I've been following this story, and noticed a separate Web site just for this pistol (?) I wonder if Bond will make a success of it. Boberg was located in a suburb, about 20-30 minute drive, from my house. Does anyone here own one? Thoughts anybody? :D

That's a 2 year old article and the author mentions that he hasn't found a round that is reliable in the pistol yet (at time of writing).
I would take that seriously as a drawback in a pistol I would buy. Just my 2 cents.
Interesting design concept though!

Yeah, the design has been tried before - with mixed results and little success. Boberg was sold to Bond Arms, in late 2015. I'm just not sure why anyone would pay near a thousand dollars, for a pistol that's unproven and temperamental. There are so many other good choices available for a lot less money.

The one I keep following is the Reliant Signal 9. It's a 4 barrel derringer, like the Cop in the late 70s. Like the Boberg , it started out as one company, then got bought by another company. They still haven't produced a gun. Still...I'd buy one just to have if they end up reasonably priced and functional. I like odd crap like that.
