I am not starting this thread to make a caliber debate I just read an article about how popular these small North American Arms .22 rollies actually are. Then I thought, if a SA only, 5-shot .22 revolver can be so popular, why have no-one brought out a super compact pistol as well? Even if the magazine only holds 5 rounds, you still have 1 shot more than the NAA rollies as one round will be in the pipe. The grip can be made very small and thin, thereby reducing weight and increasing ultra concealability. Then you have all the bonusses of a pistol as well, like faster follow-up shots, extra magazines etc. I would rather buy a small DAO pistol like this than a SA revolver, in this size. That said, I carry a 9mm, but this is just a question that sprung up in my mind.
