I Call Her "Vera"
 
1 Attachment(s)
Of all the revolvers I've fired, this old model 65 Taurus .357 mag wins my heart. A little tough to figure out sometimes at the ranges, but has never given me a reason to doubt it. This was passed down to me from my father when I turned 18. I believe it is from the late 70's/early 80's era, but I can't be sure. The history behind this gun is a little muddy, as it began life as my grandfather's personal carry. Perhaps some of the more knowledgeable members might help shed some light on her past.

Not what some would consider "flashy" by any means, but it is my pride and joy. :D

Nothing wrong with that weapon. It's got a story and meaning to you personally. If it's be reliable for you that makes it all the better. There is certainly nothing wrong with a good shooting 357, nothing at all.

I like revolvers myself. I swap my inventory around a lot but the gun I've had the longest is a S&W 686+, 3 inch 7 shot .357 revolver...

One nice .357!! Great story, thanks for sharing it.

Very awsome story. Do you plan on passing it down to your child when he is old enough?

Well, I personally have no children. Whether or not I ever have any in the future is up for debate. Regardless, I have been slowly exposing my nephew to firearms and firearm safety. And if there ever was a child that people could mistake for mine, it would be him. I'm pretty sure that it will eventually be passed down to him, though not for some time. I'm not too comfortable about him learning on a double action revolver yet. His firearm education is coming from an old Ruger .22 magnum, which coincidentally, was the same exact gun I learned on.
