"The right to buy weapons is the right to be free." A. E. van Vogt
I bought one 20 yrs ago, (22 lr) I also bought a neck holster for it, it just hangs on your chest until needed.
Like Hickory said, if you have large hands, its harder to manipulate.
I bought mine because I heard of a policeman that carry's one in a hard pack of Marlboro's in his shirt pocket.
It saved his life when he was unarmed in a armed robbery at a gas station and the BG came back to check on him or finish him off, he shot the BG guy with the FA 22 and went home at the end of the day to his family.
That's called being smoked by a boro !
A person once told me that the freedom arms 22 is a mouse gun and that a knife was better in his opinion, so I asked him if he would like to shoot himself in the leg with it and see if that was true.
He passed on the idea..

I got mine in .22LR over 30 years ago. I believe the last times I carried it was when working disaster relief after the hurricanes in ‘04. Agency staff were absolutely not allowed to have firearms of any kind while working, or in District vehicles. It hid very nicely in a zippered wallet in my pocket, and of course, no one had any idea.
It still lives in that wallet.
As indicated, I too have a Pug. I was an expert in a case involving a drop fire that caused an older diabetic gent to lose a leg.
It’s the only revolving cylinder weapon made in the last century with the notches Brownie discussed. They call for violation of our basic safety rules to load and they can have the hammer move during jostling around in the pocket. If hit or dropped in that condition it will fire unexpectedly.
The “holster grip” they call it is useless as a safety feature in my opinion and creates a false sense of security.
I carried one too like Brownie or a high standard derringer in a wallet holster. Nice little revolvers that need special care/awareness to carry.
I remember those hi-standards and the wallets with the hole for the trigger finger, so it could be fired while contained within the holster. I believe that those wallets may be illegal to use now unless proper paperwork and tax stamp is performed (like a suppressor).
Beyond stupid, I know...
