The Diamondback DB9 is a semi-automatic pocket pistol chambered for 9mm.
What makes DB9 different from other pockets is DB9 comes standard with 3-dot adjustable sights, which seems to be a luxury for self-defense guns.
Diamondback opened its doors in 2009 and has already established a name for itself in the pocket pistol market.
The DB9 uses Diamondback’s patented Zero-Energy striker firing system where the trigger is the driving force behind the firing pin as opposed to spring tension. It also has a double-action only trigger that sets off the action with a 5-pound pull. The DAO and Zero-Energy striker double as the DB9’s safety because it doesn’t have a manual one. Typically concealed carry weapons have a DAO trigger because in a situation where the user needs a pocket pistol, he or she wants to react immediately whereas a safety switch would interrupt that reaction. And, the DB9 is 0.8″ wide, so it’ll be comfortable for shooters to carry in a pocket or waist holster.
Diamondback recommends the DB9 for concealed carry or home defense.
