    I can't be the only one out here. While I really like the new bulldogs in .44 special, it couldn't hurt to say make one in a more available round......perhaps .45 LC? Hell, that would be the bee's knees as far as I'm concerned:D

    Not just the bee's knees, but the cat's pajamas as well. I would gladly stand in line for a .45lc bulldog

    They seem to be a pretty small and quite frankly customer oriented business....(Marlin on the other hand must have sent all their biggest A-Holes.) Anyway, perhaps if we stirred up enough interest, we could get it thrown into production.

    How about a Smith, 45 acp, 5 shot snub nosed using moon clips. Stainless and hammerless would be OK by me.

    I don't know that .45 LC in rounds that aren't for Cowboy Action are any more available than .44 Special. And anything hotter would be a handful from a 22 ounce gun.
    Really, the quality of the newer incarnations of Charter Arms seems iffy. I don't think asking them to bore bigger holes in the same cylinder is the smart thing to do.
    That L-framed .45 ACP sounds good, in a package like the 619/620.

    I second the 45 ACP. Quick reloads and plenty of good 45 ACP loads. Of course make it headspace on the case mouth so it can fire without moonclips if needed.

    /Owns 3" Bulldog in 44 Special.

    I wonder if the old 947 spring system would be feasible. Probably not from a cost standpoint. But a 22 ounce or heavier .45 ACP would be controllable.

    .45 Bulldogs?

    I like my .44spls. But one I cringed about firing was the C/A Bulldog. Seemed to me like there were so many extra sharp edges that I got a recoil cut every time I fired mine. One in .45 would be too much for me. Not saying anything bad about Charter Arms, mind you. They make good, affordable revolvers. Just that by the time I got enough porting and rubber grips on one it's be so bulky I'd leave it at home.:eek:

    Personally, I'd rather have the Taurus.

    Me too

    McGunner said<<"Personally, I'd rather have the Taurus."..

    Yeah me too. I got a used Mod. 450 Taurus, in .45Colt, a few
    years ago, for about $250.
    Good solid piece of SS, ported. Feels good in y'ur hand.
    Lights up at night though.
    I carry it once in awhile.
    It always roars.

    +1 on the 45acp bulldog.
    I have the undercover .38 not a bad gun for the price.

    .44 Spl works for me. I do not find .45LC to be higher on the availability list. :uhoh:

    Never say never ...

    I once said that nothing could ever make me spend money on a Taurus revolver for use as a dedicated defensive weapon.

    I was wrong.

    Remembering the personal experiences I've had with a blued 3" C/A Bulldog, and then a stainless 3" C/A Bulldog, would push me into buying a Taurus ... IF those were the only two revolver manufacturers left on the planet, and I HAD to pick one. :neener:

    Smith already makes a .45acp snubbie. The 625-10. I had one and dumped it. I wanted to love that gun, but alas it was not meant to be. It beat the holy hell out of me. Scandium has no place in a firearm period. If they were to re-issue it in stainless steel, then I may give it another try.


    Also just saw a S&W 625-11 in .45 LC. Same look as the 625-10, but with a full size cylinder. Still made uber lightweight so no dice with me.

    HiWayMan, they also have a version of the 325 from the PC with a 1.5" barrel.
