NAA 22LR Revolver Belt Buckle

Is anybody else drawn mystically to this gun? I have to have one, but I'm not sure why???

I'd like to see one in acutual use on someone's belt. I've only seen them in pictures.

I don't have one but I know why I'm attracted to them. "Back in the day" as they say, Mattel made a belt buckle with a pop-out derringer that I just loved. It was spring loaded and when you pushed your gut out, the gun would pop out on a hinge and fire a plastic bullet with a cap (if you had a greenie stickum cap of course). I thought that was SO cool. Of course I forget that the gun would go flying off the buckle about half the time, but the idea was cool.

The NAA always reminded me of that. I keep saying I want one.

I have an early version, that I picked up as an unfinished belt buckle, that I completed enough to make it functional... mine ( unsure how the new ones operate ) has a pin that slides into one of the chambers, ( making the 5 shot gun into a 4 shot belt buckle ) it holds the gun pretty securely, though I guess I look at it as more of a toy, than as a back up, since mine reduces the capacity of the gun...

... but my "snake eyes" edition NAA mini looks pretty nice mounted on the buckle...

These little revolvers are really fun to shoot.

I know what you mean. As soon as I saw one I wanted it and I have absolutely no reason for it.

^^^^^ and that is my point! What am I going to do with it exactly?

Shoot it? Some, but not a bunch.

Wear it? Some, but not regularly.

Carry loaded? Maybe...if I can shoot it well enough to defend my self against 1 slow person!

I am attracted to them as well, and have picked them up regularly at the LGS. I just haven't pulled the trigger on one yet. I don't know why either

A friend of mine bought one at a pawn shop, It had been disasembled and put back together wrong. I reassembled it and had to shoot it. I was impressed!
