Default Your opinion matters

I have a Ruger SR9C & a Hi Point C9. Perhaps this is another crazy phase but I'm really interested in getting a Ruger New Vaquero .45 LC stainless with 4-5/8" barrel. I might be crazy considering it for ccw but I've carried my G.I. behind my belt & in my BOB that goes with me on my bike. I'd also like to try these Cowboy .22 Conversion, Shooting Supplies, Brand Not Specified at Sportsman's Guide out for dirt cheap sass practice. My SR9C is Cali-legal & has two 10 round mags. My digit has never agreed with Glock triggers. The Hi Point had some warranty work done to it & I have an extra mag but I still don't trust it. I'm considering trading them for the Vaquero. So what's your opinion?

I'd trade the Hi-Point and pony up the cash for the difference.

I'd abandon the Hi point and keep the Rugers, both of them .

I've made many trade-offs in quality before, but generally,

I don't buy a gun I don't intend to keep.

It's worth the extra moolah, IMO, not to be saddled with something

you're not entirely satisfied with, and enjoy shooting.

Of course, I'm telling you what I do, not what to do...

i had a friend, carried a .45 Colt SAA small of back in belt. He was comfortable with it. But he did trade it off for a 1911 to put there and was more comfortable.

Sell it that is a good offer for a used one, I would keep the Ruger so I can't post a vote....no option for dump the junk and keep the good.
