Bond Arms makes derringers. And Bullpup pistols, like the one Jon reviewed here. Back in October I visited their manufacturing facility up in Granbury, Texas, about two-and-a-half hours north of me, and found out how the sausage is made . . .
Full disclosure, I’m at Robert’s house and he’s fed me far too much wine (he called it “Jesus Juice?”). Maybe these photos will have captions later, but for now I’m afraid you’ll have to figure out what’s going on yourself. Except for the lead photo: that’s Bond Arms’ .50 BMG model. Which is an inside joke. I like companies that have a sense of humor.
Before you get to the good stuff, watch my YouTube video above. In it, I shoot a Bond Arms Bullpup9 and it turns my thumb black. Don’t worry, that was all filmed pre-wine.
Okay, okay, I’ll caption the photo above. That gold thing is a “button.” It’s pushed through a barrel to press in what we know of as button rifling. Watching this process was hella rad. Make the jump to the photo below to see a static image of a man performing said process, which is a piss poor substitute for the real thing.
Jeremy’s drunk posts have fewer typos than Robert’s sober ones. Carry on . . .
^^^ that one I took at home. Thanks for reading. And remember, folks, always spay or neuter your pets.
