Gun nuts still in here? Ruger mark 3 or Browning Buckmark?

Gun nuts still in here? Ruger mark 3 or Browning Buckmark?

PostBy: cheapheat On: Sun Sep 16, 2007 11:34 am

Hey everyone I shoot steel plates and bowling pins for fun and competition with my buckmark pistol and want a second 22 for shooting the open sight class. Most people I talk too have very strong opinions toward the ruger or the browning depending on what they own. There are some S&W 22 shooters too but I havent heard anything great from them.Just curious if anyone in here has an opinion or similar experience. Astetically the Buckmark wins hands down for me, and Ive heard the ruger is really finicky about being kept clean(nota strong point for me) I look forward to you replies. Jim[/img]

I'm personally fond of the Ruger, but it's really a personal choice you must make yourself. A few hundred rounds usually sets the tone. I never thought about the cleaning aspect being a biotch, the only real pain is breaking down the Ruger entirely.

Ruger, No question about it! I have a MKII with over 1 Million rounds through it. clean it every 1000 rds. These guns don't break. The Buck Mark is fragile compared to the Ruger.

Nice selection Gary.
I sold my Beretta Brigader .40 S&W Elite II in SST to my youngest awhile back, nice sidearm but it's a bit large for everyday carry.

Stupid size restriction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I should upload a 30mb movie right now JUST because I can!

I some handsome pics of previous firearms (Astra 600, Makarov, Lew Horton S&W .44mag Custom, etc...) but I don't wanna have to upload them to Photobucket at a reduced size JUST so that I may share them here. Nor do I want to alter/change the file size from my 350kb average size to be compliant with the rules.

Hmmph!

Haaaa! Al-righty then Gary.....you gots plenty-O fine shootin irons that's for sure. The pics are fine, they don't need to be bigger than what you posted IMO.
You could always copy the originals and then reduce the resolution to make them more user friendly. This way you retain the Pics at the Large File format as well, I save copies like this for important pictures all the time, just rename the copy with an acronym like .LR ( for low res).... just a thought.

Cheapheat, I don't see any info between your image [img] tags, I believe your missing something.
When you click the browse tab, locate the picture you want and that should now show up in the window....click the upload tab and you should be in business.
