    .22 Mag for self defense

    I’m not advocating it for anyone who can handle a more powerful round, but for those who can’t, it may be a viable solution with the right ammunition:

    I'll regularly carry my NAA 22mag PUG in my pocket. When exiting stores into parking lots, it's easily concealed/palmed with no notice, but instantly available as the first line of defense at bad breath should someone suddenly appear/pop up from behind a parked car with ill intent. Tactic will be to fire one round at near or at point blank to the face, drop it and draw the belt gun.

    Forethought goes a long way, think outside the box.

    Brownie, I’ve considered buying one of those for some time now. Any recommendation on barrel length you prefer?

    Get the PUG 22mag, it's got a big enough grip/rubber to hold onto, but not too much/easily palmed. I went with the big dot tritium model, as I think it's use will likely be during the night time hours.

    Got it thanks. I was wondering if sights are even necessary for what it is designed for? Bad breath distance for a face shot as you say. I saw the two different options. I also saw Hickok45 do a review on these a long time back and his struggles with the grip with his meat cleaver hands.
