I have been thinking about one of these for a while and finally handled one today. Nice, fit the hand well and had truly excellent sights. The grips were a bit thinner then my 84F but all it all it really held well. I can see the issue with racking the slide. You sort of have to pinch it ahead of the trigger guard to do it, but that is no big deal to me. I sold off my Ruger MK 1 Bull barrel, and now I am sort of missing a nice semi-auto 22 for plinking at the range. I don't want another Ruger, the browning did not fit well, Had a 41, and I don't cotton to plastic guns, so the neos et. al. are out. Thus my interest in the 87 target. It looks like a great gun for just punching paper at the range. So what is the good and the bad of the gun? If you have one, have you shot it much and what do you think of it? Any recommendations other then more mags?
