    Need advice

    A friend of mine has the following dilemma: A relative wants to trade SIG P226 and 3 mags for his Springfield XD. Good trade or bad?
    He needs to know ASAP 'cause he has to give the answer this weekend.

    Take the 226 - with three mags that is quite a good hunk of inventory!

    Oh hang on - I'm getting twisted panties here. Your SIG for his XD - keep the SIG.

    I guess I posted it wrong: My buddy has the XD and the relative has the SIG. He asked me if the trade was good but, since I have no idea about either gun, I wanted to check with you guys first.

    However it actually is - for me, keep/get the SIG. Not knocking the XD but the SIG wins on value at least IMO.

    May the winner be SIG'd

    Thanks everybody. He has been informed and passes along his gratitude.
