Which to get rid of?

DemonthrallDemonthrall Posts: 1 New Member
Hello, I have been CCW with a Ruger LCP and a NAA .22 mag. I recently bought a Sig P365 9mm on the premise that I would get rid of one of the two aforementioned guns. Welcome to marriage. I am torn on which one to lose.

Anyways, which one do you guys think I should get rid of? I tend to pocket carry both, and the P365 will be a mix of pocket and OWB carry.

    Why get rid of one? They don't take up much space.
    Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.

    When you buy the 9mm, you will have three necessary categories of personal armament. You still have to acquire a .22 revolver, .22 semi-auto, a .22 rifle, a center fire revolver, a shotgun,, a center fire carbine, and a center fire rifle, just to have a basic self defense and training ensemble.

    Negotiating with your spouse to fill your basic fire arms requirements should be a major part of your self defense strategy.

    Hide one & say it's gone ...... after the divorce you can bring it out again .

    Or buy only black guns, and never take out more than four or five at one time.

    Premises are made to be broken. Keep them all!

    Premise or Promise?

    If it's a premise, just hide one  of them and call it good.

    If you made a promise then get rid of the gun that fits your hand the worst (least amount of control and worst accuracy at the range). You'll have to determine that.

    Thereby, upholding  your honor and keeping your promise, good Sir Knight.

    If it were me, I wouldn't get rid of any of them -- certainly not on a premise.

    Beware of false knowledge -- it is often more dangerous than ignorance.

    Getting rid of either of those guns is kinda pointless as the resale value is negligible...
    I suggest you take your wife out for a nice dinner with the proceeds

    Is this a trick question?

    The .22 Mag NAA.  If you have to get rid of any at all.

    Get rid of the NAA by gift wrapping it and giving it to your partner/wife............Write a nice card to go with the present telling her how much she means to you and explaining that you worry about her safety when you are not with her............Then book a range day to show her how to use it.

    I have the 22lr and the 22 convertible with the belt buckle I would never part with either of them.
