Look around on the secondary market. I got my BK9 for 35 bucks shipped. It was used but in good condition. Wasn't looking for one but the price was right and I had the extra scratch at the time. I sold the sheath later for 15 bucks as I had a spare from my RD9. Good deals are around if you aren't in a hurry.
Which do I like better? I'd take either. My Ranger is a custom and the profile has been thinned so it's a bit better cutter than the Becker. Ranger probably has a better resale value should I want to get rid of it. I had a micarta RAK and an RD7 that didn't last long once I put them out there. I saw my old RD7 in a trade forum yesterday and it got snapped up again real quick.
I don't own a RD9, but I would sure pick it over the Becker. The scales on the Becker are too slippery. Also, the 5160 steel used in the Ranger knives is better for a big chopper. It is a tough spring steel, used to make car springs, and is sometimes used to make swords.
