NAA Guardian in .32 NAA

After lunch I ran 50 rounds of FMJ and 20 rounds of JHP ammo through the little NAA Guardian in .32 NAA. It proved to be very reliable. The FMJ ammo was chronographed at an average 1040 fps and the JHP ammo at an average 1196 fps.

From the holster I had no trouble dumping six rounds onto an Action Target PT Hostage steel silhouette at three yards in less than 3.5 seconds. El-Prez drills ran about 13 seconds with the second magazine carried in my pants pocket.

This particular pistol was fitted with an XS Big Dot Sight through the NAA custom shop but shot a bit high. I installed a set of Crimson Trace grips and used the laser for all timed fire.

.32 NAA on STEEL

I have 90 rounds of .32 NAA ammo left and plan to let my wife shoot the pistol some to get a woman’s opinion. She and I will be attending a sub-compact handgun class at Gunsite this August during our anniversary – I know I am a lucky guy. She can cook too. (Ladies, It’s OK to be jealous. I know the beach and shopping excursions are all your husbands take you on.) – and I plan to take the little .32 NAA along.
