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.
