The 3" Model 65 is the finest concealed carry revolver in existance.
I have checkered wood grips on mine. I've found that smooth grips slide around in my hand when I get nervous and sweaty, like when preparing to shoot a bad guy.
The Goodyear grips are too tacky, sticking to my cover garment.
The stainless works well in the hot, humid climate of Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties.
