Default i dont know what to do

So I'm selling my Taurus pt1911 and along with what I'm getting for it I can either get Sig p226 (one gun) or used beretta 96 and and brand new fn .45 I have a full size Sig p250 but have wanted a 229 or 226 bit every time I get the money for one it always makes more sense to by more than one last time I had the money I bought the pt1911 and the glock 20. What do you guys think. Criticize or comments welcome.

Sounds like you've already proven to yourself that "two" less expensive gun's don't really equal the "one" more expensive gun your REALLY want to own.

You know what to do...

Get the 226. You can always buy another gun down the road. This way, you'll have what you've been wanting.

I'd get the Berretta and the FN. How often do you think he's going to want to shoot the 250 if he has a 226? I like the fact I can choose between SIG, Beretta, or Glock.
VIVA la difference!

I guess it just really all boils down to how bad you want the 226. If you're willing to get the other two and miss out getting the Sig again at the cost of getting two guns instead of one then go that route. Either way, post the pr0n when you've made your decision!

Sounds like they're asking way to much for the 226 to me. Unless it's one of the uber-special editions, a 226 isn't that expensive. I recently bought a very nice used stainless slide P229 in .40 that came with the .357 Sig barrel, 3 mags, a holster and ammo for $550. Bud's has the 226R in 9mm for $699 in stock...

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
