    Well, I did something I never thought I would do. I traded my Sig P220 Sport last night. It all started last Saturday when I traded a Glock 26 for a Glock 38 with a fella from VA guntrader.

    I have been shooting 45 GAP for a couple years now and have been carrying a Glock 39 as my EDC since last spring. I love the 39 - 45ACP performance in a Baby Glock package. I have built up a GAP stable. I have an OD Glock 37, OD Glock 38, OD Glock 39, black Glock 39 and a Springfield XD45LE Tactical with another XD45LE Tactical on layaway at a local gun store. Basically, I am sold on the GAP. I picked up a Glock 26 in a trade, and already had 2 other Glock 26s. I love the baby Glocks and like having multiples of the guns I shoot often. I put the extra Glock 26 up for trade for a 38 and made the trade on Saturday. While there, I traded a bunch of 45 ACP ammo for GAP ammo with the fella and mentioned the only 45 ACP gun I had left was my P220 Sport and I didn't shoot it often (once in the last year) so the GAP ammo was of more use to me than the ACP ammo.

    Saturday night, the fella contacts me to ask what it would take to trade for my P220. He initially offered a Glock 37, Galco shoulder holster and asked how much GAP ammo it would take to make the trade. He didn't realize it was a P220 sport. I told him I never thought of selling it and it would have to be a good offer to make me give it up - even though it was a safe queen. The offer he came back with was a Glock 37 (3 mags), Glock 39 (3 mags), Galco holster and 2000 rounds of 45 GAP ammunition. That did it. I made the deal.

    So, here is what I gave up with 6 factory 8 round mags, 1 factory 7 round mag and 2 factory 10 round mags:


    And here is what I got in return plus the new Galco Miami Classic shoulder holster:



    I know the new owner will shoot the P220 Sport more than I did. But I swear, I never thought I would have let it go, but this was an offer I couldn't and didn't refuse!

    Now I am out of the 45 ACP business and while I still have several other calibers, I am focusing on 45 GAP and 9mm.

    My GAP line up now includes:

    OD 37, OD 38, OD39, 37, 38, 39x2, XD45LE Tacticalx2 (I pick the other one up next week)

    Plus I now have tons of ammo for the range and self defense (his 2000 rounds added to about 3000 rounds I had on hand). I have been buying up GAP ammo since I started shooting it, speaking of which UPS should be dropping off 300 rounds of Speer Gold Dot this afternoon.

    I'm sorry if I bored you. I just felt like sharing...

    Wow. I mean that's a trade! I'm sure it was hard to let go of the Sport. Enjoy them all and if you see a good deal on another used 26, let me know please :).

    Looks like everyone was happy with this deal. I agree with you regarding selling/trading the safe queens that don't see a whole lot of action for something you really like.

    Congrats on the excellent trade! Be sure to save that brass to have when you start setting up your reloading bench :supergrin:
