Charter Arms Pitbull 9mm review by American Rifleman

Charter Arms Pitbull 9mm

So where exactly does the Charter Pitbull 9mm fit into the average defense plan? A rugged, simple, stainless-steel snubbie revolver that is affordable makes a great concealed-carry or home-defense gun. The 9 mm chambering, when fired with standard pressure loads, keeps it both comfortable and affordable for practice, and successful elimination of the need for moon clips makes loading and reloading the Pitbull as convenient as any other defensive revolver. For law enforcement officers, it’s a sensible back-up gun. For those who already own and shoot 9 mm semi-autos, the Pitbull can be added to your shooting set without the addition of another caliber of ammunition to stock up on.

The Charter Arms Pitbull is without a doubt one of the most interesting revolvers to hit the market of late. 9mm is often quite a bit hotter than .38 SPL not to mention more compact. This six-shooter is the size of a J-frame but brings a lot more oomph to the table.

The only question is, why can’t Ruger make a six-shot 9mm LCR? (Or .327 Magnum LCR, for that matter.)
