    What to keep - What to sell

    So, if you have read another thread I started yesterday, a friend was wanting to trade me my iPad for his Kahr P9. Trade was made after taking the Kahr out during lunch.

    So, my wife says I should sell it and put the money towards our credit card ($1,500 balance - not much). While I have a few months before I do that, I was thinking...The Kahr is off-grid. My Glock 26 is not. If faced with a decision that you had to give up one, which would you choose?

    Her thoughts are "we don't need another gun". I can't necessarily disagree or agree. Need and want are two different things. On the other hand, it's only $1500 and this isn't going to pay it off. But, a happy wife is a happy life...

    Thoughts?

    I really like my PM9, the size is perfect for various carry methods, I've never shot a Glock so I can't really say much else. I'd give up my PM9 before my XDM 9 Compact though.

    Keep the domestic general happy, and keep the Glock.

    Sell the Kahr. They're reputation is less reliable than Glock and I personally don't care for them.
    'But, but... They're customer service is AMAZING!' Who cares.
    That being said, you seem like you want to sell the glock, so you should do what you feel comfortable doing.

    Sell 'em both, buy a Colt, and find a girlfriend. (just kidding)

    I'd say keep the guns, and sell off a bunch of other junk that you don't need. (or sell the Kahr)

    Good one guys. The only reason I'd sell the Glock is due to it being registered. Kahr = no paperwork = you're not coming to get what you don't know I have. I love my Glock, it's my second one. I have a few months to sell some stuff....

    Guns and ammo may be worth their weight in gold if the dollar keeps declining. I'd find other things to sell that would make Momma happy.

    Did you make the trade with the intention to sell the gun? Your original post seems to have a feeling that you made the trade because you wanted the gun.

    Family financial discussion is always appropriate but something about this sounds a bit manipulative to me. Don't much go for the notion that obedience is required or she won't be happy.

    I'd keep the Glock if I had to choose one. But, I'd strike a deal; To keep both, I'd either work OT or maybe get a second job for a few weeks to pay off the debt. A gas station cashier for a couple of weekends and maybe some week nights will earn you 1500 in a hurry. Or, get rid of some of the junk in your closets/basement and garage. Everybody has lots of that stuff.

    Here's something to think about; If your truly worried about "being on the grid" with your Glock, just how to you plan to get yourself "Off the grid" when you sell it? If you get rid of the Glock, it doesn't erase records. And FWIW, I think you are worried for no reason.

    I don't know enough about Kahrs, but I would not get rid of my Glock 26. I'll make my wife get rid of 1/2 her closet stuff 1st. She would not say another word after that.
