A follow-up on my other review. I sent the gun it and within a couple days the gun returned with a spare .22 lr cylinder! The gunsmith called me the next day and we dicussed my issues and I found that what was happening was completly my fault. After decades of owning firearms I took things for granted and didn't READ THE MANUAL. The gun works great. I couldn't be happier with it. I wanted to man up to my mistake and make things right. I plan to by another NAA mini revolver very soon. - MICHAEL

I purchased the Black Widow in November 2011. I took it to the range to test fire it and found the following.
I found it to be quite impressive for such a small weapon. It has plenty of weight and the grip is just fine for me.
I test fired it and then compared it to the 38 snub nose I carry.
I found it to pull just a little to the left and down slightly. I though it may have been me with a new weapon (and it still may have been), so I pullled out my
38 snub nose to compare.
My 38 cal hit the target with center kill shots, while my Black Widow was slightly left, yet still very capable of dropping what you are aiming at.
Both guns were used at a distance of approximately 32 feet.
My Black Widow is much easier to conceal compared to the snubnose. I use the Hornady mag 45 gr ftx load and it is quite impressive.
I carry the Black Widow most of the time and I do not worry about its stopping power.
One item I want to mention, after firing, do not expect to quickly reload this weapon. I had to use the cylinder rod to remove some of the spent
cartridges from the cylinder.
All in all, I would recommend this gun to anyone who wants to carry an easily hidden, quick close up, self defense weapon for use within a 30 feet range. - JOSEPH
