The Signal Defense RELIANT 4 barrel pistol redefines what's possible in small, multi-tube derringers. 

Yep, you heard that right. For those of you who just don't think a 2-barreled Derringer is enough (or those of you who want a multi-barrel secondary weapon to transition to after you empty the magazine in your Gilboa Snake  or your Pathfinder tribarrel), here's the answer — a 4 barrel pistol.

Coming to you from Signal 9 Defense is a 4 barrel pistol called the RELIANT, a “unique design that combines the compactness of a break open, derringer-type 4 barrel pistol with four barrel firepower. The RELIANT is available with interchangeable barrels in .32 Mag, .32 ACP, .38 ACP, and .38 Special, including +P.”

Triple Threat Pathfinder Edition 12-gauge shotgun.

The RELIANT will go perfectly with your double barrel Gilboa carbine – or this “Triple Threat” 12 gauge.

From the manufacturer about this 4 barrel pistol:

“The Reliant is specifically designed for concealed carry, combining the reliability of a revolver with the profile of a 1911 pistol. The contoured grip is comfortable for all shooters it’s small size makes it easy to conceal. The Reliant is ready the moment you put your finger on the double action trigger. With no external action, it can be fired from “deep cover”, from inside a jacket pocket or other concealment. Reliant’s innovative design represents a true revolution in personal defense and is perfect for both a primary weapon or a backup gun for shooters of all experience levels.”

Gosh, you can even get this powerhouse of a Derringer equipped with an integrated red or green laser if you want.

So before you ago afield with your triple-shooter shotgun, be sure to tuck a RELIANT 4 barrel pistol neatly somewhere (secured with a holster!) and don't fear the night.
