Claude Werner of Firearms Safety Training, LLC is on the range doing target analysis of shots fired from a Smith & Wesson J-Frame revolver. Claude discusses some of the common shooting challenges with the snub nose revolver. Due to the extremely short sight radius on the J-Frame, the shooter must place the front sight exactly in the shallow rear notch. If just a little of the front sight is out of the notch, the impact on the target is substantial and results in shots hitting too high, even at three yards. Improve your shooting skills by facing these shooting challenges with the snub nose revolver.
