Bought a S&W 624 back in the 80's always loved that gun. Still have it. A real tack driver

Just picked up on Wednesday of this week (Nov. 16) a Charter Arms 44 Bull Dog. Cost $342.
Ordered some 240 gr. copper jacketed FP ammo from HL Ammo from Texas at $23/box of 50.
That is a pretty good price for new factory ammo. I also have some Underwood 200 gr wadcutters
for defense. Here is a pic of the CA 44 Bulldog along with the business end.

I like the .44 Special too!
Only have one, an S&W 296.
Apparently, S&W only made a few of these, Titanium lightweight, ugly as hell, but easy to conceal, fun to shoot.

Here is my CA 44 with original wood grips and BK grip adapter. It is extremely concealable and the grip feels great in the hand.

shot two types of ammo the other day with the gun you see in the post above.
Highland Lakes 240 gr FP FMJ shot point of aim at 10 yards. they were stiff, but manageable.
Underwood ammo, 200 gr Full wadcutters shot low and were like shooting a 357, boy they were hot and smoky.
Still carry it as my EDC along with my S&W 637 loaded with Underwood Full wadcutters.
