I normally carry the 1911 but I never shoot the it any more because of 45 ammo prices. I love the look and feel of the s&w but I wouldn't use it as a carry. I'm just looking for any advice on which to consider giving up. Would one hold more value over time? I bought the colt brand new and the s&w is about 70 years old. Any advice is helpful. Let's hear your input
You wish to trade off one of your classics for what is essentially an appliance?
I guarantee you will regret trading either one.
Do something else.

Save sum money or put one on layaway---
Just my 2 bits
+1. Especially a plastic Ruger.
It's like trading an Italian Espresso maker for a $12 Wal-Mart coffee pot.
This transaction has regret written all over it.

Hey 86!

If it were me I'd keep them both. They each have their own values which surpasses the Ruger you're considering. ( I have separation anxiety issues). I'd look for a different way to finance the Ruger, or maybe even look to something else for a cheaper price in a .357 (what ever that $$ might be.)

Become steel or get cut.

I have a Kel Tec P-3AT. When I first got the Kel Tec .380 It was my pocket carry. Now I am used to carrying a gun in my pocket I carry a bigger gun. I guess the mini pocket pistol is a phase we all go through.
