Bond Arms 6″ Derringer: Name This Gun!

Bond Arms has released [what could well be] the world’s longest derringer — the firearms equivalent of the world’s most fire retardant paper hat. Be that as it is, the company is running a contest on their Facebook page to name their new long-barreled derringer. The prize: the new gun! Some weisenheimer might suggest calling it the Peter North special, but I couldn’t possibly comment. [h/t]

    The MiniMax?

  2. avatar Vhyrus says:

    I went with the bond arms pinocchio. I’m not holding my breath for a response.

  3. avatar Noishkel says:

    Well honestly, if your going to make something that size anyway by not give it 4 barrels and create the new version of the COP. :p

  4. avatar matty 9 says:

    The longer POS that now negates the entire purpose of our guns: concealment.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      The extra mass makes it more comfy to shoot, my friend… 🙂

      1. avatar matty 9 says:

        if you want “comfy to shoot” get a full sized 9mm service pistol. This company is only around to make pocket pistols. What’s the point of this thing??

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:

          A six inch derringer makes a dandy boot derringer…

        2. avatar Geoff PR says:

          “This company is only around to make pocket pistols. What’s the point of this thing??”

          Whoops, I didn’t answer that as I should have. –

          The primary ‘point’ of a company is to make money for the owners, unless the company is a rich person’s amusement or is supposed to lose money to make the company less attractive to a hostile acquisition.

          (Years back, I worked for a chemical company that worried about being bought, broken up, and sold off in chunks. You remember, the 80’s? So our division lost money on every short ton they produced for a few years. It also depressed the spot price and indirectly killed off one of our competitors who didn’t have an owner with rather deep pockets .)

          So, even if it is ‘stupid’, but sells, it’s all good…

    2. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

      Concealability depends on the context and what you have to work with. A single stack SA’s slender profile disappears more readily than a comparable double stack or its chunky cousin revolver in an IWB application. Likewise, in a flash bang bra, economy of length, width, and weight are in order.

      However, where some extra barrel length can be accommodated, as in a boot or sleeve or even an off-body mode like in a binder, taking advantage of such a sidearm as this could offer benefits of less felt recoil and longer sight radius. It isn’t an all around winner and may not even be best-in-class, but its longer barrel doesn’t necessarily disqualify it outright as a concealed carry option.

    Bond Arms Dare-inger
    Bond Arms Dare Ya Derringer
    Bond Arms Smoke Stack
    Bond Arms Saturday Day Special
    Bond Arms Double Dirty
    Bond Arms Double Trouble
    Bond Arms Bon-dead
    Bond Arms Boot Boss
    Bond Arms NOW THIS IS A DERRINGER (Dundee style)

    All joking aside I think the marketing hook for this thing is as a backup “boot gun” so I’d say keep it simple and sweet

    Bond Arms Boot Length

    1. avatar anonymoose says:

      How about the “Deeringer,” since it’s in .357, .45, or 10mm it would be legal in many states to hunt deer with?

  6. avatar Geoff PR says:

    With a nod to ‘Aerosmith’, how about…

    “My Big Six Inch!”

    (Singing like Stephen Tyler)

    “If you come on up to rob me,… I’ll whip out my Big Six Inch!”

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Well, this sucks.

      I neither have (nor am I interested in getting) a Facebook account.

      I claim copyright on “My Big Six Inch!” or similar variant, 7:15 pm, 1/17/2017.

      1. avatar Jeff K says:

        “I neither have (nor am I interested in getting) a Facebook account.” Same here, no time for unsocial media. TTAG is bad enough.

        1. avatar Geoff PR says:


        2. avatar Joe R. says:

          Agree to A_ _book.
          Disagree on TTAG not even in the same universe, And Smuckerberg making a failed run for the presidency is going to make Hillary’s run look like milk money. Freekin globo-communist. Nobody pulls for communism like the PIS’s that think they’re going to wind up at the top. Castro’s ‘people’ didn’t have two milk jugs to tie together to swim to FL. But Castro’s estate splits $90 Million? Kinda sounds ike Obama, and Hillary, and . .. Unsert you favorite evil (D) here.

  7. avatar Vhyrus says:

    I also submitted Bond Arms Deep 6. I’m a little more hopeful on that one.

  8. avatar former water walker says:

    The Ludicrous! I’m guessing I won’t win?

  9. avatar Steve says:

    Pimp Cane?

    edit: I’d buy one if it had adjustable target sights and a bipod mount.

  10. avatar Matt Richardson says:

    Oh look! A longer, narrower version of their “Snake Slayer,” which would have more appropriately been named the “Shoe-Size Reducer.”

    I have a perfect name! How about: “Stupid Fucking Waste of Money?”

    1. avatar Vhyrus says:

      Well Gee, Matt, why doncha stop beatin around the bush and just tell us what you think about it.

  11. avatar jwm says:

    The Stainless Steel Dildoeringer. Soon to be equipped with the new 12 inch MDA tribute barrels.

  12. avatar Jack says:

    The Diggler.

      “Paging Dirk Diggler…

      Dirk Diggler to the TTAG courtesy phone, please…”

    2. avatar Ing says:

      This one wins my vote (for whatever that’s worth). Made me spit food all over my desk.

