Default To sell or not to sell?

So I have an offer from someone to wanting purchase my xdm9 4.5 inch barrel OD, 4 mags, and a TLR-1 light for $850. Should I sell or ignore the offer because of the potential magazine ban? Part of me really wants to sell because there is money to be made but it is my only non 1911 I own lol. Decisions, decisions.....

That's pretty good offer.
If it were me, I'd sell it and set about finding a nice XDm in .45 with the cash. YMMV.

I'd sell, and use the money to buy a 9MM SIG 226.

I'd sell it. When I got a good offer on my Kimber TLE 1911, which was my only 1911, I jumped on it. I can always get another one of those (not Kimber) down the road. With the cash from it, I got the Sig P938 for carry and I love it. It's kinda like this. When you buy a stock, you can't fall in love with it. When it's time to sell because the value is extremely high and profits are there for the taking, you take them. Same principle with guns. They are to an extent, an investment. And when the market is right, and potential profits are high, you must allow the capitalist in you to come out and make some more coin to buy more and better weapons. My rule is, if I sell a gun, then that money is reinvested in another.
