I have a 22S version, it is very cute. Can't hit anything with it at a distance. Both guns keyhole - a known effect.
As far as SD utility - there are plenty of stories of them working for that. Two old geezers, one with a NAA and the other with a 22 derringer, shot a drove off a shotgun carrying bad gun in a Florida restaurant.
You may remember during the BLM marches some old coot waving a PUG at marchers with ARs. It was claimed he drove them away - not really - I think they were bemused. One guy started to rack his AR, so if Gramps popped off - that would have been bad. Gramp's female companion dragged him into the restaurant.
Sadly, there is a well known story of a big fat guy who got into a gun fight with a LEO. Bad guy absorbed several 357 rounds and killed the trooper with an NAA.
Last, you can find if you want - pictures of NAAs stuck into various orifices or under fat rolls of morbidly obese to be smuggled into jails.
I posted the results of some ballistic testing I did with it here: https://www.thehighroad.org/index.p...esting-the-naa-22-short-mini-revolver.888665/
I like the NAA with larger grip that folds to partly holster the gun.
The NAA Mini is carried fully loaded with the hammer fully down on a safety notch between the chambers like a Remington 1858 New Army pattern.
iv'e been wanting one of those for a long time but are hard to get for some reason!
And I let a couple of them pass me by at the LGS.
Been carrying one in my back pocket behind my wallet for a while now in a Desantis pocket holster. Works pretty good too. Still a novelty, and more to screw with my buddies than anything serious, but, it'll work in a pinch.
Once you figure out how to aim with them, they are actually pretty accurate. My PUG has "Big Dots" on them, and is aimed like you'd expect. The other two just have a blade type front sight, and you dont want to try and aim it like you normally would. Just use the blade for windage and sight along the top strap of the the gun. If you do that, youll get good hits, and farther out than you might think.
This was shot at around 5 yards in just that manner.
This one was shot at around the same distance, but as fast as I could thumb them off...
Mine came with a number of different grips, some on the guns, some off, mostly small, wood and plastic, and one came with the pocket folder. The pocket folder works, but its big and bulky.
The one I came to like the best, pretty much instantly too, was the Houge rubber grip that came with the PUG. I put one on each of the others too. Its small enough to be small, but its fat enough in the right places to give a very good and comfortable grip and makes shooting the guns very easy.
The only time Ive had any issues with ammo, was with this box of Remingtons that came with one of the guns. Figured I shoot it up in practice and found this...
Even keyholing, they still shot fairly well.
Havent run across that with any of the others either. The Remington also miked small when I measured them, barely making 0.220, and some miked that on the case, and not the bullet. All the others were right around 0.223.
And of course, for the older crowd that grew up with Matty Mattel. Gotta have one of these to annoy the antigun inlaws at Christmas.
A $25 fee and a few weeks later it was returned from the factory put back together. A gunsmith I'm not.
did yours come with those grips or did you buy them to install on your gun?
pocket and one for the belt. I bought it in 1976. I've carried it a lot of miles. Mine's a Mag
