NAA .22 mini mag
Who has this gun? Is the interchangeable chamber option worth the extra money? Does the 1 & 5/8 barrel have any performance efficiencies over the 1 & 1/8? How does the pocket carry compare to the Ruger LCP sized semi's?

I like the second cylinder. Allows for cheap plinking and practice. Very easy to pocket carry. I like the holster grip for pocket carry. Also allows better grip on the gun.

I would spend the extra money for the black widow. In a 3" barrel a 22 WMR isn't going to make a huge difference. CCI makes the short barrel 22wmr which is loaded with pistol powder but it's not even close to a 22wmr rifle that delivers 300 foot pounds of energy. A 22 wmr is better than nothing.

Black Widow has a 2" barrel. I do like it better than the standard Magnum Mini.

I've had an NAA Mini for about a year, and love it. I only use it as a walking around the house / taking out the trash / get the f### off of me gun. With modern .22 mag self defense ammo, I feel confident that it would enable me to fight my way to my full caliber defense firearms. I have the short barrel and at about 10 feet, I get 12-14 inches penetration and full expansion out to about 9mm in water jugs. The ammo I use is Federal TNT or Speer Gold Dot.

I have the pug and I love it. Its smaller then my cell phone and keys. You forget it's in your pocket or waistband its so small. I Carry mine as a backup or when I'm cycling or at the gym. And its surprisingly accurate out to 25ft. Its tiny but packs a punch and is loud as hell.

I have the one with the interchangable cylinders. Realy well made gun. I must say though dont plan on rapid firing it with the mag cylinder. It is pretty hard to hang on to. It doesnt fly out of your hand or anything like that. But you have to hold on tight. And that second shot is going to take a few extra seconds.

I have one with the 1 5/8" barrel and both cylinders. Mine's got the standard black rubber grip. I consider it little more than a novelty. Mine hasn't been out of the safe in a couple of years. On the other hand, a Keltec P3AT is an almost constant companion.

I have a .22Mag, 1-5/8" barrel, no interchangeable cylinder. I think the .22LR cylinder would be worth having for the economical target practice that it would allow. As for the gun, it seldom is out of my pocket. It is so unobtrusive, I usually just keep it in my back pocket regardless of what else I may be carrying. The folding stock makes the gun easier to use without making it too bulky. I hope I never have to go to my NAA as a 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd resort, but I'd rather have it than not.
