The 3 64 and 65 are real gems. I carried a 4 65 in unicorned attire and a 3 65 in PC and OD for years; until they forced a double action only, one size fits all semi-auto down our throats.

The elite powers inside the belt way fell in love with the ideas of increased ammunition capacity without a reload, no manual external safety works just like a revolver but with a lower standard level of proficiency test by and through elimination of the 50 yard line stage of fire and the enlargement of the maximum point scoring area.

Well, it did not work just like a revolver. Many long time wheel gun users like myself saw their proficiency suffer with the mandatory switch. Does public or officer safety improve or decline from less proficiency?

Well the administrative chair born ranger types thought if all had the same magazines in the same caliber; the less proficient could acquire magazines from others after going completely dry due their spray and pray style tactics. Fortunately, no such incidents ever came to pass. However, the office bound clowns slept better at night.

Proficency and confidence matters. I would ask myself if I would sleep better at night after the trade you contemplate. I would much prefer to buy the square gun and hang onto to that wheel gun.
