I have had a 3" 65-3 to use as the home defense pistol for a few years now and wanted to try for another similar revolver. I found this 4" 64-1 earlier this year to add to the home guard. The 64 looked like it had never had the inside lube changed since new with congealed grease throughout. It responded well with a good cleaning.

The 3" 65 is really a great revolver. That and my 2.5" 19 are two of my favorites to shoot. I used to carry the 65 but I would be devistated if I had to use it and it had to be locked away in some evidence room forever so now it's just a range/farm gun. I really wish I had bought more of the k frames when they were cheap.

If you are looking for another, J&G sales has some 64 turn ins that aren't an arm and a leg.

I appreciate that, but honestly with a 4" 65,66, & 67 i really don't "need" anymore. want on the other hand.......

Happy shooting

Yes, they feel nice and shoot well, too. You should get some practice drawing from your preferred type of concealed carry and point shoot at around 6 to 15 feet. After a bit of practice, it will surprise you how accurate you can be simply point shooting from a quick draw position.

That is pretty much the distance I practice. I bring the pistol up from beneath and when the laser comes to point of aim I squeeze. I can get at least 1 aimed and centered round per second. Then I move up right then down to bring it up again. That is the way I practice with all my pistols. People say watching me fire it looks like I am waving all over the place, but the target shows it is working.

Also, sorry for the late reply, I'm not getting my notifications for some reason.

Define "cheap."

They still are cheap when they pop up.

Remember, $400 today is worth less than $100 in 1977 money.

Three inch revos are cool. I don't own any though.:facepalm: Some day maybe. I am reminded of what the old timey gun dealer said: " 3" barrels are for guys that can't make up their minds". They sure look just right though.

The 3" 64's and 65's seem to balance well with their heavy barrels.

One of my favorite revolvers to shoot is my 3 inch barrel Model 65.

It's badged as a "LadySmith" but it is the best combination of features

on a revolver I have ever had.

This ^^^^^. IMO a 3" 65 is one of the finest revolvers out there.
