Charter .44 Pug Owners

twatwa Senior MemberPosts: 2,231 Senior Member
I have an older model Charter Arms .44 Special, but am thinking of getting the stainless pug version (2 1/2" barell). My excitement for big bores has been fueled the last 6 months or so. I know a few guys have them here, let me know any first hand experience with the shorter / newer models if you would. Any change since Taurus took them over?

Here is my old classic, time for an updated version maybe??

    If you are asking us if you should buy another .44 special in a snub version to compliment you current one, yes, get on it.

    Well that is good news! Not sure why I was thinking they had bought them out. :uhm:

    I learned about 20 years ago that I have regretted almost every trade I made or gun I sold, so I have vowed to not do that unless absolutely necessary or I just HATE the gun. I don't hate that one. :jester:

    Don't blame you. My dad had one like that 25 or so years ago that I shot a bunch but he traded it for something. Not sure if he regrets it but I sure do:bang:

    You're better off buying an older stainless steel Pug - from the time your Bulldog was made.

    I have one of the newer stainless bulldogs. It is a good shooter, and carries well.
