I'm with M14, you can't beat a good H&R!
Love the 9 shots.
Take a little time, find a nice one, and it will last you a lifetime +!
Here's a couple more models to look at.
1980 Model 999 Sportsman, A little pricier these days, but, you can find
them from $ 400 NIB, to $ 250 very nice shooters. H&R's top of the line.
Model 939, great target shooter,
Couple hundred bucks.
Model 940, same as 939 but round barrel
Model 949, In case interested in cowboy/western style. Also shoots great, double action. also a couple hundred will buy a nice one!
