean up the pictures.

    Awesome, so the Bond Arms is not that much smaller than a Snubbie. For some reason I had it stuck in my head that it was a lot smaller. I wanted get a new carry gun for hiking, and I was torn between a Bond Arms or a snubbie, but no one has a Bond Arms around here for comparison.

    Thanks again M2

    In the summer I load the J Frame I carry around the place with one or two shot shells for Rattlesnakes and Copperheads.

    Bond arm guns are masterpieces. But I just cant justify the price when I compare to other firearms in the same price range.

    Mine is 45ACP and 38/357. Built like a tank and more accurate than you might think.

    I carried it around town for a while but I stopped because it comes down to not having confidence it only two shots getting the job done.


    Now, because of it being stainless it's doing duty as a bathroom gun.:)
