Charters are very light and inexpensive. They will not hold up to the amount of shooting you could give a Ruger GP100 or an N-frame S&W, so if you plan on shooting several hundred rounds every weekend you might want to consider something else. . But if you have a use for a gun that you are going to carry a lot and shoot some, they are just the thing.
Great customer service too. Here's mine:
2" Stainless Bulldog Pug in 44 Spl with factory bobbed hammer.
4" Target Bulldog in 44 Sol with GunKote finish. Weighs 19 oz. Great trail gun.
