Multi-State Law Shield members should know that re-tooled versions of Derringer-style Bond Arms pistols designed specifically to be sold in California are now shipping and will be available in stores, such as Turner’s Outdoorsman, in the coming weeks. The models are the popular Big Bear and Brown Bear handguns.
This is the first time ever that Californians have been able to purchase the unique handguns from local dealers, the company said in a release.
“California has a robust outdoor market and we’ve worked very hard to have our products available in this state,” says Bond Arms president Gordon Bond. “We’ve been receiving requests from people in California for years, and now they’ll finally be able to experience a Bond firearm. Right now two models, the Big Bear and Brown Bear, are available, but we’re in the process of getting approval for our signature, interchangeable barrels as well.”
The Brown Bear sports an engraved California bear on the wood grip, and the Big Bear features a black, rubberized grip and galvanized gray barrel. Both models shoot the .45 Colt cartridge and have an MSRP of $524, which includes a holster.
As always, Law Shield doesn’t endorse products, but we do want to let members know about new products or services of potential interest.
