Well... the deal is done, but I'd like to get some experienced gun enthusiast's opinions on my decision.
I've become a Glockophile. After acquiring a G23 a couple of years ago I witnessed the simplicity, reliability, and durability that is "Glock Perfection".
I've owed a diverse mix of other handguns of various calibers, and shot just about everything under the sun at least once. And, I have recently decided to work toward building an all Glock collection of handguns. I have also decided to draw the line at 9mm being the smallest caliber carried for my personal defense.
My brother-in-law has a Glock 26 subcompact 9mm. I'm not currently in a position to purchase any new guns, but I have a few that I don't particularly need/want. I figured a trade was the only way that I'd be acquiring any new guns until I get a few bills paid off towards the end of this year.
Now, the brother-in-law is understandably quite fond of his G26, so I knew I'd have to propose a sweet deal to to even pique his interest. 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.
Would you ever consider making a gun trade where you're losing on $$$ value, but getting another gun that you would rather own?
