Default Glock 20 v.s. Dan Wesson Model 15

I have a Dan Wesson model 15 .357 Magnum revolver with a 8" barrel on layaway + a Glock 29 10MM.

I am thinking about having the gun shop owner take the revolver out of layaway and get me a Glock 20 instead.

What are your thoughts?

What would Y'all do?

A Dan Wesson is a great .357 (assuming it's a Monson MA gun); a Glock is a Glock...

Love the GLOCK 20... The Dan Wesson is very nice, but the barrel length is too long.

Why not keep the DW and save for the Glock?

The Glock 20 was/is to be the bigger brother of a Glock 29 10MM.

You can use the Dan Wesson to hunt deer with in Ohio. Not sure about the G20's barrel length. Personally, I would get the DW, and then save for another firearms if I wanted it badly enough.

I would but I've never liked the Dan Wessons. If it was an older S&W with a more reasonable barrel length I would have to think about it some more. YMMV!

I would, and have, picked the DW over any Glock. A Glock isn't even one of the semiautos on my lost of possible buys. No plastic for me. Steel!!
