Reader Comments of the Week
“Good info. I have a few guns that are from family that I store long term. I do all the normal cleaning then oiling. I have a vac-n-seal and use the roll bags. I cut the first bag to length and put the gun inside and toss one dry pac at both ends, fold up a few pieces of wax paper and place them over any sharp edges and vac-n-seal the bag. Then I cut one more bag from the roll to length and put the first bag inside the second bag and repeat the vac-n-seal. Double protection.”

“I first became acquainted with the CA 38 undercover on CHRISTMAS DAY 1968 (?) when my Father gave my Mother a gift under the Christmas tree. Talk about “Turning the other cheek” ! We lived in a very high crime Baltimore ghetto. My Mother wrote to Charter Arms about using +P loads and we have not had any problems with them for over 50 years. If you install “Crimson Trace” they will hold in your hands like glue and give you accuracy MUCH better than regular sub-nose revolvers. I only say this for my Mom’s stainless Charter Arms 38 special undercover that fires flawlessly. I think they have one of the best warranties in the business.”
– DR. JAMES SMITH, in response to Review: Charter .38 Undercover
“Solid pistol…I own the 4 inch blued version. Fits the hand well, a bit heavy, but that just helps quell the recoil from the .357 loads. All around great gun. Especially if the GP100, Python, and S&W versions are out of your price range..”
– JEROME, in response to Review: EAA Windicator
