    Smallest for me is a S&W Shield. I remain tempted, however, by a Ruger LCP II.

    I think my smallest is my mom's Beretta 1950 in .22 short.

    Had a Belgium made baby Browning .25 auto, and stupidly sold it. Smallest now is a Freedom Arms .22 in the belt buckle and an NAA .22, that in a kydex holster on a neck cord, both 5 shot LRs

    Smallest, strangest; a Bernardelli Baby in .22 Long. Not Long Rifle, Long. It would be hard to feed now, but back then, ammo could be had about anywhere.

    Not the smallest around, but I do like this little .22 S&W Model 61. Good shooter for what it is.

    NAA mini in 22mag. One of the few firearms I regret selling. Even with the small grip I was quite accurate with it. Shooting 20oz bottles at 7-10 yards was pretty entertaining.

    I must say its my Ruger SP 101....I can handle the recoil with no discomfort at all even shooting .357 hollow point....I can even conceal it when I wear a loose blouse. I really don't like recoil so it suits me to a tee

    My smallest, also the heaviest trigger pull of any firearm (18 lbs).

    I keep hoping they will do another run of them so I can get one to go with the 21A 22 and 3032.

    I had an RG 5-shot .22 revolver with a wobbly pinned barrel. If I oriented it correctly, it would lay on my palm without overlapping. My current general EDC is a Ruger LC9s, and it's not a lot larger than that RG was.

    I've had a Beretta Bobcat in .22...well two of them. Beretta Tomcat in .32 and many, many years ago a Browning .25 cal that I traded a guy for my first Bobcat.

    I have always wanted to get the .22 short version of the NAA mini but I can barely hold onto the .22lr version so going smaller doesn't make any sense.

    I have VERY long fingers (2XL gloves) and the Hogue grip on my Beretta is just about to big for me. I love Hoge and Pachmeyer finger grove rubber grips because I get a better grip on the hand gun and better control with less grip effort. I think I might go back to the stock grips on my Beretta though. I love the finger groove grips on my 1911's and don't think I would own a 1911 without them!

    P.S. For comparison I have absolutely no problem with the size of the Grip on my Desert Eagle L5!
