Charter Arms has been making revolvers for
decades now. I have used and owned
several of them, and still do. They have always served me
well. For a long time, they were all-steel revolvers, but
recently Charter has started producing revolvers with
lightweight alloy frames for easier carrying. These five-shot
.38 Special revolvers weigh in at about twelve ounces. We
have reviewed them here before, but the purpose of this
piece is to introduce the new frame coloring that Charter is
putting on these little revolvers. The anodizing is applied in
such a way that no two revolvers are exactly the same.
Shown here are the new cats from Charter: The
Cougar and The Panther. The Cougar wears a pink pattern anodized
finish on the frame, and The Panther a mottled bronze. Both are
chambered for the .38 Special cartridge, and can handle Plus P
rated ammunition, to quickly resolve unpleasant social
conflicts. Both have synthetic grips, and The Cougar's grip is
more compact than the grip on The Panther. Both are very
comfortable to my hand.
As I have tested many Charter revolvers
before, and am writing this to show the new design more than
anything else, I am leaving these two revolvers unfired for now.
The reason for that is that we are going to give one of these
away on February 14th, 2010, just in time for Valentines day!
The winner will have his or her choice of the two revolvers. We
have several female Gunblast members, who may or may not prefer
the pink Cougar, or a man might want to give it to his wife,
particularly if she is the cougar type of woman. Anyway, some
lucky Gunblast member will win the choice of these revolvers.
The Charter Panther and Cougar are dandy
little lightweight revolvers, and would serve very well for an
everyday carry gun.
