Default These NAA's are as bad a Handis!!

Well I was overwhelmed and... well I ...I :-\ :-\ :-\

Guess the best way to do this, is just to throw it all out there. So here goes. I BOUGHT A NAA EARL AND A PUG!!! :-[ : ;D ;D ;D

I walked in the shop and WOW they have like five or six, seven, eight, no wait TEN North American Arms revolvers!! ;D They had a Sidewinder, Mini Master, a 1860 Hog Leg, a 1860 Earl (Used), a Blk Widow (Used) TWO new Blk Widows, a PUG, a Folding LR 1 1/8" and a STD 1 5/8" magnum. It was NAA NIRVANA!!

I saw the used Earl (Convertible) and snaked it outta the case. Nice shape, looks like the PO liked LR, as the mag cyl is sparkling clean while the LR will need a soaking. The PUG has always intrigued me. I have been working my arse off, (Last night I returned form four days on the road) and have some play money, SO...

The top two are my 1" STD and my Blk Widow, Beneath is my New to me Earl and Brand new PUG. :

;D ha ha ha ha ha ha Sorry brother. But they are SO **** CUTE, I could not resist!! The words "I'll take 'em BOTH" just rolled outta my mouth before I knew what was happening. :

I wanted a Ruger Shop Keeper in Magnum... none exist. I would have to have one re chambered... I picked up this Earl for $200... probably what that RE Chamber would run me on a 600$ Ruger. That is MY justification. : : ;D

Reports are its a good shooter, hoping so. Now I need a holster. I am gonna end up making something for my self. I would love a cross draw and maybe something for the handle bars on the bike. I'm gonna experiment with Kydex if I ever et some "ME" time.

Darn those are all so pretty 8) didn't know all those fancy models were available.
Used my little 1" LR std to kill a big snake in the coop just a couple nights ago, cci snakeshot does fantastic in the tiny revolver. Drop it in my pocket every night before taking the dogs to the creek, i can't help but love the little 5 shot wonder.

Wheres John Galt?

I agree! But I was thinking of the 4" Earl. :

I am going to make something from Kydex to cover all steel so will all be blk making it more invisible. I have had a Kershaw military knife there for YEARS and no one even notices it and its real handy!!

I have had the 22mag/lr version for years and still use it alot . Do yourself a favor and pick up some of those Aguila "primer only" shells . You can shoot those things anywhere. Absolutly no report but they are perfect for plinking around the yard or camp.Its the perfect platform to use them in.

Ha ha, Ya know I have been using all the no powder and CB bullets for many years...never once thought to try them in a NAA!!! I will give it a try! Around here, (My property) I carry two rounds a rat shot first, on the street all Short barreled ammo Winny PDX1, Hornady CD or Speer GD. That rat shot is handy on the rats! (I have chickens)
