Not an expert, but here we go...
Nickel finish is electroplated on, it's shiney and pretty, but scratches more easily and can crack/flake/etc. Probably won't be an issue unless it spends some time bouncing around in the truck or pistol whipping thick skulled individuals Very Happy It is more rust and corrosion resistant than blue.

Blue is usually cheaper and looks more traditional.

Stainless is NOT rust proof, but it rusts and corrodes more slowly and usually gives the longest life. Not too expensive and the most durable.

Unless this gun has a special purpose, like bouncing around behind your seat, I say pick the one you like the looks of the best and keep it clean, you won't have any problems!

LOL, yeah I know what you mean! I havn't shot that gun but I bet it's a smoooooth, its a hefty gun and the ported barrel should really cut down on recoil. Are you planning on chasing whitetails with it?

anywayz. and it will mainly be my trap checking tool.
but i would love to take a deer with it. we have tons of doe deer so its sure doable
