The handle folds up like a pocket knife the guy was carring it in the little pocket on the side of his pants leg (he was wearing carharts) It has the little clip just like a fold up pocket knife has that you clip to your pocket . neatest thing I have seen it comes in a 22 or 22 Mag tiny little 5 shot revolver. He said it cost $200.00 "If" you can find one.
Yup, thats the one I was telling you about. Handle folds up into the pistol and you can clip it on your pants. I took the clip off and just carry inside the pocket. I have been doing this for years. I can tell you this, you can't hit squat with it unless you are close which is what it is designed for. But, it is better than nothing and the 22 magnum is actually a pretty good little cartridge.

Sounds like the Snakeslayer I have. a 410 shotshell almost comes out the end of the barrel, it's in about 1/4" and that 1/4" is rifled to make the derringer legal. It can't be a smooth bore under BATFE Regulations...

Even the 45LC takes up most of the bore.

I tried it at the indoor range at the club I belong to (with a lead handloaded semi wad cutter) and the bullet was tumbling at 50 feet, it impacted the target sideways.

Certainly a close in handgun but then, most attempted muggings, etc., are close in.

I for one, wouldn't want to look down the business end...if it was pointed at me....

Re: What Hand Gun do you use for Personal Protection??

I got mine at Cabelas on card points so nothing for me but I believe they are around 400 bucks,

www.bondarms.com

Neat thing is the derringer registers on the frame and the barrels are interchangeable and Bond offers barrels in various calibers. The most popular is the 45LC/410. Barrel interchange is similar to the Encore, break open the action, pull one screw and pop in another barrel. The entire gun is brushed stainless and comes with a trigger guard (thats removable for a true derringer appearace) and rosewood engraved grips.

You can also select which barrel discharges first. The derringer has 2 firing pins, individually engaged by a cam arrangement and it has a cross bolt safety so it don't discharge in your pocket.

Best of all, the derringer is made in Texas from domestically sourced materials.

I happen to like American made, made by American workers, firearms.

It weighs about a pound, maybe a little less and is the size of a pack of smokes so it fits nicely in your pocket. While I don't name my firearms (IMO, they are tools to me), you could call it a 'pocket rocket'.
