    They are great little pocket guns. You can even tuck it into the rolled up part of a beanie cap. Being that it is single action you can slightly pull the trigger back to the first lock. This is the safety.
    I have two of the 22lr's. One was my Fathers, the other I got so I wouldn't have to carry his. His no longer get carried due to sentimental value. So my vote is YES, just not one for $450.00. That is way too much!

    He probably had the hammer sitting on the loaded chamber. If he snagged the hammer with his keys and pulled the trigger, or just hit the hammer hard enough, he could have set it off accidentally. There are notches between the chambers where you're supposed to rest the hammer to prevent the latter.
    Oh therapy, can you please fill the void? Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed?

    Price was about $450. I can't think of a rational reason to buy it, and I probably couldn't hit the side of the barn shooting from the inside, but it sure looked cool.
    For that price I'd sooner have the 2.5" Ranger II. But even then that's too much money for a novelty. I think I paid $90 for my NAA Mini.

    His keys were also in pocket and while fumbleing around for them cocked the piece and hit the trigger !

    In regards to the price, unfortunately the case hardening and the rosewood grip really make the firearm for me, so buying a cheaper model just would not satisfy.

    I've wasted more money than this before, so I'm not going to lose sleep over $400.

    I just imagine drawing it on someone, and then having to convince them that it's a real gun.

    If you want one go ahead and buy it, who cares if its pointless or not. With that said I wouldn't pay $450 for it, looks cool but not $450 cool.

    I carry a plain jane model quite often. It's better than nothing. The noise alone would stop somebody, they're quite loud. If you can afford it go for it.

    LOL That's how I feel every time I put my Kel Tec P32 in my pocket. "If I ever had to draw this thing, would anyone actually believe it's a real gun?"

    Well hell if you can keep your shots between lower lip and center of eyes and between the cheek bones across the card table or inside of the elevator they're as good as any!
