Default Glock 17 for a LC9?

Talked with my local dealer today about trading my Glock 17 for a Ruger LC9 or a Nano. I've had the Glock almost exactly 1 year love everything about the gun but it's size. I need to CC about 2 months out of the year and found the Glock hard to hide under cloths so am looking for something smaller but still in 9mm. He said based on what I told him it would be a even trade. Any comments?? I usually don't get rid of guns, just add but in this case don't see the need for 2 autoloaders.

Both seems to be a solid pistol but there really are not any bad pistols out there. CW9 kahr, M&P shield Glock 26 and use one of your extra 17 mags for range trips. Your trade, there will be folks that prefer each and every pistol in your size needs and price.

I would also recommend a Glock 26. The Lc9 almost seems like you are trading down.

If you're dealing with a dealer he ain't exactly going to trade dollar for dollar-
He's there to make a buck

A used Glock 17 for a new Ruger LC9 sounds about right. I love my LC9 for EDC but it is not the most fun range gun out there. So if you can swing it I'd say keep the Glock if you can and pick up the LC9 to go with it.

marc29th, that's what I thought. I don't do any range time... my range is off my deck. I put a box through every once in a while to keep in practice. honestly, my 17 is the first hand gun I have ever been any good with. Wouldn't mind keeping it, but just don't see that I have a use for it. Maybe I should take my single six in and see what he can do for me and keep the Glock. Never could hit anything with the single six. I'm so confused.

If you just put a box of rounds though it every once in awhile just one my do it for you. The LC9 is double action only and a long trigger pull, some people don't care for it. I have a friend of mine who just can get used to it he pulls the trigger about 1/2 way back and expects the gun to fire. I got used to it just find as did others I shoot with. If there is a range near by I say try one out if you can as it'll be different trigger than the Glock.
