    If your Kimber is reliable and accurate, I would ask to test fire the other two before entertaining a trade.

    Yep, run a couple magazines through each. You could be getting a Kahr that was never reliable and a G26 with some home brew mods that went awry.

    Humm.
    Kimber for a Kahr and Glock.
    Caddie for a Yugo and an Escort.

    Hey, just kidding. If you want to get rid of a Kimber, just make sure you get your money's worth and are happy with it.

    I know the owner and trust him. Have shot the Kahr. They are both good guns. Glock is almost new. But yes I agree. They have both been checked out. Thats a great idea. Thanks

    If the Kimber suits you and it is proven, then no I would not trade. If the Kimber does not do what you need, and the other two do, then yes I would.

    If you are truly happy with your Kimber in all aspects no. If you want the others do like the rest of use do and save your dough and go get them later. Keep your Kimber. BTW I have a G26 and it's my EDC, also have a Kimber .45acp and won't part with it. It's takes a long time to get them all! LOL. Never will happen for me! Good luck with whatever you do..

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    If I had the Kimber and didn't have any issues with it (it fit my hand well, performed well, etc.) then I wouldn't do the trade.

    I don't necessarily like Kahrs or Glocks, but yea, based on my experience with Kimbers, I definately would make the trade.

    If there were no issues with either of the other two I would be doing a 2 for 1 swap.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    If all the firearms in the trade are in good working order, with no perceivable issues, I'd trade

    This statement drives me crazy on so many levels...not just the obvious math malfunction.

    2=1 and 1=0, therefore 2=0 by this logic.

    If the Kimber is reliable and you like it, I say keep it. Otherwise trade.

    I personally would not trade. Trading a 45 for a .40 and a 9mm? Do you have any other guns in those calibers? Your choice here.
