Thread: don't buy someone else's problem; increase budget to $269 and you can get a new Ruger MK II or III. I prefer the 5.5" bull barrel but for more $$$ you can get it fluted, more $$$ stainless etc.
I agree, you will find yourself far better off by waiting until you can afford a little better quality gun, the ruger mark 2 is great, I don't have any experience with the 3, the Browning buckmark I have found to be a fun shooter, and in the revolver you can't beat the ruger single six, or single ten if you prefer.