  13. avatar Ironhead says:

    The pointless and useless???

  14. avatar strych9 says:

    Well… if you manage to miss or not incapacitate your attacker you can use it as a pretty handy fist pack.

    “Pretty Handy Fist Pack” it is. Runner up for me would be “I don’t need a sap” followed by “Sap 3.0”.

  15. avatar bLoving says:

    Mad Dog. In honor of our new SecDef.
    Or Long John, in honor of… someone named John…

    1. avatar 16V says:

      How ’bout Baldry? (The only “Long John” person that comes to mind…)

      Don’t try to lay no boogie woogie on the king of rock-n-roll….

    1. avatar Dan in CO says:

      Well said! Bond Arms “Paris Gun”

  17. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

    Is that a derringer in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

    1. avatar Walter, NOT The Dude says:

      “The Holmes”

  18. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

    Since they’ve already got the Snake Slayer they could chamber it in .45acp and call it the Soul Slayer.

  19. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    How about the Bond Arms WDTCF Derringer … and WDTCF is an acronym for Where Did That Come From?

  20. avatar McBell says:

    Bond Arms Concealment Slayer.

  21. avatar Oscar Cannington says:

    I’d call it the Yapslapper.

  22. avatar Dan in CO says:

    The Bond Arms – “Not the Dumbest Thing I’ve Seen on TTAG from this Shot Show”.

  23. avatar Alan Esworthy says:

    The Jumbo Shrimp

    (I don’t farcebook, so if anybody wants to poach that, feel free!)

  24. avatar Mike Betts says:

    The originals were from Deringer, the copies are derringers, so this one must be a “derrringer”.

  25. avatar Koop says:

    Chamber it in .460 Rowland, and you’ve got a Bear Slayer.

  26. avatar Adamanter says:

    It’s missing the required four full length Picatinny Rails on the top, bottom, and sides of the barrel- if it only had those, it could be the Tacti-Poseur

  27. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    The Bond Arms Above Average.

    I was always told that six inches is above average.

  28. avatar Kroglikepie says:

    Either “Derpinger” or “Fing-longer”

  29. avatar Musky Mike Johnson says:

    Tex-Caliber. As Excalibre was the King of all swords, Tex-Caliber is the King of Texas quality derringers!

  30. avatar Musky Mike Johnson says:

    TEXCALIBER. As Excalibur was the King of all swords and highly revered, TEXCALIBER is the King of Texas quality derringers!

  31. avatar Ed says:

    They should call it the “Whatthehell”…or the “Just No”.

  32. avatar SdubM45 says:

    The Bond Arms Howdah.

    1. avatar Warren says:

      It does look a lot like the old howdah pistols.

  33. avatar Sean says:

    The Bond “We’re sorry about your penis, try this instead”

  34. avatar Bob says:

    Joining the game…Lacks two suprressors and a reflex sight.

  35. avatar Joe R. says:

    . . .

    Hahahahahahahahaha ?

    Didn’t hear one mf say they’d turn down a free one ???
    If you had to draw that, the look on the other person’s face would be priceless. They should call it “Priceless”

    1. avatar jmf552 says:

      Here’s your first. I would turn it down. I would not even get in my car, drive to my LGS and fill out the paperwork for that POS.

      The name I thought of was “The Bond POS,” but I realized that was redundant. This is a gun people buy solely to show to their friends, thinking that will make them look cool…but it doesn’t.

      1. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

        Yes, in Amerika we should only be allowed to own practical handguns. Buying an impractical gun for a range toy just because it might be a hoot to shoot is just wrong. Besides, Bond Arms derringers are so weak they can’t even be chambered in .500 S&W! In the puny .357 magnum cartridge that 28oz. derringer would barely pump out 800ft/lbs of energy. And everyone knows it takes at least 7 rounds of .357 to kill a bad guy. What a POS!

    2. avatar Ironhead says:

      Never turn down a freel gund….. as long as it’s legal……

  36. avatar orbro says:

    chamber it in 45-70, call it the “Compensator”

  37. avatar pieslapper says:

    For really “deep concealment “.

  38. avatar TruthTellers says:

    Frontier Enforcer

  39. avatar Strong alike Bull says:

    The Dirk Derringer

  40. avatar MLee says:

    Just because someone CAN make something, doesn’t mean they should. If they do make it, few should buy it due to its intrinsic lack of practical purpose. For self defense, it’s wholly inadequate. For back-up, it’s inferior to the many fine products on the market. I see little purpose.

    1. avatar Curtis in IL says:

      Not much R&D or tooling required for this, so not much investment, ergo not much risk for Bond Arms.

      This is what happens when a company runs out of ideas, in an industry that has run out of ideas.

  41. avatar H. Mason says:

    Her desire

    1. avatar TruthTellers says:

      That’ll be the name of the 9 inch blued version 😉

  42. avatar MintMar says:

    This kinda reminds me of the old soviet-era jokes about their propaganda on being first and foremost in various realms of technology: that their garden gnomes are biggest in the world and their wristwatches are the fastest.

    1. avatar Pete says:

      In actual fact it was about their integrated circuits being the biggest in the world.
