    Derringer

    Any one have any experience with Cimmaron Derringers? Thinking about getting one in 38 Sp. to use as a back up piece. Probably get an ankle holster for it. Originally wanted the Bond Arms 45, but it's twice the $$$

    I would want something a little more modern like a LCP for a BUG. If you want to get all realistic well any backup is better than nothing when your primary either runs out of ammo or has a malfunction, but in the tiny chance that i would ever need to use my primary, and the even smaller chance that i would need to use the backup, i would be looking for something at least in the 6 shot range like an LCP or even a nice small J-Frame.

    I think a 357 magnum S&W Snub would make a perfect BUG, and the range should really beat the derringers which have very limited range.



    EDIT::

    How about a 38 SPL +P S&W 1.87" @ only $419?

    That will probably be my BUG @ next purchase.

    That's a nice looking S&W-wish I saw one before I bought my sp101. I have an old derringer in .38sp but have found that it doesn't shoot very well would not trust as a backup. You might want to consider something along the lines of a kel tech .380 it's a very small auto with 6+1cap light and only around $250.

    I just don't think a derringer has much place other than a collection, being as they are known to have poor accuracy at even the smallest of distances and the poor capacity as well.

    I think any of the hot 380s can make a good backup, like the LCP, TCP, or the keltec . I really like the Kahr P380 but the price is further north than most will pay.

    I've got a Bond Arms with 410/45, 22lr and I ordered a 3 1/2" 357 Mag Barrel. I think it would be too heavy to carry in a ankle Holster. I have trouble with heavy shoes because of my Knees and hips.

    I use a shoulder Holster, Left side while driving Van and right side while on the Motorcycle or Motor Scooter. Has plenty of range for the purpose it's intended for and I also have my SP101 in my belt. Also I don't like Auto's.

    I have a Colt Big Bore in .38 special I love it great little gun and it was cheap and looks good

    I would love to get a well made copy of the Remington 3rd model derringer same size and weight, in a modern caliber. The Remington's are fun to shoot, but BP .41 just doesn't do it for me.

    I wish someone would come out with a remake of the HJS Frontier Four Derringer. It amazes me that Ken Friel over at North American Arms hasn't done it yet.

    That is an excellent idea. I used to have one, and I foolishly let it get away from me.
