Sootch00 did a review of these on Youtube. It is similar to the NAA mini revolvers, comes in .22 mag with a 1/2" barrel. The innovative thing is that it folds into the handle, then opens like a switchblade knife. Last ditch - "get off me!" gun, but kinda interesting. soocth00 complains about poor accuracy at 7 yards, but, for real, I couldn't see using it for anything more than contact range. Still, it's an interesting video, if you're interested in oddball guns.

Super similar to the NAA 22LR HG. They traded in the belt clip on the NAA for a spring assisted deployment.

I was thinking the same thing. idK if the spring assist would be any real benefit in that close an encounter or not
OTOH, did someone reinvent the wheel(gun) and cut down the barrel?

Below is a Lenovo .25 ACP(!!) double action 5 shot revolver with folding trigger and folding grip.

everything old is new again. Don't suppose you have one of these in your collection?

In my opinion it's a liability as I consider that spring and catch system as the most likely points of failure. Catch/spring breaks, it's now permanently deployed until it's repaired. Spring breaks, you have a 50/50 shot that it isn't jammed in the closed position or it's now a manual folder, just like the NAA. Plus, if the spring is what holds everything in alignment once deployed, now your trying to aim a piece of cooked spaghetti at a bad guy.

If we're that close, I'm going for my knife, because that revolver is a single action only so I've got to draw it, deploy it, cock it, and then fire it as compared to flicking my wrist and having a 9oz fist-loaded weapon with a 3.5" half serrated half tanto blade that I've sharpened to shaveable sharp on one end with a very nasty glass breaker attached to a large striking surface on the other. And it has a belt clip.

It's cool as a novelty though...

I agree with Rach. To much to go wrong. My gun needs to be idiot proof. And that close I can stick you before you get it out.

Yeah, I don't think anyone would advocate a weapon that small and tedious to deploy to be an EDC. Its primary attraction is ease of concealment and light weight. And yes, the novelty. But at just under 8 oz loaded with 5 .22WMR it does pack a punch in a small package.

Been there, done that. Got the NAA.
You might be able to pay me to take a NAA but no way in heck, I'm gonna buy one.

Peace favor your sword,

I like mouse guns, but I've never needed that level of concealment on or off duty.
At times I have to go to events in chef wear and sometimes a suit or tux. It's nice to have it then. My LCPII 380 would be a better choice but in clothing like loose chef clothes or a tux, it would still be a bit heavy. And something is better than nothing.

Not that you're an idiot, but Murphy's Law tends to pop up in high stress situations...
Hey stupid we all know what the saying and references mean. Ypu don't have to post just to post. And you are an idiot. So you're better off with a stick. Lol

A backup 5 shot snubbie in an ankle holster has usually done the trick for me.

I wear long pants just about everywhere, even pj bottoms when I sleep.

The multitude of scars on my legs are a major turnoff for the women I associate with - no need to terrorize them.

I'm thinking of buying a Taurus .327 magnum for backup to my Taurus G3.
