I bought this gun about a month ago and planned on doing a nice review then. I just didn't get around to it. But anyway here goes a quick review. I absolutely LOVE this gun. It is very accurate. Very easy to shoot. Feels absolutely wonderful in the hand. I have a Walther P22 that I like to plink with, however this Buckmark has quickly taken its place as my prefered plinker. The reason being, you can actually hit what you want with it. It is the most accurate pistol I own. You can hit pop cans at 50 yards consistently. It is cheap to shoot. I have probably run 1000 rounds through it so far. It has had a few failure to fire (I figure thats the cheap ammo) and 1 or 2 stove pipes, but other than that is has been flawless. It functions way better than my Walther. Anyway, I gotta run, but here are a few pictures.

Can't get a very good picture on my Blackberry. Especially when I am in a hurry. Sorry but better than nothing....

I've been up to the gun range a few times with Paul and been able to shoot his Buckmark. It feels good in the hand and is very accurate. Great gun.

I just bought the Walther P22 a couple of weeks ago. I took it shooting again just this past week with my father-in-law. He was shooting the Buckmark. I'm afraid I need one of those now. :wink: It out shot the Walther hands down. I still love the Walther and it serves its purpose (light, compact, and a blast to shoot). But the buckmark was very accurate. I really like the fiber optic front sight they have on them. Congrats!

The Buckmark makes the P22 feel like nothing more than a toy. I actually like having them both and still enjoy the Walther. My 8 yearold shoots the P22 nonstop and just likes putting lead in the air, and I can shoot the Buckmark and actually hit where I want. I have been shooting the .22's a ton lately. With ammo prices like they are, I never feel quilty when shooting .22

I have a Browning Buckmark myself. I have had it for about 8 years or so. I also have a Walther P22. By far I will have to go with The Buckmark being the best .22 I have shot, next to my Browning .22 rifle. The Walther isn't nearly as accurate. The Browning is quite amazing in my opinion. I won lunch one day shooting at the Holladay Gun Club hitting a little piece of plastic off the 50 yard line. Gotta love it. I would have already sold the Walter, but my g/f likes it too much. :( Kudos on the high quality pistol PW! :crown:

I have been taking a pistol marksmanship class through the U, and I really love shooting with the Buckmark. At 25 yards using a 6 o'clock hold, it is really good. Good pickup!! Now it is on my list of guns to eventually get :fudd:

A failure to eject is called a stove pipe, when you look down and see the spent casing caught in the action looking like a stove pipe sticking up. Nice pistol PW, isn't it a great feeling to take a nice gun out and hit everything you shoot it at. :thumbup:

Just for clarification, the "stovepipe" indicates that the casing opening is up. In any case, if the casing gets stuck in the action, it's called a FTE (failure to extract/eject).

Here's a pic, and yes, its a BLOCK :lol2:

For a failure to fire (you pull the trigger and nothing happens), you have to look at the firearm. To do this in a situation, you side-step (get out of the line of fire) whilst tilting up your weapon to look at the breach. In a FTE, you would SLAM-RACK&FLIP. This means slam the mag plate up to verify it's locked in, and then simultaneously rack and flip (tilt sideways) the weapon away from you (thumb side up) to help eject the casing. You then can re-aim and engage targets if necessary.

With a double feed, you need to do the same as above, but drop the mag (to the ground), rack, rack, rack, insert new mag and rack the slide, then re-aim and engage if necessary.

The problem with TAP-RACK-BANG is that instructors were finding that their students (and LEOs out in the real world), were shooting after clearing their jammed weapons - even if their wasn't a threat anymore. The BANG had been ingrained into their mind, so they pulled the trigger again after clearing the jam.

Since you are moving, and looking away from the target to clear your weapon, you need to re-evaluate if the threat is still there - hence I like SLAM-RACK&FLIP.
