To Trade... or Not to Trade? That is the question.




My CBOB will be here on Monday... I'm pretty sure of that. However, I have a line on being able to pick up another 09' DW before the end of the year but I can't un-arse anymore money right now. All I have are possible trades.

Would you guys trade off 2 Kimbers for another DW or is that a foolish thought? Your opinions please!!

Out of the following, which would you jump on... RZ-10, Heritage, PM-9, Marksman or an SS Custom?

Two CBOB's are nice. Three are even better. Make the trade.

#1. Do you want another DW?
#2. Will this trade be able to work in the 2010 year? DWs Price going up.
Better do it now.
Go Heritage.

Assuming the two Kimbers on your signature are what you're trading, I'd make the trade and have some $$ left over.

I would do that trade. I believe the polymer framed Kimbers to be absolute junk from my experiences with them.

Mine is a good shooter, I guess I got lucky on that one. Nevertheless... it's a moot point.

I'm headed off to make the deal!!!

Yeah baby!!!

I'm BAAAAACKKKK!!!!!!!!


Ok, well here I am making a mad dash to the gun shop where I stumbled across the DW's, and I'm trying to figure out which one to get. So I's goes to thinkin.

"I already have three .45's, so what about the other options?"

I get into the gun shop and start looking at prices and trying to compare what was the economical purchase in relation to the trade in value of what I have. The clerk gives me a figure, and of course I start to haggle.

What it all boiled down to was, do I want to put down what I'm getting in trade in and lay away the remainder or walk out with gun in hand? I chose gun in hand!!!

I am now the new owner of a brand new Dan Wesson Razorback RZ-10 10mm!!

Here's some pics....




I chose the RZ-10 due to the fact that since I already have Dillon 40S&W/10mm reloading dies and shellplate conversion, I can start reloading for this cannon right off the bat!!
Also, it was the least expensive of the 5 choices.

My Kimbers are gone... I'm now on my way to enlightenment!!

I'm on my way, but not there yet.

Oh, and my CBOB should be here day after tomorrow.

I will have full range reports of both guns as soon as possible.

Few things more exciting that shooting full power 10mm's I highly recommend Doubletap ammo if you're look for something hot and heavy

Good choice with the 10mm. Of what you listed, it woulda been at the top of my list then the SSC. My PM9 rocks!

Yeah, my main concern at this point is finding some unprimed brass in bulk. IIRC, I saw a few bags at my local gun shop. I'll swing by there tomorrow.

If I had not already had reloading equip. I probably would've made a different choice. I got a 20 rd. box of Corbon 155g. DPX thrown into the deal, and the sticker is $39.99.

I am NOT... going to pay those prices to shoot this gun.

It may be a week or so before I get to punch paper, but it'll be fun! I'm looking forward to it. Besides, I have plenty of ammo for my CBOB when it gets here.

congratulations on your RZ 10mm, I hope that you enjoy it and have no regrets for the trade. I'm sure that you will find it a wise move I have shot 10mm but do not own one for the reason you stated (price of ammo) but also because I just enjoy my 45cal. Enjoy your new weapon.
