    NAA Guardian - opinion of trigger?

    I'm playing around with the idea of picking up an NAA Guardian in .25NAA (.32 case necked down for .25 bullet), but I tend to be dissatisfied with most mouse gun triggers. Anybody shot a guardian?

    Just for a bit of context I consider myself a budget gun collector who shoots my toys, not a shooter who needs additional tools to fill a strategic need.

    I have shot the .380 Guardian, and the trigger pull was heavy and long, but it was pretty smooth. I would bet the ammo would be tough to get.

    It's a pocket gun.
    Pocket-gun triggers need long-pull double-action for safe carry.

    To successfully shoot a long-pull, DA trigger, one needs to put in lots and lots of practice.

    Long-but-smooth is good.

    (I don't own a NAA pistol, but you should've tried my AMT .45 Backup pocket cannon before I worked on its trigger. It defined "horrible.")

    Just for a frame of reference, I consider my current TCP 738's trigger perfectly acceptable. My Taurus PT22, however, lives on the bottom shelf of the gun safe because I won't shoot it. I also hated the S&W Bodyguard I had (for a very short while).

    Tanshanomi:
    I have the .32 version, the trigger while long and heavy should be fired using the joint of your trigger finger instead of the pad then it's not too bad. I agree with "Berrettatoter" that the ammo may be hard to get. I have a tough time getting .32's, you might be better off getting the .380 version. I'd also skip the .32 NAA as it is a necked down .380 to .32 the ammo might also be hard to get. The NAA Gaurdian is a nice well made gun great for carrying in circumstances when anything bigger is just not possible. Like a pair of swimming trunks or a shirt pocket.

    But...but...my geeky fondness for weird-ass chamberings is what attracts me to it in the first place.

    Well then go for it. There are advantages as far as velocity goes and bottleneck cartridges have a tendency to feed better. Sometimes I do not understand why they are not as popular? Such as the .357 Sig which is a necked down .40 with a .357 bullet. I believe the necked down cartridges are also more expensive? I have yet to come across either the NAA .32 or the NAA.25. I've seen plenty of .32's and .380's.

    A .357 SIG P226 is the flagship of my collection.

    Reading more reviews of the Guardian series in general has cooled my jets a bit. Decided I don't need another DAO mouse gun I won't enjoy shooting. I still want to add a bottleneck small-bore cartridge to my arsenal, though. I like shooting my .22WMR guns a lot, but I like the idea of adding higher velocity and centerfire reliability with similarly low recoil. I am now zeroing in of a RIA 1911 in .22TCM instead. It's still a single-maker weirdo round, but it's in a full-size 1911 double-stack, which is always a nice weapon in any caliber. Plus, the Rock Island comes with an interchangeable 9mm barrel, so if the .22TCM goes away or becomes cost-prohibitive, I still have a useable gun for the long term.

    Thanks for the replies.

    You can always get a .40 barrel for that weapon and have the best of both worlds.
