Help with dilemma...trade or keep?
I'm hoping I can get some of your opinions on this particular situation.
A few weeks ago, my wife, for my B-day, allowed me to put a Springfield XD-9 Service model on layaway. I am almost in a position to pay it off and bring in on home. I'm expecting that it will quickly become my primary carry weapon.
Currently, I mainly carry my Sig P232, mainly because my Beretta 92 is a little big for everyday, and I haven't found the right holster for my 1911.
That said, I have been contemplating trading in the Sig, mainly because I just don't like the .380 round all that much. I don't shoot the sig as often as shoot the others, and the only reason I have carried it is because of the size. Since the XD Service model is basically the same length, and only slightly wider, I don't think the transition to carrying the XD will be all that difficult.
Now that I am in a position to finalize the transaction, I am having second thoughts on trading in the SIG, simply because it was my first pistol. I have no other attachment to it besides the sentimental value. I have bought and traded many guns over the years with no problems, but now with this one I'm struggling a bit.
My question to everyone is, have you ever sold a gun, with that type of sentimental value, and not regretted it? An employee at my local gun shop is already looking forward to picking up the Sig for himself and asked me to let him know when I would be trading it, and if it wasn't for that, I would have no problem keeping it, but it would then just sit around, most likely, collecting dust since I don't shoot it much.
I don't need to trade it get the XD out, although the extra $$$ would certainly come in handy for other things, like the new IWB holster, but ....but.... but.... it was my first pistol..... ahhhhahahjfgkfghiufghrgjk!!!!!!!:aargh4::aargh4::a argh4:
Well, there ya go.... I think you can tell that I am vexed. Any thoughts might help me weigh this out once and for all.
