North American Arms (NAA) makes the smallest revolvers on the market for concealed carry and lawful self-defense, and the advanced engineering on its Pug and Sidewinder mini revolvers are very hot right now.

The Pug is a five-shot, single-action, stainless steel mini revolver that measures less than 5 inches long and weighs around 7 ounces unloaded. The 1-inch-long barrel fires .22 LR ammunition and features six functional ports milled into the muzzle to reduce muzzle rise and felt recoil. Factory custom LaserLyte grips build a highly useful laser right into the grip, projecting a bright red dot onto your target. The Pug also features manual sights, with a speed-sight rear and a high visibility white dot-front sight.

The Sidewinder is a five-shot mini revolver whose cylinder swings out to the right side of the action, and is held in place by a cam during reloading (most NAA mini revolvers reload by completely detaching the cylinder from the frame). It even features a classic-style, spent-cartridge-extracting plunger. Popular versions of the Sidewinder ship with an integral pocket holster/grip with pocket clip.
