    Is it a good deal or no? I got the ruger in a trade along with a kel tec .32 for my p22. The kel tec is cool but the ruger is just trading material.

    Let him keep the Son-of-Sam revolver, you keep the Ruger and sell the KelTec.

    I'm generally not a big fan of charter but the bulldog got great ratings. It was rated as one of the 'best guns for the money'. That said it is not an expensive gun.

    You need to give that Ruger a harder look. It may not be fancy, but Ruger P-series handguns are about as reliable as they come. Nothing against the Charter, but I would be very reluctant to trade off a Ruger P-anything.

    The P-95 is an excellent handgun. Have you shot it?
    Crazedjava is right. Give that Ruger another look.

    My Charter Arms Bulldog is a piece of trash.
    But.
    It was one of the first.
    Maybe later production were better.
    I hope.

    Keep the Ruger.

    My mom has been carrying the 38 Charter since before I was born and I've shot this 44 Bulldog Target Airweight and it shoots good, feels good and has less recoil than my Kimber 45.
    They're made in Shelton, Ct. and come with a lifetime warranty.

    It's a 44 special bulldog and I guess was made in the 70's if that changes anything.

    you got pics of the Charter? Have you fired either the Charter or the Ruger? Neither one is really a collector piece but I would be concerned about an older charters reliability. Also, +1 on trying out the p95. Those things are nearly indestructible.

    Or he's just one of those guys who doesn't really care about/know/is invested in stuff and is always buying, selling and trading. I love guys like that though I never understand 'em...

    I am not trying to trade anyone in here. This started as a trade for a watch for a llama 1911 almost a year ago and about 20 guns later I'm here. Just asking for suggestions. If you don't have any there's no need to say anything.

    Like I said to Hoss this is an ongoing trade I've been doing for about a year now. I use it to shoot many different guns and keep trading for fun. I have several guns that I would never consider trading. My first rifle, shotgun, pistol, and gift guns. Just for fun. I'm by no means stupid or ignorant of guns value. I am just having fun. I can afford to buy thirty guns a year so why not own one for a few weeks and move on? Thanks for the "input" fellas.
