Single Action (re-cock hammer after each trigger pull) MINI revolver
As with every NAA Mini-Revolver, the hammer need not rest on an empty chamber. Using the original half-way notch cylinder, the hammer may rest safely and securely without chance of accidental discharge with all FIVE ROUNDS loaded.
• Caliber: .22 Magnum
• Capacity: 5
• Material: 17-4 pH stainless steel
• Barrel Length: 1 1/8"
• Overall Length: 4 3/4" (to get an idea of how small it really is, it nests/hides comfortably in the curled palm of even a fairly small hand with fore and middle finger extended).
• Overall Height: 2 7/8"
• Width: 7/8"
• Weight: 5.9 oz. unloaded
Most handgun calibers travel from around 950 feet per second (fps) for a .45 to around 1400 fps or so for mid-size calibers.
The .22 magnum is a very high speed bullet and travels at around 2,000 fps.
Two useful bullet styles have hollow points, one with a silicone plug to retain speed and accuracy and the other (TNT) is sometimes called a “surgeon’s nightmare” as it shrapnels on entry and causes such widespread collateral damage where it impacts that it’s very hard to repair the damage medically.
The very compact grip shown above can be easily replaced by a folding one (optional purchase, shown below) which retains the small overall profile but expands (folds and locks out and button releases back) for larger hands and an overall steadier grasp.
The either side belt clip on it serves as a built in left or right side holster.
Though not generally needed for most likely short range use, the laser sight (optional) helps out in hard to see/aim or longer range situations.
Remember, when using the laser sight in defending yourself do NOT try to over-steady it on the target. You are trying to save your life not achieve a tight group in target practise, so once the red dot appears somewhere around the target area - anywhere - in the center of the chest, for example, FIRE!
With this single action revolver, "double tapping" (firing two shots rapidly one after the other) the usual instruction for lasers on double action or semi-automatic weapons, may not be easy but can be practised. So if you can, once the red dot is roughly centered on the general target FIRE, then FIRE again!
BUT remember this. The target (a person or animal) can also see your laser and thus knows where you are, so it's not a concealed shot - day or night and, if it's a person, they can shoot back at your laser source even if you are camouflaged or hiding.
If your life is in danger and you are perhaps struggling with your attacker, specially a woman facing a much bigger stronger assailant, the easiest, most lethal action is to stick the revolver into his armpit and pull the trigger.
Most probably you will never need a second shot.
The armpit is a major nerve nexus where even a well placed blow or kick can disable an opponent let alone what a tearing, twisting bullet would do .
Somewhat like disabling your opponent in a martial arts style by a full strength clenched fist blow to the BLADDER (more effective than the testicles). If you have ever been in a fight and slammed the stiffened upper edge of your hand into the testicles of your aggressor, you may have been surprised how long a worked up or high on drugs attacker can fight on before he feels the pain and stops. This can be several minutes, by which time you may have been fatally wounded/damaged.
Strong blows to the bladder area (of male or female) are almost instantly debilitating and more certain to stop a fight then and there.
