Great pocket gun. Very well made and money well spent. Yes it is a handful to shoot but at 7-10 yards putting two shots on target, center of mass is very easily done. Do not compare it to a range gun as it is not that. This is a save your life gun with two rounds of 45acp ready to go.

Buds is the way to go, won`t go anywhere else. Pistol is exactly what I expected it to be, a concealed carry gun. It isn`t a lot of fun to shoot at the range, but it does what its supposed to do.

The DoubleTap is a very well made firearm that does exactly what it is meant to do. It is NOT comfortable to shoot, and if you are looking for an inexpensive gun to shoot recreationally, this is obviously not a good choice.

The fit and finish of the gun are great. Right out of the box, everything worked smoothly, no break-in required. The pistol comes with two speedloaders similar to Bianchi Speed Strips. One holds six rounds and is meant to be carried in your pocket, etc, and one holds two rounds and tucks up very nicely into a storage hatch inside the handle. Using the two round speedloader, you can fire both shots, reload, and be ready to fire again in a few seconds. This is probably not combat effective, but this derringer is not designed for a firefight, it is designed for concealability and self-defense.

I really like that this gun does not feature a manual safety. There is an ambidextrous slide that opens the gun up for reloading, which is accomplished by both barrels tipping up. They are spring-loaded, and reloading is quick and easy. Spent cases are easy to extract, and new ammunition goes in without hesitation. The "safety" on the gun is a long, stiff trigger pull. The initial take-up is deliberately long and not as heavy, and the trigger then "stacks" just before firing. I cannot imagine that somebody could pull this trigger by accident, even if they hooked it and used it to pull the gun from a holster or pocket. The trigger is stiff enough (about 10 pounds at a rough guess) that it may give elderly or arthritic people some trouble. The recoil most certainly would.

Even with the ported barrels, the recoil on this pistol is considerable. Factor in that the grip is almost rectangular in cross section, and this pistol is somewhat painful to shoot. I did not shoot with gloves, as I would not have them in a self-defense scenario. After firing a few rounds, I was satisfied that the pistol functioned reliably, and wanted no more. My hand was sore between my thumb and forefinger for several days afterward. I will look for an accessory for the grip that will cushion the recoil some, or at least round off the edges of the grip a little more.

I am very satisfied with this purchase, and I recommend the gun for those who are not arthritic or have weak hands. This will make a fine gun to keep in the glovebox or underneath a table by the front door. I will not carry this gun, mostly due to the limited capacity. I have a Kahr CW380 that I prefer for that purpose.

Like everyone else, I read the reviews and watched the online videos, but something about the double tap intrigued me, and I picked one up when the prices dropped. Shooting this is not as bad as everyone would lead you to believe, but it does kick. I use 185 grain hollow points and while it does have a noticeable recoil, two shots (double tap) are possible. It’s not meant to be a range gun, but you need to consider the tradeoff for the power of the .45 ACP versus the .380’s that are the same size.

I had already read all the reviews here and watched a few YouTube videos, so I went into this with my 66 year-old eyes open, clutching a large bottle of Advil. I'll have to agree with most everyone here in saying this gun is NOT fun to shoot... BUT... I have every confidence that should the time come to put it to use, it will get the job done. Bud's shipped it to my FFL, and the transaction went smoothly in every way. My FFL has an indoor range, so when it arrived I rounded up a box of of Blazer 230gr and an unsuspecting friend to help me check it out. First I shot 2 rounds and yelled MOMMY! After recomposing myself I shot 2 more. The silhouette target, 10' away, had 4 hits center mass, and my hand WAS stinging! My buddy summoned up all his "can so" courage and fired a couple rounds, then a couple more with the same hand-ringing results. At that point I grimaced and said I thought I had got my money's worth out of the range fee! However, by that time some other customers and one of the guys who works there had gathered around, so I offered them a go at it. Two takers tried their hand at it (pun intended), firing 4 rounds each. after that, my buddy and I shot 4 more rounds each. Absolutely had our fill of it and went back up front. Hits in the target equaled rounds fired. The four of us related our experience to each other and a few more wide-eyed customers. No joke - although we all agreed it was nasty to shoot, we all felt it was one terrific little .45, and Bud's price cannot be beaten. That night my palm was pretty red. Next day my palm was deep purple. Day after that the back of my hand was, too! Something else to think about - when I told a KY State Trooper buddy about it he warned me about shooting a ported gun at night. What he actually said can't be repeated in polite company - expect the first round to blind you for a WHILE. Perhaps the non-ported version would have been the better choice. Of course, my first consideration in choosing the ported version was pain mitigation, but I don't see how the non-ported barrel could hurt MUCH more? lol Oh yeah, he also advised me to get some Buffalo Barnes 160gr Low Recoil with low flash powder. It came today, and I'd like to say I can't wait to try them... but I can. :)
