Had a friend of mine initiate a trade last night that concluded today. He is fairly new to concealed carry and had bought a Beretta M9 (yeah I know). Yesterday he out of the blue asked me if I'd trade him my Taurus 709 Slim and the four magazines I have for it (roughly 2k round count) for his Beretta M9 and four magazines for it (two 15 rd. two 17 rd., appx. round count less than 3 boxes) trade guns and I give him $250.00. I thought about it over night, and wanted to give him time to think about it as well, as I said he is a friend. I called him this morning and said OK if he still wanted to trade, he did. I now own an almost new, it does look new, no blemishes at all Beretta M9. I doubt I will miss the Taurus, while it never once malfunctioned I have a G26 and G36 and honestly didn't need it. I can't say I needed a Beretta M9 either, but after I thought about it I wanted one.
Hope to get in some quality time with it this week. It may become the bump in the night gun.
