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