    Mazel tov on your new gun.

    To tide the rest of you over, here's my customized 65-5:

    Ok,
    I don't have a way to post pics tonight, but here's a link to the auction with pictures. The gun is highly polished except for the top. The grips are gorgeous. It doesn't appear to have had a hard life.

    I've been packing my 3" Ruger GP100 in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II.

    You may want to give them a call. It's a great holster, and may work well for you and that Model 65.

    Nice looking 65 roadside.

    Erich, what grip is that on your 65?

    Great find! With a quality holster, that'll be one fine carry piece.
    Cheers,

    Andy, that's the inexpensive hard nylon "Hideout" stock that you can buy from Brownell's on my gun. It turns out that it points very naturally in my hand and conceals very well . . . but it's not the best thing for recoil. Truth is, it hurts pretty good when I launch a hot one. But, I carry the gun more than I shoot it, so they work for me.
