This is a basic, no-frills .38 snubnose. So far, I've put 100 rds of Fiocchi FMJ through it and 20 rds Federal .38 +P JHP and every one of them went "bang!" Being 16 oz you feel the +P stuff but it's not excruciatingly painful, You just notice a bit more recoil than the regular .38 load.
The trigger was stiff but loosened a bit after firing two boxes of FMJ. I'll use some Snap-Caps while watching TV to work it a bit more. That should smooth out the DAO trigger some.
I've a Charter Bulldog .44 Spl that I also carry and I like Charter revolvers. Functional, blue-collar piece, made in the USA and competitively priced. What's not to like about that?
Buds was great service and the transfer agent, Kitchen's Guns in Ashland, KY, was quick and hassle-free, as always. Thank you Charter, Buds, and Larry Kitchen!
