Which Gun To Sell
I am starting classes again in a few weeks, and am going to be running into some budget issues. One of my handguns has to go to cover some expenses. My trouble is deciding which. So I figure I would throw it up here and get some ideas.
The two candidates are my M&P9c or my sp101.
The M&P I was using for carry. A few months ago I bought a walther PPS and have fallen in love with it. Now the M&P spends more time in the safe. I shoot it well, but the slim profile of the walther won me over.
Now for the sp101. I picked it up recently. Took it to the range, and have put a box of ammo through it. Its nice, and I am liking it so far. It is my only revolver, but I am not proficient with it yet.
This leaves me with a dilemma that I can not reach a firm answer to.
I want a revolver, but also find it nice having a high capacity handgun around the house. I already have a 9mm(walther), but do I need a new caliber?
Both sit in the safe and may be carried on occasion, but I don't see a clear winner.
Which should stay and which should be posted for sale?

While a wheel gun is nice to have, you're looking at extra expense for ammo. I'd keep the M&P. You have 2 carry guns, using the same ammo that way. JMO

If the front sight hasn't fallen off your M&P yet it's a keeper.

I would keep the SP101, ok it has different ammo but it can shoot 357 and well that is just fun... hi capacity... if you are at home use them both if needed!

I'd sell the M&P to one of your friends. : ) Just kidding, I don't have the cash.
If it were me I'd keep the M&P. There are a million Rugers out there and you could always get another one cheap if you want one later on.

A few good points here. Alternate carry with the M&P vs. double fisting pistols.

Every answer is back and forth. I was hoping there would be a clear winner.
Maybe offer both for sale and keep whichever lasts longer?

I would hate to be in your shoes in having to sell a gun to pay upcoming expenses. However based on your financial situation my sale would be based on which one would bring the highest price, plain and simple.
Get the most money you can out of either one of them and then replace it later when you get through school ect and have the finances.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

I would keep the SP101.
It's got a bit of character, whereas the M&P is just another polymer 9mm.
The revolver would preserve another dimension to your carry repertoire.

The sp101 is the only one I ever bothered to take a picture of.

Daring to be different, I'd sell the Walther.

The rule in our house has always been only one of each caliber for each of us. When my husband wanted a new .380 he had to trade his old one. If I want to get a LCR, I have to trade or sell my 442. This way we don't have as many safe guns and each serves a purpose.
Sell the M&P9c.
