    Too many CC handguns...which one(s) to sell?

    I think I need to thin out the herd. I have been so focused on finding and acquiring quality CC handguns that I find myself debating which one to carry almost every time I leave the house. I know: it's a good problem to have! However, my bank account could use a cash infusion, so I am turning to my band of brothers to help me decide which ones I should most likely get rid of. I will say ahead of time that I shoot all of them well. If they weren't worth me buying, I wouldn't have purchased them to start with. Capacity has never been a serious consideration for me. I figure the FBI statistics showing most shootings involve less than 4 rounds keep me in the "alive" column, and if capacity is seriously a consideration, I'd bring the AR with a few 30-round magazines and skip the handgun.

    Here are the candidates:

    1. S&W 3913: plenty of holster options, plenty of magazines. Recently replaced the G26 as my most often-carried weapon.
    2. S&W 3913 NL style: same as above
    2a. S&W 3953: same as above, but DAO, plenty of mags/holsters and high points for being safety-less
    3. S&W 37 airweight: a long-time go-to gun, have used ankle carry for years, still looks new, but not as accurate as any of my semi's
    4. S&W 13 3: barrel: heavier than most of my semi's, have 3 holsters, don't carry often, but high emotional attachment due to scarcity
    5. Glock 26: plenty of mags, holsters, and was the most frequently carried of all my handguns.
    6. Bersa BP9CC: relative new-comer, but easier/lighter than most of my semis for carry and almost disappears with just a t-shirt
    7. Bersa Thunder 9 Ultra Compact: newest addition, heavier than all of my pistols, but fits in all my GLock holsters and is a dream to shoot.
    8. KelTec P32: the only .32acp I have, but my wife carries a Beretta Tomcat in same caliber, my only true pocket gun, a back-up or for when I can't carry a "real gun".

    I am very torn, but see no reason to have so many that really serve the same purpose. Tell me what you think... I really feel like I can make a reduction here and not have any negative effect on my choices for daily carry....or my emotional/mental health!

    Don't sell the Bersa Thunder 9 Ultra Compact. The more you shoot it the more you like it. It really is a sweet shooter. I have never had a failure of any kind with mine.

    Everytime I've "thinned the herd", I've regretted it later.

    I wouldn't sell anything.

    I'd ditch a Bersa or two and never look back.

    I'll give you a hundred bucks for the lot - you can keep one, lol.

    Seriously - if you have to sell one off choose the one you use the least either carrying or shooting. Even though it might be the best gun in the bunch that means it'll sell faster & at a good price.

    ^^^^^This^^^^^

    I've learned from experience not to sell my guns. I am still mourning the loss of the ones I sold.

    I'd look at keeping "sorta" one of each type. Keep one 3913, the snub (M37) and the 6-shot .357 (M13). From the Glock-Bersa mix, pick one to keep, since you already have another compact 9, the 3913. Keep the .32 for the reason you mentioned (same as why I have one). That brings you down to 5, and you should have a good chunk of change or tradeability from the 4 you'd give up.
