Beautiful photo. Could almost qualify as a Texas barbecue gun.

Last year I took my 3" Model 65 and tried out a bowling pin match. Used 158 gr. SWC +P (non-hollowpoints). Just about everybody else had a 1911. One other geezer had the .45 ACP Jerry Miculik revolver.

I did okay first time out. They were surprised that I shot double action. They were really impressed with my reloading times with a speed loader.

Finally, one guy asked if he could shoot it. I had a trigger job done to it by a local smith and the trigger face was rounded and polished mirror finish. After shooting it he said,

"I HAVE to have one. Do they still make it?"

Alas, no.

We owners of a 3" Model 65 are truly blessed.
