    New Carry Revolver

    I have been trying to decide on a snubby revolver for carry for a while. I wanted something with more knockdown power than .38 Special and a bigger diameter than .357. Recently I started seeing reports about the Charter Arms Bulldog Pug in .44 Special. So I decided I would try one. I ordered it a couple of weeks ago and picked it up today. Unfortunately I did not use my brain and order some .44 Special ammo and no place I looked today had any. You and I both will have to wait a few days for some to arrive so that I can do some shooting. I will say that I like the feel of the gun. It is well put together and feels very good in my hand. I'll post again when I get some rounds through it.

    Way to go, that's a man's gun! I had a Bulldog years ago and they're great little guns with a lot of punch. Enjoy!

    Wow!

    You're in Bama...I'm in FL...I bet I'll be able to hear the 'report'...

    I believe you are correct about the knockdown power, nice package of power!

    Enjoy your new family addition!

    Nice pistola George.
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    There, but for the manufacturer, go I.

    I have craved a small .44 Special for a while now, but I must say I'm just a little leery of Charter Arms. This is not from personal experience, but only from hearsay, so I will be the first to admit that there is little hard evidence to justify my apprehensions.

    Also, I really haven't heard too much about recently manufactured Charters. Maybe they're getting a better rep in recent years?

    Good luck with it, the report is going to be interesting. Really give it a workout and let us know what the story is!

    nice revolver George ! I been looking at something like that myself, especially in a high-end s&w scandium model in .45acp.
    Depending on hows it gonna go with yours, I might even try one of those...
    good luck.... I can't wait to read your initial findings....

    If I'm not mistaken, Jim (aka ExSoldier) had one of those and had a few problems. They may have improved since then though, I hope so anyway. Looking forward to your report George, I'm a sucker for large bore wheelies so I've considered getting one of those myself.

    I had a range session with another shooter's Charter Stainless .44 Bulldog a couple of years back and was favorably impressed. The lockwork was smooth and and the revolver was tight. It felt more substantial than a Charter Arms .38 snub I'd fired years before. Stoked with a load such as the Federal 200 grain semi-wadcutter hollow point a .44 Bulldog would be potent protection in a compact package.
