(I posted this about a year ago and got no replies, so I'm trying again.)

I was wondering if anybody had any experience, thoughts or comments on the North American Arms Companion (http://www.naaminis.com/naac%26b.html) (and here (http://www.naaminis.com/civilcb.html)) cap & ball / blackpowder mini-revolver.

Thanks.

A great little gun for protection against vicous mice.

Seriously, I figure the NAA is fine for recreational shooting, it should be relatively cheap to shoot, fun, and a great conversation piece. Unfortunately I fear that some people might try to use it as a pocket pistol for defense where I feel it is totally out of it's element. The reports I have read show that they are severely lacking in stopping power and even in the cartridge versions they are somewhat difficult to control rapidly and accurately. Though I guess it might be better than nothing, it all depends on how accurate you can be with it.
