I don't know that the Woodsman/Buckmark comparison is fair. If they still made the woodsman, I would say yes. the buckmark is a very good, reasonably priced pistol that I am not afraid of carrying around the woods or on the tractor. No way I would do that with a Woodsman now unless it was already really beat up. I look at the Buckmark as a working gun and the Colt as a target gun that you carry in a soft case to the range.
