    I have this exact gun, purchased it new back in 1981. My second handgun ever and first big bore handgun. Don’t plan on ever parting with it.

    Nice review.. I’ve been interested in Charter firearms. They’re made in USA, and they come at an almost unbeatable price. But the lack of… finish on newer models has always painted a low quality image to me. I’ve heard about some good features.. and everyone says they’re solid.. This review has cleared a few things up for me. I can now see these aren’t necessarily cost cutting measures. Thanks for another great review!

    Nice vid Sootch00! Had a Taurus .44 2.5″ awhile back, a little ruff, but fun recoil. Am going to get the .40 s&w Pitbull as a Glock companion.Glock 10 round mags make sweet ‘speedclips’ for it.

    Great review,I have the same revolver. I prefer the older design. I even have the original Charter arms holster made by charter Arms which is hard to come by. I use 240 grain lead round nose which I reload myself to about 800 fps. Compact man stopper for sure. Love your reviews.

    You said that this is the smallest “big bore” concealable revolver. I dunno if you consider the .357 mag to be big bore, but the Ruger SP 101 is VERY concealable and shootable.

    Yes, but .44 special isn’t easily found and is expensive when it is. .45 Auto can be found anywhere and moon clips are cheap and a lot of .45 ACP revolvers can even be used without them in an emergencey.

    they make a .40 S&W cal one without moonclips and the .44spl is on par with the .45 auto

    my gf has a “lavender lady” charter arms .38 special…great little gun!! dosent weigh almost anything!!! sooo light, because of that it has more kick than my ruger p94 .40 cal. but for my gf its a great little gun for concealed carry, so small and light you can slip it into a pocket without really noticing it….5 rounds hell of a recoil and loud as hell- only 2inch barrel but great little gun, not to fond of the color but it will still put holes in you!!

    Great review! That was the gun of choice for Detective Will Gram from the movie Manhunter (before they remade it and called it Red Dragon). All you need is to have “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” playing in the background and you’ll be set.

    I never knew that the son of sam used this gun. Learned something pretty interesting from this vid

    What would be really cool if they made a .45 ACP/Auto Rim revolver that size. They make 5 shot moon clips.

    Hard to argue with a .44 special revolver not much bigger than the size of many .38s and even some .357s.

    It’s called the NY reload. Bring another gun.

    This is my first comment sootch. I love watching your videos. I have only 3 guns and i am trying to research and study weapons as much as i can. I don’t want a huge collection but rather a variety of diff caliber weapons. So far a 9 a .357, and a 30 ot 6. I have a belief that if weapons and ammo did become scares it would be wise to have a variety of different caliber weapons. That .44 looked nice but what i need now is a small carry, a 12 gauge, and a.22 in hg form and rifle form. Suggestions?

    Great review..Seems like a good option for concealed carry for the non recoil shy. I would much rather have this than a .38.

    Reagan was shot with a Charter Arms .22 as I recall.

    Wasn’t the Bulldog popular and carried for many years by Air Marshall’s?

    Yes, these puppies kick like a mule. Not as bad as a hot loaded .44Mag, but considerably more than a 1911, They do wake you up. I love mine, it’s fun for about a half a box before my hand aches.

    Charter Arms in the 70′s were thought to be a cheap “Saturday Night Special” firearm but over time they have held up very well and earned respect.
