    I've been carrying my 1-5/8ths magnum in a pocket holster. I'm thinking of going to belt carry so the primers don't go stale on me. I like the idea of belt carry but so far haven't seen any decent cases. Something that Velcro closes would be great versus most camera and phone cases that zip closed. Any ideas?

    Are you serious? If you are.....change out the ammo once a year (or whatever interval makes you feel good)

    Some people choose and carry a gun for serious defensive purposes....some carry a talisman. As a talisman, it doesn't matter how you carry it.

    To me, the whole concept of the NAA (aside from fun and novelty) is to allow one to carry it where other guns simply will not fit. A plethora of better guns can be belt carried

    I will tell everyone to carry what works for them. That doesn't mean that tiny guns are more effective than bigger guns. If someone chooses to carry a tiny gun, first of all, it's your keyster, not mine. Second of all, these are EXPERT guns. They are harder to hold, and the smaller sight radius means they are harder to shoot accurately. The smaller rounds make getting good hits even more critical.

    So I'll come out and say it. If you are worrying about primers going stale, you aren't practicing enough. RF ammo isn't so expensive that you can't afford to practice with it and rotate it regularly. Defensive shooting is a perishable skill, and if you're worried about primers dying, you need to shoot it a LOT more than you are. If it's a backup/emergency gun, you need to be even BETTER with it, because when you need it, everything else has already gone wrong.

    NAA are great little mouse guns and backup guns if your primary carry is out of reach (such as in a purse for women). I carry one to the gym inside an arm band with my phone/music.

    The problem with them is holsters for them are slim pickings because they are so small. NAA makes quiet a few holsters for their little guns for pocket, IWB and ankle carry.

    Many years ago I made my own holster for my 1 5/8" NAA .22 Mag. Actually I made a pocket and a belt holster. Doesn't sound like what you are looking for though.

    The NAA is a great little quality gun, I carry mine more than any other handgun.

    I could list the reasons, but they would look like the same reasons anyone else would list for carrying. You and I both know that there are better choices for a ccw. However, these little NAAs are so small that you can carry just about anywhere. It is in my vest pocket right now.
    These little guns are top quality and fun to shoot. I will admit that one reason I carry it is just to plink with.
