Default 4in. vs 6in. barrel

How much more difficult is a 4 in. revolver to shoot accurately than a 6 in.?
Is a 4 in. out of the question to hunt with? I would like to hear some opinions from handgun hunters out there.

I think, not sure, but in TN, you can't hunt with a 4". I know in MD, you have to have a 6" I believe. Its not so much the barrel length that delegates accuracy, to a point. But it definately helps in aiming and alot in velocity when the barrel length gets that low.

If you are going to buy 1 strictly for hunting,get the longer barrel. If you already have a handgun with a 4 inch barrel,all you have to do is practice.
It would NOT be worth it to buy another handgun if you have a 4 in version now.
