Speedy, I plan to go mid morning Sunday to Stonewall. I may have a Hammerili Trailside and the GSG 1911 to use for the day.

Trailside pic from Internet:

Speedy, correct, one person as a "guest" $7 dollar flat fee, not "per hour" if you go with me.

My last trip to Stonewall indoor range in northeast Ohio,

This is my third time out with Buckmark, and I learned to adjust the sights to how I shoot. Here is the result at 35 feet,

Here is the pistol: ( it is NOT the Micro version, just a wierd camera angle)

How does the Hammerli shoot? Better than the Browning? I've handled a Hammereli, but never fired one.

I have shot the trailside before smokes the buckmark. Or any other .22lr pistol I have ever fired, smooth like butter. But ouch are they pricey!!

I dig .22 pistols. My next one will probably be a S&W 41, but I like the Hammerli too.

The Hammerli is accurate and the slide just feels solid and butter smooth. The trigger is almost "Glock-like", very crisp. This was my favorite until I got the Buckmark. I like the Buckmark better for the grips and the sights, compared to the Hammereli.

If I can get the Buckmark trigger to feel less "gritty", I will be mega happy.

Hammerili is nice, but a pricey. I think the Buckmark is a great all around value for the results you see from the target pic.

I have not fired the GSG 1911 yet, since it is not mine, but i should be able to borrow it for a range trip .22 LR comparison to the the other 2 pistols.

I have 5 .22s pistols (at the moment) of differernt styles.

I must have gotten a good one, because my 22S is just silly accurate. It has a fantastic and very broken in factory trigger. Still want the 41 though. I plan to shoot this weekend, but prolly Saturday.

We could add the Eaa to the mix and have a 4 way shoot out. The Eaa could be the low end gun with the rest going up from there. And see if the big dollar guns shoot better. I agree with you on the buckmark for the price I love mine. I shoot very well with my budget camper model.

As I am just starting to really learn this shooting hobby, for me, the order of importance to the "feel" of a pistol is:

1. The grips - does it fit in my hand?

2. the sights - can I line up the pistol and hit what I am aiming for?

3. trigger - does it feel smooth, or have a long pull before it fires the round?

Of course, this is where a rating on a pistol will vary by shooter.

You can upgrade a buck mark also, they make aftermarket triggers. It all depends on your budget and the results you are looking for. My camper for the money shoots as good as I can with irons.

.22's are the great cost cutting, time killing fun guns, I have at least 6 handguns. I'd like to try out one of those EAA revolvers myself some time. Also should've came up with the funds to buy the Taurus that a member here had, hindsights 20/20.

You have a place to shoot? I would bring the Eaa down to shoot. Tpoppa might still be willing to sell the tracker .22 he had for sale?

I'm between ranges right now, I'm a little on the fence about the range I've been a member of for years and haven't renewed yet. I've been kicking around the idea of trying to join the one at Coshocton.

If I lives closer, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

Do, its a good place to join!

There are other memebers from Columbus that make the drive.
