Default Derringer

Anyone here carry a Derringer? Seems to me they are very concealable,light and inexpensive.

The downside is you only get two shots, but you could carry a few extra rounds. The chances are of two shots doesn't get you out of it, ten shots won't either.

What are good Derringer brands?

I carry a NAA .22 Magnum derringer(along with a CZ75B .40 S&W). It isn't much for stopping power, but at least I get 5 shots. I don't even notice it in my pocket...

American Derringer makes a double barrel (or single) chambered in .45-70
if that won't do it, nothing will!

I couldn't find a 45-70 listed anywhere. Did you mean 45/410? There is a HUGE difference! There is no way you could hold on to a 45-70 fired in a derringer... these are MASSIVE bullets.

He must mean the .45/410. like you said there's just no way you could fire a 45-70 from a derringer.

Is the .22 magnum a single action?

I have the NAA 5-shot 22 Magnum as my boot gun. It is a lot of fun to shoot! A box of 50 rounds for 10.00 and go play...

Yes it is, but it's real easy to cock! I can usually get 5 shots on a target in about 2.5 seconds.

Some ammo choices for your 22 Mag Derringer... The second from the right is the most powerful. That's a PMC Predator, and it's half-again more potent than the others. The snake-shot on the left is the least potent. The second from the left is a polymer tipped FEDERAL V-MAX, it's the FASTEST of them all, but it's only a 30 Grain bullet.
