"Like condoms or hairspray, this fits in your pocket for a night on the town. The price of a bottle at a club, it's half as accurate as a champagne cork, and twice as deadly."
GTA V description on the Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Shrewsbury SNS Pistol (short for Saturday Night Special) is a small handgun featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Beach Bum Update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The SNS Pistol resembles the Heckler & Koch P7M10, with some design elements from the Colt Junior 25. It is one of the smallest firearms in the series.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The SNS Pistol is described by Rockstar as a "compact yet deadly" gun. It has an average performance in comparison to other low-grade pistols. It is fairly powerful, but lacks basic accuracy and has very short range, the shortest of all non-shotgun firearms. Due to the very small base capacity of the weapon, a full magazine in the chest may not be enough to kill a player. When fighting an NPC with the SNS Pistol, it usually takes about three body shots to kill.

Overall the SNS is outclassed by every single gun in the game and the only applicable use of it would be to steal another weapon. It can be modded to use an extended magazine, doubling its ammo capacity from 6 to 12 rounds. The weapon model indicates that it is chambered in ".45 ACB".
