Default Baby "J" frame at 20 yards

I was at the range with my S&W pre-36 and my Sig Mosquito I decided to see how well I could really do with a 1.875 inch barrel. I have carried one in one from or another for near 18 years and practiced a lot with it. I always here that one should not expect much from a snubbie. SO, I wanted to test the theory. Here's my Smithy:


Well, the girl's still got it!
The first target I did at a whim it still has a lot of 22 holes in it but the second one is all 38 with slow aimed fire. One thing I noticed is that I am more accurate with the sights than with the laser.
Well, here are the targets:

Barrel length will affect FPS and sight picture. The shorter sight picture is harder for some people to align the sights. That is where the blame should be placed.
The barrel has to get the projectile to spiral as it exits, and most snubbies do that in an efficient manner.

(Good shooting!)

That's a sweet ol' Smith and some pretty good shooting.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
