This is definitely a quality firearm for the price! On a personal note, I'd like to express my gratitude to Shane Geary at Academy Arms. LLC for always being personable and knowledgeable. If you live in the Lower Fairfield County area of Connecticut, or anywhere in the state for that matter, I would personally recommend going to Shane if you need a Transfer agent, pistol permit certification, or advice on a specific firearm. Shane is top notch! 5 stars*****!

Let me just start this off by saying i was most definitely surprised at this little puppies ability to protect it's owner from the bite to the bark and you would never have seen it coming from such a small frame but it's not overly small well at least not for me as i feel i have medium sized hands but just to be fair before i start the compliments i just want to say that i also purchased some Crimson Trace grips for this bad boy and maybe that is what made me have such a fantastic time shooting this pup.. it was very accurate once you learn her and i was most definitely hitting my target over and over again at a reasonable distance which this is the type of firearm in my opinion that was created especially for that, don't even get me started about the ROAR this thing puts out.. i believe i made the whole firing line take one step back and even got a few winks.. haha, great gun for the price and quality workmanship plus great service from Buds and i honestly could not be happier with my new carry conceal.

I’ve had this revolver for close to a year now and I've put at least 300 rounds of Federal, Winchester and Buffalo Bore through it.

It's been 100% reliable at the range with no problems with shooting or extracting. I squeeze the trigger, it goes bang. And whatever brand of ammo, when I push the extractor rod, the brass drops out and onto the ground.

Would I go to a USPSA match with it? No, but the accuracy is more than acceptable for putting a big hunk of lead into a torso across the room. Hitting center mass on a man-sized silohuette at 15 yards is no problem with this gun. At closer range, those .44 holes obliterate the center of whatever target you want to shoot at. It's a big chunk of lead scooting along at about 850 fps. Ouch!

If you haven't guessed by now, I really like this gun and enjoy shooting it. I carry it loaded with Federal 200 gr lead semi-wadcutters with 5 more on a Bianchi speed strip in the left pocket of my jeans or jacket.

I LOVE my Charter Arms 44 Special pistol!! It is just perfect for concealed carry as far as the size goes. I have one of those special concealed weapons purses and it goes along with me everywhere I go, and NO ONE knows I am carrying it. I got the .44 caliber to not only protect myself from human harm, if need be, but to protect myself from bigger animals like bears, wolves, and the occasional angry moose...After I received my pistol I did send off for the regular hammer though as I do like that much better, just a matter of preference I guess.

I bought this Bulldog to replace the one stolen out of my truck last year. Great gun at a great price. At this price, it doesnt hurt as much if some low-life "re-allocates" it. Thanks Buds! Another easy, and flawless transaction.
