    I agree with gpostal, my buckmark is the same way. All my ruger hunting buddies have converted to Buckmarks after shooting mine. Nothing against Ruger, they just are not nearly as accurate.

    I have shot both,the Ruger wins hands down,much more accurate than the Buckmark,mine will shoot 1/4" groups @25yds from a bench ,with scope and good match ammo,I have even outshot the S&W 41 with mine,mine may be a exception to the rule ,but I have seen other slabsides shoot very well also,as for the trigger,I did my own,got it down to 2lbs. just with polishing the sear,you can add a volquartsen speed hammer with excellent results also.

    Browning Medalist. Problem is that it looks so damn good I hate to shoot it. May not be the best .22 auto pistol, but its the prettiest.

    Me too! As an instructor and shooting enthusiast, I've handled quite a few. When I was looking hard on my purchase, I held/shot many Rugers, but the first time my hand held my Browning Buckmark, the search was over. :D

    I like the looks better, and shoots beautifully.

    Appears to be a Pardini SP model. I'm wondering why it isn't the favorite any more. What happened last month to knock that fine specimen out of your favorites? I've considered one myself.

    The reason it was my favorite is because it just wasn't being used anymore. I don't shoot bullseye anymore so I traded it off to some people that would be able to use it up to its potential. Oh by the way, it also included a complete extra bbl assembly w/ an Aimpoint Comp, 5 mags, extra spring set, etc. Besides I still have a couple of High Standards left if I get the urge.

    High Standard Model G-E it is an old model with a +/- 7" barrel but I have dropped many a squirel with it using hp ammo and to me that's an accurate pistol even though the rear site IS mounted on the slide!

    I bought a Colt Woodsman that is a real tack driver, absolutely amazing, but I think I would take my Model 41 to a match.

    Only one I’ve ever shot. Bought new by my father in 1950, and given to me by my mother after my father passed away in 1988. I never took it out of the box my mother put it in till I took it out earlier this month to take some photos of it along with a few boxes of ammo, some from the 1950's, none of which I plan to shoot. If and when I can find some ammo, I’m going to take this out and shoot it. It is fun to shoot.
