    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 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.

    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.

    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...
