    I also have a J frame & XD9sc...and the Bond Arms is definitely cool. Considering the new defensive .410 rounds, it's a great little gun that has devastating results.

    For about the same money you can get a used Taurus Judge, and 3 more rounds...

    But I'll admit, the Bond derringers are VERY cool-looking, and built VERY solidly. The interchangeable barrels feature is also VERY interesting...

    The judge is cool too but its such a chunk. I wouldnt want to cary that on my hip all day. To me the judge is awsome for the home or to leave in the desk drawer somewhere.

    It's a large, heavy but only 2-shot gun.

    A conversation piece/collector's item at best.

    One advantage the Judge has is loading a hard cast 255 gr SWC at 875 fps. My father has one, and that is what the .45 Colt loads I reload for him chrono out of the Judge. Yes, you can shoot the same load from the Bond, but you'd be lucky to keep both rounds in a 5 gallon can at 10 ft.

    A friend has a Bond, 4.25" bbl I belive, it is heavy for the size (well made though). The Bond is a thumb cock for each round, and is not easy to operate(cock) quickly, the 3" 410's havea stout recoildue to the small birds head grip, and last but not least only two rounds. The Judge is a DA revolver, push comes to shove and you'll have 5, 3" 410 000 loads in a big hurry. That is a bunch of whoop a**.

    The Bond has the cool factor but the Judge wins in my opinion.
