    I had to search to find a nice M17... I'd keep it. You can't find guns that nice coming off the line these days. If nothing else, save it to pass down to the grandkids.

    That 17 is a keeper. Can you have too many guns?

    I have had more fun with .22s than any other cal. If it were me I'd keep it. Save for the gun you want if that is an option.

    Keep the 22! LCPs arent very expensive. Save and buy one later.

    Welcome to DC
    From Michigan!!!!!




    No Deal!!!!!!!!

    Save for an M&P9c or Model 19 Glock

    M&P you should find for just ^ of $500, Used Glocks from $375-450, and new Glocks from $475

    If you cannot save for it, at least trade the S&W for something of more value, in a better caliber/firearm
    such as mentioned, 9mm/.40 cal or the like.

    NO!!!! Keep the M17 and save to buy anothere gun. Don't trade it! I've got a Model 17 with a 8 3/8" barrel that I used for metallic silhouette shooting. I bought it new over 20 years ago. It will someday go to one of my grandkids, along with a Model 29.

    Aside from the lopsided value difference, I have an LCP and undeniably, it is a good pocket gun, (goes every where I go), but it is NOT fun to shoot. Recoil in that little boomer is significant. The 22 is fun to shoot. 380 ammo runs about $19 for practice ammo; 22s are inexpensive. Bud's lists the LCP @ $290 shipped...if you really want one, save up for it.

    How about I give you $500 for the 17 and you can go buy yourself a new LCP with a laser on it?
