Hi all, I'm new to this forum but from what I have read so far it looks like a knowledgeable group. I've got what is probably an unusual one for you all to ponder. I picked up a Derringer in 9 MM at a gun show this weekend. It is not my primary carry gun, I've just always liked the look of them. Since I live in the land of the free, (at least for now), I bought it just because I can. Anyway, does anyone know of a company that makes, or would make a holster for it. I'm not sure what would be best, pocket, belt, or ankle. Maybe all three depending on what I am wearing.

Any help would be appreicated.

Thanks.

Look at www.andrewsleather.com Sam makes pocket holsters that would work very well for one of these derringers.

Sam sure does do good work, I must admit. You may also want to look in "Related Links" above in the "Holsters" section for some really good holster makers.

Hey Joe,
Would it be possible for you to post a picture of your derringer? I've never seen one in 9mm. Just curious.
Thanks & good shooting.....deadeye.

A few companies make a Derringer in 9mm. Bond Arms is the high-end ($350+), while Cobra (previously Davis) makes a very reasonable 9mm Derringer ($130 range). I own a 9mm Cobra, which while not a "primary" weapon, can be used when your primary is too large for concealed carry.

FYI; the Derringer is a bit slow to bring into action - requiring cocking and releasing the safety to fire (I carry it loaded, half-cocked, with the safety engaged). It is however surprisingly accurate at reasonable distances (maintaining a 10" group at 12ft). It is potent and very accurate at realistic close-up ranges under 12ft.

Unlike the very nicely finished and tiny North American Arms 22 handguns, the 9mm Derringer offers the security only a larger cal round can provide IMO.

Visit these web sites for more info:
Bond Arms: http://www.bondarms.com/
Cobra: http://www.cobrapistols.com/
North American: http://www.naaminis.com/magnum.html

Good luck with your final selection.

Hugh

I have a Bond Arms with a 9mm barrel conversion and presently keep it in a Mil-Tech #18 nylon cordura holster . Fits perfectly. Bond Arms also sell several nice leather belt and pocket holsters for their derringers.
