    I'd like to hear your opinion. (up to a point.)

    I have a Bond Snakeslayer IV. in .410/45 LC.

    No, this isn't the opinion part.

    I'm thinking of getting another barrel for it. (They are interchangeable, you know.)

    Should I get a .22 magnum? or a 9mm.? (Yep, that's the choice. for me)

    This would be for plinking and target fun.

    I don't have anything in .22 magnum, but I don't know anything about it either.
    I have several 9mm.'s so ammo is available.
    Price is the same for both barrels.

    22 mag. If it's for plinking 22 mag is cheaper then 9mm.

    Bond Snakeslayer newb here, but do they have a barrell for 22 lr? Even cheaper than mag and probably easier to find. But I do agree with Rollo, if just plinking go with 22 mag.

    Looks unanimous!

    Bond Snakeslayer newb here,
    Bond Arms makes a line of very high quality firearms that look like derringers,
    but are much larger. The barrels can be changed with one hex screw. I thought it would make the almost perfect bedside gun so I got one.
    Shooting .410 buckshot is, to say the least, snappy. The trigger guard comes back and smacks your second finger...hard.
    Blam, "ouch"!.......think, "I should have worn gloves. thick leather gloves."

    But I love the gun as a niche' firearm, so I want to keep and use it.

    .22 Mag is only slightly less than 9mm. Although I would probably say go for the .22 mag as well. :0

    +1 on the .22 mag. Those are sweet little guns.

    I just got a Sharps 4 barrel pepper box which shoots .22 shorts from my mother-in-laws estate when she passed away recently. I can't wait to shoot it.

    Oh, man.........sorry for your loss, but at least the firearm will go to a good collector.

    .22 mag. They're relatively cheap, can do as as much/more (internal) damage than a 9mm by bouncing around. And, well, what could be better than throwing 'magnum' after the caliber? '.357MAGNUM', '.44MAGNUM'... See where I'm going with this?

    For plinking fun I’ll add another vote for the 22MAG.

    if you re-loaded; even a $70 single stage-- id say 32 S&W long because it is the most accurate out of that length bbl
    chipmonks would fear you...

    but 22 mag vs 9mm---another vote for the 22 mag and the monks will dance about your shadow with mirth.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    Of course, both of the guns were Glocks, but I fully realize there are other gun makers out there. :-)
