Yeah, cash seems to be scarce right now. May just have to use this as an exercise in patience. The right offer will come along Very Happy The whole Glock thing right now is ease of function and reliabilty / durability, in my world view anyway. The revolvers will be trade bait, the steel guns, 1911, 92fs will probably have their usefulness in another application. So in the end it's Glocks and the M&P9 (which may have it's own end of life issues before the Glocks). All this being said, as I'm looking ahead, as it all unfolds Wink

Or you could get a Ruger SR9 spend ~$100 less, get more capacity, better ergonomics and seriously better trigger than either the Glock or M&P..... Wink

or you could wait and find a nice Glock.

There is a reason 75% of the people at the IDPA Championships shoot Glocks...... Wink

Granted I love my 1911's, you really can't beat a Glock

I've owned a couple already, but they weren't the right models for me. G30 and a G23. The G23, I kind of regret trading in, had about $200 into that gun.Although, I ended up with a Colt CCO out of that deal from JoJo's. I'm sure that the G23 and G30 are long gone. That G23 was punishing in that small frame Shocked
