    They have another Buck Mark on sale too. Rebates end tomorrow (11/26/17) short window.

    Oops sorry the Camper UFX models were $289 making them $189 after rebate, sold out. Still some like the URX I got left, though.

    Sign up for RK Guns eblast emails on sales because one may just strike your fancy and you gotta strike while the iron is hot.

    I likes me a sale. I love them rebates too.

    Now I will have to order some extra Buck Mark mags, I thought about that before I ordered it. I love my Ruger MKII Tgt Govt Model with 6 7/8" bbl, but wanted something different and more handy to shoot. I have never owned a Browning .22 pistol, but folks seem to really like theirs.

    Had one and sold it, like an idiot.

    It shot well, and it is easy to break down to clean. The only fault I could find with it is that stupid ass gold trigger.

    Yep, I see where some folks replaced them. Oh well, it's factory "Bling" they and Marlin have been using fer years and years on some guns. My Marlin model 60 has a gold trigger too.

    Hey, maybe you take it to a Gun Show and see what kinda trade in value it has toward a Browning :jester:

    Good choice. I bought the Camper version a while back (I got a screaming deal).

    Imho - the sights on the Practical are easily worth the extra .$20

    I don't need another project bolt action but that's not stopping me from thinking about buying a Midland 1903/98 hybrid

    What's need got to do with it

    Grabbed a couple extra mags (on order too)..........hate having to buy yet another gun specific mag. Seems the ARs, at least, all take the same standard ones, and that's a good thing.

    And 1911s do too.

    Good purchase; those Brownings are nice pistols.

    There's no such thing as "too many .22 guns".

    Well, sometimes if I used my haid I could find more good deals at the same time. For instance I should have ordered extra Buck Mark mags from RK too, they were on sale fer about 1/2 what I paid for them somewhere else ($12.98 ea @ RK)) but sold out now.

    Can't always catch the best deals, but any savings I get can be applied to more G&A stuff. That is a Win Win situation to me.
