    Tell you what, my buckmark space gun can really put the rounds on target. I loaded up two mags at a time and fired them ten yards out as fast as I could pull the trigger. All shots were open sights off hand.

    I'm confident I could make some pretty tight groups from a rest.

    That is a great weapon and inheritently very accurate.

    That being said, don't you have messed up eyes Goju??

    VERY good shooting for a semi blind guy. :p

    That was the same day. I'm just now getting around to posting it.

    This was the first thing I shot. I couldn't wait to shoot the buckmark. These rounds were the federal bulk ammunition (the cheap stuff) too.

    Afterwards is when "the eye incident" with the .40 spent hot brass ocurred. :eek:

    I love the Browning Buckmark. The first one I shot was a "copy" of the Amphibian by an unnamed home gunsmith I knew when I was working in Kali of all places.

    That thing cycled sub-sonic ammo like a champ and it was a tack driver. :eek:

    Love that gun and it's a great training aid because the ammo is cheap and the trigger pull isn't perfect, but it is pretty crisp right out of the box.

    I love my Buckmark, I have the Hunter model with a 7 ¼” barrel. I have put about 2500 rounds thru it and can count on one hand the number of ftf’s I’ve had and most of them were with a box of Thunderbolts. It loves the Federals and Mini-Mags.
    I’m thinking of scoping it and taking it on the next prairie dog shoot. :D

    These were all federal bulk. A couple I fired that day didn't go off, the first time. ;)

    Thunderbolts have the SUK!

    Just bought a Buck Mark Camper for my wife. She loves it. Shoots it at the range we are members of & is more accurate than the guys next to her. They are trying to hit their human target while she is grouping hers in the bullseye of her target. Kind of funny watching their reaction.

    OMG You need to send it back the grouping is all over the bulleye. Joking aside the Buckmark surprisingly accurate. I got a reddot on mine. We put a Target Ruger on a Ransom rest to test the cheap Wally World Federal bulk pack and it grouped at about 1/2 in. It was better then the CCI stingers. The Eley target was slightly better then the Wally World.

    The target shown was federal bulk ammo, fired rapidly, off hand (no rest).

    I imagine I could get some pretty tight groups from a rest with better ammo. I'll try that next time, but I know the buckmark is very accurate. The trigger i pretty nice too. :)

    Federal Auto Match is one you should try. My Camo Camper loves the stuff. During breakin, AM was the first ammo to fire cleanly mag after mag. My Camper shoots anything now, but I do not shoot Rem. ammo. I also use Fed AM in my Browning Medalist, Challenger II, CZ 452, Rem Mdl Five, and my Sav MKIIg. CCI mini-mags, Fed 510b and Win SS HPs are also good. I prefer the 40 gr. slightly subsonic loads, but the Fed Bulk does fine. Just not quite the POA accuracy of the others. Tb[​IMG] 50 foot target just playing around when I first got my Camo Camper. 30 rounds or so as I remember. :D tb
