    I sell quite a few of these... (at least when I can get them, LOL).......From the comments and responses I get from the buyers, I can tell you that the majority of the sell is driven more by novelty rather than practicality. Not always, but usually.

    They're more of an "in your face" weapon than a target pistol.

    As far as practicality... a .22mag Pug doesn't pull down my sweatpants when I'm going to the mailbox.

    They are well made. However, I can't hit shinola with mine in either the 22LR or the 22WMR. Maybe the one I've got has a barrel made by Jack Elam.....

    I had a 22 mag NAA, I put shot shells in it. It was for dogs when riding my bike. I soon figured out pepper spray was a much better option and sold the thing. Way too small for me, I'd have to be so close a knife may be a better option.

    I have a Berretta 21 A and find it surprisingly accurate and it has NEVER had a malfunction that wasn't due to cheap, bulk, sorry ammo. As long as I feed it CCI, I trust the little bugger.

    I agree totally on the 21a. Like you, I have had a few failures to fire on some old rounds in the bottom of a bulk box. I try to keep a supply of CCI Stingers and Mini-Mags.

    In fact, as I am sitting here in a Houston mall, waiting for lovely bride and daughter, my 21a is in my pocket, like American Express.

    I had a NAA 22 mini pistol and later sold it. I paid $125 used, from a guy at work ,about 15 years ago. Never could hit the broadside of a barn with it.

    I find it easy to practice with, and carrying in my boot is something I like. Sometimes when I'm flying out the door, I'll tuck it in a pocket and go. Being easy to take out at work is essential. I've gotten to really like these little guns.

    I needed a .22 pistol for my EDC/go-bag and found this sitting in my LGS for about a month for $199.95. It's a PT-22 with Rosewood grips and 2 #MAGAzines made Feb. 17, 2010. Never had an issue with it. No, it's not for sale. I keep a Henry AR-7 in my bug-out/travel bag.
