Default Downsize Question

I'm thinking of downsizing my handgun collection and can't decide on which to possibly get rid of...which 3 should I keep and why?

Glock 19 9mm
HK USP 45c
S&W .40 VTAC
Nighthawk Custom .45
Sig P226 Combat 9mm
Sig P938 9mm

All of them have a purpose, but I have another venture that I want to fund without using cash from the bank.

Disclaimer THIS IS JUST MY OPINION ONLY!!
With the economy looking up (finally) more people have a little bit more discretionary income... so selling is a good decision now.... and listing them here on the FTF in the classifieds is a good option.
First.. choose which 9mm is your favorite (shoot often, feels right, conceals easy etc.) and sell the other two. Second... if money is the goal that Nighthawk is (again IMO) the most valuable and the one that will hold and rise in price... so decide if it's more important to have money in hand or a good investment. Third... there is definitely more of a niche' market (cult following) for the HK than the S&W so that will probably sell quicker and for more. Good luck.

I'd keep the two Sigs and the H&K. My reasoning is that the Sigs give you a good CC weapon and another platform that uses the same ammo, and the H&K is a nice 5" barrelled .45 acp. for fun and thumping. Both manufacturers have a great quality rep too. My$.02.

You have too many Glocks, so that would be first.
Then the H&K (the .45 is covered by the Nighthawk, and there are more 'smiths available who can work on 1911s.)
Then the P938 (kind of hard to get parts for in SHTF, while the P226 is all over.)

But this is only my opinion!

I agree completely.

I would keep the H&K, Nighthawk, and SIG P938, so you get the two most popular calibers and all three are good guns leaving you with a diverse enough choice for the majority of situations.
