AT815a shotgun

A friend is selling one of these at hopefully a good price.  I'm wondering 
if it might make a worthwhile alternative to my Telinga, for recording 

Quite a few folk on this list seem to use shotguns, and I sometimes wonder 
what I'm missing (having never used a shotgun before).  But I kind of 
imagine this AT815a will be quite noisy, susceptible to wind noise, and 
unwieldy (it's about 20 inches long, with connector!).

Recorder is PCM-M10.

Any thoughts appreciated!
