    To sell, or not to sell?

    Ever since I picked up my Glock 27 a few weeks ago, my LCP has been collecting dust in my safe. It used to be my EDC, but after purchasing my 27, it has taken then LCP's place. As many of you know, the LCP is no range gun and it is not something I see myself shooting on a regular basis. To be honest, I don't really miss the gun aside from how easy it was to carry. What do you guys think? Keep the LCP or sell it? I can get $195 for it at a LGS where I purchased it for $300.

    Keep it! why lose money on it. There may be a day when you want the smaller gun to carry!

    I shot the LCP and really didn't like the action, so it wouldn't be something that I would want to keep. But, I also wouldn't want to lose 1/3 the amount paid. I would bet that you could get $275 for it at a gun show or on armslist.com. If there is something else that you think you might want more (another gun, ammo, training, etc.) then you could put that money to good use. If that's not a concern at all then you might just want to hang on to the LCP as a possible BUG.

    Keep it. Everyone needs to have more than just one handgun.

    Based upon your post, it appears that you have no further plans to shoot your LCP.

    If that is true, sell it and move on.

    Remember, if a gun functions properly never sell it.

    In our current environment unless you HAVE to sell it to survive you would be crazy to sell it. Do you have any other handguns? What happens if your Glock is disabled for some reason. 2 guns is one and one gun is none. I like my M&P 40c so much I'm going out and buying a spare today. You never know when you might loose a gun in a tragic fishing accident.

    Unless I have a need for, or an emotional attachment to, a firearm, there's no reason for me to keep it around. You can get a better price for it in a private sale.

    Your LCP would make a dandy BUG to your Glock.

    There are days when my G-23 or G-36 are just a tad to big for what i am doing and the Diamondback .380 slips in the front pants or shorts pocket in a High Noon Pocket Grabber holster.

    I like having at least one very small pistol and as others have said it makes a nice BUG.

    I'm in the same camp as blitzburgh........ Never sell a handgun that is functioning 100%. Besides, the LCP would make a great back-up gun to stick in one of your pockets.....

    I'm in this camp.

    You will one day want/need a firearm for just the sole purpose of concealment/lightweight ETC, ETC, and you will be booting yourself in the backside.

    It is only a couple hundred dollar gamble in keeping it, and if that couple hundred will not keep you from going bankrupt, KEEP IT!

    I have to agree 100% those fishing accidents seem to happen more frequently than ever! The LCP is not a fun gun to shoot, but it is functional and when nothing else can be concealed with the clothes I'm wearing, I do grab the LCP ... it always fits in my pocket.
