    Decisions, decisions: Charter Arms Undercover for S&W Sigma?

    i've recently decided to part ways with my Sigma. not for any negative reasons; it was my first handgun, and it was a fine handgun, but i've become a better shooter than the gun is, and it's not like it's going to up in value over time.

    i've been offered a trade: a Charter Arms Undercover. i've been wanting my very own snubbie for awhile now, because everyone should own at least one. would this be a fair trade? i don't now much about them, other than the usual internet ramblings: "they suck!" "they're good!" "they'll give you cooties!" "chuck norris owns one!"

    you get the idea.

    would it be a fair trade, or should i just sell the Sigma for $200?

    IMHO never sell your first gun. Mine was a 40VE and one that still does HD duty on my night stand and nice to have a full capacity gun.

    Save up money for a Taurus, Ruger or Smith for a snubby. You will be glad you did.

    Here we go again on the sigma ! This was my first handgun I bought in 2000.
    I have shot several thousand rounds of 9mm rounds of wolf to white box
    with no failures,that's right to problems.To often the masses get caught up reading what gun rags write about a certain product.It's true some of the early ones had issues.Now charter house made decent revolver back in the 70's
    as many Leo's would use them as back up pieces.Where this company got into
    trouble is they have been sold I think three time in 30 years ,now company that makes Hi point arms owns them so we'll see how they'll do.I have a bulldog 44spl that's a nice ccw it weighs 21 oz empty.Are they made to shoot
    hot loads all the time no.They are made to shoot as designed qualify twice a year and practice.

    If you can sell the Sigma at a fair price that is what I would do. I don't know what a fair price is for it.
    But in any event I would not go for the Charter Arms. It is so easy to rationalize how the less expensive gun will be OK until... But in time almost all of us desire a better one, and like holsters we spend more than if we had started with a good one at first.

    I have had Taurus revolvers, and the results were mixed.

    I would recommend you save until you can get either a S&W or a Ruger.

    Regards,
    Jerry
