    After watching these vids, and especially the more informative Hicock 45 vid, I gotta say I don't personally consider the NAA a viable carry piece.

    They're fun though - remind me, I'll bring mine to next year's shoot for the curious.

    Not for everyone and you have to be aware of a few things about how they operate like the Safety Notch between cylinder charge to allow all 5 chambers to be carried safely loaded and not placing you hand/fingers near the cylinder bbl gap (true for all revolvers, but easy to fergit with these diminutive shooters trying to get a better grip).

    I had mine, but had so many other guns it stayed in my britches pocket besides showing it to a few folks.

    Saw a crime show on TV that reports on real crimes.

    Woman killed someone in a bar dispute with one of these guns in .22mag.

    There is a "manual of arms" for every firearm. Each gun has a learning curve of what to do and not do. NAA mini revolvers are no different. And so what! You just read the manual, use your common sense, remember the universal safety rules, and you get to shoot and live happily ever after. Never mind what you 'think' about these guns, you need to spend some time shooting one to fully appreciate their capabilities, and to realize your own potential with them. Enjoy.

    Someone made a post on here some years ago where a prisoner had one shoved up his rectum..............I can't remember if that was the incident where he shot a cop with one from the back seat or not.

    Dang, you got one fer each boot and a vest pocket :tooth: :guns: :guns:[/QUOTE]

    I have carried both of the NAA revolvers as a backup, at times. I have a couple of holsters for both. Each has a clip holster that fits in the inside pocket of my denim coat. And one with a clip that fits my belt and doesn't look like a holster; hidden in plain sight.

    For a 'get off me now!' gun they fill the bill nicely. Just have to remember that shot placement is really important with either.

    I did some chronograph work with the NAAs with .22 LR and .22 WMR a few years ago and have the results hidden somewhere on this computer. Can't seem to find it. Actually not that bad for a short barreled pistol, IIRC.

    The fat 'Goodyear' grips I have on mine also make a two handed grip a LOT safer, too.
