Thanks for the feed back on the pistols. I was going to buy th Ruger Mk III, but it was sold yesterday. I looked over the other choice Browning Buckmark w/target barrel and the Ruger Mk II. I went with the Ruger for its durability and the price. I get to pick it up in three days and cant wait. It is also a NRA edition, came with a nice carring case and extra clip.
