    All depends on what you use the money for............I sold my dearly beloved G20 but that helped me acquire the P7M8.

    I'm selling it to use towards an AR.

    I liked it well enough when I bought it. But after the P99, I just don't like the trigger - even with the lighter trigger pull on the G34.

    I don't shoot my USPc as well, but at least it has a nice trigger.

    I shot it a few times yesterday to decide, and I decided not to keep it.

    As long as it's something cool like an AR, we'll let it slide this time.

    OH!

    At first I thought it was just a generic question about your sanity.

    But since its about selling your Glock, I won't bother with a reply.

    Well, since you don't use it much and you are buying an AR I guess you are forgiven.

    Gee, thanks :P

    I could sell my HK too and get THE AR, but I don't wanna do it. So, I'll just get the AR

    Since you got many other guns i think getting rid of that glock for an ar15 was a decent choice. I'm glad you've held on to the USP.

    Getting a good AR is almost never a bad thing.
    Note the "almost."


    I am comforted by the fact that, having been infected by the dark side, like most others with that fever, you , too, shall someday return. Just don't waste too much ammo in the meantime.


    In all seriousness, let me say that I totally understand about the trigger feel of different actions types making it difficult to switch back and forth while still maintaining a high level of skill. That, in a nutshell, was why I converted to all Glocks (for centerfire auto uses) about 15 years ago. Now that I have the Glock safe-action "feel" permanently tattooed on my psyche, I have reluctantly allowed myself a few other centerfire autos of varying types; but I limit them to deep concealment or target-only or other less important/frequent uses, and I start and end each range session with a Glock -- no exceptions (gotta keep that tattoo fresh!).

    ABSOLUTELY NOT!!
    having owned 117 glocks and only one that didnt have issues beyond comprehension I believe you did the right thing!!!






























    Do I at least get a brownie point for trying?

    Well, got the deposit on it. Should have the deal finalized this weekend hopefully (it's someone 3 hours away, so he sent a deposit until he can come get it).

    I don't regret my decision. I tried the trigger again - it is too spongy for me.

    Ship...

    I thought you were going to end up with an XD45 in the collection? MUCH better trigger, and it looks really sweet next to a "shiny" new AR.

    I will, of course, dispute Jeff on the Glock trigger. It has a MUCH shorter reset and is easier to use at high speed than the XD trigger.
