I don't know about any of you, but I sure as hell don't want to be shot with .22mag. Or .22lr for that matter. I think that would be a kickass pocket pistol and summer carry option.

Ya did good.

My only concern is, rim-fires aren't as reliable as center-fires. Although if one round doesn't LIGHT UP... I can just move to the next one. After all... it is a five-shot.

I have put several thousand rounds through my .22LR mini-revolver and I've not had a single mis-fire. So hopefully my .22 Magnum is at least that reliable. My NAA PUG really is convenient to carry. It leaves little or no imprint, it's very light weight, and fast to draw if needed. While it's no secret that .22 Magnums aren't hi-powered man stoppers... I certainly wouldn't want to be on the business end of it, especially Polymer tipped Magnums. They create really nasty wounds...

I have a good collection of carry guns: LCR, LCP, P3AT, M60, UltraLite 38 +P, Air-lite 44 Magnum, Tokarev 7.62, and several others. However NONE of them are as concealable & handy as my little PUG.

I have both a Pug and a Black Widow. Either will disappear in a pocket and are accurate with practice. I put a Black Widow grip on the Pug. It is much easier to shoot and control with the larger grip.

I have the NAA with the folding grip, carry it in my left front pocket. Looks like a pocket knife, after adding the folding grip (mine did not come with it) it did improve accuracy a bit as well as handling.

I got out to the gun-range yesterday, and put 100 rounds through my NAA PUG. Not a single mis-fire! It's accurate to about 15 feet, so it's an up-close n' personal weapon. It's a lot of fun to shoot!

Glad you like it! I plan on getting a Pug one day to go along with my regular mini.
