Lavender Lady - a sweet shooter!

This is the gun that inspired me to get the Goldfinger for myself. This one is my daughter's gun. I fired it the other day - just a sweet shooting snubbie. Here is a group fired single action at 8-10 yards:
The Snubbie Club

Now here is a group fired DA at about the same distance:
The Snubbie Club

I was using LAX Ammunition - 158g - CP and it all ran fine. After the paper, I really started having fun with it. One five round string went like this: (firing SA) 12oz soda can at 12 yards *blam* -gone.... 'nother 12 ouncer @ 12 *blam* - gone.... 8" round steel at 15 yard *blam* - tink!.... 7"x11.8" steel at 15-16 yards *blam* - tink!.... bowling pin at 32 yards *blam* - down!
The next cylinder-full firing double action? - took me three shots to get the two cans and I was two fer two on the steel. What more can you ask of a snubbie? Works every time and is adequately accurate. Makes me want to buy another...maybe a shamrock(?)

I think Charter Arms has finally gotten back on track. some even think their new guns are better made than their originals.

Sweet gun, and nice shooting too!

I've never owned a Charter Arms handgun, but one of those Charter .44 Special snubbies caught my eye at a gun show awhile back. I successfully talked myself out of purchasing it at the time, but it's been gnawing at me ever since.

I got a funny feeling it's soon time to have another instant background check run.

Nice little revolver. I had a Charter Arms way back in the days and it worked well for me. I may look into one for my daughter. Thanks for the thread. tom.
