    I gave my Browning Buckmark (Oh, I shot. I hit it.) to my 23 yo dau and her hub. 1993 vintage.
    Ideas? Best I've had was to buy another Buckmark...laser sight be dimmed.
    thanks for your suggestions

    Most target 22s are not made to accept a laser. Lasers = tacticool, not target.

    I love my kids but I'm not giving them my .22 pistol. But I'll help them choose their own. :D

    I use a Browning Buckmark with a red dot. You can get a red dot with a laser but you cannot use it in competition. This is one accurate package. I have split playing card with it @ 25 ft. You can get get more accurate 22s but it will be in the $1,000+ range.

    What you need is a Buck Mark with a bottom rail!

    If yer gonna use a laser, it doesn't just have to be mounted underneath. Get a Buckmark Silhouette, or a hunter, and set the laser on top.

    MrWray and Winds O.C.: the pistol was purchased for me by her grandfather. She's sentimental and they have some church friends in the first large city they live in that shoot on closed ranges. Just a little encouragement for them to take the sport.

    Thanks for the ideas. I want an under-mounted laser on a .22 with a fine trigger as a practice piece. I've begun carrying a Kahr .380 with a Crimson Trace (Yes, I know, and I generally carry a real gun too- Glok 9 or S&W Mdl 19). Even practicing with a gross triggered Glock or my .44 Anaconda with a 2X Aimpoint, I start and stop each session with a nicely triggered .22.

    Is there an option to mount a laser underneath one of the Buckmarks? I've not seen one

    Wouldn't recommend a Mk III unless you're ready to put in a trigger kit...

    Look at the S&W 22

    I am funny about triggers.

    I have a S&W Mdl 15 revolver which I taught myself to shoot with righthanded in my early 20's. I'm correct-handed but right eye dominant. Used to take friends new to my guns, hand it to them and say,"make sure the muzzle is pointed at the berm and try it single action.' Then wathc as they shot somewhere into the berm as they were looking for the front sight.

    My Ruger 10-22 which for some reason has a scary accurate barrel from the factory sports a Volquarsten trigger. My main partner in crime shot twice at a squirrel "hidden" in a tree crotch, before he got the scope on him.

    Thanks pms35 and Part Two.

    Pardon me for my apparent lack of style and my lack of manners on the Forum and apparent lack of safety with firearms. All of the people that shot either the Smith revolver or the Ruger 10/22 are veterans with firearms.

    All shooters, no matter the initial experience of the revolver, went on to shoot pretty well. We shoot mostly in double action with this gun . The reason to have a delicate trigger on a revolver. The caveat to have the barrel safely down range was a precautionary warning on my part. It was probably unnecessary- but required.

    My partner in crime had shoot my 10/22 maybe a 100 times and on several occasions. We had swapped several types of ammo between his 10/22 and mine using a bench. Learned the rule of finicky .22's with him. When he shot the tree twice before the squirrel, I figured he was too hungry.
