I bought a Bond Arms Texas Defender.410/.45acp derringer from a friend of mine and it quickly became my favorite carry piece. I keep 000 in it for most trips, but I also bought some flechette loads, and was impressed with the damage they do. The 3” barrel makes it ultra-compact so it fits in a vest pocket.
It makes a statement when you present it, and leaves an impression on anybody who sees its devastation.
It has opened up a whole new world, as .410 rounds come in such a variety.
I might buy a longer barrel in 9mm, but for now, this is just fine!
