    Is my gun still for sale?

    I have many Glocks. I bought two G23s (.40) mainly so my son and I could attend classes together. I have been trying to sell one of them for the longest time, but not terribly seriously. Today, one of the people I had asked if he wanted to buy it inquired if it is still for sale.

    I don't know now. One option is to sell that and buy an LCP or a down payment on an AR-15. The other option is to buy the spare parts to make it into a full fledged 9mm.

    Given the political climate, not sure which way to go right now.

    I am selling my Kimber to buy an AR.

    That is my view on the subject.

    If you were to sell, what's your asking price?

    I bought a "spare" G21 last week. I figure it's just going in the back of the safe, along with my spare P7.

    I'd say keep it. If you really like your G23, it's always good to have a second as a back-up.

    I was asking $450 but I am not sure it is for sale. I am also thinking spare parts.

    I think having a duplicate spare of your carry gun is a great idea.

    I like the idea of having a spare. I can also see your point for wanting to buy an AR. The LCP will be around for years to come and an available AR probably will not so I'd say if you have to sell something to get something different then I would get the AR.

    I'd keep the G23 if it were me.

    Tough call EMP. It's good to have an identical spare but there's a point in favor of picking up an AR too. As far as selling it for a pocket .380? That's not something I'd personally do.

    All things considered, I'd suggest buying as many mags as you can reasonably afford, both for the Glock and an AR if you end up buying one.

    Wouldn't touch a LCP with a 10' pole! Already have a RRA Tactical Entry. Stocked up on 20 and 30 rd mags and bought a 100 rd Beta mag. Now I'm going for a couple of AK's cause the ban is coming back IMO. Go for the AR. Mine is a blast to shoot and since I purchased it 3+ years ago the price has went up 400.00.
