If you are looking to hunt don't buy a snubby. I have a S&W 586 with a 6 inch barrel. Great gun. 4 inch barrel is good for defense. Not sure about hunting with a 4" though. Someone with more hunting experience is sure to share some wisdom.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
