Since all of my semis were lost in a freak boating accident, I decided to pick up a wheel gun for EDC.
I went to a couple of my favorite LGSs to get an LCR in .357 but there were none to be had. One shop had a beautiful Ruger SP101 TALO. I drooled on it for a few minutes and then went to look at the Tauruses since there were also no M&P revolvers in the case either.
I was checking out a Taurus 650 when the proprietor asked if would be interested in a 9mm revolver. I told him I didn't want to deal with the moon clips. Well, he pulls the Charter arms PITBULL out of the case and says "No moon clips required!"
I'd never seen one of these before but remember S&W did something like it but it didn't catch on for some reason. I figured that it's worth a shot and as a bonus I won't need to get any more reloading gear.
I put it in lay-a-way so I could do some research and have it reserved. After some googling I have come to find that this is the proverbial hen's tooth and the few reviews I could find varied widely from total fail to well worth the $.
There are a couple threads here that started out asking about the PITBULL but turned into "discussions" about the need for a 9mm or .40sw revolver.
Has anyone actually fired one?
I've never been a wheel gun guy so I haven't paid much attention to them before now. I realize that the PITBULL has been around for a little while but it is completely new to me.
