For a cheap college kid who has a supply of free .357 due to a handloading father, and who has a very limited local selection of pawnshops and used markets whats ideal?

Charter Arms, the new Charter arms seems alright. For a mostly .38 sometimes .357 I think the pug would be acceptable. Superior to a Taurus, I'm not sure.

Whats the general opinion fellas?


Thanks.

The Charters I have handled lately have had very gritty triggers and the fit and finish are horrible. I think you are better off with Taurus.

If funds are limited, I would just keep looking for a used revolver that passes the check out. Last weekend I saw a nice ruger speed six for $275 and an experienced S&W 19 4" for $250. Deals are out there, just need some patience and luck.

Taurus is much better. I used to have a Charter Bulldog Pug (probably late 1990's), and it was very poorly made.

That said, a relative has an early 1980's Charter .38 that's really not bad. But I would stay away from the later Charter stuff.

for the same price of a new Charter Arms, you can get a used but more reliable S&W.

i say shop around the net, way around the Charter Arms line....

The Charter seems light for enjoyable 357 shooting. The grips don't feel soft enough to be comfortable.
I have never shot one.
