    Well I am selling my Taurus PT-25 Monday and bought me a EAA Windicator .357 magnum today. I'll post pics when I get to pick it up, thanks to Illinois 72 hour mandatory weight.

    .357 is always a good gun. Everyone should have one. .357 and .44 are my favorites.

    I had a 2 inch Windicator. Nice gun. Shoots great. But it is heavy. For the money it is a good buy though. You should enjoy it. Recoil is much more manageable with the Windicator that with some of the air weight guns. There are pluses to having a heavy gun. Congrats.

    yeah thats what this one is, is a 2". Didn't seem that heavy to me, but I'm use to heavier guns. Seems pretty balanced out on weight though. Only paid $269 for it out the door. It is used but looks like a new one. It's barely been used.

    I had a four inch windicator. It was a little on the heavy side, but it was a good gun. Ended up letting it go at a loss to a friend and actually kind of miss that gun.

    Omg love this gun. I have the 4" nickel. Gun shoots. 38's like a tack driver up to 25 yards. No recoil. .357's are manageable. Gun has sexy looks and the nickel 4" is very rare. I got mine from grabagun.com for 310.00 out the door.

    I wish it was in nickel. but I'm fine w/ it being blued, for the price I paid I'm happy with it. My hand is about half healed completely and I don't have ammo or cash right now anyway and only get paid once a month, so hopefully by February rolls around I'll have the money and my hand will be healed enough I can take this baby out out to the range and have some fun.

    Looks nice. I'll wait and see how mine shoots first and then decide if I want to see about getting one in Nickel. And actually according to EAA's website, only the blued .38's were Alloy, all of the .357's are done in steel and you can tell mine is all steel despite being blued.
