I’ll probably be inheriting a model 65…..my father( 83 yrs old, 140 lbs) called last night from Charlotte to tell me he had received his concealed carry card (didn’t know he had applied for one!) and to celebrate had just purchased a stainless model 65 so he could “scare off the bad guys”. I don’t have a problem with his logic, just with his choice of weapon. I’m a bit concerned over his selection, thinking maybe a smaller more manageable caliber would serve him better. Logic says, yea, you can shoot 38 specials instead of the hotter 357, but if that’s the case, why not just buy a 38 special? I think he has way more gun then he needs or can handle. So I’m thinking I need to get him a replacement the next time he’s up to visit. He doesn’t really carry, just keeps it in the car, and wouldn’t shoot a gun enough to become totally familiar or proficient with it. My preference would be a revolver since it’s a bit more straight forward for the novice shooter than a semi. So any thoughts on the matter guys (and girls if any) on a good user friendly revolver?
