    Tried something new today

    I have a Charter Arms Mag Pug and I've been working with it like filing down the front sight to fix it from shooting low (seems to be a common problem), dry firing the heck out of it, and seeing what ammo works well with it. The gun works pretty well and feels good in the hand.

    Well, I decided that I wanted to carry it, but the beefy Pachmayr rubber grips were tacky enough that my cover garment (flannel shirt) would cling to it. I recently bought a NOS set of small Charter wood grips made for the Undercover, so I put them on the gun. With the new stocks, the light, 21-ounce gun carried like a champ in a small Gould and Goodrich holster.

    I took the gun to the range and it shot just fine with the wood stocks. I have very small hands, so the reduced-size grip fit my hand. Someone with large hands would likely have a problem. Even .357 Gold Dot rounds didn't cause the gun to be painful or difficult to control.

    Just my test of a budget-priced, fairly minimalist setup for carry. Very pleased with the results. I also just ordered a set of Eagle "Secret Service" grips for the gun and am looking forward to getting them.

    Looks good. As long as it works for you it's all good.

    Good looking gun. Love the name "pug". So odd for such a mastiff type round!

    It looks great! If it fits you well and you shoot it well, you have a winner. I carry 357 Revolvers. They are my favorite.

    Like those wood grips! Now it looks like a CC gun.
