Buckmark Lite vs the other BM models
I guess this is another "which Buckmark" should I buy posting. I want to buy my 12 year old son a .22 pistol and we have narrowed it down to the Browning Buckmark without hesitation.
Which Buckmark is another story. We saw a "Practical URX" and my son really liked it. I most like the URX grips.
When then saw a Buckmark Lite and he really fell in love with that. I think more because of its looks than anything else.
One thing is for sure, he really likes the URX grips and so do I (he's a righty, I'm a lefty).
He did say he liked the lightness of the Lite but I'm not sure that is a good thing for him to be learning on. He is an average sized 12 year old.
We both really liked the fiber optic front sites but I guess I could have them put on any model we get. In fact, I was thinking I would want dots on the rear site no matter what.
I don't understand the differences between the "Standard", "Practical", "Camper", "Plus", and so on.
This would be a range/plinking gun for him. I want him to learn to use the open sights now but would also like the option to add some fun targeting sights down the road sometime.
He's been shooting my Springfield XDM 9mm so I don't think there will be any issue with weight.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
