IMHO there isn't any point to a derringer these days. They are nothing but novelty firearms. Two shots that may hit a pie plate at seven yards if the barrels have been properly regulated. But the makers don't go to the trouble of doing this.

I'll make do with my S&W M642 Airweight .38 Special. Five rounds and I can actually hit a three inch target center at ten yards with all rounds. But there will always be those who just have to day dream that they are the actor Richard Boone playing Paladin in the old TV western "Have Gun Will Travel".

And so it goes.
