    Camp 9 or not

    Hi folks,
    I came across a 2000 model year used Camp Nine at my local LGS. The gun is in excellent condition and everything functioned like it should upon inspection.
    Now, I have never had a want for one of these, but for $500 I am sorta sitting on the fence. Ilready own enough rifles that I barely shoot and I am not a collector that needs every caliber and model of a particular maker.
    So, is this rifle something that is so fun to shoot, I wouldn't want to put it down?

    Better yet, drain the entire pool!

    I'd rather have a 9mm carbine that takes Glock magazines.33 rounds and drums add to the fun.

    Honestly, that’s one Marlin I don’t care anything about. Just me....

    I have seen more than one of those where the stock has broke at the top of grip.
    Apparently it is common for these guns.
    They make recoil buffers that are supposed to help with this problem.

    9mm is a blast to shoot in these rifles. I have one and they are easy handling and easy on the shoulder.

    I have owned several Camp rifles in both 9mm and 45acp. Currently own one of each. Fun blasting at bowling pins. I see no real advantage in a hunting or personal protection situation
    ​I am one gun away from happy!!

    If you like it, get it! (quickly before someone else does!)
    Personally, for about the $ame money, I would go for the Ruger PC Carbine over that! (as a 'shooter', not as a 'collector piece')

    Honestly, I enjoy 38 specials out of my 1894 way more. I have both Camps and don't shoot them at all.
