Bond Arms has been making quality products for a very long time, most notably derringers that are standard by which all others are judged. Made in Texas, by Texans. Let us not forget that either. This year, however, they have stepped out into magazine fed arena. And the product should have other CCW specialty companies worried.

The model just released is Bond Bullpup 9. The grip offers a very deep cut under the slide, making the bore axis incredibly low. The trigger is actually behind the chamber. Hence the bullpup name. I have yet to shoot one, but the grip feels nothing short of amazing. The trigger is great for a CCW gun, and the size for 7+1 rounds of 9mm is perfect. The price isn’t exactly on par with the polymer wonders, but it has my attention. I like the gun enough from holding it I would be willing to consider it, even at an MSRP of $1,099.
The all steel frame is wrapped with rosewood grips, complete with a stainless steel slide. Visually, the gun is stunning. The sights are big enough to use, and the gun points like magic.

Not content with a totally sweet carry gun, at SHOT Show Bond Arms took it a step further. On display was the new suppressor model complete with a can. This is the most compact hearing safe handgun package in the world and is sure to catch some attention. 10 inches overall, 5 in the slide, and 5 in the can. Due to the rotating barrel design of the Bullpup 9, the can is QD, not thread on.
Bond Arms is claiming 3-inch groups at 25 yards, and 1,250 feet per second (fps) in velocity. That is a lot of awesome in a CCW package. Get em while they are hot!
