    First Day At The Range with Smith Snubbie

    I bought this little Smith 60 Snubbie yesterday.

    All ammo shot at 25 feet with 14X targets.

    Winchester Whitebox 38 Special 130: very smooth. Shot some bulls eyes.

    Remington +P 38 130 Gr.: Very easy to control, but larger groups.

    Speer Gold Dot 130 Grain 38 +P: the best, the most accurate, the easiest to control.

    Remington 357 130 gr: more difficult to control, wider groups.

    Federal 357 130 Grain Personal Defense: Ouch. At least I got all of them on the target. Federal should take "low recoil" off the box. It ain't.

    Nice snubby, but definitely a belly gun for up close and personal.

    I love Smith snubbies. Shoot the snot out of it - they call snubbies an "expert's gun" for a reason. Enjoy it!

    BTW, I have a S&W .38 Special and I really like the Gold Dots too. Good call.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.
