    That does sound a wonderful endorsement for the Taurus, but I usually stick around home (MN, too), so I don't encounter much larger than a black bear. I have been very near wolves (VERY fresh signs) but never spotted them in the woods.

    I feel that is one of the most functional CC firearms I've ever seen. Ever since they rolled out with it, I've wanted to get my hands on one. That thing is a no frills, all business belly gun that packs a serious wallop. Nothing to catch or jam, 5 rounds of "get off of me" and loaded with these fellas here:

    There's no need to worry about expansion when your spitting out a hard piece of lead at a good 7-800 fps from that Boomer at point blank range.

    I've noticed that Underwood seems to be making their own version of those BB loads. I was looking up the ultra hot 44 magnum +P+ loads and found that Underwood is making the same thing. The cool part is that they're far cheaper than BB's often insane pricing and by everything I've read, Underwood seems to be good to go.

    I can't say I like it BETTER than my Smiths or Rugers, but like I said, it just works.

    I agree, some firearms are simple tools with a purpose. A hammer doesn't have to be pretty to do a job well. My Bulldog does its job well, it's no beauty, but I don't mind it.

    @dawei ... Im sorta impatient, and may move on a 41mag with the 2.5 inch barrel ...
    But I think the a 4 inch barrel would best suit the 41 mag ..
    Thats why I went with a 4 inch barrel with the 357mag..

    I like the Taurus (S&W) design better. I like the customer service of Charter Arms better.

    I do not have a Tracker but am very pleased with my Classic Bulldog.It is most often in my pocket when I am out training bird dogs. It came with nice wood grips but I put CA rubber grips on for better control.

    I miss spoke ... At one time ,last year?
    Taurus only had a one year warranty..
    Now they have brought back the lifetime warrenty ( for the original owner)
    I also have heard there turn around is quicker than in the past with warrenty work..

    I have always had great luck with Taurus....

    @Buckeye63 - select Taurus models (like the Spectrum and G2’s) did have only a one year warranty for a short time. Most have been replaced with a limited lifetime (original owner only). Most of the revolvers were unlimited lifetime, and transitioned straight to limited lifetime.

    I had a plan... Then I saw the nitride bulldog. I now have said bulldog, and am squeezing away on snapcaps. Also have a silver dollar on the way from Simply Rugged.

    Those CA are great values. I still haven't gotten a Bulldog since I probably won't have garage space to reload until early next year. So far, CA is two for two in satisfaction for me. I just took my Undercover .38 DAO to the range, and it's a tack driver when it comes to combat distances. Even without the SA capability, until I warmed up to it I was outshooting the groups of a new 5" 1911 with the little DAO .38. Now, I got the 1911 to behave and it quickly shifted in the lead. However, for days when a pocket .38 makes the most sense, the UC is getting the nod. It's the first lightweight .38 special I can shoot better than a .380. My .380 have been regulated to invisible pocket carry. The UC stoked full of the ARX rounds is a winner.

    That said, I think a boomer or bulldog could displace it on a hiking trip;) For now, though, I'm perfectly happy with my .38 and .45 acp Charters.
