.10 on he dollar is about normal for a pawn shop. For me it's hard to blame the one buying at such a small price if the seller taking the deal. I'vwe bought and sold at pawn shops for years. If you haggle a little then a better deal can be made.
But bottom line is the have to be able to buy with enough meat on the bone to sell at a profit. In my experience I've had much better luck trading with them than I would have selling outright.

That is funny!
I did not say you were good or bad. I said I could not do that. I simply treat people like I would like to be treated as much as possible and it has worked well for me in both my 30+ years in LE and now as a trainer and dealer. I guess that is why I have less money in the bank than many others of my vintage do, but I can live with that.

Back on track...I have a 642. With +P ammo it is a serious handful. I only shoot +P once in a while.

Your comment is instinctively correct. S&W pretty much says the same thing about their firearms, that although they are rated for +p ammo it can possibly increase the speed which the gun will wear. Either way, I think the Airweight is going to be my next carry gun.

Thinking of pink grips, so my wife will bond with it better. That would make it tuff to borrow though. Lol

I carry a Glock 23 on my leg as my CC, this would sure be lighter.

Going from 18 rounds of firepower I can hit with, to 5 rounds I have a greater chance of missing with, leaves me stand off ish.

I would rather my wife train with a Glock or P4X as well. She seems to have mental issues working the slide on anything larger than a .22. She is a farm girl, so I don't think the slide is a physical issue. It seems to be more a willingness to train.

I am uncomfortable handing any gun to someone not willing to discipline themselves to proper use of the firearm.

I understand completely. I have some of the same concerns. I shoot my 6906 and 5903 VERY well and even though I do shoot the 642 well it is a BIG step down in protection!!!
