I have a Charter arms 38 special that my wife likes to shoot. She keeps it in her night stand on her side of the bed. We have shot it a good bit, never had any problems.
Also have a Taurus 9mm PT99, never had a problem with that either.
BUT!!, I would go with the Charter arms in a lower cost revolver.
