    I don't know if I ever commented on this thread, but I have a S&W 61-3 Escort in the back of the safe because I can't get it to run right. I'd love to carry that thing around in a pocket.

    Why get a pocket 22 when you can get a Pocket AK?

    Buying this platform also allows you to interchange 45lc/410 and 223 barrels. You could also get their similarly sized 5 shot semi auto 45acp.

    Something I have been wondering about. I assume all pistols with tip up barrels, like the Beretta 86 and the one in the picture above and the little Taurus 22s, don't have extractors. So if you go through a normal semi-auto unloading process by removing the magazine and then racking the slide and you don't use the tip up barrel feature, then after you rack the slide, isn't the gun still loaded? I know you should look to be sure and you should probably use the tip up feature on these but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm just wondering about the mechanics of unloading. Maybe they don't work the way I think they do.

    Don't know about the others but on my Taurus PT-22 you are not going to eject a round by racking the slide. It's extremely stiff, and difficult to get a grip on it to pull back. It can be done but only with great effort, and probably not without getting your hand in front of the muzzle to grab the front part of the slide. After one or two attempts, you're going to tip the barrel up, and this is how they are designed to work.

    To answer your question, you're correct, the round will not eject, if you point the muzzle upward with the slide held back it may or may not fall out.

    Now someone is going to come along and say they do it all the time and I must have a weak grip, and they won't be wrong. :pms2:

    Realize this is an old thread, just wanted to add I have two NAA mini 22lr. Always carry one in my boot. Had to modify the Ryman boot holster I use, but it's still a really nice holster.

    What is the attraction to the NAA mini's? I know they are quite popular, but they feel way too small for me, I can't get a decent grip and cock the hammer. I'm not being snarky about them, I'm curious to hear from actual owners. They are novel, and seem to be very well made, but I can't find a question that they answer for me.

    I have a Beretta 21a that is about as small as I can handle with any accuracy.
