Got A Dilemma!

So I've been paying this guy I know some money for a Beretta NEO for awhile, went to get it today and he didn't have one. This is not the problem because he wasn't holding a certain gun for me. Here's the dilemma......do I wait for another Beretta to come in or pay a little more for a Ruger 22/45 MarkIII Target that he has? What would ya'll do?

Is the Ruger gonna be better in the long run? I'am gonna be shooting falling plates matches with this gun. Got another question for ya.........I'am going to attempt to put a NY1 spring and 3.5# connector in my Glock 19 this weekend. It seem pretty simple, but do you have any advice?

Ruger, definitely

Nice firearm. Feels great with a nice weight and size. Plus it won't break the bank.

The wife likes the Beretta more then the Ruger. Talked to the guy and found out he should have one in early March! Guess I can wait a couple more weeks!

pistol for quite a while now. Blued alloy, bull barrel, angled grip frame. No telling how many rounds the kids, friends and I have put through that thing over the years. One of the best plinking pistols I've ever owned.

I wanna say $350

not real sure I would have to call him. $350 could be what he had the Browning for, I can't remember.
