Would like to hear what you guys think
Your top choices for an accurate, long lasting reliable plinker will most likely boil down to Browning or Ruger depending on your preference.
Years ago I had every intention on getting a famed Ruger Mark II. However when I finally got to the gun show and actually held one in my hand, I didn't really care for the feel of the slanted grip.
The dealer also had a Browning Buck Mark Camper and when I picked it up, the feel of the straight, contured rubberized grips felt great and were a 100% improvement over the Ruger's grips and bought it on the spot.
The Ruger 22/45 had not come out yet, I like the the style better than the Mark II-III but, the Browning still feels better in the hand, has a 3.5 lb. trigger pull out of the box and have never had a problem with it over the years of shooting it.
