    Honestly, I have no idea where you are today, nor if that's anywhere I'd want to be.

    ... I called him up and offered a 2-for-1 trade. My S&W Bodyguard .380 & S&W model 637 J-frame .38 special for his Glock 26. He took the offer and we'll do the swap soon...
    Probably so!

    Why not sell the Smiths & buy a Glock outright? If your two Smiths are in decent shape, you should easily be able to get $300-$350 for each of them. Then you could go buy yourself the G26 for $500 and come out money ahead. Plus, you'd have a new, rather than used, G26. JMO

    Dealer costs: Bodyguard380 $300, 637 $310, Glock $440. If you're happy with it, go ahead. But he wins.

    Not making decisions like you are.But if you like being where you are at, having to not be able to buy things you desire because you have bills... then by all means, throw money away. But hey if it works for you, and where you are is all good, why did you have to post on a public forum full of strangers to justify your existence and decisions?

    It's my opinion that if u are happy than its all good! Ur a grown ass man with the right to make ur own decisions,so people that don't even know u criticizing u is their problem! And as for anyone thinkin they are better off than u...if they wer doin that well the loss of around $200 to be happy wouldn't bother them at all! In my experience people that have a ton of money don't mind " immature/amateur" spending of money if it makes them happy.

    Congratulations on ur new gun!!!

    Actually hammer, the only people who have a lot of money who don't care about throwing it away are professional athletes and music stars. The rest I know care where the money goes and that is how they are able to maintain their lifestyles. It is not about being better than anyone else. It is the simple fact that he asked if his trade which netted the other person 2-300 dollars was a crazy trade.... then when he got the response he didn't like, he took offense to that.

    Same thing goes for the guys who come on here post that they are trying to choose between two weapons when they have already decided, then get all defensive when they don't get the justification they need. If you are on here asking it is because you have confidence issues and are in need of justifications for your actions.... otherwise you wouldn't be asking.

    That is called character. If you can't handle the answer, don't ask the question.

    I said that they don't care to spend or lose money if it makes them happy! I personally don't have a lot money being I'm still In school and only 22. But my dad and many family members are beyond what u would call well off. And none of them are concerned with money how they spend money when it comes to theirs or a loved ones happiness! I'm not saying they run around throwing away money for shits and giggles but if somethin makes them happy, they do it.

    I will agree on ur point about people getting a lil to defensive or offended on them not getting the answers they want to hear.

    I would not have traded.
    But I am not you.
    You should have put a stipulation, that if your wife was not fond of the G26, you could undo the deal.

    I just feel that if he can't afford to spend 400-500 bucks due to bills, then he should be a little more careful with his dealings. Throwing money away is never good. He could have sold both pistols for 300-350 each, bought a used 26 for 4-5 hundred then had an extra 1-200 to spend on his bills. But he doesn't want to be where I am at so I suppose he is content with downgrading and losing money unnecessarily on tangible goods. I cannot see how having a certain weapon but being saddled with bills can make anyone happy..... but to each his own. Just my advice to him.... but he don't wanna be there.

    azchevy,

    It's not what you say, but how you say it. Hey, if condescension and wild assumptions make you feel more like a man have at it. The internet is full of keyboard warriors.

    I am sorry you didn't like what I had to say. I feel it is good advice.... but of course it is not what you wanted to hear. I'd rather be blunt than beat around the bush and be coy in my responses. I made no assumptions, you stated you had bills, you stated you can't afford to outright buy something... not me. But carry on. Good luck to you.

    No insult intended here, but that was a bad trade on your part RonCo.

    I'd have no problem trading something, or two somethings for something I want. As a matter of fact, I'm working on trading my wife for a Spike's Tactical AR...
