The NAA Guardian .380 automatic is a good little gun. I ran 100 rounds of both Winchester and Federal .95 gain jacketed shells through it without a single jam. It is my understanding that the jamming problems with earlier versions of the gun have been fixed by NAA.
I shot a 4.5" group at 7 yards and a 3" group at 3 yards with this gun. Not bad for a 60 year old with a bad wist. I am 6-1 with big hands so I could only grip the gun with 3 of my 4 fingers and thumb but it felt relatively conformable despite that limitation. The gun is a bit heavy for it's sub-compact size being stainless steel but that adds to it's stability. Even so, it does have a bit of a kick.
I could only shoot, with any accuracy, about 1 round every 2 seconds. Any faster and accuracy suffered to a point I could only hit 5 out of 6 shots into the "kill" zone at 7 yards. It is more of a "belly gun" given it's compact size.
Dis-assembly, cleaning and re-assembly is super easy. The gun breaks down into a few pieces. It also fits comfortably in my back pocket (just like a wallet) for concealed carry purposes.
I really recommend this gun, it is a really fun shoot.
