NRA Gun of the Week: Charter Arms Boomer Revolver

Charter Arms has been in the business of making affordable wheelguns for more than a half century, and this week we asked Brian Sheetz to dive into a .44 Spl. example that is designed purely for concealed carry. This matte stainless, double-action-only revolver is compact and snag-free by design. The barrel’s two ports help mitigate recoil of the 20-oz. package and is certainly where its name “Boomer” comes from.
