Talking to a buddy of mine at work and we were talking about pistols. I've been thinking about getting another one. My buddy has been doing a bunch of research online and he's settled on an EAA Windicator .357 revolver. He showed me a bunch of YouTube vids and some articles about the pistol and it has me intrigued. You can get the blued 2" inch barrel model for $300 or less. Seems pretty nice. Concealable which I like and still a good home defense weapon.

Since there are members here with firearms knowledge, I thought I'd ask your opinions. Would anyone here go with one of these or have a better option revolver-wise?

Shoot one first. 357 in a small gun is barely shootable. I'm no wimp, but there's no way you can quickly shoot five or six rounds quickly in a small 357.

Get a used S&W model 10 or 64. One without a lock or MIM parts. They're the nicest revolvers ever made, and a LEO trade in can be had cheap and the gun will long outlive you.

10 being blued and 64 is SS.

The Ruger sp101 is the only revolver that has ever felt comfortable in my hands(I have long fingers/big hands)
but I generally dislike revolvers because they feel uncomfortable to me and they don't hold as many rounds as an auto.

What about a knife. With a paintball on the tip. A paintballknife, if you will.

I miss the days when someone legitimately suggested strapping a bingo marker to a barrel as a bayonet.
