    I'm contemplating selling off my .40 pistols, and focusing on more .45's. All I carry are .45's, and the .40's have really become safe queens.

    I have always lived by the motto, "don't sell guns, just buy guns", but I don't ever take them out anymore.

    :confused:

    I'm kind of like you in that I really hate selling guns, but to be honest, sometimes you just have to thin the heard. The good thing about selling your old ones is that you get to buy new ones!;)

    I kind of hate selling guns myself but if all they have done for the previous year is sit in the safe, and I have no desire to shoot them they go bye bye for something that I would rather have. Once you gather a certain number of firearms it starts becoming a potential huge financial loss for fire or theft. Of course that is subjective and depends on financial status.

    Well, that was easy, sold the Sig Sauer P226 without even trying.

    :D

    I have an HK USPf in 40 and had a Sig P226, but a buddy bought it the other day.

    .40 seems to be a sinking ship to some degree. Most people are opting for either .45 or 9mm these days.
