    Am I crazy to want to trade a P2000 and PPS for a 1911?

    I keep going back and forth, do I want one? Yes.....No.....Yes.....No

    Would it be stupid to trade my P2K LEM V1 W/ Night Sites, and my PPS both with less that 250 rounds a piece for a 1911?

    What would you do?

    Depends....which 1911? Nighthawk, Wilson, Les Baer....depends on the model and condition. There are some 1911's I wouldn't trade either for.

    Are those your current carry guns?

    If so I'd pass on getting rid of them both. The 1911 has a different manual of arms, IE the grip and thumb safety to learn, if you are not used to them, I would suggest that you get familiar with them before carrying the 1911 for defense.

    As posted above, it depends on the 1911. At one time I thought about trading thee guns, 2 Kimbers and a Beretta for one Nighthawk, I didn't do it and sometimes I kind of kick my self as I sold the Kimbers and Beretta anyway...but I'm happy with what I have.

    If my life depended on the guns you mentioned, there's no way I'd trade the P2000. Just on a value determination, you'd have to specify which 1911 is considered to know if it's monetarily a good move. But on function, no.

    Keep them and get the 1911.

    That's the best advice here. You'll never hear of someone letting a good gun go and not regret it, whatever the reason.

    Heck, I have guns that I hate and still keep!

    Maybe you're right. I should keep them and get the 1911. I guess I will have to use my discount with SA and get a GI in stainless.

    Get training and get a clue.

    You haven't shot the guns enough.

    I guess my Blackwater and FLETC training isn't enough. Where can I get a clue at? How much does it cost? How many times should I use something before I decide to swap it? Do I need to ask your permission father to change my mind? Maybe you should keep your insults to yourself?

    $1.50

    They are available at walmart next to the ammo, right under the deer scent.

    I bought 3 yesterday when they were 3 for $3.

    Seriously, you have a pair of great carry guns...why are you looking to dump 2 weapons for 1? It makes no sense.

    I'm right with ya. I'm thinking there's a GI or Milspec that's gonna follow me home sometime early next year.

    Gotta look for them next time I'm in Walmart.

    Don't know why I want to dump them. Maybe I want a 1911? Maybe I don't carry them but carry another gun and would prefer a 1911?

    I really don't know why I have an itch to have a 1911? I've never shot one, or a 45 cal for that reason. I think it might have to do with evertime I see Gran Tourino I want to get rid or my AR and get a Garand, and get rid of the two handguns listed above and get a 1911. I've always been particular to the saying "fear a man with one gun, because he probably knows how to use it".

    I know why you want a 1911. They look good. Time proven. Fun to shoot. Just keep the ones you have, even if it means putting off the 1911.

    I believe Stevew said it first: keep what you have and still get the 1911. I can name, even many years later, every single gun I ever let go and I also can tell you, again many years later, that I regret ever letting any of them go. And should that be your decision, YOU TOO WILL REGRET IT!

    Well the only gun I've gotten rid of was a PT92-C. One of the first compact guns. I honestly don't regret it. I'm looking at 1911 forum and they are saying that I can get a Dan Wesson at an amazing price. I wonder if Kimber offers a similar savings.
