Just picked up one of these: http://www.charterfirearms.com/products/Charter_Off_Duty_53811.html Seriously, it's a sweet little thing. Could have spent a bit more for a Smith or the new Ruger, but I liked the Charter. I know it's been beat to death, but just was fishing for thoughts, as what load to carry. Been ages since I carried a 2-inch .38 Special. I'm looking at a box of Remington 158gr. "FBI loads." Still, a lot of new designs out there, that look promising. The "short barrel" Speer Gold Dot comes to mind, as does the Cor Bon DPX. The Federal Nyclad is back, but I have seen evidence, that it goes 18+ inches, after heavy clothing. It looked great in bare jello, but we know what that's worth. Just fishing for fun, on the subject. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
