What would you do??

So, I'm feeling a bit depressed. Life has dealt some tough blows this past week. One of my character flaws is that when I'm depressed I like to get something new to make me feel a little better.

Anyway, I have a beautiful Glock 19 with night sights and six mags and a few other extras that I was offered a box stock G30S with night sights for. He also wants me to throw in 200 rounds of ammo with the trade.

I feel like I would be giving up a lot for the trade. Would you guys do it???

If you were to walk into the store tomorrow to buy a G30 or a G19, do you think the LGS would say, "If you don't want the G30 and prefer the G19, we'll throw in 200 rounds of ammo, four extra mags and a holster, for free?" He!! no. Essentially, they'd be the same price. Whoever made you that offer is the typical Jackwad who buys a Glock, shoots five boxes of ammo, then turns around and tries to sell it for $50 more than what he paid. Give me a break...

If you just have to have something new keep your 19 and just buy a 30S and have both.

First of all, I'm sorry to hear of your misfortunes. I think it's hard for many people to smile these days...

Food for thought... Making the trade will provide the foundation for your next bout of depression once the weight of the mistake sets in.

Hang in there. Don't make that trade. But if you absolutely have to have the 30, only trade one gun-for-one gun (like someone else said earlier), or don't trade at all.

Maybe a mag or two his way but other than that it seems too heavy in his favor.

No.

Keep your 19, and save a little bit each week to get that G30S...or a G31, or perhaps a G20. Those will really put a smile on your face the first time you shoot one of them

Absolutely, without a doubt.

Get more proficient with your G19, that will make anyone happier. Keep the G19 and embrace your inner Glock.

If I had a 19 I would trade it for a 30 in a heartbeat! But not for that much of a loss.
