I can give you my opinion for what it's worth. I bought one about 3 months ago because I just had to have a derringer and the price was reasonable $140. I've had some fun with it but would not buy another if I lost it! #1 the trigger is horrendous. #2 the recoil is hard to control. #3 you won't hit anything farther away than the other side of the card table. ( I guess that's really all it was designed for) #4 My Ruger 380LCP is lighter and only a smidge larger and has 7 shots.Is anyone aware of a published formal review of the Cobra Enterpises Big Bore Derringer chambered in .38 special?
