I'm not surprised he liked the Buckmark. It's a great pistol. He'll be very happy with it. Sounds like a good experience for all and you ended up with a brick of .22s. Can't beat that deal.
Don't take your Buckmark with you and shoot his golf balls out of the air!Thumbs down left thumb over right seems to be the key for me. 20 years of shooting revolvers that way just can't be undone. Our next trip is to the driving range...he used to play golf and has been looking to get back into it.
I also shot his FNH FiveseveN with 30 round "magazine clip" (lol). It shot low and the sights aren't adjustable. Had to manipulate the sight picture to get it on target. To me it seems like a solution looking for a problem.
