    To trade or not to trade?

    I know this guy that is wanting to trade me a S&W 642 Airweight for my Taurus Mil Pro PT145, I really like the 145 but I would like the 642 also. I don't have a wheel gun right now, and have never carried one. He said he would trade even, I have never seen the gun but he said it has had less than 50 rounds down the barrel. I don't even know if it Stainless or Blued, but I think most are the Stainless alloy? I have a Glock 30 that I carry, but I also carry the 145 alot and I have a new 1911 on layaway that I will carry some. So should I keep the 145 or trade and have a 642 in my small collection to carry.
    Give some help. or

    Well, you should know better than to ask me...especially if you're already carrying a Glock on a regular basis. I believe a Glock is all you need, therefore your other hobbies could go either way. You want the S&W? Change is good. I say go for the S&W and be happy with something new. You still have the 1911 on layaway, and that will be something new for you soon as well. I say go for it!

    I'd do the trade in a New York minute! I'm not a big Taurus fan and that Smith is a great little carry gun that can go anywhere with you.
