Snubbies are not inaccurate ! They do have a short sight radius and in .38 cal & up, can be a handful.There really shouldn't be any such thing as a unreliable revolver. In my experience with .22 wheel guns they always go bang unless the cartridge is junk. Now accuracy is a different story. I would avoid a snubby if you plan to hit anything.
I outshot everyone in my ccw class with my sw 38 snubbie, a dozen people or so. At the beginning of the class, the instructor recommended to borrow a different gun, because "I would have a hard time qualifying with it".mountainman13 said:There really shouldn't be any such thing as a unreliable revolver.

Maybe its the gun.mountainman13 said:Impressive man. I have a hard time with I've mine. I shoot it better than anyone else that has tried it but still not well enough to qualify or be happy with.
Thanks to all for your input. I do have a couple of .22 rifles. But I like the idea of being able to keep my guns at a low profile when out in and around my property. Neighbors are very close by and I think a pistol would be a good idea. Besides it gives me another reason to buy another gun! I'll check out the Ruger Single Six.A used Ruger Single Six would be my first choice.
I have kicked around the idea of getting an EAA Bounty Hunter. Inexpensive, but what information I've found seems positive.
The rifle suggestion is right on though. You can get them everywhere, and they are cheap. You gain added accuracy and a bit of performance as well.
