Hence a better made gun.. S&W! I'd even accept an 'airweight' L frame 5 shot fixed sighted 2 1/2 inch bbl .44 spl. without the child lock.
Yea, I hear your need, I do too. I didn’t mean to say that the Taurus was the answer to all needs but they did make a stronger gun than the Charter but in my case a POS.
S&W did make a light weight 44 special hammerless the S&W 296 AirLite Titanium back in the late 80’s or early 90’s with a 2 ½ inch barrel.
I owned one but the recoil was so brutal even compared to the Bulldog that I didn’t keep it. Something about the shortness and grip angle that really hurt the web of my hand.
I saw one for sale several weeks ago at a local GS and the nit wits wanted 1200$ for it. I know times are crazy but that’s stupid.
If Ruger did make one in 44 special, I would buy one for myself, one for the wife and one for the safe.
