    Derringer options with trigger guard

    I know there are a few options out there for derringers with trigger guards ( Bond arms and Double Tap). Interested in seeing if there were options I am missing. Some of the Bond Arms options run in the 400-600 range ( for that kind of money there are plenty of options in the 2 inch revolver and pocket gun categories) and Double Tap isnít a widely available line anymore.

    Any feedback available would be appreciated.

    Why the trigger guard? Didnt they make a small caliber derringer with a folding handle that covered the trigger?

    Why a derringer at all? They were mediocre when they were a new design, and I think that we should just admit that they are bad now.

    I have came close to buying 1 here and there, price point is what keeps me from it personally. Idk if the original author is the same but to have something just to slip in your pocket (gym shorts, loose pajama pants) and still have a form of firearm protection was my reasoning.

    The idea of a couple extra rounds in a small configuration is what Iím interested in. Having something the size of my wallet or smaller, that I can throw in a pair of shorts and not have to think about printing, is good.

    ^^^^this

    Only reason I considered it, I open carry primarily but like you, I wouldnt mind it for my gym shorts I sometimes just wear out and about. Like I said though, the prices some of them are wanting

    I had the same idea. I carried a bond arms for 2 months and gave up. the printing wasn't an issue, but its an incredibly heavy small gun. When i would walk, my short pocket would swing because of it. VS my Glock 43, no one can tell, I don't feel it, and I carry more rounds.

    Not saying give up, they are fun to bust out with the buddies. but I think for a small carry there are many more efficient options.

    An lcp is going to be lighter than pretty much any Derringer, more rounds, easier to shoot, and cheaper. There is nothing a Derringer does these days, that a different gun won't do better.

    This was the reason for my question.

    If you want a tiny gun that is difficult to use and mostly worthless, why not pick the NAA mini revolver? Those are at least cool.
    Otherwise the micro .380s from Ruger, Keltec, and others are lighter with more ammo and better triggers. And they are not much bigger than a derringer--if any!

    Doesn't have a trigger guard, but it is still interesting. And probably very friendly for shorts.
