Chambered in .32 H&R Magnum, the Charter Arms PROFESSIONAL puts a new twist on the carry revolver.
How the Charter Arm PROFESSIONAL is made for carry:
- Chambered in powerful, yet manageable .32 H&R Magnum.
- Seven-round capacity.
- Light 22-ounce weight.
- Three-inch barrel maintains cartridge's ballistics, while keeping revolver wieldy.
Generally speaking, many defensive firearms experts draw the line at the .380 ACP. Any lesser caliber and you’re playing with fire. Though, in this conversation, often lost in the mix is the newer generation of .32-caliber cartridges that have come about in the past 30 or so years. These magnum 32s might have the same diameter of their predecessors, but more than makes up for this with the energy they deliver on target.
One of the originals, the .32 H&R Magnum, is finding new life in the self-defense world with the introduction of the Charter Arms PROFESSIONAL. The ominous looking seven-round revolver is set for release at the May 17-19 Concealed Carry Expo in Pittsburg, Pa. And for armed citizens who tend toward wheelguns for everyday carry, the revolver looks to have what it takes to send their eyebrows north.
Next to capacity, excellent for a revolver, the Charter Arms PROFESSIONAL’s dimensions appear right on target for an easily concealable revolver. The stainless-steel framed revolver tips the scales at a very manageable 22 ounces (unloaded) and boasts a 3-inch barrel, which should help the .32 H&R Magnum live up to its ballistic potential, without making the gun unwieldy. The PROFESSIONAL is finished off with a satin Blacknitride+™ finish, contoured walnut grip and a green light-pipe front sight and integral rear.

The PROFESSIONAL, designed with input from Concealed Carry Magazine’s editorial staff, isn’t Charter Arm’s first foray into the .32 H&R Magnum. The company’s 2-inch barreled, 5-round Undercoverette has also been available in the chambering for some time. In either case, the revolvers feed on a powerful cartridge, which, according to Cartridges of the World, 14th Edition can push a 90-grain bullet 1,150 fps at the muzzle and deliver 13-percent more energy than a .38 Speical.
