Deflect Arrows is a combat feat that allows to deflect projectiles once per round when I would normally be hit by the projectile. The only projectiles listed as non-deflectable are:

Unusually massive ranged weapons (such as boulders or ballista bolts) and ranged attacks generated by natural attacks or spell effects

A bullet shot from a firearm has very low mass (even though velocity is likely high). I don't know of any bullets generated by natural attacks, nor by spell effects.

So, did I get the rules right, can I really be that badass and deflect one bullet per round with one free hand?

Congratulations, you're -that- badass, as long as you're not facing a scatter weapon.

According to the firearm rules you're specifically eligible to deflect and snatch bullets:

Deflecting and Snatching Bullets: The Deflect Arrows feat and the Snatch Arrows feat can be used to deflect bullets, but not pellets shot from a scatter weapon. Neither of these feats can be used to deflect siege firearm attacks.
