I have tried a number of guns for concealed carry. Being a short little old lady who rarely carried a purse, I needed something that would be safe, small, accurate, and still have enough punch to do the job. After trying a 9mm, a couple of .380's, a .38 Spec, and the NAA 1 5/8th combo with holster grip, I settled on this little gem. Red orange nail polish on the front site helped my accuracy tremendously. People with larger hands might find this difficult to hold, but for me, it is perfect. The .22LR cylinder makes target practice inexpensive and the mag is saved for carry. The half cock safety notch allows carrying all 5 cartriges. This gun is so small, a woman can even conceal it in her bra. It has the look and feel of quality with the dependability of a revolver and the size that can go virtually anywhere!
