I am almost 70 years old and it’s a shame we live in a country where we have to be on the defense every waking hour. To many times in my later years I have felt insecure with my surroundings so I purchased two Bond Arms for myself and wife. Being ex-military and knowing the value of training and practice we have fired the Bond Arms 357/38 and 45/410 and found them to be a very good defensive firearm. Since the price of ammo and recoil was a little to much for my wife I purchased the 22LR barrel and the 22 MAG to practice. They allowed us to get to know the guns very well. We both got self defense permits and carry them when we feel it’s necessary. The Bond Arms guns are made very strong with just the right amount of safety features.
