    Dilemma

    Ok without going into a bunch of detail, I received as a gift a $300.00 gift certificate for one of my local gun stores. My question is do I use it towards the purchase of a new Glock 26 for everyday carry or do I buy some Crimson Trace grips for my S&W 340 pd that I have been carrying lately?
    I will end up getting both, I just keep going back and forth.

    I know there are bigger problems to have but I figured where better to ask.

    For my purposes, I like lasers. I also have a G26. Get a G26 and put a laser on it.

    Two guns in the hand are better than one left in the case. Get the grips later.

    If you give me the gift certificate, I'll put the CT grips on my 340PD and that will solve your dilema.

    Glock. Better to have a BUG. You can always outfit it with bells and whistles later. Lasers won't save your life if SHTF. The Glock? Well, it's probably more likely to. :)

    +1. I'm not a fan of glocks or laser grips either one. You can never have enough ammo.

    If you're carrying the 340 more than your 19, then I would opt for the Grips. BTW: You can purchase the CT Grips with the S&W logo direct from Smith & Wesson for $279.00
