Dick Jones says that, at least for him , the Charter Arms Bulldog in .44 Special works as a carry gun. His argument has its points. The simplicity of the revolver couple with a potent cartridge has much to recommend it to those of us who carry concealed. Unlike Dick, I do worry about the speed of reloads. Yeah, I'm not very likely to have to use it in a self defense situation, and even less likely to have to reload during one. I am not, however, willing to bet my life on the proposition that I will never have to.
Feel free to argue for either side in comments.
