    Let's say you make the trade. A few months from now you will look back on the trade and only be able to think of 1 word....Regret.

    FWIW, I really, really like the XD40. Mine shoots like a dream and fits my hand perfectly. On the other hand, the GP100 is a gun for life. I agree with the above post. If it were me, I would keep the GP100 and scare up the cash for the XD40.

    Best!

    As others have said, I would not trade my GP100. Mine is one of my EDC's. If you really want the other gun, sell something else or save the money for it.

    To each his own, but I would keep the GP. IMO it's one of the highest quality, beefiest tanks of a revolver that you can buy. It may be different if I had neither of them and had to choose which one to buy. (depending on what I was wanting it for) But if I already had the GP I would just keep it and buy the other.

    it may not be a real concern, but I'd bet the Ruger will still be a reliable shooter 50 years from now (most likely much more), but the poly XD may not. Personally I won't trade any quality steel for polymer.

    Then again if the Ruger just don't fit your hand, and/or you just can't shoot it right, it may need to find a new home.

    I might trade, but probably would not. I've owned XDs and like them, but not well enough to keep them around.

    As others have mentioned, the XD "gear" is next to useless. Would MUCH rather have a 3rd magazine!!

    Around here, the GP fetches $50 to $100 more than an XD

    Thanks for the responses guys, there will be no trade, and now I'm thinking of taking the GP off the market.

    Keep the Ruger for sure. It is a great gun. I personally would shoot a revolver over an auto any day. I own a GP100 and for target shooting .38 spec. is the way to go and .357 mmag for HP. SA pistols are great guns to but if you are not familiar with them go to your local range and see if they have one you can shoot. I made the mistake of trading guns once, If you don't know what the gun has been through it may be a bad trade for either party involved. My trade was BAD and i had to do major repairs even though it looked good.

    I wouldn't trade a GP100 for anything out there. It's made to last a lifetime and then some.

    I have neither but I've shot both. For carry and defense I'd go with the GP. Would love to own one.
    Just my preference.

    I have two GP100s, a 4" and a 3" and would never trade or sell either of them. I'd be wary of someone eager to trade off a semi-automatic pistol. It might be a jamo-matic.

    Keep your GP, they are one of the best revolvers on the market, definitely the strongest !
    I conceal carry my GP with no problem in a speed scabbard OWB holster. It actually conceals better than my Glock 21 and Xd 45 because it's slimmer.
    If you don't have intentions of geting in a shootout with a gang the revolver is plenty enough ! You can carry a couple of speedloaders too !
    I certainly do not feel undergunned with my GP ! The 357 Magnum is a 97% one shot stopper !
