I say getting rid of either is a terrible idea.
You never know when you'll want that gun back.
Save some money. Put the Ruger on layaway. There are ways to cut corners while saving money. Eat fast food once less per week. Smoke one less pack of cigarettes per month. Take up odd-jobs around the neighborhood ("Do you need your lawn mowed, Mrs. Smith?"). Start a lemon-aid stand.
I know those prolly aren't the best ideas. But you get my drift.
Just don't get rid of guns. I suspect you'll regret it down the road.
