Texas Defender
I am few in words on making comments and recommendations. But I will truly say that the Texas Defender is an awesome and a great reliable small handgun. Conceal & carry and feel safe (CCFS). I think this says it all.

An Amazing Gun
Just got a Texas Defender with 45LC/410 and 45ACP barrels and it is as good as all the reviews I have read. Having shot hand punishing competitors derringers, I am very pleased with how comfortable and accurate it is. I have shot it with Hornady 410 Triple Defense and 45 Colt 185 gr Critical Defense and assorted 45ACP rounds at 5 and 7 yards with excellent results. I have also ordered a 9mm barrel and considering a 357 as well. For storage, the Plano small frame pistol case (142100) fits the 3" barrel like it was made for the gun. For carry, I have ordered HolsterPro Model 3 pocket and Ross Leather cross-draw holsters.
I took it to a public range and people literally lined up wanting to see it. Some gun owners one or more guns they want to buried with and my Texas Defender is now on my keep it till I die list. For an accurate, dependable, rock solid and beautiful looking gun every firearm owner should have one of these.

The Only Gun I Truly Need
Controversy over firearms is at a peak, but even the most ardent anti-gun advocate I know (my 65 year old mother) can be made to understand why my Texas Defender is the only thing I would never part with. It's all the protection I could ever ask for, it's incredibly safe to handle and conceal carry, and even Stevie Wonder could stop a break in or personal assault dead in its tracks from 10 yards with just the first round of .410 PDX defender.
I can live without my AR's. I can even live without my FN Five-seveN. They are just range toys. But my Texas Defender can't be denied as the most reasonable, justifiable, sane all-purpose platform for self-defense in this politically charged era.

Bond Arms Texas Defender
Doug is my name, but this review is not about me or my opinions it's about a very high quality very safe tool that I will count on if my life is ever in danger. The Texas Defender I have recently purchased fits my hand very well 410/45 colt will do the job with a 3 inch barrel don't be afraid of reaching out beyond your normal personal defense yardage. I've only ran this gun 5, 7 ,9 yards with 410 birdshot and all hits were on paper. Believe me when I tell you I'm not a professional shooter, but the 45 colt is hitting consistently from 30 yards. This is from a three inch barrel, so if anyone is worried about accuracy as I was, you can rest easy with a little practice aiming an over/under can be done. That being said, the craftsmanship of BOND ARMS derringers is just unmatched. This little, very concealable, powerful, and beautiful derringer feels like a hand tank! Yes, you only have two shots at your disposal, but if you do your research most up close defense situations are less than two shots. Besides, I don't think anyone wants to be hit by two defensive 410 shotgun blasts.
