NAA Owner fades to Florida, leaves company to the Elves

When it comes to Mini Revolvers, the go-to name for the past few decades has been North American Arms of Provo, Utah. Based there since Dick Casul formed it back in the 1970s, it has shifted owners (and names), settling both on NAA and President Sandy Chisholm about 30 years ago.

Now, Chisholm is headed to the house but has put the company in a trust set up for the employees, saying the move was designed to keep the tiny wheel gun maker as-is, where-is, rather than selling it out to a big name in the industry which surely would have shifted the line to a big factory somewhere to make the most of economy of scale production.

Class act for 2022.
