Actually, accuracy isn't much of a factor at typical engagement ranges. (3 to 7 yards) if you can hit COM quickly.

Yeah I'm just saying with my snubby at 7 yards I'm lucky to get 3 shots on paper aimed but with my Glock I can dump an entire mag of 10mm into the target in about 4 seconds without really aiming and I can empty a longer barrelled revolver on point pretty quick also.
As was stated it may be my gun. I realise you don't need pin point accuracy at that distance but for me I would be afraid I'd take out a bystander with the snubby.

I see your point.

All of us must realize that if we're going to carry a snubby, we need to practice with it REGULARLY!

Since I use a shoulder rig, I can carry a full size SIG P226. 16 shot into COM is no problem.

But especially in summer, I sometimes carry a S&W 642. I shoot the 642 in practice about twice as much as the SIG.
