I have an old cheap Charter Arms Off Duty 38 special that is in far from pristine condition. I picked this thing up quite a few years ago when I was going on a motorcycle camping trip out to New Mexico. I was going to be going into a military installation where firearms were definitely off limits, but seeing as I would be camping so close to the Mexican border, I did not want to be unarmed. My solution was to hide the pistol out in the desert at my campsite before hitting the post. I did not want to take a chance of loosing anything nice, so I picked up this pistol. Biggest issue is the cylinder has a fair amount of play, front to back. Has gouges on the muzzle from what I assume was it being dropped at sometime in its life. Finish chipping from trigger guard. In my opinion it is not worth repairing. So the question is what to do with it.
