Hope you have plenty of money for ammo. It's expensive.
1) I can afford any of them it is just a matter of saving enough cash.
2) I want the gun to be accurate enough for my use and it looks like the service grade will be and is also the cheapest available.
3) enough to afford my shooting wants and needs.
Also thanks to everyone for their advice.
