    Found this site: Looks really good. PDF format.

    proveit.www8.50megs.com/
    Click on "download targets" and you're good to go.

    Also: Has anyone had any experience with a Beretta model 87 target pistol? I know it's accurate, just looking for reliability (feeding, firing, durability, etc.) info.

    Thanks all.

    And the 87 is $500 for a plinker. Get a Ruger............ for half.

    Ruger's probably the way to go.

    Any noticable difference betweent the bull (target) and tapered barrel when it comes to accuracy? It is STEEL.


    I just want something Italian until I get that Ferrari.


    Broke as ever,

    i recently got a ruger 45/22 with a 4" bull barrel cause it feels good. in a longer barrel it might make a difference is accuracy but not in a 4 ". a ruger mark 2 has a bit more angle on the grip. otherwise same gun. foolproof weapon.

    they go at auctionarmsdotcom for 220 ect. i paid 239 at my gun shop.

    Reply Thanks, but...

    Fact is, despite my pipe dreams, I'm looking to spend like 250 or less on a pistol.
    Walther P22 looks nice and I think I could get the feed problem fixed (magazine issue).

    I just don't like the look of the Ruger as much, and the rotary bolt I don't like. Blowback is the way to go for me.

    Anything I'm forgetting? Taurus revolvers are crap.
    Beretta 87 Cheetah? Still 400, but...

    I've been really impressed with my Beretta 87T. I'm still searching for which ammo it likes the best as far as accuracy/price goes, but so far it has eat everything it was fed. The only dislike I have for the gun is the plastic grips feel really sharp textured to me and I replaced mine with a walnut set off a model 85. I'm taking it to the range 'scoped' for the first time this week. Can't wait.

    Be sure to lemme know what happens at the range Trog! I agree, plastic stinks.

    Hurry! I'm back at this forum and antsy to drool over guns I can't legally buy yet again.
