    Bye bye, Jethro ..... <heavy sigh>

    Well, I did it: I went ahead and drank the Kool-Aid.

    Jethro, my trusty S&W Sigma 9mm, which I have staunchly defended for several years now -- and I do mean defended, I honestly liked the fact that for a very low price I had 15 rounds in my hand in a gun that never once, not one time, failed to fire, failed to eject, failed to chamber a round into the battery -- has become the victim of a deal too good to pass up.

    Not sure what I'm going to name the G17 that I traded Jethro in for, I'm thinking Jed, but the deal was too good to pass up. The used one I got in the deal looks like it fired maybe 50 rounds. The LGS gave me more for Jethro than I would have asked, and he came off his tagged price on the G17 so much that there was no way I could resist this deal. Suffice to say, I got a G17 for an incredible price from a very, very reputable LGS.

    So .... I now own a Glock.

    I feel the pain. 'Hope the G17 steps up to fill Jethro's shoes.

    Glocks are the streetwalkers of guns, cheap and anyone can use them!

    I was in a similar situation, but I decided to keep the original gun and buy the second. I've only sold 3 guns and regret doing it. If you have secure storage for your guns, (and available money), don't sell any. One day Jethro will be calling you like a lost little lamb.
