    I've been thinking one of these little revolvers might be good for "safe" suburban walks where the biggest concern is an untethered vicious dog, and as a BUG-BUG where weight and size are paramount.

    Anyone shot one of these, either the Wasp or the regular mini-mag, and care to comment?

    I have had the NAA Pug for a few months now and I do carry it and it's loaded with the Hornady's Critical Defense ammo and it shoots nice and recoil isn't bad. Along with my Ruger SP101 and 2 speedloaders I carry,the Pug goes in my vest pocket as a backup to the SP101 2.25 inch barrel.

    I've got the NAA Black Widow which is the one with about a 2.5" barrel and bigger grips. It also has adjustable sights.

    Mine will shoot pretty darned well for it's size and with bird shot is great for snakes. I had posted a picture of a target I'd shot with it a while back when someone else was asking about these, I'll see if I can dig it up.

    I love the looks of the Wasp.

    I carry an NAA mini in 22 mag. Well made and great for concealment.
    I never go anywhere without it and its always with me in the house. ;)

    My mini-mag is the gun I carry when I can't carry a gun. Great engineering, works evey time. 22 Mag Hornady V-max in it right now.

    My word SpaceEplorer31, you shot yourself! That had to suck. Please tell me it wasn't an inherent flaw in the gun. I know NNA talks about how it can be carried with the wheel in a halfway notch position, that sounds safe to me. I'm guessing it's a SA only too which should make AD/ND quite difficult.

    It was completely my fault for not obeying the rules and boy I was in pain for 2 weeks. The round went 6" through my belly and abdominal wall down ward and exited. I was wearing a tshirt and when it came out it brought with it a lot of small pieces of fat and blood.
