Now do a wollf rp hammer spring and maybe see groups tighten even more. My oldest daughter claimed my charter arms ultra light. She shoots it better than I did and carries 125gr underwood ammo in it. Recoil in that 13oz pistol is something to get your attention with that load. They are not as pretty as the old blue models. Like you found out given rounds down range they do seem to wear in nicely. Don't bother buying the small 2 finger grip. Makes for a hard to control hammer'n little pistol. Took my girl all of 5 rounds to replace it with the larger grip. Took me only 2. hehe.

you can always send any gun off for a pink duracoating.

here is my ruger 10/22 in pink. i had the normally black reciever duracoated pink to match

Interesting thread. Have you considered a Ruger LCR. I have one, and am very impressed with its accuracy. Years ago, I had a colt detective special. That was the most inaccurate gun I have ever had. That is a surprise. Something broke on it, and I sent it to colt. They fixed it, and sent it back with a target with holes in the center, shot at 15 ft. At 20 yards I couldn't even hit the paper. I sold it fast.

I've never fired one (LCR), but I've heard from several people that the LCR and S&W Bodyguard are both really good snubbies. As long as my wife can draw her Pink Lady at 5 yards and put all five shots in a handprint sized area, I'm satisfied for her purposes.

I have a owned a 1980 Charter Arms Undercover since the early 80's, and I find it as accurate as any other snubbie I own to include my S&W model 642 Centennial.

I find that some of the off brand, cheap target ammo has very poor accuracy and this is more evident with the snubbie's.

My husband bought me the charter arms .38 pink revolver, and I used it for my CPL class, I was hitting the target inline with everyone else, but I am more accurate using single action. It's harder to do double action and I lose my target, but I was still within the 8x11 sheet of paper even using the double. But if she doesn't feel comfortable with the gun and aiming then I wouldn't bet my life on it.

I gave my wife a Charter Arms Pink Lady a few months ago and she likes it a lot. She also prefers single action for target shooting but has become pretty accurate with double action. I shot it a few times but I couldn't shoot it as well as her. I think it's a pretty good little gun, now if I could only get her to clean it herself !!!

I tried to show her how to clean her gun but she had no interest other than she liked the smell of Hoppes 9 solvent... Thanks for the comment about the profile pic.. Michigan is a great State... Good gun laws.

Glad to hear eberything hadms worked out. I guess there was a bit of a break-in period, i skipped that and bought used.
