I'm debating on trading my M&P .40 for a compact of the same caliber. I originally wanted a compact. But I opted to get the full size because when I had the option to buy one, all they had was the full size. I like the full size, but I find myself looking at the compact from time to time. Plus I tried to conceal carry it the other day and didn't like how it felt.

I'm just looking for people's opinions and/or pros and cons. And maybe some persuasion to do so. Also maybe if it would be worth it, or if I would have to fork out money from others personal experience in trading guns.

Thank you for your input.

Why trade if you don't have to?
1. The full size has some advantages for some things like the compact has its advantages.
2. One can never have too many firearms.

My suggestion is to get the compact and keep the full size. Controls are similiar, chances are good that the compact will accept the full size mags (if needed).

Well I have this thing where I don't one multiple guns of one brand. I want to get a gun from each manufacturer before I do, and I have agreement with my wife that I will only buy a gun if she gives me the go ahead. So right now my option is to trade or wait till I can get a different compact. Which may be a year or so before I can...

Trading off you're liable to take a hit on the gun. Might be better off selling it outright. If you can afford to keep it and still buy the compact, do that. Full-size are more comfortable for range time.

Yeah that was the thing that worried me about it. I had read a lot of different topics about trading, and they all said they took a hit when they did. Otherwise I probably would have done it already. Thanks
