how heavy are they? i dont think that i would buy one but still interested about them.hunterx said:I always wonder about the term "snake protection".
Simply because as fast as I am ....its always been faster to just step away.
However the bond arms are well built and if you have not held one , they may be bigger/heavier than you may think.
But they are much better built than a davis or those leinads that used to be out there.
But the cost will reflect this.
Unless you're recoil sensitive I don't see why you won't be able to touch off 2 "quick" rounds.
After all it's not like you'll be spraying 19rds of 9mm.
And I won't get into any talk of the 410 for defense out of these pistols but with that being said.....
I think there are better solutions but they are well built guns , if not the best in its class.......
Sure it would and yet the 22 pistol is still NOT considered a "formidable" weapon , so your point would be what?John S said:The fact of the matter is a .22 racing around inside your skull will drop you in your tracks.
I'd say that about sums it up and you'd be accurate on your comments regarding a j frame.HighCountry66 said:Here is some informal testing of the 410 as a self defense arm. http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot41.htm
410 wouldn't be a choice of mine, but then I mostly carry a 380 which isn't a great stopper either, but fits in my pocket nicely. Those Bond derringers are made well, but for their size and heft you can get a j-frame and be comparable size with 3 or 4 more shots.
For anyone intereted box of truth did some more informal testing on small calibers and penetration. http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot26.htm

I know that, were I staring down the barrel of a 41 caliber pistol.. well it'd make me stop and think.John S said:Hence I must question the term that was used by someone as formidable.
