    We headed to the range today to put the NAA and the Tomcat through the paces. I must say the NAA .22 Mag was interesting to shoot. It took about 20 rounds to even begin to get comfortable with it, but the kick was minimal for myself and the Mrs. The Mrs. did better with the NAA than I did but that is good because it is her gun anyway.

    The Tomcat was really nice to shoot. I was suprised how little it kicked. I put about 100 rounds through it and I only had 2 FTF so I figure about two or three more trips to the range it should be good and broken in. I know the .32 Auto is not the most powerful cartridge, but for deep carry it will do.

    Cool.

    That NAA...I found it easiest to aim by making the top flush under the front sight.

    I will give that I try next time I head out to the range, it was fun to shoot but with my big hands I kept feeling like it would just fly out of my hand...With these two guns being my first foray into deep carry firearms, I am learning that the smaller the gun, the harder to aim.

    Don't feel bad, you're not alone. It's really easy to underestimate how much harder smaller pistols are to use. Honestly, that's why I shoot my PPK/S so often...I'm just a couple notches below what I can do with a 1911 now, but at first I was pretty bad...and I started competing with service size handguns at 13 yrs old and had a little Spanish .32acp most of my teenage years.

    You will improve with practice....the good news about smaller calibers is you can find really cheap ammo deals.
