“Alan”Not necessarily. There are about 10 different factors which affect accuracy and barrel length is one of them. A good example is a stub nosed revolver. Obviously, they’re not as accurate a say one with an 8 inch barrel. There is an upper limit too, but that is controlled by several of the other (unnamed) factors. The W.A.R. Warp has a rather short barrel (≈12 inches as I recall), and it is superbly accurate. 

The barrel length on the snub nose revolver isnt the culprit for reduced accuracy compared to the longer barrel. The shorter sight radius of the shorter barrel is the cause.
