I tried to trade a LC9 but I would only get $75 for a good working gun. That made no sense to me, so I still have a good LC9. I did get three shotguns thru a promo deal Chinese 982's if I recall, and I wanted to trade while they were new in the box, I still had three better shotguns at home. I did spend a little cash, but got a new G-20.
My wife had bought a new S&W SD9VE when we were down south by a gun store and after six range sessions she wanted to sell that "POS", I did not ever hear that language from her before and I was shocked. I drove directly our LGS and she traded for a Glock G-17 after trying a 19. No external safety for her. I tried to get her to keep the SD9 and just buy the Glock, nothing doing, now they have a Apex trigger that may have cleaned that up some.
