Would you sell one of your Glocks to buy a SW 19-3?

Just wondering what you all would do. With the hyper inflated prices that people are paying during the panic of '13, I could probably get a good price.
The Smith 19-3 is in top condition and I have first dibs on this revolver and another Smith 36.
So, what would you do?

Would you sell a mini-14 to fund the purchases?

Maybe yes or no. I know since the 19-3 is a K-frame,some of them can not handle hot loads over 158 grain before the forcing cone might crack. And, the barrel replacement are hard to get. Call S&W and tell them the serial number and go from there.

Yes, I would.

Considering I paid $247.95 for my beloved 19-4, in 1979, to get a 19-3 in very good to great condition, I'd trade/sell my G30SF in a heartbeat!
(My G30SF is the lesser of all of my evils. I can still replace it, anytime!)

Here is my beloved 19-4 (Bangor-Punta S&W.)

Nope, I wouldn't sell a carry gun to buy a safe queen.
Nope, I wouldn't sell a hi-cap to buy a sixgun.
Nope, I won't cave in to the gun bans without a fight.

I'd buy a S&W if I wanted one, and I did, but if I had to sell a Glock, that means I couldn't afford it.

Of course, it all depends on how many guns you have, and how many you can afford to keep.

Everytime I sold a firearm to buy another I always wound up regretting it in the long haul.

Wouldn't think twice if the Smith was is in 98% condition. Glocks are a dime a dozen.

Presuming the panic dies down shortly the price for another Glock will drop but my guess is that K frame prices are going to continue to go up or at least hold steady. If I had an extra Glock I would seriously consider selling it to get a Model 19.
I never talked to anyone who had to fire their gun who said "I wished I had the smaller gun and fewer rounds with me" Just because you find a hundred people who agree with you on the internet does not mean you're right.

I have a Model 13-3, and it is no safe queen. Woods gun, nightstand gun, trainer, and my favorite (hand) gun to shoot. I got it for $300 four years ago in very good condition.

I would not sell my only semi-auto (Glock, M&P, Xd, 1911, or what have you) but if I found myself with a redundant or rarely used semi-auto, I would do it in a heartbeat.

Most everyone who has a .357 K-frame loves them. My advice is to do your level best to buy it.
There are basically two kinds of people in this world. Those that believe in the Moon Landing and those that don't.

I generally don't sell or trade guns, but a classic Smith appeals to me much more than a Glock.

Depends on what you will do with the K Frame. If you want it to shoot magnums then no as the forcing cone on K Frames is weak at the bottom. I carried a Model 13 in the past which is the same gun but with fixed sights. The L Frame (586/686) is a better gun for longevity.

The ONLY time I'd sell a Glock I own would be for a 2 1/2 M19 Combat Magnum IF the M19 had a pinned in barrel, recessed chambers, and was in very good condition.

See I'm a fool for snub K frame magnums and I have a spare Glock I most surly would trade for one! But it would take the one above to get me to trade (or sell.)

Never would I sell my Glock...I have plenty of space in my safe for other weapons.

However if i did, I would promptly fall into deep remorse and guilt and go out and buy another Glock to replace the one I sold.

So, yeah, I am hopeless.

Hell no not right now. No gun gets sold or traded that is a good weapon just to satisfy impulse. I have never traded or sold a perfectly good gun to buy another one and felt good about it after the fact---never.

Nope. I buy with a purpose in mind and sweet as it is - I'm not sure what I'd DO with it.

Shoot. I'd sell ALL my Glocks to buy a Model 19.

Of course, I don't own a Glock....but if I did, I would.
