    Here is the situation. I bought a used P250 9mm about a month ago to use for personal defense while hiking in southern AZ (all my other guns are back in TX right now). At the time of the purchase the gun shop said that they would give me full exchange value towards the same gun P250 in .40 once they got one in, but to go ahead and get the P250 in 9mm and use it for now.

    Well I stopped by the gun shop today and they said they had a new P250 in .40 in the back for me if I still wanted to trade it out.

    Now I have to make the decision???? What do I do????

    Here are the other variables:

    I also currently have:
    Glock 21 - .45
    Glock 36 - .45
    HK USPc - .45
    Glock 19 – 9mm
    .357 conversion for the said P250 (this kit will work with either gun in question)
    Sig P226 Elite Dark - 357sig (on order)

    So as you can see I currently have .45s, .357s, and 9mm, so if I go with the P250 in .40 I’ll have to add another type of ammo to the stash. Or I can stick w/ the P250 in 9mm. I will most likely keep the P250 set up with the .357 conversion kit, but I think it would be nice to be able to switch back to 9mm and have the ammo on hand if needed.

    Or do I want the .40?????

    I also maybe trying to get rid of the USPc and/or Glock 36 in the future. But the Glock 21 is staying put, so that still doesn’t help me out any on ammo………

    If there going to trade them even get the P250 in 40sw (good pistol) and in time get the 9mm and 357sig exchange kits. All I own is 40sw and 45acp and will add a 9mm to cast soon. The caliber gods will not strike you down for adding a 40sw the mix.

    Do you think that is likely that having a 40sw will make a real life difference -other than costing you money- versus a 9mm? I don't, and would rather spend my money on practice instruction and more practice.

    This would be my opinion even if this was your only gun, but with all the 45's you have it seems like a no brainer to me.

    I'd get the 40, but I'm partial to 40's. Nothing wrong with the 9 either. I have 22's, 25's, 380's, 9's, 40's 45's and a .357. Ammo is ammo and other than the 380, which is still ridiculous, the rest is pretty much similarly priced given the difference in caliber.

    I would say just hang on to the 9, and if you really want to add a 40 to the fold just get a 40 conversion kit for the 250. After all, isn't that one of the wonderful things about the 250? It allows you to convert it into a 9mm/357sig/40S&W, Fullsize/Compact/Subcompact, with a Wide/Standard/Slim grip. It's the new "AR" of handguns.

    I'd stick with the 9mm but I just don't care for .40 S&W.
