    I just picked this up last week. I still have not decided whether to keep it or trade it. I am not the biggest 9mm fan but this gun is pretty cool. It is easily in 95-98% condition (just a tiny scratch on the back which I could fix) and is all stainless.

    What would you do? Keep it or trade it? Sorry for the low quality pic. I had to take it with my iPhone last night since my camera is at work. :)

    Keep it. With your gun collection I would hold onto something like that.

    I love historical firearms and their replicas, so my opinion is a bit biased.

    I've thought about selling my Luger over the years but it is just so unique a design and nice shooter that I never end up selling it. Granted mine is just a restamped E German surplus pistol but its fun to shoot and play with whenever a Luger is mentioned. Like when watching Band of Brothers and all the drama made over the Luger. I'd keep it as a shooter.

    If there's room in the safe, keep it.

    What kind of quality is the Stoeger? I don't know anything about them. If they are like the old Mitchells Arms then trade.

    I would sell it as you do not have enough room in the safe and it may be down grading the overall colection. I myself would let Deadeye in Albany know what the value of it was cause he might just take it off your hands and save you the humiliation of admiting it into your collection. No really that is what I would do.....

    I already have another one. It is half full of rifles but still has room for some handguns...once I organize it. It is the one on the left. The one on the right is the one you saw earlier before I reorganized it.

    So, is your restaurant just a side business to your gun trading? Looks like you have quite the collection going.

    Pay day? What is this "pay day" of which you speak? I have not had one of those in a very long time. :)

    My dad had one of those. He hated it. Did not shoot well, frequently jammed, stiff action and did not feel well in his hands. Those issues may have been particular to that specific firearm though.

    Might need to trade it for another safe. B-)

    Having worked on a few in the gunshop I can tell you they are rather complicated and a pain in the ***. I say get a Hi-Power (which I did not notice in your safes). 9MM isn't THAT bad...:)
