I don't know about enclosed, but one nifty thing about Charter is that they will sell you factory bobbed DAO hammers. They're inexpensive, and installing them is a 5 minute process.

The Pachmayr grip that Buckeye! shows in his first pic makes a big difference in taming the recoil of the 44 Bulldog. I've had mine for several years now, and its a ROCKSTAR. I love shooting that big cartridge in a small revolver. I like it so much, I'm seriously thinking about the 45ACP Pitbull.

Thanks, Buckeye! I like that shrouded hammer design for pocket carry-and it still allows you to cock it for sa use if wanted.

Those BOOMERS are made for jamming between the ribs and firing into the assailant's bowels. Very cool and horrifically lethal "gidoffme" guns.

I got my first Charter Arms BULLDOG CLASSIC last week.

I know I'm going to like it.

I'm so tired of hearing how every handgun for concealed carry is intended only for point blank belly work. The Charter .44's are capable of much more. Even the Boomer is when equipped with a laser grip.

People wanna know what a true belly gun is? A north American arms mini revolver, a .25 pistol, a .410 derringer.

Congrats! I like mine for a house/cc gun. 240g SWC standard loads are what I shoot in it.

recoil is stout but manageable and it fits in a J-frame holster.
