MUCH better than no gun at all, as many BG have been finding, to their
dismay, for a VERY LONG time. ENOUGH capacity to get the initial job done, and an
easy reload. Poor handling, and non-existant sights might mean something if SD
weren't at POINT BLANK range. And please show me some better
choices, sir, that are the same size, or smaller, than a derringer...

I made t mistake of letting my brother in law buy my NAA mini but i am most likely going to get another but this time with the conversion cylinder for .22 lr. I am considering the lcr in .357 for a primary though a compact 9 could also be an option. Does anyone have any reviews of the sig p38 or kimber solo?

While I like the 1911, the Beretta 92 has a great safety

system, too. S&W made a couple of .45s(like the 645) with

the same DA/SA/decocker as the 92.

Revolvers, IMO, seem to lend themselves more to open carry.
full size revolvers can be a pain to conceal [it is possible though], snubbies are far easier to hide, but can be more pain to shoot [most pocket size guns of adequate power will be], a used s&w 36 in .38 spl is a great breeze to shoot, while still being easily concealed, and used is more affordable yet still reliable. [personally i carry a 4" .357 magnum]
