There are plenty of pocket pistols on the market today, but few can compete with the North American Arms Black Widow in size and portability. This five-shot, single-action, mini-revolver is only about 5¾-inches long, and although its frame and cylinder are made of stainless steel, the gun weighs less than 9 ounces.

The Black Widow is chambered in .22 WMR, better known as .22 Mag. If you’re looking for a hide-it-anywhere backup gun, or even a backup to your backup gun, the Black Widow will fit, literally.

You can get a closer look at the North American Arms Black Widow in the video below, hosted by Shooting Illustrated Editor-in-Chief Adam Heggenstaller.

Note: The Black Widow featured in the video is equipped with the VENOM laser from LaserLyte. This is not included on the out-of-the-box model.

NRA 150: First Gold For American Riflemen

The modern Olympics, as we know them today, started in 1896, and there were shooting events at the games as early as Athens in 1906. After all, the man who put the games together, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, was himself a French pistol champion. Neither the United States nor Great Britain sent rifle teams to Athens, but that changed for the 1908 Olympic Games in London.
