Default NAA Pug

I picked up a Pug with Trijicon night sights and 5 boxes of .22mag Gold Dots today. Anyone know about these Pugs or the Gold Dot ammo? Any tips or tricks you could offer me? Thanks!

IIRC, you will want to make use of the "safety notches" in that cylinder to prevent potential parts perforation.

It is better in your pocket than the 9mm in your car.

I now NAA has a great reputation and there mini-revolvers are fun to shoot. Though I've never shot the pug, I'm sure it's a fine gun. Your lucky you could find .22 WMR ammo! The gold dots were excellent out of my rifle.

Thanks Orange. I just read about the safety notches in the manual. I got it as a BUG for my BUG and as a deep concealment BUG when I'm forced to carry my LCP as my primary(when wearing dress slacks).

My problem now is finding target ammo. I don't want to use up all my Gold Dots for practice and plinking. I did read in the manual not to use any PMC .22mag because it will fire off more than one bullet at a time, scary.

I read on the GD box that it's optimized for a two inch barrel. I wonder how it will perform in the Pug's one inch barrel.

I have a NAA mini in 22 Mag. It is not the Pug. But it is very similar. It is a very well built gun. The workmanship is top notch in my opinion. I can shoot pop cans at 10 yards with mine. With 22lr it is easy to shoot. With 22 mag it is a handful. Do you have both cylinders for yours? I carry mine in a homemade leather pocket holster when I am bicycling or at the gym. It is great for that.

I don't have the .22LR cylinder, it just came with the magnum cylinder. I can't complain though. I got a smoking deal for the Trijicon Pug NIB and 5 boxes of Gold Dots. How much is the .22LR cylinder and how hard is it to get? My LGS said this model of Pug is really hard to get.

I have the one with the 4" barrel, fits in my boot as well as easily concealed elsewhere. If you can find one box of target ammo it should last awhile as reloading is slow.

You are going to have to keep an eye on ammoseek and the other ammo search engines. I haven't come close to running out of 22 wmr ammo but it's a long time between 22 wmr ammo purchases. I got 500 rounds from bass pro shops. Then Widners had a deal on Remington JSP ammo. I got 2,000 rounds of the Remington ammo. By and large Remington ammo sucks but they make some the best 22 wmr JSP ammo you can find.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm not familiar with .22wmr ammo. I know that any ammo with Gold Dot on the box is good, so that's why I bought 5 boxes of it.
