    Cool Model 65.....

    Heading out to the range today for the first firing of the new to me Model 65.

    A little cleaning up on the inside with Gun Scrubber and CLP and on the out side with Flitz and a new set of Ahern Tactical Finger Groove grips and she looks like she is ready to dance.

    I have been without a 65 for almost 20 years and am excited to see if the feeling is still there (I know it is).

    Just in case anyone is interested the below is the Gun Broker dealer that I got mine from. Jeff is good people.

    S&W Model 65, 357mag, 6 Rnd, 3", stainless : Revolvers at GunBroker.com
