    Pro-snubbie reasons/one-liners please

    To begin, I believe that anyone new to CC should seriously consider going w/a wheel gun. There are many reasons for this, but let simplicity suffice. If you don't agree with this thought process, no problem, but pass on to the next thread. I'm not looking for advice on auto's.

    My cousin just applied for her permit and she and her boyfriend are shopping for her first CC gun. She's not new to shooting by any means. She has some great trophies on the wall, grew up in Wyoming, daughter of a Marine, etc. But we all know that CC is different.

    The list that they've come down to doesn't really matter in detail. Two of them are 38 cal. snubbies (S&W / Ruger), two of them are autos. I'm advising her to begin with a snubbie.

    I'm looking for one-liners to support why a snubbie is the way to begin. I'll not pollute this by including my email and list to her. Give me your number one reason, or reasons, why a snubbie is the way to start. Bullet point if you can.

    Thanks (I'll compile and post.....should be interesting)

    Can't limp wrist a snubbie. If one cylinder goes click, next pull should go bang.
