Default Handi in 218 Bee Should I?

IF it's still there I know where a handi-rifle is for sale for $200 chambered for .218 bee. This rifle has a very heavy tapered barrel. Should I buy Or should I let it slide?

I had a topper 22 hornet rechambered to 218 BEE. The Bee will deliver several hundred fps more velocity over the hornet. It's really a great cartridge. Easy to reload for too. Mine loved IMR-4227 and the 45gn Hornady HP Bee bullet.

Is this a trick question?....<><.... :-D

(By the looks of his avatar, I think Rick who posted just before me may be a bit prejudiced in his opinion regarding the .218Bee :-D :-D :-D )

I guess I owe you fellas an explanation :cry: After my mororcycle accident money got a bit tight so I ended up selling my handi. But now that I'm back to work I've got the itch again.
