    Here's my contribution to the thread. I picked it up today...While I've had revolvers before, I've always thought of my self as a auto guy, but I think I've been missing out on a pretty cool platform.

    There's some good looking revolvers in this thread.

    I think revolvers just look nicer for some reason.

    Add to the club...

    I now have two in my collection. The Lawman 357 is a great gun really shoots well and the Taurus is new in the rotation mainly a BUG. Though I carry it, IWB, pocket, & ankle depending on situation and wardrobe.

    This thread has been rested for a while. I've got to get the pics, and I will, but I've got a Dan Wesson w/4 barrels and the 2" barrel qualifies me for a snub. It's a bit different than my 638 but it might get the juices flowing in the superduper......

    Yeah, the thread is back!

    That Charter Arms On Duty is a bit different. I've not paid close attention to the Charter Arms line in recent years. The On Duty looks a bit like a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard. Do give us a shooting report after you try it out.

    I just bought a Ruger SP101 .357 2" bbl. It has quickly become my EDC (over my .40 and two 9mms). Put 100 rounds through it yesterday, and man, what a kick. A bit punchier than the 38s. Out of 10 handguns, I'm up to 4 snubbies. I'll have to take a snub group photo and post.

    I am thinking about picking up one of those Windicators.

    I haven't really heard much about them. Are they any good?

    I bought a 4" .357 Windicator a few months back for double-duty - It's a nightstand gun for my wife when I'm away (she doesn't like autos), and it's a snake gun for use at our rural property - I've killed dozens of copperheads with a .38 snubbie & shot loads, but figured the 4" barrel would let me reach out & touch 'em from a little further away. The fit & finish are fine, for the price, and the action works flawlessly. I haven't fired it much with .357 ammo - mostly just .38's and shotshells.

    The Windicator is no Colt or Smith, but for half the money, it's a great knockaround gun. I've considered getting another one for the tackle box.

    Dunno about the snubbie version. My personal opinion is that the frame's a tad big for a CCW, but I'm more of an auto guy. For a budget CC revolver, I think I'd be more inclined towards a Charter Arms or Taurus .38. Just my opinion, FWIW!

    Regards,
    Jim

    Like Kilowatt3 said, It's a good knock-around gun. The 2" snubbie version is accurate enough, but the heavy DA trigger pull makes practice hard on my hands. (artheritis). The recoil isn't bad, but after a dozen or so DA shots, my hand hurts.
    May just need some trigger work by a gun smith.
