I bought a NIB Charter Arms Undercover .38 in 1980, still have it, shoot it often, with never a problem. Bottom line; the weapon is only as accurate as the shooter and my CA is just as accurate as my other snub nose revolvers.

With that said, the company has changed hands in recent years and their product quality has suffered IMO. I would buy a CA before I would buy a Taurus.

It's still the lightest (unloaded) compact revolver on the market currently. We're looking into it for the "Boss"

I have a Charter Arms Undercover from about 1989. It will never be mistaken for a Colt Detective Special. That said, it does OK. The trigger is decent, if not stunning. It's always run fine. I still carry it on occasion. I wouldn't mind taking a .22 LR pathfinder for a spin.

I have a Charter pitbull in .40S&W Its actually for sale for 480.00 right now.

I like it. Shoots straight is mega concealable , Fairly light for a SS revolver and I find shooting .40S&W much easier than in any pistol Ive ever shot .

. This isn't giving me a lot of confidence in Charter! Why, oh why did I sell that Security Six all those years ago ?

there have been no problems with the pink 38 i bought for my mom. i personally dont think that they are worth what many charge for em, i wont pay more than $325 for one in like new condition. i have been considering getting one (regular color though) as a bug

. I had a 4" Security Six. It was a great gun, but I traded it for a 6" S&W 586.

I've heard very neutral things about them. However, is leaving a loaded weapon in your truck a good idea?

Fair question. I have always operated on the theory: leave nothing in an unattended vehicle that you really want to see again.
