Ok I have decided to add a new pistol to my arsenal. I have been looking for a .22 pistol and though I was gonna go with a Walther P22. My brother has one and it is a great shooter. Then my brother in law recently bought a Sig 1911-22 and is trying to Convince me to do the same. Says it is a whole lot of fun to shoot. I love my full size Springfield Armory 1911A1, but it is just too expensive to shoot very often these days. So I decide to go by Gander Mountain today and take a look at the Sig 1911-22. When I arrived they had a couple of the Sig models, but what immediately caught my eye was the Browning 1911-22. I love the scaled down size and the feel is amazing. So I decided that Monday at lunch I am going to go back and get this one.

My question is do I break down and buy this gun, or possibly trade in/sell one of my other pistols to make this purchase a little cheaper. I own two Sig P238's but only shoot the P238HD. I was thinking about selling/trading the P238 that I have not ever even fired. I am planning on carrying the P238Hd with my CHL when my license comes in, so I want to keep one .380. Do I really need the second .380, or should I just get rid of it?

Please help me decide!

Sounds like an easy decision to me. No need for two nearly identical guns. Shooting a 380 at the range is a lot more expensive than a .22lr.
The .22 will give you lots of cheap range practice and fun.

Well I sold one of my Sig p238's and here is its replacement.

Browning 1911-22 Compact. It is a hell of a lot of fun to shoot!

Nice replacement there Gunner. I was going to throw in my .02 for the Colt/Umarex rail gun. The love of my 22cal. life. Good choice that you made though, hope it shoots well and most of all is fun.
