    Naa .22lr

    I have had 3 NAA revolvers. I gave the last .22LR to my mother-in-law. The first two were .22 magnum. They are apparently easy to lose in a purse. I have found the .22LR fits in the change pocket of my jeans and is undetectable.

    Most gunfights happen within 10 feet, or so I have been told. My Dad has been a phenom with point shooting all his life. He believes placement is key to effectiveness of any caliber. He was an international champion for years. Now in his 70s, he still outshoots the federal enforcement agents he shoots along side. He currently carries a Sig 229 in .357sig at times and a NAA .22LR with rat shot as the first round.

    What do you think about the rat shot idea at 10 feet?

    Don't own one. Rented one a couple of times. It is an interesting gun. Has its place in the grand scheme of gun ownership.
    It is bit awkward to handle because it is so small, but you can't beat it for something to keep concealed and handy.

    I like the 22 Mag; maybe not a real rational position to take, but I do really like it. I wish more manufacturers made more models for it.

    If you have a serious rat problem, sure. If you think it's going to do anything but enrage an attacker, you're nuts. Rat shot won't do anything to a man but send his adrenal gland into overdrive.
    I wouldn't want a .22LR for SD purposes, especially not in a single action revolver. .22LR CAN be a lethal round, and I'm sure someone here knows a website giving statistics to back that up, but the general purpose of a self defense weapon is to STOP an attack. A round that MIGHT make your attacker bleed out 30 minutes after the attack is over is not a very good option.

    I own an NAA Mini .22 magnum. It's a good little piece and fun to shoot. The reloading is the worst part if my arthritis is flaring.

    I saw a guy in a pawnshop,and we got to discussing concealed carry,back when Ks first started issuing licenses,It got around to what do you carry,he pulled out his NAA 22 mag and it was his primary.I thought wow how cute,I personally would not trust my life to one,and anywhere I can legally carry,I can conceal something with more effectiveness than a 22 magnum,My smallest gun is a Keltec P11 12+1 9mm

    I am looking to buy a NAA 22 mag. I am wanting it mostly to shoot snake shot.
    i wonder if there would be much difference in performance between the 1 1/8 vs 1 5/8 barrels?

    I carried a Black Widow with small grips as a BUG for years. My primary was a 1911 so I carried the NAA and a spare 1911 mag in my back pocket so they held each other in place. I eventually replaced it with a Kel Tec .32.

    My ex carried one in .22 as a BUG when she was an LEO, fit it into a handcuff case. Her agency changed the rules on BUGs so she went to a bigger gun. Hers was ammo sensitive and keyholed with very fast ammo, mine shoots anything.

    I would carry it again if I had to. I load it with snakeshot and JHP and carry it as a woods or mountain bike gun somerimes.

    I carried one so much as a BUG when I was an LEO that I wore through two sets of grips. I could always tell when it was time for new ones. The grip screw would start sticking me in the buttocks. I still carry it as a BUG to my Colt 1911 but I have replaced the wood grips with the oversized rubber ones. The .22 magnum is a decent round for last ditch defense and the NAA will conceal where even the smallest semi will not.

    I see Hornady has announced an FTX Critical Defense load for the .22 mag. They claim 100 FPE from a snub barrel. That puts it in the same class (as far as energy goes) as a .380 from a Kel Tec.

    I have the PUG i s22mag. It's my lawn mowering / yard work gun. 2 rounds bird shot for snakes (which I do not like) and 3 rounds of 40 gr solids for miscellanious critters.
