Where do you get the spring loaded holder to keep one up your sleeve? I might want to go play poker in Deadwood or Dodge City.

That is the image that comes to mind when a think about derringers.

Here's a link to a negative view of SD using derringers:

However, I fully support buying 'just because' guns. If you realize their shortcomings, that is.

My carry gun is a NAA Mini Revolver in .22WMR, with the real long way-out-there 1 5/8" barrel. My problem with most derringers of the over/under configuration is they are often chambered in calibers far too powerful to control in such a small package. Your second shot may be quite some time away from your first because of excessive recoil and the process of target re-acquisition.

Modern defensive loadings for .22 Mag are nothing like what was available even a few years ago. Now, loads especially tailored for extremely short barrels (like mine) deliver hollow point bullets at around/about 1000 FPS, insuring amazing penetration and reliable expansion. Equally important, the little gun is accurate, reliable, safe, and fast. The 5/5/5/5 drill is no problem.
