Hello fellow shooters. Thank you for accepting me into TGO. I am 75-years old, a disabled veteran, and use a battery powered scooter for mobility. My dear wife JoAnne and I like to shoot, but now our shooting in limited mostly to an indoor range with the exception of an occasional visit to a friend's place who lives in the country side. At my age I have given many of our firearms away to sons and a few grandsons but JoAnne and I have kept enough to "sustain" us. Besides shooting one of my other interests is amateur radio. I am an extra-class license holder, WY3H. JoAnne and I took the CCW class through the Bradley County Sheriff's Dept. At the range, she shot a perfect 100, I shot a 98. Now I do have a question. Has anyone had experience with the Charter Arms .44 Special? I'd love you hear from you if you h

ave. Thank you all, keep your powder dry and shoot straight.

Welcome to TGO Tom. Thank you for your service Sir.

At 65 I'm a certified senior and was a dry-land sailor way back when. :)

If you post your query about the Charter Arms .44 in the "handguns section" below you'll probably get more input.

But I had/have a Charter Arms Bulldog in .44 spl I purchased around 1987. The trigger never smoothed out as more quality revolvers like S&W, Colt, and Ruger seem to do, but it was reliable as can be, shot straighter than I do and I literally "shot it to death"! They tend to wear out vs wearing in, but I thoroughly enjoyed shooting my handloads in it. It fell apart around 3 thousand rounds.

I carried it with a set of hip grips and a Tyler T-piece. It was great for a low profile carry situation and I admit I was firmly in the "Big Bore" camp in the early '90s.

I have no knowledge of current production Charter revolvers.

Again, Welcome to TGO.

Welcome to TGO and thanks for your service! I have long had an interest in Amateur radio, but have still not gotten my license.  Was into shortwave and listening to ham, but with the internet, I never never did the licensing.  Morse code initially kept me away, but now i have no excuse, lol.
