Charter builds a good pistol. I carried one for several years as backup. It was the small 38 S&W Cal Snub Nose Model, I want to say Model 85???. And I also bought one as a gift for my Aunt and a good friend here in Tennessee. They are good quality and all parts as well as the frame, are built here in the USA. I think they are overlooked by most when considering a good little pistol. In some models they even build a left handed model.

i prefer to carry my 38 undercover that was made in the 70s. it's not built for the hot stuff but it fits me.

this was made in the 80s and I just put these grips on to make the total weight 22.86 oz.[IMG][/IMG]

I like mine because:1.It's light 2.It was reasonably priced 3.As accurate as any 2 inch-barreled gun 3.Just slightly over the top:

I have 2 Bulldog Pugs that I am very happy with. I have been thinking about a .38 for pocket carry, but don't know if I would prefer the stainless or aluminum frame. Unfortunately, around me no one stocks any Charter guns, so I would have to order it without getting to hold one first.

The most accurate 38 Special I have ever owned was a Charter Arms. The only issue I had with it is I carried it deer hunting to put down wounded deer I came across. I shot a wounded buck that was shot in the hip by someone else that I came across leaving my stand and got no penetration what so ever. I ended up having to slit its throat to put it out of its misery. After that I quit carrying a 38 and switched to "wondernines". But I really wish I still had that super accurate snubby.

i still have my bulldog that i got when they first come out, back then we took the cylinder latch off so it would bite, didnt need it anyway. havent shot it in years, thanks for the reminder i will get it out.

Love my Bulldog Pug. Mine is from the early 80's and very reliable and accurate.
