Well, the JHO staff hasn't arrived in Orlando yet, but I did receive a press release in the mail today about a product that will be revealed at the 2007 SHOT show in Orlando Florida this week (Jan 10-14).
Charter Arms, from Dayton Ohio are producing a light weight left handed revolver for the often neglected left-handed shooter (which comprises up to 15% of the adult population).
Charter Arms new Undercover Southpaw is a true left-handed revolver. The Southpaw's cylinder release is on the right side and the cylinder opens to the right side so the left-handed shooter's weak side (right hand) can be more efficient and safer to reload. Until now, revolver reloading for the left handed shooter has been awkward at best.
Model: Undercover Southpaw (Model # 93820)
Caliber: .38 Special +P
Capacity: 5 rounds
Weight: 12 ounces (super tough 7075 aircraft aluminum alloy one piece solid side plate frame)
Barrel Length: 2 inch
Price: MSRP $375 ($16 higher than its right handed brethren)
Pictured below is the right handed Undercover model.
If anyone is interested in more info regarding this product, I'd be happy to check in with Charter Arms and ask any questions or take photos and post them here.
