Bond Arms 9MM Texas Defender w/3" Stainless Barrel/Rosewood [BATD9MM]
by Benjamin B
Date Added: Thursday 13 January, 2011
This is a neat little gun. The picture is wrong on the website, but I did a little research first to ensure I was getting the gun I thought I was. My wife says it was more like 6 hours of "research" a night for the last 6 months. I was doing a little drooling. The gun you'll actually get is a 3" barreled 9mm with the small rosewood grips with the engraved star. The gun pictured looks like a Snake Slayer IV with the black ash grips.
However, this is one sweet little firearm. It's American made, locks up like a bank vault, and shoots the popular 9mm cartridge. A 9mm magazine can be used to reload and easily carry an additional 10-20 rounds of ammo, depending on the magazine make/model. I have yet to shoot it, but I've been dry firing it quite a bit. If you're used to a DA revolver, the trigger is nothing. If you're used to a single action 1911, it'll seem like it's overweight. It's comparable in size to a J-Frame for all practical purposes. It's slightly smaller, but denser.
If you're looking for a fun little gun, something for some light-duty concealed carry, or something to plink with, it's your gun. If you're looking for a bullseye gun, it's obviously not your best choice. I'll post again when I get a range report.
