I've fired a derringer once -- a copy of the old Remington double barrel (don't know what make) in .38 sp. It was during a CAS match. I found it hard to handle, hard to shoot accurately (even at spitting distance) and with a truly lousy trigger.

As a novelty to play with at the range -- maybe. As a serous working gun -- why? Some of the small .380 and even 9x19 auto-loaders are almost as small but much more useful.
