That's not exactly the kind of advertisement that Charter Arms is looking for! Well, at least they have an unofficial spokesman. :wink:1gsplover said::?: Wasn't it a Ch. Arms Bulldog in .44 spl. cal. that the looney Berkowitz (sp?), aka Son of Sam, used to shoot those folks in NY? Now, THAT was a nutcase!

I can't stand a heavy trigger myself, but my understanding is that snubbies have heavy triggers to reduce the chance of them going off in your pocket. That's the best reason to own a snub (self defense) isn't it? There isn't any other category of use where a snub is more appropriate than a full sized wheelgun IMO.uglydog said:As they come from the factory, I gotta pretty much agree with Paul F. on the range of snubbies. For some reason the triggers are heavier and have more creep than on the standard size revolvers. If one lightens the trigger up to 8#, takes the creep out of it, and learns proper shooting technique then decent groups at 25 yards is pretty attainable. Of course doing the same with a standard revolver pushes its effectiveness out to 50 yards...
I'd generally agree with you. I can, however get excellent groups with my S&W 36 with a 1 7/8" barrel at 15 yards using Winchester 148gn LWC. Of course, the gun was made in about 1958 and the trigger is the best out of any revolver I've ever owned. :wink:Paul F. said:In my opinion the 2" or less guns are "belly guns" - that is, point and shoot and meant for 10 foot belly shots. :wink:
