    I wouldn't sell either one.

    What are you going to do next month when the rent is due? Sell the other one? Then the third month comes around... get my drift?

    Having gone through a similar time because of a divorce, I kept the most practical pistol I had, a G19. It's never fun having to sell guns you like but you do what you have to do. Like zacii says though, you have to think about next month and so on though. If you've already made up your mind, list it soon to give yourself time for a private sale.

    I love my carry piece the glock23 ,but I know I can get another g23 at any time ,but not a S&W 1006 . I was looking for this gun for a long time , is hard to find someone to sell you a S&W 1006

    If you already have another job lined up - any chance your landlord will cut you a break?

    Any other source for funds?

    I think you've just answered your own question.

    Glocks are readily available, the 1006 isn't. If you have to sell one, let the Glock go.

    Good luck, I hope things work out very well for you.

    What Coltman 77 said. There's no way I would part with my 1006, you can buy Glocks by the truck load.

    You could pawn the Glock. It would take months for the landlord to evict you so just tell them the truth. Pay what you can and make up the difference as soon as possible.

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

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

    Well, you ask. I'd keep the Smith.

    The Glock is a solid pistol, but IMO, they're so reliable and easy to come by, that getting a newer pistol every couple years is not really a concern. You'll most likely get hosed on the sale for the Smith, so why compound an already bad situation. I'm sorry you're having a tough time and hope it's short term. Just a thought, You might want to get to know the local pawn broker and just barrow the minimum to minimize the payback. Good luck!

    Do you have any good pawn shops around? If so, get a plus loan out for the Glock and pick it up after a few installment payments when you get your money situation back flowing. Just an idea.

    I'm a huge GLOCK fan, but as others have said let the GLOCK go if you must it will be much easier to replace. Good luck getting through this.
