Derringer Firearms for Sale Online in Detroit, Michigan
Derringer firearms are small, lightweight, and simple to use. The first model was invented in 1952 by Henry Deringer as a single shot, .41 caliber muzzle-loading pistol. Because they were single shot, the original derringers were sold in pairs, offering a second shot in case the first one failed.
Only 15,000 pistols were made at the time, but later the design caught on, and other companies started manufacturing their own similar models.
In time, the term derringer became synonymous with any small gun that is not a semiautomatic pistol or a revolver.
Derringers were initially used by the military, but in the late 1800s, they became very popular with women because they were so easy to conceal. They could be easily carried in a purse, a pocket, or as a stocking gun, and they remain very popular among women to this day. The designs, materials, and other features have greatly changed throughout time, but the concept of the pocket gun remains the same.
Today, there are three well-known brands that make derringers: Cobra, Cimarron, and Bond Arms. The former offers an affordable line of derringers in a wide variety of calibers. Cimarron offers two models, one that uses a .32 H&R Magnum cartridge, and one that uses a .38 special cartridge.
Bond Arms’ derringers are famous for being reliable. What they all have in common is their small size and portability.
If you’re looking for a gun that you can take with you anywhere, and conceal it no matter what you’re wearing, you need a derringer. These little guns can provide just enough protection when needed, without attracting any negative attention or looking intimidating to other people.
