.22 LR BUG. Love it.

Which model and do you own it as a BUG or as a novelty?
I used to own one that was chambered for .45LC or .410 shot shells. It was as a novelty more than anything else. It was a hand full to shoot, but fun. I ended up trading it for something else I wanted more, but I kinda' wish I still had it...
They do make one with a lightweight frame, if u get one that's the one to get. Them and the bond arm ones are just too heavy for what they r. I believe it's alloy metal.

The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
.44 Mag and it's definitely a novelty. I still have it but every type of bullet keyholes at 5 yds, doesn't matter it it's .44 mag, special or .44 colt, light, heavy or in-between.
It seems like there's a black hole of info when it comes to American derringer. I've been looking it up and there's very little information about it. I like the idea of a simple little derringer for dog walking/patio cigar smoking, but I don't want a 23 ounce Bond arms dragging me down. I also don't want a super cheap, unreliable derringer. If bond made a lightweight model, I think they would be a market for it. Something like a 12-15 ounce, thin derringer in 38 or 9 mm.
