Awesome little "Hand Cannon"! Make sure you keep a good grip on it slightly below the hammer before firing or your gonna get a good mark on your hand (first hand experience). Great quality firearm here though. Buds excellent customer,

Built like a tank. Works like a charm. .357 will sting a bit, but I can hold a pattern that works for me. Trigger pull was a tad over 5 lbs diagonally down/aft.

This is a great weapon. Service from Buds was all one could expect; ordered on a Monday, and received the next Monday. The Bond Texas Defender in .357 is everything I was hoping for, This is my BUG to my Ruger LCR 357. It is heavy and solid, trigger is crisp, and its accurate for its intended purpose. It is a very cool derringer! One thing of note, the derringer in the picture is not the one you will receive; the one in the picture shows extended grips, the one you will get comes with standard grips. No big deal really. The gun is five stars, buds service is four stars.

I ordered the gun monday at 2.55 pm and my ffl called me thursday to tell me he got it in I picked it up on friday and it looks great. beautiful gun built like a tank.
I got it home and run 50 rds of full power 357 thru it no problems it shoots great, preaty accurate to be what it is. I didnt notice it kicking hard but two days later and my hand still hurts but this is not a range gun. I will ccw it and mostly for deep conceal i have a m&P 40C that I carry every day.this gun is a replacement to a taurus tcp 380acp that i do not trust to many issues to trust it. I had an nra slider holster that was a tight fit but once the leather stretched a little bit it fits great and works well for iwb or owb i also ordered a sticky holster for it. all in all I love it and feel much better carrying two 357 rds than 380acp that drops the mag after every shot. it does weight a lot more but its balanced out good.
