Whats out there? All I can think of is the NA revolvers and Beretta 21A.
S&W 43c,both in 22lr. and 22 mag.Ruger also makes both calibers in 2"&3".
Ruger, Taurus and SW make j frame sized revolvers in those calibers, the DA High Standard derringers (d100, d101) also
Thanks, I think j frames will be too large. Wife is wanting a second gun to carry.
Those little guy's may look and feel good, but that's about it. I bought a Taurus PT22 and my Friend bought his Wife a Beretta M21. We took to the range and were completely underwhelmed. Both shot to the point of aim and were completely reliable. BUT, some stray shots hit the target frames made of 2X4's. You could pick the spent rounds out of the frames with your fingernails. Both Wives are now carrying .380's.
I like my Beretta 21a; much more fun than the NAA I used to have with its 1/1/8” Barrel. And it seems to have much better velocity.
the NAA in .22lr is a toy, nothing more. Ok, not a toy in comparison to a cap gun, but you get my point. Unless you find it a fun range toy, it’s useless.
I would love a .22 magnum revolver.
My preference would be the Beretta. I have one in 32acp. Wife is wanting a second pocket-able gun and seen the NA revolver i a pawn shop when i was home last time.
unfortunately, these Beretta 21’s have gotten high. My first one was $200 plus tax. My local gun shop now has a new one in stock- $369.
NAA Black Widow .22WMR. It's got a 2" barrel, so it has the same ballistics as a J-frame (1000fps). It has real sights, so it's quite accurate, and the oversize grip makes it very shootable. You can also put the smaller magnum grip on it for more concealability at the cost of a bit less shootability. And if you get the conversion model, you can practice with .22lr
S333 Thunderstruck is a new unique double carrel 22 WMR/Magnum.
It only holds 8 rounds and the 2 bullets come out simultaneously.
Heavy gritty trigger.
Only four shots.

I really like the 21A I got a few weeks ago.
it’s what you call a nostril gun... I am about to pull the trigger on a NAA Pug. If you don’t expect more than it can deliver you will be ok ... I met a lot of cops that used them in their vests as a hide out.
32 Keltec. Holds 8 rounds and is smaller and lighter than any j frame or Ruger LCR
I have the ruger lcr 2” in .22 mag. It’s a revolver, not a pistol, but is very easy to carry in pocket. That round is quite a little powerhouse.
Beretta 21a. Or Beretta 70s. The latter, though, if you find a nice one, is not cheap. And, not really a pocket pistol. Jacket pocket, maybe.
Ruger LCR snub chambered in .32 Federal Mag giving her the options of a carrying 32 S&W long, H&R mag, and Fed Mag.
Put it under your chin and pull the trigger , get back to me on the uselessness of it..
I could also take a ball ping hammer and smash my thumb with it or hit myself in the head with it. A hard blow to the head with it might even be fatal.
But that doesn’t mean I want to carry one for my CCW piece. Not even as a back up.
I did say it’s not useless if you find it to be a fun range toy. But if you shoot one at the range, be careful- see post below.
Terry, you are totally correct- my experience was even worse. I had a paper target attached to a seasoned oak board and the bullet bounced back at me, hitting me on my clothing, luckily didn’t cause any harm. That was enough for me.
