I'm sure you could find someone to trade you even up for a used Glock. It's kind of like offering to trade a nice Swiss watch for a Timex.

100+! A model 28 S&W is accurate, reliable, effective, and well made. Can't really say that any of those attributes apply to a Glock, IMHO.

+357 of all the 15 or so handguns in the safe, no matter what else I grab to take to the range, I grab the Model 28 too. That damn thing is just too much fun to shoot. Dependable as a hammer as well.

My father gave me a Colt Diamondback, 6" .22 with leather holster when I was just a kid. It was my first handgun It was big, heavy, and was only a .22 (and the things that didn't matter at the time, more accurate than any handgun and more than some rifles I've shot, comfortable, beautiful bluing and wood grips).

I was on a military gun kick for a while and I really wanted a Beretta 92FS and found one, Inox with wood grips. I had the store swap the wood grips out for black plastic because it's what I wanted on the Beretta. They gave me ~$300 for the Diamondback toward the price of the Beretta. I was so happy with my new 9mm.

A few years later I started liking the idea of wheel guns and thought about that .22. I thought maybe I should buy something like it. They go for about $2,000+ in the condition it was when I got it. Now that my dad has died it's also one of those things I think back on from when he would take me out in the desert or mountains with him and we'd camp or fish or plink. I wish I had that Diamondback to teach my son and daughter with. I don't have $2000+ to buy one, but I can tell you that if I still had that Diamondback and someone offered me twice that, I wouldn't even consider it.

Now, would any of that apply to your situation, I don't know.

I have my dad's pistol. It's a Sterling Model 400. .380

Not well liked or thought of on forums, but that doesn't matter, it was his and I will keep it always.

Well, with all the 9mm ammo flying off shelves and only .40 S&W being left behind I went and bought a S&W SD.40VE. Only had a chance to cycle 5 rounds thru it when I got home but it shoots well. I'll see if I can get a photo up later.

One thing about firearms- they are timeless. A well made piece from a hundred years ago, which has been cared for, is as effective as it was then. And they become more elegant as they age and gain more history.

Gander Mtn agrees.
