Should I have my head examined?
Iím about to bust-a-move and would appreciate some opinions before I do something stupid. Been looking for something to replace my Kimber Pro CDP II for primary carrying.
Looked at and/or tried many pistols lately and have decided on the Sig P239 in .40 and eventually getting a .357 barrel for it. Shot one yesterday in .357 with a Houge grip and just knew that is the setup I'm after. My thinking is I could shoot .40 at the range to save a few bucks or go to the .357.
Found a NIB P239 .40 in a local shop for $640 (includes a Houge grip). This shop buys/trades, and I'm seriously considering approaching the guy about a trade of some sort to ease the financial pain.
I love the Kimber, but it needs some work done to it before I will be comfortable carrying it C/L. Right now she is in near perfect condition, with only a slight wear mark on the frame. If I get her worked on, the value goes down. I already have parts (Brown MSH and thumb safety), two spare springs, six mags, and almumagrips. Sparks vmax iwb holster too.
To tell you the truth, I no longer want to carry a 1911, even if I do the mods to the Kimber. What to you think would be a reasonable move?
