The Bond Firearms Mini-Derringer in .45 Long Colt is the perfect derringer produced for self-defense. It is light, handy, and above all, safe. At 3 yards, the gun prints right on with W-W 255 grain LRN ammunition, and Federal 225 grain LHP cartridges. Thanks to the comfortable, relatively wide grip, there is little recoil; the gun simply bounces. It is easy to fire a second shot. The gun is very sturdy and there is no play when the barrels are locked in place. Also, with the shorter 2 1/2″ barrels and Cowboy Defender-style frame, the Mini is light enough to make the gun very pocketable.
