This is my 44 special[/IMG]
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]
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:
that is sweet.
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.
I have a 2 year old ultra lite model in 38. I did change the hammer spring to a wolff lighter spring. Works great shoots to point of aim just don't buy the smaller 2 finger grip and try to shot +p loads. Vicious little sucker with that grip.
Thanks, hardluk, I appreciate the insight. That is unfortunate about the boot grips, however, the standard grip is what my Bulldogs have on them, and I don't think it would work for pocket carry.
Never like the looks so never even tried one
I loved my first model bulldog but have no experience with the newer ones.

Ca bulldog 44 spcl
I bought one about 2 yrs ago, & I love this gun & carry it every day, It's reliable & accurate, & easy to hide, I paid about $340.00 for it back then at a Gander Mtn store in my home state.
I like CAs. Good basic revolver. And personally, i like American made especially when it is not a giant company. Very over looked by people with expensive taste, but I would confidently do battle with one...
I had a client with a Charter Arms .38 snub. It had a smooth, reasonable double action pull, was light, and best of all for the ladies, it was pink!
