Default Bond Derringer .45LC/.410 as a Backup?

Now that I have a Judge I wonder if a Bond Derringer in .45LC/.410 would be good as a backup?

I think the Bond derringer would make an excellent backup, but never as a primary carry pistol. Two rounds just isn't enough.

I was thinking if I mixed slugs ,PDX,and 000 in the Judge and had 2 more PDX or Buckshot in the derringer that gives me 7 shots of .410 nastiness.

I don't think I need anymore than that.

WannaGator,Not to talk bad about Bond Arms,but you need to dry fire one.The triggers in those guns are absolutely horrible.I'd say they are around 10-12lb triggers,and from what I've been told that's a good one.

Actually the trigger is not that bad once u learn how to use it. You do not just pull back on the trigger on a bond arms derringer, you have to roll down on the trigger. I learned this after researching this derringer after buying one.

This doesn't sound too bad as I've owned a Glock with a "New York" trigger ie 11 pound pull and an AMT Backup in .45ACP.

It cut my forehead with the front sight the 1st time I shot it with .45ACP +P(230 Grain Golden Saber ammo if I remember correctly).

I loved/hated the AMT,I shot the guts outta that gun.

I like the multiple barrel idea that the Bond derringer that allows about 20+ calibers to be used by the same gun.
