Hi everyone- just a short request for info from fellow Freepers. I just got the opportunity to purchase a Charter Arms .44 special bulldog- from a friend that has owned it for years and not shot it in years, who now finds himself in a little cash crunch. I can get it cheap! I've never shot the .44 special and wanted to hear any opinions about it out there. It's a short barrel, I know it won't be accurate much more than room distance, but that's exactly what I want it for. What do you all think?
You're only about 3 years late in responding to my post. However,...
Unregistered is not the proper word, but my sentiment is the same. Buying from a dealer entails that you have to go through the FBI check. That's not a problem for me because I can buy a firearm legally. However, the check tells the feds, "So-and-so just bought the such and such gun with such and such serial number." Now the feds claim that these records are destroyed after a certain amount of time.
But, look at what happened in New Orleans recently. LEO went around confiscating guns so they could force evacuation.
I don't believe the feds actually destroy the records. I believe that if and when the feds decide to confiscate our guns, they'll rely on those FBI checks to help identify gun owners.
I have 2, an old blue steel from the original Charter Arms Co and a stainless from the Charter Arms 2000. I like them both, scored 248 out of 250 on my last Texas CCW with it. Recoil on last shot is like an arm wrestling event 'cause it's so lite but I love the sound and muzzle flash and it's smaller than a lot of .38s for CCW.
