What People Are Saying
when i first seen the cowboy defender in the local gun shop in kingsport TN i fell in love with it and knew that the cowboy defender would be my backup weapon just as fast as i could get it paid for. came straight home and set me up a target, which was a plastic gallon milk jug full of water. 15 yards away i shot and the jug blew up and water flew everywhere. the power, the force i like. it is now my back up weapon carried along with my colt 45 1911. the strange thing is that i don’t no now which weapon is the back up and which one is the primary weapon. because the cowboy could most definitely be the primary weapon. thanks for a great weapon
- small but what a kick
I purchased My Texas Defender in .410/45 w/2 1/2″ barrel about a month ago from Williams Gun Sight in Davison, Michigan, as a Back-Up to My full size 9mm. I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship and materials used in manufacture. Have only shot .410 shells in it and dont anticipate needing any other ammo. I truly like it and am very happy that I purchased it. Very easy to conceal. Anyone wanna buy My .22 LR Auto? This Bond Arms Derringer is so much better in all respects.
- Very Impressed
I have had your Texas Ranger in 45LC/410 3″ since about 1998 (now I have 6 additional barrels for it) and have nothing but the finest praise for it. I retired as a Police Sergeant in 2008 after 40 yrs on the job and can say that this derringer is with me all the time.
Whether I am in the field hunting or fishing,I always carry the Texas Defender in the 45 LC/410 configuration.
Anytime I had to deal with the customer service folks at Bond Arms,the service has been absolutely the best.
Over the years,several of my friends have also purchased Bond Arms Derringers after checking mine out and firing it at the range.
Right now,I am trying to decide if I should purchase the new “Back Up” that has been brought out or if to just purchase a 2 1/2″ barrel in 45LC.
Superb firearm and an excellent company. Thank you for being USA made!!!!
- Praise Long Overdue!!!!
very happy with such a well made firearm, i have the snake slayer 4 and i love it!
- very pleased
I loved this piece since I first saw it, I have purchased the 38/357 barrel for it and have had the 410/45 barrel engraved in a Celtic knot. I have a decent sized handgun collection and this is my favorite. It always gets attention at the range when I take it. Quantity is unbelievable!

It was so refreshing to do business with a Company that still has integrity, and stands by their word. I recently had the privilege of of dealing with Joe and Charlie in Customer Service at Bond Arms. This company not only produces the finest firearms, but they stand behind their product 100% and that’s a rarity in today’s business world. Thank you Bond Arms Inc.

Bought my first “pocket cannon” a few years back while living in Texas it’s a Snake Slayer. When I wanted something a bit more compact I got the mini. I like having the option to change out the barrels to try different rounds. I’m a collector of sorts but I never leave the house without one.
- I’m into Bond Arms
I just bought my wife the Texas Defender for Valentines day and gave it to her early because I am going out of town. It doesn’t get any better in such a small package!!!! I have a Taurus judge magnum and love these two calibers together. I am super impressed on the accuracy of this lil gun and will soon be getting one to carry myself to keep on my person at all times!!! Thanks Bond Arms for such a great gun!
- Best Valentines Present Ever!!!
I will start off by saying that I am disabled. I am only able to shoot with one hand. I was taught to shoot in this manner as a young lad. I recently purchased a 31/2″ .45-.410 barrel. I fired the 21/2″ .410 rounds out of it today. I was most impressed by it’s accuracy, and ease of control. At 10 yards, the group was tight and in center of mass. The shot was not spread out as I expected, but rather in a straight line top to bottom. Even more impressive was the wound channel the wad made on the target. I would not expect the wad to have much if any effect on a live target, but on paper it made a very ragged hole.
I compared the holes made by the .410 to my .32 magnum. Very little difference in size. The .410 was perhaps a 10th larger. This is a firearm and round that I am comfortable in carrying, and feel as though I am under gunned. To quote Mr. T, ” I pity the poor fool that comes up against it!”
- One handed one pistol
I am impressed by the craftsmanship! I love this gun. It has been exactly what I thought it would be.
- I love this gun.
Bought Bond Arms Snake Slayer and loved it . Then Bond Arms out did themselves with mini .45 . But I went step further and it is not so mini no more . Bought .45 LC / .410 3.5″ barrel and extended black rubber grips made it the perfect HAND CANNON for me . Thanks again for another quality gun from you . Love the anodized blacked out look of frame , galvanized look of trigger guard , trigger , and hammer . THANX BOND ARMS
- Number 2
i opened the box and my eyes popped out….wow what a quality piece….cannot wait to shoot this bad boy!!
I like the idea of a small but powerful self defense weapon, checked your website, very informative. Bond arms products look well made and solid compared to other derringers, made my purchase and looks like everything you say it is, can’t wait to do some field testing. Thanks .Stan

