    I have long thought that the Bull Dog 44sp would be a very good car or truck gun.

    Powerful up close protection without a great amount of money involved.

    I got a friend bought a taurus 44 special snub,he said bullets are expensive LOL he found 100 rounds of brass for around $30.00,I reload for 44 mag and cast 240 grn LSWC bullets,should be able to get his ammo cost down to around $8.00 100 rounds depending on how many loads we can get out of the brass,might be as high as $11.00 100 rounds which is dirt cheap,God I love reloading

But I do carry it inside the waistband in the summer time with a Universal Clip Draw, which you can see in the bottom picture.

    Here is an interesting article by John Taffin:

    And here are a few pics of one that I customized:

    Charter Arms like many Connecticut arms companys has had changes in ownership over the years, I have a 3" bulldog in stainless with a very tapered barrel...and a docked hammer...bought it new in 1984..never a problem, carry it way more than I shoot it, sure I'd buy a 44 special J frame if S&W would make it, or a Ruger...sadly they dont, but the Charter Arms new owners are going to re-introduce the 3" tapered barrel on the 'Dog" (according to the "site") My charter arms is in a holster 24/7...and disapears IWB on me....I bought into the 44 special round for defensive carry (over the quality/fit/finish of the bulldog)...and no regrets decades later.. put one in your hand..Im on the lookout for the .40 cal piece they brought out this year...

    Magnaport. The sight is an XS Big Dot for a Smitty J Frame. I put an XS Standard Dot on two of my other Charters.

    Thank you for the info I just purchased a Bulldog 44 and I really like it but I would like to change the sight so I will check out magaport.
    I wish Ruger would make a SP101 in a 44 also but until then this will do.

    The Ruger 44 Special Snub sounds like a great idea ! {You listening Ruger Management?} In fact a GP sized revolver in 44 Special would be a good idea as well !
    The SP-144 and the GP-440-S , sounds like an idea !
