    Why would you want a .45 when .500 S&W is available?
    First, the 500 is too large for me to conceal;
    Second, the recovery time from the recoil is too great;
    Third, I would be scared to death of the over-penetration and the potential consequences of the round hitting some unintended person.

    With the .45ACP, using the ammo I'm comfortable with:

    I can control the recoil sufficiently for multiple shots;
    I know what to expect regarding penetration and am fairly certain the rounds will not exit the target in most cases;
    I know from experience the round will stop the adversary from doing what I don't want in three shots or less if I do my job;
    I believe my attorney and my expert witness will be able to justify my using a .45ACP, I am far less confident of doing so with 500 S&W.

    It is intriguing and looks like it would be nice for deep carry, but the pickiness of ammo and difficuly in finding holsters is a little discouraging.

    I actually don't understand how this gun is getting nailed for pickiness of ammo. The only ammo it won't shoot is ammo that is not properly crimped. I understood when people made that statement about Seecamp guns given there was only one recommended brand and type of ammo (Winchester Silver Tips), but the Boberg/Bond Arms gun actually has a long list of recommended ammo. Much of that ammo is widely available even at Walmart, and some at pretty good prices.

    Holsters are available all over the internet, but, you are correct, not so much in most gun stores and big box stores unless you are content with "universal" types of holsters like those from Uncle Mike.

    Trust someone who owns two and has owned many other handguns, this gun is the best gun I've ever handled for the stated purpose of a deep cover, close range, rapidly deployed and utilized handgun.

    I consider it picky on ammo because 2 out of 4 of 9mm ammo that I have currently in stock and regularly use is not on the list, including the defense ammo that I prefer for my P938.

    As far as holsters, they may be available all over the internet, but none of my preferred makers (4) currently make one for it.

    You may love the gun and it may be great, but if I can’t shoot the ammo that I currently use and I can’t get a holster from one of my preferred makers, then the gun is not for me.

    Just because the ammo you use isn't on the list doesn't mean it won't work, it just means it wasn't tested by Bond (can't expect them to test every ammo on the market no can you).....Holsters I can see being an issue (for you) if the makers you prefer don't make one, but holsters Are readily available (and from quality makers)

    Its a neat gun and on the "bucket list" for sure....
