What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

Hummm, I remember my old Army buddy had one of these. In fact, his is the reason I wanted one of my own.
Of course, the newer ones are different.
I liked his better than the one that lives here since 2012.

Glad CA is making them again. I hope the new classic ones are as good as the older classic ones.

Hey, Taurian...
Where's Hickock's accent from?
Georgia?
Alabama?

It doesn't sound "northern" enough for Tennessee, nor "southern" enough for Florida or Mississippi or Louisiana. But I have lost a lot of my hearing discernment, along with my hearing, so I can't tell.

Hickok45 is actually from Kentucky by birth, but has lived in Tennessee for most of his life. He was a middle-school English teacher before he retired.

I handled a Charter Arms Bulldog in 44 Special, ended up buying the Ruger GP100 in 44 Special.

And is, in my opinion, a very solid revolver to use for this cartridge. Good choice!

I have to agree with Taurian on this issue.
The materials and construction of a Ruger is light-years beyond that of CA.

I don't know this, but I'm thinking the price would be about double as well.

Edited: I love the .44 special round. Sigh. However, I decided to back away from it a few years ago due to scarcity of ammo, at least around here.

In my case the difference was around $183 more for the Ruger.

I have a Charter Arms 44 special, but it is not a bulldog. Also have a C A in 38spl I purchased new in 1982. Both of my revolvers have the heavy 4" brl. The quality is not what a S W Or Ruger would be, but they are still reliable revolvers.

You guys might remember that Jean (and I) inherited a Charter Arms revolver from her dance mentor.
It had serious cylinder-endshake issues, and the problem came with the gun from the factory.

But the issue was very easily solved by means of a washer-like shim, made to correct a similar issue in S&W revolvers. The gunsmithing job was so easy and quick that the 'smith hardly charged us for it.

Since then, not only has this revolver been reliable, but also it has an excellent, light-pull trigger.
