You're probably right.

I know the song,but am not a real big fan of the genre.

The Son of Sam killings made that gun an icon just like Dirty Harry put the 29 on the list.

To save people the trouble of looking back, at the time of posting #21 is a Charter Arms Bulldog.

Charter Arms' line of handguns also falls into the same category of affordable to the poor weapons as Hi Point.

Charter Arms has so much more going for it thats positive,then the negative publicity of the David Buttholewitz killings.

The Bulldog,in particular,is one of the most interesting designs because its a modern production image of an iconic class of yesteryears' handguns- the "belly gun".

Probably the true American icon is the SW K frame .38 special.

The choice of police, bad guys, civilians, security guards, and everyone south of the Rio Grande for more than century.

Probably the only American handgun that beats out the Luger, 1911 and BHP for popularity in the 20th century.
