*Pre-Order until 4/25* Fenix Digital P3D Black Finish [P3D] FOR COMMENTS ON NAA GUARDIAN SEE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS COMMENTARY, The more they attack me on their message board the more truth I will publish... ...........................................................
I have never had a problem with the quality of NAA products. I have had both NAA and Teddy Jacobson customize and work on my guns and I have no complaint about the work of either. I understand and respect criticism, but they is a fine line between criticism and unconstructiv bellyaching.(HOW ABOUT MAKING A BETTER PISTOL USING BETTER PARTS AND SPRINGS)
Yea, sometimes we need to vent, but what this board does not need is a permanent crop of bellyachers. If you don't like NAA products, fine tell us why once. Just don't make it a career. (COMMENTS ARE MADE BY MANY PEOPLE, NOT ONLY ME GEORGIE)
THE MORE YOU WRITE THE MORE I WILL POST... ............................................................................

A Trio of Pocket .380 ACPs: Steer Clear of NAA’s Guardian
Instead, depending on your needs, pick the slightly larger but fully functional Beretta Cheetah. Also, we loved aspects of S&W’s PPK, but it didn’t work during some parts of our test.
In a life-threatening situation any firearm is better than none, and a small, pocket-size gun is often more likely to be carried than anything bigger. The Beretta 85 FS Cheetah ($575, above) was a busy-looking handful, but all the controls worked well.
Whether or not the .380 ACP cartridge is your cup of tea, it exists in large numbers of available handguns today. Some of today’s most modern ammunition make this cartridge a better one than it was, say, 30 years ago, but we would still not consider it for a main defensive weapon because we feel there are better caliber choices. Even the .45 ACP can be had in small packages.
We decided to look at a few of the .380 pocket pistols available, never mind the relative worth of the cartridge. After all, in a life-threatening situation any firearm is better than none, and a small, pocket-size gun is often more…

Cleveland – Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich wants to ban hand guns in America.
Kucinich is currently drafting legislation that would ban the purchase, sale, transfer or possession of hand guns by civilians. A gun buy-back provision will be included in the bill.
Kucinich announced this move in the aftermath of Monday’s deadly shooting at Virginia Tech.
Kucinich noted in a speech to congress that about 32 people die each day in America due to hand gun related incidents. 33 died at VT.
Kucinich says it’s becoming “painfully obvious” that the easy availability of handguns constituents a growing national crisis of public health and safety, one that he says calls for a powerful, wide-ranging response from congress.
He says the level of violence in our society constitutes a national emergency.
Already this Congress, Kucinich has introduced HR 808, legislation to establish a Department of Peace and Nonviolence. It would address the issue of domestic violence, gang violence, and violence in the schools, which is reflected in the current homicide rates.
i have 32naa aprox 300 rnds thru yesterday at my ccw quals. the trigger spring broke. talk about embrassed!! but better there then when carring. is naa still having problems with this spring wolff doesn't list it. is it made anywhere else? my e clip also only has 2 legs. i reload using 60gr xtp to 1150fps and have not had any problems before. i'm going to try berry's 83gr wadcutter. when i get a new spring.
Additional comment - There has been no GUARDIAN pistols for sale for about 6 to 8 months because of their separation from the KAHR Co. Even if they get a new frame and slide and barrel made it will not address the issues that remain of inferior parts and springs in MY OPINION ONLY. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN RESOLVED YEARS AGO. THEY CONTINUE TO USE PT night sights which in my opinion are poor at best. The best and brightest night sights are Trijicon, Meprolight and X/S sights.. MY OPINION ONLY BASED ON MY VAST EXPERIENCE.
Why would anyone want gutter snipe night sights on a mouse gun is beyond me, its all about making money. THIS IS MY OPINION ONLY. The sight radius on these gutter sights is about 2 or 2.5 inches and they are so dim they are barely visible. MY OPINION ONLY, they are playing you like a fiddle.
More important items and problems could have been addressed years ago such as lightening the frame of the 380 acp model so that it does not feel like a rock in your pocket. Why would the factory have instructions to keep sending extra drawbar springs and "E" rings and firing pins to customers, answer is that they know even the new ones will fail. MY OPINION ONLY.
WHY NOT CUT A DECENT CROWN ON EACH BARREL AND HAVE DECENT RIFLING ??? ..............................................................................................................................
IF THEY CARED ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS LIKE THEY CLAIM THESE PROBLEMS WOULD HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED AND "CORRECTED" MANY YEARS AGO. IF THEY WANTED TO GIVE YOU TOP RATED NIGHT SIGHTS THEY WOULD HAVE USED TRIJICON OR MEPROLIGHT OR TOOL TECH. YOU DO NOT LIKE WHAT I AM TELLING YOU, THATS JUST TOO BAD THEN GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WORLD OF TRUTH AND REALITY. I LIE TO KNOW ONE.
I've had nothing but problems with this gun since I got it about 2 and a half years ago. Ill admit the customer service is some of the best I've seen. But I think the guns are junk. My .32 so far has had a grip screw break off, the upper slide dissasemble buttom break, magazines fall out when shooting, and now my firing pin spring has broken. How the hell does a firing spring pin break!?!?!? CHEAP PARTS!!! I've been in law enforcement for 7 years now. And all I have to say about this gun it that these are the type of guns that get the wrong people killed.
This cat was as fast and vicious as its namesake, and we liked it better than Walther’s PPK/S-1, the Bersa Thunder, and the North American Arms Guardian.
Beretta’s Cheetah 84LS is a nice package of ûshooting comfort and small packing size. Of ûthe pistols in this test, it’s our pick.
Smaller guns have always had a certain appeal. In some cases it was just the aspect of miniaturization that captures our imagination. In other cases it was the reassurance of a highly concealable weapon. One niche of such guns were semi-auto .380s, which have long been popular sidearms because of their flat, short footprint and sufficient, if not outstanding, power.
We recently tested a few full-capacity semi-automatic pistols chambered for the .380 Auto, also referred to as 9mm Kurz (“short” in English), or 9mm Browning Short in Europe. While the .380 Auto was a much better choice for self-defense than other little-gun cartridges, it still lags noticeably behind the more popular
