After years as a Semi-auto man, I got my first snubbie this Xmas. They sure are fun! Congrats on a great looking gun and make sure to keep it busy at the range!
enjoy...nice looking classic
"Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it."
That said, I agree with you. I mostly train with hard cast 158 grainers over 6 grains of HS-6. Gives me about 800 - 850 fps and enough recoil to force me to hold the pistol well.
Not as classic, but I do love my Smith snubby.
Very nice, and +Ps wil be no problem in this snub.
So I took my "new" Model 15 to the range today. I fired some feeling out shots, both single and double action just to get used to it. I had some cheap Aquila 130 gr. FMJ. The two targets in the photo below represent 50 rds each at 30' with a 5.5" Shoot N C. I wanted to see how the gun would handle and check out its reliability so it was all done rapid fire. Starting out at the low ready (no drawing from the holster at this range) I would bring the gun up quickly and fire 6 shots as fast as I could, reload quickly and repeat until that box of ammo was empty. It got pretty warm. All shots were done double action. I used speed strips for reloading. Shooting more slowly or even single action the accuracy was much better. I could pretty much put the shot where I wanted it. Obviously this gun is far more accurate then I am.
That is very nice. I love semi-autos but I when I got my first S&W snubbie I immediatley fell in love with it. I found I carry it more than anything else now.
That is a very nice piece you have!
I really miss my snubbie model 15. Best shooting revolver I ever owned.
