If you can buy it for less than $300, it's a gift.
Buy it, try it, call me if you don't like it, and I'll give you your money back- I'd LOVE to have another one!
That's not an American Derringer. That is a Bond Arms Derringer, also made in Texas. They are much better, IMO, than American derringers.
The cammed lock-up lever is stronger & easier to use. They have a trigger guard that makes it easier to control. Rebounding hammer makes them safe to carry, too.
I had one for several years, in .45 Colt/.410. It was a Hoot to Shoot!
Yeah, it had some recoil but not too much to manage. My DSW could handle mine just fine. Hit the Ten at 5 yrds. every time.The Texas Defender or the
Snake Slayer are great. And you can buy extra barrels to switch out in other
calibers. I had one in .45acp, too
I dropped mine in my back pocket when I'd go out at night.

My dear Son talked me out of mine when I had a weak moment. He wanted it to go with his Taurus Judge.
I'll get another one one of these days soon.
