    I was at a gun show yesterday and saw several of them next to Tauruses and Charter Arms guns. It was hard to tell them apart from those guns, but they definitely weren't Smiths. Price was about the same as Taurus & Charter.

    They're nowhere close to the quality of Taurus. I can't speak for Charter Arms, never having shot one. I've had two Taurus revolvers, and both were rock solid shooters, and unbreakable.

    On a side note, I did return the gun to Cobra, and got it back in 2 weeks. I don't know if they fixed whatever the issue was, or if there were any improvements; I used it as a partial trade in for a Mossberg 800.

    Their biggest sellers are the Derringers. I've messed with several, they start out life as pieces of crap, they go through life as pieces of crap and they all end up the same...as pieces.

    Why people would bet their lives on cheap pieces of crap is beyond me. Usually its because they are broke, uneducated about guns, uneducated, dumb and or living off of the goverment mammary gland or one of the ignerint unwashed masses that put the current administration in office.

    No discerning,gun savy individual would own a Cobra unless it was truly a mistake. If they are smart, they learn from that mistake and never buy another.
    Ok so I understand your discontent with the government and with the fire arms Manufacture Cobra but going on a rant and rave about the owners of their fire arms is ridiculous. I to have a disgust for the governmental policies about weapons and I the other B.S. that they are forcing onto us as US citizens but understand something. I don't live off the government and I sure as hell didn't vote for the officials that are in office now but I do own 2 Cobra Fire Arms and all they are for are last resort weapons. I own a multitude of S&W weapons and Remington's and Mossberg's. All that was asked was a review of the weapon not your personal opinion of the owners of the weapons. But I'm glad that as a step-child of the US Army, that I was fighting for your right to be an outstanding and enlightened person. Oh and have a nice day.

    I have owned several Davis/Cobra derringers, both did as advertised, they went bang every time you squeezed the trigger. I would not compare them to a Jennings/Bryco, Lorcin, Rohm or the other cheap throw away type guns because IMO they are better made, meet design function at a cheap cost, reliable and strong competition to Bond Arms.

    When I buy a product I buy the best product to meet my needs at a cost that I can afford. When it comes to SD guns, looks and finish are secondary to reliability and accuracy. If looks and finish mattered I surely would not buy an auto loader with a plastic receiver/frame.....

    OK, so I understand your discontent with HotGuns post outlining his views on Cobra products but going on a rant and rave about individuals who post their honest (and educated I might add) opinions in a forum setting about the relative suitability of such firearms is ridiculous. It's a forum after all. All reasonable opinion is entertained. And sorry but, yes in some cases, the firearms chosen say much about one's firearms knowledge and discernment. That's just the way it is.

    No person was singled out for ridicule in the post. Only a general statement was made and it arguably has some validity. And, while Defensive Carry Forum appreciates veterans more than most firearms forums going, waiving that flag as an excuse to attack a fellow forum member doesn't cut it.

    Not a good first post or an auspicious beginning.

    Since this thread took a bad turn after being resurrected we'll close it so no one else dredges up old posts to pointlessly attack.
