Derringers have always held the role of the smaller pistol, traditionally making them frequent choices for women or those looking for a firearm that is easy to hide. How then, could something so small have changed the course of American History in an instant?
History buffs know the event we’re talking about – it was a .44 caliber derringer which was used by John Wilkes Booth to shoot and kill President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. Of course, back then the pistol was known as a Deringer, with a single R, named for the designer, Henry Deringer. The modern spelling actually came about due to the vast number of imitators who added an extra R into the name, with this double-R name eventually becoming the more popular form.
Even in today’s world, the derringer pistol has the same benefits it has had since the beginning. It is a small, yet powerful, weapon. It is easy to conceal and makes for a viable defense option for those with limited carrying capacity. Its two-shot capacity makes it easy to use in a pinch by anyone with or without familiarity with pistol reloading.
