    So I'm in Kentucky and thinking about selling my Sig P229R, I have a blackhawk holster, 1-15rd mag, 2-18rd mags, and hogue rubber grips. Only about 250 rounds through it.
    There's a gun show in town and I'm thinking about trying to sell it there.
    For a slightly used Sig for about $850.00, is that a decent price for all of it?

    Uh... well I paid $600 for a red box (certified pre-owned) sig p229r with 1x13rd mag. You'd get more money if you parted out the accessories like the grips, holster, and mags. $850 still seems a bit high though to me, considering you can get a NIB p229r for less than $800.

    Yeah I was afraid of that. It is steep. I'm trying to come up with some cash to get a CCW. The Sig is just too big.
    Maybe I can scrap something together elsewhere. I really like the pistol and hate the idea of selling it. So after holding it again I think I might keep it. Man I hate being broke.
    In KY to get a permit I have to take a class $65, then get the permit $60, and then buy a firearm I can carry give or take $300-$500, ammo $50, practice range $30, etc $$$$$$
    Meanwhile I am working a temp job, trying to find work, making half of what I did in Washington. Man, something's gotta give.

    What holster and belt are you using? I find that having a really good gun belt and holster help a lot when carrying big hunks of metal. I carry my p229r daily and I'm a pretty skinny dude.

    Costs more money though... a good gun belt will be $60-100 and on up and a good holster is going to be at least another $70-80 or so. :/

    You could also maybe try getting one of the cheaper pocket guns for now. Kel-tec and ruger (and others) make little .380s you can get for like $250 or somethin.

    What holster are you using? I got a buddy that has one and he uses a Supertuck and it conceals great!

    I use a Crossbreed Supertuck as well. Ares Ranger web belt usually.

    $5.00....I'll send my address!!! :D

    Seriously, it seems a little high to me as well...but there may be a regional difference here..I live in the Northwest. Parting out the package will certainly offer the best chance for a bigger profit.

    I'm going to try getting a new holster/belt and see how it works. I'm usually a warm guy so I just wear a lot of t-shirts and jeans. So getting past the outline of a gun in my t-shirt if it's a little windy makes me nervous.

    I will give it a go and see if the cops come. I do love the gun and would like to hang on to it if possible.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Sounds a little high. I bought a brand new one last year for $750.
