Boomsticks: Gratuitous Gun Pr0n No. 14

An almost-complete set of 3" fixed-sight K-frames:



Left to Right: Model 547 9mm, Model 10-8 .38 Special, Model 65-2 .357 Magnum, and a PC13 .357 Magnum.

Most of the old shooters I looked up to when I first got interested in handguns considered these to be just the berries in a CCW gun. Their ideas must have stuck with me, because I still get weak in the knees over these wheelguns in a way I don't over any other pistol.

Beautiful set of wheelguns; I've always had a preference for revolvers (though I do have some autoloaders). My only Colt (most of mine are Ruger Blackhaws), I'm afraid, is a Bisley Peacemaker in 38-40, manufactured in 1984. It still shoots sweet, however.

I'm happy to see they all have practical wood grips on them. I've never had a 547; the others are old friends. I carried a pair of Model 13 3-inch revolvers in the late 80s. I always had trouble picking up the stainless front sight of the 64/65s, although they fared better in the summertime in a sweaty IWB rig.

Thanks for sharing. How has the 547 held up? I wondered at the time how the extractor would hold up.

I learned handguns with a Model 13 and a Model 65. And I can STILL hip-shoot better with the 65 than anything else.

Nice guns. My carry gun is a 3" Model 65. My spare carry gun is a 3" Model 13.
