Default Looking to buy 9 Derringer pistols.... for my Groomsmen.

Hello everyone,

So, I'm getting married in a few months and really wanted to get my groomsmen gifts that would last a lifetime. I'm leaning towards .32 or so Derringers. We all are gun lovers and really have enjoyed growing up together shooting and such. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I could get a good price on these? Cobra models would probably be good enough. I'm not really made of money but really owe it to my guys, as they have been there for me since childhood. I am not a dealer but could easily find one around here (Tucson, AZ) willing to handle the transfer for me.

This really isn't a want ad just looking for some advise....

Any help will be greatly appreciated...

Ron W.

im sure if you check around with your local gun stores/pawn shops they might cut you a deal as you are looking at buying more than one at a time. some stores will cut a better price as they might have to order them BUT they know when the order is placed its a garunteed sale. although you may consider just a gift certificate to a local gun store. that way the purchases would be processed in their name. Nothing wrong with buying them and giving them as gifts it is legal but when selling more than one handgun in a certian period of time to one individual the ffl dealer is required to submit a mulitple gun purchase form to the FBI nics center as well as to the local authorities.

Cobra derringers may not suitable for your purpose unless they never plan on firing them. Cobra triggers are horrendous. I have the .22 mag version, have fired it a few times and relegated it to the safe as a looker. I'm not bashing Cobra's since I own one but wanted to be honest with you. Since you and your friends are shooters, it would be wise to consider one that can actually be fired comfortably (because of the trigger). Others may have better opinions so you'll have to decide for yourself what is best.

A reputable gun shop would probably give you a very good price if you ordered/purchased all nine at the same time. Hopefully, availability won't be a problem but I would place the order soon. Most gun show dealers only have a few of each model of firearm.

If funds allow, you might want to consider NAA mini-revolvers or if set on derringers, Bond Arms would be my choice. I commend you on your "thank you" for your Groomsmen!

Now that's being one hell of a friend.

You're having 9 groomsmen? Good heavens. Elope, save the wedding $ and buy your friends all Kimbers.

I would be careful in providing a firearm to someone who may not be able to have one legally. I really do not know my friends backgrounds.

Thanks for the input. I have 6 groomsmen, but I want one for myself and probably a couple others for some friends helping out with other parts of the whole thing. Would have eloped already but her family would have me hung till dead.

I'll stop by my preferred shop today and see what they can do for me, specifically Cobra v. Bond Arms.

Thanks for the intel everyone, Ill update on what they say ASAP.

Remember, "straw purchasing" is a violation of the law.

Understand... that "till dead" really bites.

Dan, this is not a "straw purchase" this is a gift for a wedding party member who is participating in his wedding. Yes he will have to ensure that his groomsman can legally own a firearm, but other than that this is perfectly legal.
