I still have a scar where the cylinder latch dug a hole in my hand over 30 years ago. It still hurts when I think about shooting it, but I still have it. I took the edges off of the cylinder latch and put on a better set of grips. I like those CCI Blaser 200 grain Flying Ash Cans. I have a Charter .38 snubby as well. Neither one has had any issues except they are not that well made (Finish Wise) and that the .44 wasn't much fun to shoot until I made a few modifications.
If I were in the market, I'd look at something else before settling on the BullDog. nIf cost wer the only factor, there are a few others in that price range.
Big Dave, It is not stainless. Redhawk44 and Quack Shot, I would like to thank you for coming to everyone's rescue pertaining to the Charter Arms 44 special. It is people like you that make this site so enjoyable and informative. If I can ever be of any assistance to either one of you please let me know. Again, thank you very much. Hoosier
Hoosier....when I first read your opening post, I got the impression that you were looking to BUY a Bulldog, not sell one. Perhaps I scanned it too fast and therefore misunderstood the intent of the thread....my apologies.