The Ranger II shoots good and on target. This was my first time ever using a derringer; hit target kill zone at 16 yards w/45LC & 410 Win PDX1 Defender 3” 750 Velocity what a kick. Thought you might like this; gun’s name is Howitzer Jumbo Jet. Based on the serial number 105747 = 105mm Howitzer and 747 Jumbo Jets.-Bert
- gun’s name is Howitzer Jumbo Jet
I love my ranger 2. I love the quality put out by the people of the Bond Arms Company. I am going to buy one for my son. Thank you for the best derringer ever made. PS tell the bond girl Amy Graves I think shes smoking Hot. GOD BLESS AMERICA Your friend Timothy
- I love my ranger 2
I like the thought that went into making the pistol and that it’s made of quality materials. Your YouTube Videos were the deciding factor in buying this pistol. When the owner takes the time to make a video and talks about all the features it means a lot to me.

I had not seen an advertisement on Bond Arms. My cousin near Weatherford, Texas, showed me his Defender and the quality of workmanship encouraged me to buy your gun. The store only had one gun, the USA Defender with 45/410 barrel. I would be interested in any recommendations for barrels, etc.
Thank you. Gary
- the quality of workmanship encouraged me to buy your gun
I purchased the weapon on December 14, 2013. I am sorry for the late notice but I could not find the card to send in, luckily when I was on your website I saw that I did not need the gun. So far the weapon always places a smile on my face; I have a lot of experience with firearms as I am a recently retired US Ranger but I wish I would have had this weapon in my kit.—Miguel C.
- the weapon always places a smile on my face
Gordon and Company,
I read all the reviews online, but nothing written can explain the feeling you get when you hold one in your hand. I read review on all my purchases; I have never seen so many positive testimonies on any product I have ever purchased. Your website says it all.—Charles H.
- nothing written can explain the feeling
I liked your Snake Slayer the first time that I had ever seen the gun and being a Journeyman Tool and Diemaker and Mechanical engineer and a lot of experience on NC & CNC machining an Awesome solid Stainless steel billet and Made in US of A sold me TY Terry Heatherly—Terry D.
- I liked your Snake Slayer the first time that I had ever seen it
I picked up my weapon this afternoon. Haven’t had an opportunity to fire it yet but my trigger finger is having fits!! I am impressed by the craftsmanship! This pistol is built like a Sherman tank! Feels kinda like an extension of my hand. My chosen caliber is .357 Mag/.38 Special. In the near future I will most likely get a .410/.45LC barrel.
Thanks for a great concealed carry weapon!—Rod K
- Thanks for a great concealed carry weapon!
Perfect for what I was looking for. It shoots very well – comfortable and accurate. Even at 15 yards I could hit an 18” x 30” target.—Gary B.
- Perfect for what I was looking for
Amazing Quality, simple Design, great styling, superb ergonomics and kind/courteous customer service! I like most guns. This is one of my favorites. I own more than one, and have multiple barrels. Both my parents own one as well. Thank You
- Amazing Quality, simple Design, great styling
This is a beautifully made gun. I’ve been interested in purchasing a Bond Derringer since I first saw a magazine ad over ten years ago. I finally decided to take the plunge when I saw a brand new Texas Defender in 45/410 at my local shop at a great price. I haven’t had a chance to shoot it yet, but so far I love the way it feels, handles and carries. I also love the modular aspect of the gun, I intend to purchase several different barrel configurations and different grips to play around with and with two young kids the safety features of this gun are VERY important to me. The bottom line is that no one else makes a gun that carries such effective ammo AND can fit in your pocket.—Jared P
- This is a beautifully made gun.
Very, Very nice Firearm. Truly built like a Tank, and needs to be. Already purchasing accessories, grips and holster, and looking forward to getting a couple of different Caliber Barrels, for more utility. Proud to make a Bond Arms Snake Slayer, Made in America, mine.—James L.
- Very very nice firearm
