    Derringers at dawn

    I wonder how many members carry a derringer either regularly or occasionally?

    I carry a American Arms derringer in 9mm. It started as just a hot weather piece when I was wearing shorts & a t-shirt but now I carry it all the time as a backup.

    Its not a size thing. At 6' 4" & 270lbs I can (and have) conceal a full size UZI.

    So if you carry a derringer dont be bashful, lets hear about it!

    Even better, a little gun porn will be appreciated!

    Here are my "lite" carry guns.

    Never argue with an idiot. First they drag you down to their level then they beat you with experience!

    Sweet!! Nice collection!

    I'm not a big derringer fan but fancy the idea of having one. If I get one it will be a Bond Arms with a trigger guard in .410/.45 Colt. The "Snake Slayer"

    I am also eyeing the "Judge" from Taurus. A friend of mine who happens to be a state trooper has one and loves it. It's not his duty weapon though. He carries it for personal defense when he is not working. For work, it's a Glock 22 in .40 S&W (Golden Sabres) which he also loves.

    My summer carry is either this Cobra Derringer (9mm) in a pocket holster

    I had one years ago but not in a long time. It was a 38 special.

    9MM COBRA Derringer long bore, I carry it all the time. I have both barrels for it, short and long. The black barrel is a stock photo of what it looked like when I got it.

  7. I've used a .32ACP Davis (now Cobra) derringer for concealed carry on occasion for about 15-20 years now. It goes in the front pocket in a custom pocket holster I had made by a local shoe shop owner back when I first got it. I chose the .32 because it is built on a smaller frame than the 38 and 9mm, so it hides better.

    I only use it when I can't carry anything larger because it ain't much but it DOES beat having nothing at all.

    Every gun safe should have at least one.

    I just bought a High Standard derringer in .22 wmr. After doing some research I decided it was important for safety reasons to get a double action, and I like the reputation of the High Standards. This will be a BUG for me, but there are times that this or a purse gun are all I can carry, and this should be easier to draw.

    kb8uvm, I like that holster you have on your Cobra. What is it?

    Fondis Firearms ,

    I couldn't find a holster that I liked for the Cobra so I made a couple holsters myself.

    Here's a pic of the holster I use for the Cobra when I'm driving (cross draw), it works out pretty good when I'm on the motorcycle.
