I wonder if they'll sell them on Ebay like they do with the confiscated knives and scissors they get ?

I think we've redefined "mouse gun".

Either that or we've redefined what a dumb idea is.

I wonder how long it'll be before we get the first reports of people accidentally shooting either themselves or their property with this thing.

ETA: I wonder if that 'gun' will fit inside a Zippo lighter case.

Interesting... Price is up there, though (or at least the MSRP)

I'll be keeping an eye out for reviews and the like

Note, they're still using (suggesting?) a pocket holster.

A .32 ACP version of this would be a lot more interesting.

Cool, a single action single shot. Cutting edge technology, if you're Wyatt Earp. What does this thing do that an NAA mini doesn't? Besides more manipulation before firing and more frequent reloading of course.

Agreed, you could almost buy two NAA 22lr derringers for that price, then you have one for each pocket :D

Laughed at comments. Not trying to sell it. I saw the info about it and thought to share because I like when people have an idea and pursue it so strongly that they can make it come about. Also, because it will be fun to read the first time someone posts in the DAY of EDC VICTORY thread about how it saved their life and drove them to get a tattoo of Wyatt Earp wearing a large tactical backpack with an elite carry frame on their neck.

I tend to agree, but a discussion about a gimmick with regard to business, marketing and sales could take weeks here or anywhere. Somewhere, in a classroom, I believe I was once taught to think of it as an 'intercambiar' but I think that is frowned upon here so I will leave it alone.

I don't disagree with you - it was my first thought too - but for the sake of arguement, even the NAA Mini is 0.88" thick, this is much less (relatively) at only 0.5".

The added capability and, dare I say it, "ergos", of the mini for the extra .38" inches seems to make it the better choice, but who knows.

I do think it's kind of cool in spite of being useless, kind of like the old Stinger pen guns. Those things were simultaneously useless and really cool.

This! QFT


When I first saw this I had the following thought process:

Wow! This is neat!. I want one!

There are a lot of things I can do with it that my other fire arms can't!

Like...??? and...????

Ok ... I cannot think of a practical use for it. But I still want one!

That thought process is how I ended up with a Mosin-Nagant years ago. :lol:

The only value I can see is with 22lr tracer ammo in a last ditch "oh crap! I need help" survival kit. Drop it in a tiny Pelican waterproof case with a bunch of rounds and use it wishfully if you misplace your boat at sea or your feet on land.

It'll make noise and light even from a ravine or wave trough.

Maybe that'll help. :words:

I love the innovation; the idea is reminiscent of the old "Liberator" pistol, just with a much more anemic cartridge choice. The price is likely the result of invested R&D and manufacturing, but I would probably pick one up if it was a couple hundred dollars cheaper. Although it doesn't "look as cool", the diminutive NAA offerings at least give you 22WRM choices and 5-shots in a similar-sized package.

I guess if you were in a clandestine and risky occupation, the ultra concealment option would be appealing, but for most of us, it's just a pretty cool conversation piece for the range. Again, I love the innovative idea, but question the purpose for my own needs; wants are far different then needs when it comes to CCW.

As a side note, I had a mission that rotated me between Lima, Peru and Quito, Ecuador every month for about six months. We flew military aircraft and bypassed the regular airport security. We couldn't take our issued firearms of course as we were staying either in civilian hotels or smaller host-nation military compounds inside city limits. We were free to roam outside our mission requirements and I was able to "add" a NAA revolver to my packing list and pocket carry for emergencies. This was the time when the Japanese Embassy was attacked in Peru and tensions were pretty high. This was the perfect niche for an emergency, close range, hostage-avoidance situation...disposable if needed as well.
