Your first graph goes to 200, the second to 100.

You're talking six shot of the SS vs five shot frames. Think J-frame vs K/L-frame S&Ws. BIG difference. The Ruger SP101s are also heftier than the J-frame Smiths. Personally, I have an old 3" Taurus 85 which VERY closely resembles a 3" J-frame Smith. My 'go-to' carry gun. Also note in the charts above the sharp increase in muzzle velocity/energy of a 3" vs 2". With most loads it approaches 50% more energy! All that for not a heck of a lot of 'concealability' from that inch (or .75") of barrel length...
Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out to get you!
