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 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.

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