The Cobra Titan Derringer
The Cobra Firearms Company Inc.
The Cobra Firearms Company is one of the top 10 manufacturers of handguns in the United States. Located in Utah, all of their guns are 100% US made and every gun carries a lifetime warranty. More than anything, Cobra is known for affordability, but don’t mistake affordability for cheap. Cobra guns work, and work really well. I have long considered the access they give working Americans to affordable personal protection a strong harbinger of 2nd Amendment rights. Not everyone can afford a $500 pistol or revolver. Getting a reliable gun into the hands of a hard working, law abiding, American for half that price or a fraction of that price does us all good, makes us all safer, and brings into our fold another shooter who will stand up for our gun rights.
Until now Cobra has been exclusively focused on the personal protection market. Entry level women shooters in particular have taken to the Cobra line of guns with nothing short of a fervor (so much so that there is a new line of gun jewelry available now on the Cobra website).
Quite by accident Cobra discovered that Cowboy Action Shooters had taken to their line of derringers for the popular derringer side matches at SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) shoots, and out of that demand comes this new gun introduced at SHOT Show this year. It is called the Titan, and for this first year it is being marketed exclusively by Cimmaron Arms, a company specializing in the cowboy action market.
That doesn’t mean that the Titan isn’t a formidable personal defense weapon. It’s long barrels are made to accommodate the .45LC shell as well as .410 shot shells. Both have the same case head, and the combination of these shells has been very popular in personal defense weapons, including derringers, for many years. This is Cobra’s first foray into the monster derringer market, and we hope to be able to review this gun in the coming months.
