My buddy has a nice little 2 shot derringer that he is willing to sell me for 75.00. It is in great shape and comes with a holster. Is this a good price as I know nothing about these guns just that it shoots nice and would be fun to own.

Let me know what you think?

Id buy it. If you dont like it you could probably get about as much as you have into it by trading it in on another gun.

What brand and caliber. It's hard, but not impossible to get hurt for $75. There are some out there that $25 is too much.

Sounds like a great BUG to me. I'd just make sure first that the lockup is tight and you should be good on a Derringer.

Ok so here is a picture of it. I really like this thing and it cleaned up real good. It has some marks from being holstered but other than that it's in great shape. What is a good holster for these things? I am assuming a nice little pocket type do any of you carry these around as a bug. Anyway I think it is well worth 75.00 very well made it is made in Germany and it says "Frontier Model Derringer" on the barrell(s).:35:

I paid $325 for the American Derringer that I had in .357 mag chambering. I ended up selling it for $125 because nobody wanted it due to the caliber. It was reasonable w/ 38's, but violent with magnum rounds....I liked shooting it, (Older 125 gr. loads before the flash was minimized were wild looking at night) but couldn't find a good carry holster for it....

Looks like a fun little popgun. I had a cheap Derringer in .22mag a few years back and at 5' it patterned more than grouped ... it was a fun little noisemaker though.
For holsters I'd say your best bet is talk to Kevin at K&D to see what he can come up with.
