    It looks like it needs a trip to the range.

    Why not be a nice guy and do that?

    Charter is OK. Quality and finish not as good as a S&W, but is not an RG or Clerke.

    There are untold numbers of ND's that happen with unloaded guns. Keep your booger hook off the bang switch.

    Or... learn by experience. Personally, I prefer to learn from those who have been there and done that.

    I bet you dollars to donuts, that it will go bang every time you pull the trigger... assuming ammo.

    I'm not impressed. I've had a gun since I was seven. That's 21 years, and I'm a baby compared to many, in both age and gun ownership experience. If you think you're smarter and better than everyone else, fine. I just hope no one gets hurt. No one is immune. Make a bad habit with an unloaded gun, that habit can very easily transfer to the same gun while loaded.

    No one is trying to insult your intelligence, but ask yourself one very simple and easy question: Do you think the "golden rules" of gun safety were written by a A. scholar with no gun experience, B. a shooter with tons of experience, or C. compiled from the worldwide shooting community as a whole, with untold hundreds or even thousands of years worth of cumulative experience with firearms? (not so subtle hint: the answer is C.)

    You may go your entire life with your finger on the trigger of even a loaded gun and never have an ND. But...

    Please stay far away from me if you have a gun in your hand. I hope you don't hit anyone when you have an ND.

    iftown, Around here we pay a very high level of attention to safety and if we see a pic of something we would not advise a new shooter do, we will point it out. It is not meant to say anything other than you shouldn't do that. Just this past weekend there were several Negligent Discharges (there is no such thing as an "accidental" discharge- they are all due to negligence) at gun shows and rallies all over the country. Every one of those people knew for certain the guns they were handling were unloaded.

    How do I know? I am 47 years old. I had an ND with a gun that I had just that moment, when I pulled it out of my safe, checked it to make sure it was unloaded and did not have a magazine inserted. I handed it to my buddy and told him to try the trigger. He shot a hole through my bedroom wall.

    It happens. Not to everyone, but it does happen even to people like me who are safety Nazis.

    Keep your booger hook off the bang switch at all times unless you are firing at a target. If you are taking a picture to post on a pro-gun site like this, keep your finger off the trigger. We all understand. And if you don't, we will call it to your attention.

    As to the gun, is that a double-action only with an exposed hammer? Hmm. Can't say I would go for that. In a DA-only gun I want an internal hammer. Having it exposed sort of defeats one of the purposes of DA-only, doesn't it?

    Let us know how it shoots.
