Bond Arms® Customers Tell It Like It Is

Texas firearm manufacturer has become known for making the best quality custom handguns available for concealed carry. But don’t take their word for it, read what their customers are saying.

Granbury, TX (September 30, 2019) – A mere 35 miles from the hustle and bustle of Fort Worth, nestled in the small community of 8,000 residents known as Granbury, Texas, one of the biggest names in custom-made firearms is headquartered. There, Bond Arms, a company of people who share the time-worn American ideals of quality and value, produces the finest compact handguns enjoyed by collectors and concealed-carry practitioners alike. The company was founded in 1995, and in 24 short years has built a reputation based on those values. Much of their early success was not built on slick marketing; however, much of it was on word of mouth from satisfied customers.

Today, the same holds true. While the company has grown and enjoyed amazing success, it is still through the word of satisfied customers, not just from friend to friend, but often through posted comments and social media, that the company continues to enjoy amazing popularity among customers. Following are just a sample of the comments found at where more than 25 available handgun models are listed.

I had always wanted (a Ranger II) and had just never followed through with buying one until just about a month ago… All I can say is wow, this thing is incredible. The build quality is like nothing I have ever seen on anything like this, the attention to detail and finishing of these are unbelievable. You can really see the people who build these pour their heart and soul into these little hand cannons. – Shane 

My Cowboy Defender, I believe is the perfect conceal carry weapon on the market. Easily concealed, simple (to shoot) and maximum damage delivered…I was expecting a “mules” kick when I first fired it but it didn’t happen… Bond Arms has a superior weapon… – Joe H. 

I purchased the Snake Slayer for my choice for open carry here in Nebraska. Great compact gun with great impact! Love target practicing with this powerful little guy. Have never had to use it for self-defense (hope I never will), but if I do, I feel confident it will do the job! – Daniel G. 

I’m really impressed with the Ranger II .45/.410. I carry it everywhere.. One day whilst calling coyotes over a cut hay field, a hard charger came sprinting in. The coyote went down in a heap. After the rifle shot, we kept calling. Thirty minutes later I agreed to go fetch the coyote. Leaving all the gear behind, I walked the couple hundred yards downrange. When I got close, that “dead” coyote stood up. I pulled the Ranger II and with one shot finished (him). – Kevin B.

As a little girl, I was so in love with the small guns the old cowgirls used to carry in their garter. It was the perfect combination; a lady could still look like a lady but be…protected as well. My boyfriend bought me my first Bond Arms Backup. It was exactly what I’d always wanted…Everyone said someone as small as me couldn’t handle a .45 Derringer, but I proved them wrong!!! Great fun, not too much kick… – Gena B. 

I love my Bond Arms Old Glory! My new “Bond” is a true piece of art… I was amazed at how accurate such a small gun can be. Thanks for a really great buy! – Hunter J. 

This pistol (Ranger II )has lived up to all my expectations. I will carry it daily here on our ranch to dispense the varmints I come across, and I am looking forward to getting my CWP so I can carry it everywhere I go.- Wayne J. 

All I can say is “WOW.” This (Old Glory) is one of the most beautiful handguns I have ever seen… When the case was opened at the store…the sales clerk actually called some of the other sales people over to admire it. Right now, I don’t know if I should take it to the range or mount it behind glass. It is truly a work of art… – Gary M. 

I bought the Bond Mini Girl for three reasons 1) For my wife. 2) I always was intrigued about the derringer. 3) The price was impossible to beat. Well, I got the gun home and my wife loved it. Her hand was a perfect fit. We both appreciated the balance and the precise fit of the barrel to the frame… What a weapon to own!!!!! – Jeffrey H. 

Just got the Cowboy Defender in .45 Colt and .410 and put some ammo down range. The gun was so easy to handle even with this strong kick. The gun never got out of control. So much fun to shoot and I put a box of #4 shot through this little gem and was looking for more. Solid and as well made as anything on the market. – Jeff G. 

I have wanted one of these guns (Snake Slayer) for many reasons, but the main reason was for its western look. I just had to own one because I love westerns and guns! This gun Is a work of art! Pure quality! I was very impressed when I went outside and fired (it for the first time). Now I can’t put the darn thing down… – David 

“Our customers are a huge part of our success and we are not only grateful for their patronage but thankful for their input on our products and for sharing their experiences with our firearms,” says Gordon Bond, president of Bond Arms®. “We have always listened to our customers and continue to be shaped by their expectations as we work to craft quality handguns people count on whether at the range, in a competition or legally carrying.”

BOND ARMS, INC. is located in Granbury, Texas and manufactures the award-winning Bond Arms Derringer – the finest in double barrel protection. Originally organized under the name Texas Armory, the company became incorporated as Bond Arms in 1995 with the idea that the Remington Model 95 over-under, single-action derringer could be converted from an Old West anachronism into a modern & reliable handgun. The barrel and frame were redesigned to safely fire modern calibers & the entire handgun is constructed entirely from stainless steel. This makes for a pistol that’s both strong and durable.
