Morning gents and thanks for the info. I'll check into the Buckmark and Taurus 9 shot. MT - have you had any reliability issues with your Buckmark? A couple of .22 boards indicate the Buckmark is prone to jamming and not nearly as long lived as the Ruger MK series?
Scotty - your statement is true but remember now, when my Bisley is returned (sometime after 8/6.... Aaaaarrrrrghhhhhhh the inhumanity of it all) it goes toe to toe with the Redhawk. The looser in this battle of the 45 Colts (comfort and accuracy) goes on the selling block. As for .22's, I'm not a high rollin' preacher such as yourownself so I can't afford an S n' Dubya 63 :wink: The .22 will allow me to shoot more and more often! Besides, I love shooting gallery rounds in the garage (.22 Colibris) in my Romanian trainer (much, much quieter than a pellet gun) and a .22 pistola will allow me inexpensive sight picture and trigger control practice. With my longbows, I was so used to shooting a hundred or so arrows a day that NOT doing some sort of shooting on a daily basis is torture! Last weekend, my eight year old daughter was upset with me because when I was supposed to be playing water gun tag with her, I kept waisting my super soaker ammo popping flies and bees off of tree leaves and flowers :biggrin:
