    Welcome to the forum, when you get a minute, swing by the intro thread and introduce yourself.

    You have any pics or links on this neck holster? I would have to say that, no, I probably wouldn't trust it. I kinda have this thing about guns pointed at my head.

    If you want to carry that small of a gun while jogging, I would say to check out the belly band. I don't have a link, but a quick googling will show you what I'm talking about.

    Edit: ah, thank you. I'm looking now.

    Yeah, I checked out that link. In my opinion, not just no, but "oh hell mother effing no!!!"

    It looks like it's worn as a necklace, offering no security or stability at all, other than friction retention. Plus, as you mentioned, it's carrying a gun pointed at your face.

    No, no, there are better options out there. I would duct tape it to my wrist before using that thing (don't do that, I'm being sarcastic)

    I have never considered hanging any sort of weapon around my neck. I looked at the photo and it took .00034 seconds to stop considering it.

    Look into Flash Bang holsters. There were some posts on them.

    it looks as though you could move the rope so that it is sideways anot right at your head. i still dont like it and would advise against it!. there are better, safer choices.

    If that is a Taurus PT22, do not shoot any hyper velocity in it like Stingers and only load 8 in the mag. You wont gain anything and it will wreck the pistol. Voids the warranty too. Use Mini Mag 40 grain solids or other top quality 40 grain solids. Hollow points wont expand anyway and you need all the penetration you can get. You are only going to get about 850 fps. Mine lasted 19 years before it broke and Taurus replaced it. One of the two good ones I had.

    May I, at this time, offer a contrasting opinion. (of course I can, and better than most :) )

    Chamber empty, hammer down, hammer retained with holster strap look darn safe to me.

    Any firearm that is larger or heavier........ WHY?

    After 17 years of daily CCW I can honestly say I'd never considered this...HOWEVER, unlike most responses here, I find no problem with idea depending on what gun you intend to carry.

    If we are talking about a DA Only or SA/DA Carried in DA MODE, then I see no problem with it.

    Many of the detractors here carry DA guns in pocket holster pointing at there Femoral Arteries or there JUNK without a second thought so I'm a little confused by the negative feedback?

    Personally, were I a woman wanting to carry while jogging or around the house with the kids, I would look for something exactly like his. Preferably one that could be clipped underneath a brazier, between the cleavage.

    Having the grip down and muzzle up would allow you to draw by reaching up your short rather than trying to get a hand down the neckline...

    Seems to make perfect sence to me and again, as long as your packing in DA mode and the holster completely covers the trigger, I see no issue.

    Good luck

    Tack

    I own the NAA Mini, and I advise every NAA Mini owner to read their manual.

    There is a safety mechanism for carrying the mini's cylinder fully chambered that is explained in the manual that came with your NAA. The mini revolver may be carried with all five charge holes loaded and the hammer resting on the safety notch in between the loaded chambers.

    With the hamer resting on the safety notch, your mini should look like the picture below:

    It is impossible for an accidental discharge when the Mini is like this, safe enough even for a necklace that points the barrel of your NAA straight up your chin.

    I cannot handle a firearm that I know for a fact is unloaded ( just reassembled or flashlight check) pointed at me.
