    In .22 Mag, it looks like MSRP is $236 for the basic model, and $350 for the Sidewinder swing-out cylinder model.

    I can see the appeal, but if used for defensive purposes, I'm not sure how much a Sidewinder would help. It seems to me the proper use for such a firearm is "shoot BG in the face and then run."

    I saw that, AND thought you were referring to your stomach as "THE 500 MAGNUM!"

    You could shoot the .22 pistol out of that 500.

    I bought my 1 5/8" .22 Mag model in 1999. At the time, I was on a standard cycle for pulling brigade equivalent Staff Duty Officer (SDO), and that entailed significant middle-of-the night solo roaming of isolated motor pools and questionable barracks. There may or may not be a connection there.

    Since then, my NAA has by far the most duty hours of any of my carry guns. I am contemplating getting the wooden boot grip for enhanced shootability.

    I've inspected the original version (remove cylinder and use base pin to poke out the empties) and the Sidewinder (swing-out cylinder). Personally, I prefer the original. The lock-up and release of the swing-out cylinder doesn't feel nearly as solid as that of the original version.

    I was going to get the Sidewinder, but it costs significantly more, and the cylinder swings out the "wrong" way, so it really wouldn't be much faster to reload.

    I have the .22 LR version, and adding the folding grip really does make it much more shootable. Interestingly, I find I am more accurate point shooting it than trying to use the sights.

    The break-top version does look interesting.

    Carry a sidearm always. Be able to put shots into the torso and then head, if needed. The rest is much less important.

    100% agree with you regarding the point shooting vs aiming. I was not aware of the sidewinder model until today but I looked up the price and agree I would of still bought the one I purchased. Iím completely satisfied with the little thing! Kinda loud with no ear pro but that couldíve been expected.

    Ah the NAA belt buckle gun. In the '80s or the '90s you either had one or were so far behind in the race you thought you were in front. I bet they made a fortune with those things.

    Everyone should have at least one. They are the true go anywhere handgun and follow the first rule. Always bring a gun. Mine is a .22LR. I need to pick up a .22Mag as a litter mate.
