I'm not saying don't buy the Compact 92. I'm saying to buy it and not trade off another.

What the heck is wrong with you? I have three guns and I'm feeling deprived. I want more.

Other than that nothing new
Dodger, good to hear from you.

The 92 is a great platform and 9 mm is a whole lot cheaper to practice with than .45 ACP.

From a SHTF perspective, I advocate having owning guns in all available calibers because you simply don't know what will be available so in my book 1 45 ACP and 1 9 mm is better than 2 45's.
While budget considerations ARE real for all of us, our sport is not always about "even money". It's about acquiring your wants/needs is a manner that tugs on the heart strings and spurs YOUR passion for the sport.

Good Luck on the trade.

Tack

Tack, as well said as could be. I have missed the wisdom of the people on this forum. See you in the world series Vincent!!

DB you old friend, you really need to take a look at the Browning Hi Power if you want a 9mm.

Nuff said.
