Basically, you can cock the hammer and release it with the trigger (single action) OR you can let the trigger cock the hammer And release it (double action). My revolver, Ruger GP100, works the same way, as does my semi-auto pistol, a CZ75b.

The cowboy guns that are twirled and such would be single action, so their trigger does nothing until your thumb cocks the hammer.

I haven't shot a windicator myself, but i haven't heard anything bad about them. What length barrel did you get? The only revolver i have shot that i didn't like was a snubnose, a cheapo one with tiny, wannabe Jframe grips.

Sounds good! I would start with the .38 rounds, preferably some cheapo FMJ target stuff, then try the .357 and feel the difference. When i go plinking and have the GP100, my buddies always want to shoot it while i am doing something else.

I wish I got gun money for my birthday! Your people need to talk to my wife!
The Windicators are awesome handguns. I think you will like it. People say EAA's customer service sucks, but it isn't that bad and you will probably never have to deal with them. I've owned 5 EAA firearms and they've all been golden.

Happy and safe shooting!
