    I voted no, BUT,

    you could have filled in a few blanks to help in the decision.
    Do you own any semi-autos already?
    How many revolvers do you already have?
    Would this be for CC?

    Personally, I'd keep it and work up to the Sig, unless you have a lot of handguns already and all things being equal.JMHO

    Do NOT part with he Ruger, you'll be very sorry later.
    Get the Sig by other means, extra job for the wife, sell a child (), something, but wait until you can afford it.

    I'd trade in a hearbeat, the Sig is worth more $$$ and a much better choice for self defense.

    I've regretted getting rid of many firearms. It always seems like a good idea when you're hot for something new. Especially a Sig 226 which is a beautiful handgun. I would try to save up for it instead of dumping the Ruger.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Depending of how much you have to pay, if the SIG is in very good shape then I should do it right way.

    as much as I love Sig, I say keep the 101. Everyone should have at least one good quality revolver, and unless you were one of a tiny number of unfortunates, you have a real keeper with the 101. That said, it would be a toss up in my opinion if you were already adequately stocked with other handguns.

    Tell us why you believe it would be a good trade.

    If you want it then go for it. Sounds like a good deal. You can always spring for another Ruger at some future point in time.
    Try to shoot the SIG first if possible.

    As other's have said, too little info, however, you probably already know that you almost never get a good value for your gun when trading. Especially with gun shops. In fact, most gun shops make out like a bandit on trades. For that reason alone I'd say hang on to it. Most people (like me :)) trade because it's easier or it's faster or some combination of the two. Both are excellent guns although very different. I only trade when I feel like I'm getting at least an okay deal and when I'm absolutely sure that I don't care for the weapon I'm trading off.

    Think twice and then think again.

    I strongly disagree... A .357mag round vs. 9mm???? I would stick with the Ruger... a Good wheel gun is well, just that.... Save up and get the Sig later....

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

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

    Get the Sig now...buy another Ruger later...you seem like an auto guy by your inventory.

    Might just be me but I'd rather have the SIG!
