There’s an old joke in the outdoors community. When someone yells “Bear!” everyone looks around and asks, “where?” But when someone yells “Bee!” everyone runs. Even the great Muhammad Ali once said, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” And now Bond Arms makes that more feasible for us mere mortals with its new Honey B derringer. Chambered in .22 LR, .380, 9mm, or .38 Special, the pocket pistol makes a great backup or close-quarters solution.
The Bond Arms Honey B
Building on the success of the new B6 grips and Stinger Rough Series, Bond Arms brings a welcome mashup. Utilizing a stainless-steel frame with the Rough series finish, the Honey B is rugged and substantial in hand. Weighing a total of 17.5 ounces, the Honey B provides a manageable weight that helps mitigate recoil impulse.
Likewise, the addition of the new B6 grips helps to ensure a solid purchase and secure retention when firing. The grips are constructed of B6 resin and have diamond texturing for additional grip. The extended grip features a hand-filling palm swell and pinky cut to help lock it into the hand.
The Honey B comes with a 3-inch stainless-steel barrel chambered in your choice of .22 LR, .380, 9mm, or .38 Special. However, the barrel is interchangeable, so you can buy one caliber and swap out the barrel for a different caliber. This works well if you would like to practice with .22 LR but carry 9mm, for example.
But it is worth noting that .22 LR is not available as an accessory barrel. So, if you want .22 LR, you must start with a full .22 LR pistol. Then you can switch to any of the other calibers because the other three are all available as accessory barrels. It is also important to know that the Honey B is not compatible with hand cannon or original Stinger barrels.
Like the Stinger Rough Series, the Honey B has retracting firing pins and a patented rebounding hammer. The single-action pistol features a 7-pound trigger pull and is secured via a cross-bolt safety. As a result, the pistol carries safely in the pocket or in a holster until ready to fire.
The Bond Arms Honey B is available now with an MSRP of $320.00. For more info, please visit BondArms.com.
