I bought a new Charter Undercover back in the early 80s. Bobbed the hammer myself and made some small custom finger-grooved grips for it so it was a little more comfortable to shoot. Never had a problem with it and it even fit inside my boot top occasionally for deep concealment. Most of the time it just slipped into my back pocket or sometimes a leather pancake holster. It was stolen a few years ago in a break-in and I replaced it with a stainless Charter .44 BD Pug. Not as small or light as my old Undercover, but I liked the idea of the bigger .44 Special round. However the .38 Special still has a large following and long service reputation. I would not hesitate to get another Undercover if I wanted one.
