A Charter Arms Undercover was my first snubby and it was a good little gun. I now have a preference for J-frame Smiths, but I wouldn't hesitate to carry the Charter, if I still owned it.

Howdy again Mr Evan. Its been awhile day or two since Ive posted. I just like being long on ears...

I was intending to get the Charter mag pug .357 and then c19 hit. I was on paid leave and got that stimulus check but held off oh well. My first charter was for my wife but I let it go in a trade. Just easy to carry and can ride on my ankle as a bug or in a coat pocket when working outside. Got a comfortable holster from raw dog that fits good and is breathable. But Im not giving up on a mag pug ;{)

Had a chance at a Charter stainless .357 snub yesterday but right now I want to put my money at other things. Nice looking snub

Be honest, fair, and always prepared...

Ruger SP101 2.25" DAO in strong side front pocket; Desantis holster. .357 Gold Dot or .357 Critical Defense, with .38 Special Gold Dot standing by. This has been my backup for the past 10 or so years. Had the Ruger slicked up a little by Gemini Customs in Frankfort, KY. Great work. It is now very smooth.

I like a snub for close work. Very reliable and no snag from the DAO hammer. Ammo is not the full power stuff, but have shot enough of it to have confidence that it will do its job if I do mine.

This topic reminded me of a project I haven't gotten around to doing: a few years ago, I picked up a Model 10 2" at a pawn shop. It looked a bit rough on the finish and the stocks, but the bore was clean and the action slick, so I bought it.
Turned out to be a fantastic tack driver! Color me impressed.
My "project" idea was to have a gunsmith clean up the finish, install new grips,replace springs and bob the hammer. This should make a great CC gun, especially with some of the BB 158 grain loads.
As an old-timer (77) I am still in love with wheel guns,even though I do have some modern "wonders". Nothing beats the look and feel of a good K or N frame Smith to me.( Apologies to lovers of the Colt Python).

If I ever run across a Charter Arms Undercover at a decent price, I would buy it just for old memory's sake.

Does anyone here have any experience with the new Super-Vel .38 90gr JHP snub load? I have a few boxes of it, haven't fired any of it (yet). I'm still using the Buffalo Bore 158 SWCHP-GC in the snubs.

Don't shoot the SV on .38 snubsb only all steel .357 snubs!
