Thanks for the review. Picked one up a few weeks ago and like it... makes for a handy truck gun.

You are very welcome.
Do you have any photos? What is your opinion of the Bulldog?

Photos? Well... it looks exactly like yours.

So far so good. The barrel is a little rough, so will probably try some fire-lapping; only because it leads with my cast bullets.

Today while out of town for business I found a very nice Stratford, CT Undercover from the 1970s, and picked it up for a couple C-notes. It seems pretty well-built.

I have one, and it is seldom far from me. Good little guns that pack a big punch.

This is my Bulldog from the mid 80’s. I carried it for over 15 years and shot the 5 carry rounds every two weeks and no idea how many reloads. The only carry rounds I used were Winchester silver tips which I purchased several cases back when I was working in a gun store at the time.
In that time I have never shot anything heavier than 210 GR. The gun is still tight and shoots well. I retired it for carry years ago and went with a heavier gun but the bulldog is always the bedroom gun.
I know that there are better rounds than the silvertip but I have a lot of history with the round and still have several hundred factory. Also you can buy the Winchester bullet for reloading from Midway USA.
The other is a Taurus 455 in 44 SP
