It looks like a few folks picked up on those High Standard derringers. I'd love to find one of them DA .38's.

How do you hang on to those High Standards? It looks like the trigger is the only thing to grab on to.

I'll tell you how I do mine. Index finger along the barrels. Pull the trigger with the middle finger. Round goes right where you are pointing. They have a stiff trigger pull anyway so the middle finger as a trigger finger works well.

I own a Remington O/U in .41 RF. It is the nickle version. Have a box of ammo for it too.

M.A.........

There is just enough grip area under the trigger guard for one finger......:supergrin:

I tried the middle finger thing with my HS, but I grip it like the NAA Minis and that seems to work better for me, at least.

There are holsters for the High Standard that look like a wallet with a hole to access the trigger. They want you're wallet? Give 'em 2 shots. One to the crotch and one to the liver.

Just got these this year.

Couple of colts consecutive, limited edition.

These are dated, 1960 but are copies of a 1870's.
They are side break.

I got out again today with the Bond Arms .357.
I used Fiocchi 142gr TCFMJ .357mag ammo.'
http://img808.imageshack.us/img808/2268/bondrange002.jpg

I wanted to at least try to illustrate how much dispersion I get from the two barrels at ranges from 10ft to 50ft, holding a consistent dead-on bull sight picture.

I feel like it did pretty well, given Rem 95 style Derringers are notorious for being off the reservation past 'card table' distances.
This gun seems good enough for shuffleboard, at least.
:supergrin:

10 and 21ft ( all 10 shot groups)

http://img444.imageshack.us/img444/5963/bondrange003.jpg

30 and 40ft

http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/6796/bondrange004.jpg

50ft

http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/726/bondrange005.jpg

Once past 30ft, I think group spread had more to do with my crude sight picture and trigger break than regulation of the barrels.
The gun also seems to stabilize bullets pretty well; I saw some tail to a few holes, but the target may have curled a little, too.
For as small as it is, 50rnds of .357mag didn't present much difficulty, aside from the stiff trigger abrading my finger slightly. Ammo felt about the same as the Win 145gr Silvertip, perhaps a little milder.

Fun gun.

I want to pick up a Bond Arms derringer. I actually know the guy that started the company, not too well. I will probably be sitting near him and his wife in church here in a couple hours. He is a nice guy.

I've heard lots of good things about the Bond brothers too..... one reason I wanted to buy the gun.

I like those double action derringers, had one for a short time, but it came to a bad end. Mine was a .40 caliber, If I was to do it again I would go .38 I think.

Bad end? Do you mean you had a Ka-boom?

I'd agree that 38spl is about as powerful as can I'd like to go in such a small derringer.......only one good finger to grip.

Mine isn't for any practical use anyway.....just something to show my friends!

I've seen some of his videos, very useful techinques on controlling which barrel fires first, etc.

These are dated, 1960 but are copies of a 1836.


Not a 1836, those are much newer, firing metallic cartridges, so they were originally built after the civil war. Beautiful.

I usually post the pictures in the various derringer threads that pop up. I think it was an ammunition issue, at least that was the best we could figure.

I actually meant 1872, It is hard to rattle off correct specifics from rusty memory. I was only 36 years off.

Colt was founded in 1836, by some guy name Sam... I forget his last name... but he was buddies with GioaJack... :supergrin:

Caried a Bond in 45 ACP for a couple of years. I actually took a few squirrels with it- just have to practice with it. I could keep it on a headshot on a silouette at about 60 feet.
Good rugged guns.

There was a COP .357 in the case at my LGS today. Don't know for sure if it is for sale or not, sometimes he has stuff from his personal collection out just to look at. Made me drool all the same. I would love to get my hands on it.

Hey......I remember seeing that pic before! Must have been quite a jolt to the hand!

Yeah......the COP 357 is something I wouldn't mind owning either.......very unusual and compelling design! :supergrin:

Better pay you AOW tax if you get one of those.

A little scar on my right thumb, and my right thumb nail now has a permanent split to it. I can't let it grow out too far or it causes me trouble.
