    Sell or keep? M&P40

    I own a M&P40 Full Size and a Glock 26 Gen 4.

    I use my Glock 26 Gen 4 day in and day out. Because of that I find less of a reason to need the M&P40. I like to simplify things and not have to purchase all different types of calibers. I wouldn't CC the M&P because of the size. I won't hunt with it. I don't like the grip to much because my hands sweat easily (for that the new rough grip on the Glock Gen4 works great for me).

    Do I sell the firearm (M&P) or keep it for a reason unknown.

    I honestly believe that the value of any firearm diminishes too much after being "used" to ever get rid of it. In my experience, I have always been given a quote with at least (but normally more) a third of the purchase price lost to sell it. The M&P is a great gun, keep it and cut your losses from selling it.

    Before you sell it take a minute and think of why you bought it. The M&P is a rock solid platform but if you cant come to like it might want to trade it for something that might work a little better for you.

    So long as the money you get from the sale finances another firearm, sell away. Otherwise, trade. Don't sell a gun outright unless finances demand it. Trust me, you will regret it.....

    Trade it for a full size of compact Gen 4 Glock you can use as a night stand gun or something

    Do you have another gun or is this your only option besides the Glock for defense? If you have others, sell/trade it and get something you will be happy with. M&Ps are a dime a dozen so you can always get another down the road if you miss it.

    Unless you need the money hang onto it until you find another gun you want, then sell it outright. As a trade in a dealer might give you half of what it is worth.

    Yes, the .40 can be easily converted to either of those two calibers with a barrel and magazine change.

    I guarantee you I won't be selling my M&P40/357Sig anytime soon since it is my Everyday Carry weapon. I'm a glock fan also. To sell or not to sell is really personal preference since everybody's situation is different.

    Sell it. Your pretty clear that you don't like it or want to buy 2 calibers of ammo. I felt the same way after buying my Glock 26 and sold my M&P and haven't regretted it at all.

    Sell it and get a M&P9 or a M&P9 compact... like others have said. Selling a firearm and then not replacing it is a guilty night of sleep, trust me.

    Also have you though about having the grip stippled? it is easy and cheap to do.

    The M&P Platform is a rock solid line-up I would never trade sell a M&P or a Glock, Unless as stated above, you are going to replace it.

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

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