NAA Mini revolver fifth pocket carry

I recently purchased a NAA mini revolver in 22 mag. Really cool little gun! I want to use this as a back up gun to my EDC. I have been walking around the house with it -unloaded- in my 5th jeans pocket (the "zippo pocket"). It fits in there perfectly!



Only drawing it is a pain (it snags) and i don't like carrying a gun without a holster. It would be great to find a small enough holster that fits in that pocket! Anyone carry one of these like this?

Thanks!

I got my holster for my NAA from http://shop.lostriverholsters.com/

he is a small shop and it willing to make custom stuff (for very cheep) I dont think he does leather. I got one of his neclase holsters and then roughed it up with a wire brush and use it for a pocket holster.

In which pocket do you carry it?

5th pocket = watch pocket, of course very few people carry a pocket watch any more so the NAA seems a good substitute

Nope, mine is the original pocket companion, but that one would work just as well.

Their folding grip/holster works very well. See it on their web site. It covers the trigger and provides a bigger grip in your hand than the standard wood grip. I ordered mine that way.

I've read really bad reviews about those folding grips.

Hey bad guy!
Fumble for the gun in my pocket
Unfold the grip
Get a grip
Cock hammer
Boom!

As apposed to just the last three points

I got a fabric holster from NAA for my Pug ... it fits perfectly and has a Velcro pouch for a reload ... I carry the Pug all summer in the slash pocket of cargo shorts ... great little gun ...

I have the Thad Rybka leather holster for my 1 and 5/8 mini. Works well and carries 5 reloads (obviously not in real time). However, it will carry 5 22 LR in the pouch, it won't fit 5 22 mags. But it will fit 5 WRFs - which chambered in a 22 mag cylinder.

Yes, reloading this in a fight, they better be really slow zombies.

Maybe I'm looking at it this wrong. The problem with just tossing a gun in your pocket is because something else in said pocket might manipulate the trigger. Right? But if you have a pocket that is only big enough for the gun. And said pocket will presumably never have anything else in it. Why is that method of carry such a bad idea? A pocket holster for that little gun in that little pocket will be nothing more than a pocket liner. I personally like the idea, but maybe I'm missing something.

I agree with you. The only problem is that the cylinder snags behind the liner int the pocket and its anything but a fast draw.. More like a "can't get this thing out" draw.. with a smooth lined pocket holster that fits int here, that should be easier (i hope)

actually very fast, single push button "pops" the gun into your hand.
actually much faster than drawing my IWB primary carry.

Have you shot the pistol? You need to practice drawing and shooting before you start to rely on the device.

When they first came out a friend of mine got one. I shot it several times and was unable to hold on to it. Interesting to shoot and then try to catch the pistol as it flies through the air.

Frankly some of the smaller pistols are just as concealable and are easier to control.

Small caliber pistols require a minimum of two shots. If you cannot control the weapon then it potentially becomes a liability.
