Charter Arms Bulldogs ain't fancy and are less expensive than other wheelguns , but they are well made and rugged and best of all they WORK. One in .44 Special would make a very good SD gun and ammo is easy enough to find. If you handload you can can even get some very good ammo with about any styl slug you and the Bulldog like. I would NOT hotrod the loads just work up a good near max load that shoots good for you and the gun. Good luck and keep us in the loop, take care, John.
It's not what you do, but how you do what you do, that counts.
Just keep on keeping on!
