    What snubbies don't have is PRACTICAL accuracy; i.e., they are difficult to shoot well. But at bad breath range, where they are intended to be used, it doesn't matter.

    Not true. Did you ever shoot a Colt Detective? Far more accurate than we will ever be.

Just my opinion. There are things you can do to smooth out triggers, and i am sure others will chime in. For me, between practice and dry firing, it has loosened up quite a bit on both my Smith 642/442. Good luck. Bunker
    I agree, I have the 642CT. From self defense distances it is plenty accurate. Its not fun to shoot a lot but the laser helps get me on target especially in low light conditions.

    This is probably the most accurate statement posted in this thread. Practice, practice, practice......the key to the snubbie being used for self defense.

    x 2 The CT grips have their detractors, but for me they are the bomb.....won't carry a snubbie without them.

    True.

    Yes.

    That's what I said; the little guns are very accurate.

    How about we say they are possessed of INTRINSIC accuracy? But shoot any "course of fire" you care to choose; once with a snubby revolver, once with a full-size service piece (revolver or semi-auto). Any clue as to which one you'll score better with?
