    Nice pair of plinkers

    I picked up this pair of 22s for 400 bucks yesterday. I'm going to pick the one I like best, sell the other, and use the proceeds for goodies. 1989 Ruger Mark II, and 1999 Browning Buckmaster. I don't know how to add a poll, but let me know which one you guys would keep? In the end, I'm going to keep the best shooting one, but I would like to see what all of you have to say.
    Ruger:0
    Browning:3

    Send em' both to me and I'll give you an educated guess,,,,,,,,REALLY.

    I had a ruger WAY back and loved it. Never shot a Browning though.
    Let us know what you chose......if sending them to me can't happen for whatever reason......and why you made your choice.

    If they shoot equally, I'd go for the Browning. We have one and it's incredibly accurate and cheap to shoot.

    (how does a Buckmaster compare to a Buckmark or are they the same thing?)

    I have a MK2 and used to have an MK1 but I have shot the Browning. I would take them both for an extensive test drive and see which one I liked the best if I were you.

    But if I were me and I am, I would keep them both...

    You are not going to like my answer. I would keep them both.

    I'd keep the Browning, but only because I like the ergonomics better.

    Shoot 'em both and pick which shoots/feels best to you.

    Nice finds BTW!
