Not in much of a blogging mood today, but I did run across this thread on Calguns about snubbies. General consensus? They suck to shoot.

I must be the only person out of the snubby loop...
I've never fired anything out of mine other than 148 gr target loads. They're not bad, but my elbows know it the next day, even with the puny target loads.
But they're still great pocket guns.
I'll agree wholeheartedly, and I am an unabashed fan of both wheelguns in general and snubbies for concealed carry.
They *do* suck to shoot.
But you know what? So do the micro-380s and 9mms. I shoot either of my J-frames a hell of a lot better than my P3AT, no question about it. I had to really concentrate on the PM9 to even hit paper at 25 feet the first time I shot it.
Any time you have a palm-sized gun firing a centerfire cartridge it's going to be less-than-pleasant. Physics will not be denied...
There's no *fun* in shooting a snubbie - it takes a lot of hand-punishing work to garner even moderate proficiency, and it can be frustrating to spend time, money, and effort to only be "not sh**ty"...
Nah. They just need better grips. ;-)
Pistolero beat me to it;)
In other humor, take JayG's word on snubbies with a grain of salt. He'd shoot an Airweight J-frame .50BMG if they'd make one;)
