Also, I just did a used gun check in my area (Northern Utah) and prices are right around the $340 used range. Not bad since they can be had used for $400. I just got my SR40c brand new for $390 out the door, but my dealer is pure awesomeness. Love you, Mr. Smith! Lol
I sold some of them on, If you have a similar forum in UT then I would recommend listing it there as "For sale, or trade for Glock".

The part I left out was that Kerley's in Sunnyvale did give me a better estimated value, closer to what I sold them for. It paid off for them too because when I was there doing the transfer with the guy who bought the BAR I picked up a Savage Model 24 they had for sale, then when I sold the Remington I saw a Single Six there on consignment, which I eventually bought as well. Giving a good estimated value for free brought them some good business.

I traded a Glock for the SR9c. Glocks dont fit my hand well except for the G36. Make sure you try out the Glock model you want before you do any trading. You might wish you had not traded.

That only makes sense. Deal straight with folks, and they will return. And with most avid firearms enthusiasts, they will return again and again lol! I buy a lot of gun stuff... Firearms, ammo, holsters... Any extra penny I have goes into my hobby. I've dealt with all the locals, but I found a guy who went out on a limb to help me layaway my Match (I LOVE that pistol!) I wanted it, but it was a bad month. Anyway, he helped me out, and in the last year I have purchased six guns and have another waiting. And it's a 100 mile round trip to get there.

As for trading, I'm done with that for a while. Last month a "refreshed" the armory. Got rid of 3 I didn't like/use, took a modest hit, and picked up two that I know I am in to. And paid half on another lol! I love buying, selling, and trading them, but after I get this PT100, I have to give it a rest for a while... That's what the Missus says anyway
