    I'm wondering if I should trade or sell my smith & wesson m&p45c.
    I was thinking about purchasing a glock or springfield to replace it.
    Glock 30sf or the springfield 3.8 45, maybe, if I can find one, the new single stack xds.
    Maybe even downgrading to a 9mm cause of ammo cost.

    Idk what to do, someone help guide me in the right direction

    Glock 19, CZ P07, or Walther P99S.

    If you are interested in 9mm, consider a .40 S&W Glock with a Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel (extra $150.00 or less for barrel & magazine) that will let you shoot 9mm, but have more power when desired. I use a 9mm conversion on a Glock 23 and it truly drops in and runs like a dream.

    How about taking up reloading? Save your brass, buy a Lee Reloader for $30, a 4-die set for $40, 500 cast bullets for $45 and 500 primers, about $17. You'll need some powder $20 and a cheap dial caliper and you can have 500 rounds of practice ammo for about $170. Subtract the equipment price for the next 500 (and you'll still have plenty of powder left) and it comes in at around $64.00/500 or .13/round (figuring a few bucks for powder used, which you'll already have paid for).

    Of course you're free to trade your M&P, loose $200 on it, add $250 from your own pocket to the mix and roll the dice with another pistol in a caliber you don't want but why? I love my xyz and sold my lmnop doesn't get you where you want to be.

    You could be up and loading with 500 rounds to shoot for the price of the trade which won't come with any ammo. Heck, you could splurge for a few hundred XTPs and have carry ammo to boot. Something to consider.

    Honestly why sell or trade it? Do you not like it? I would keep it and buy another gun! Anyway, if you are going to get rid of it I'd go for the glock. If you're looking for a good carry 45 its hard to beat the glock 36 ,I've had mine for a few years and love it. Accurate, reliable, small abd light enough to carry in almost any situation. I saw someone mentioned getting a 40 cal glock which wouldn't be a bad idea because with $300 extra you can get a 357 sig barrel, 9mm barrel and mag then basically have the ability to fire 3 different rounds from one gun for under $850. If you're unfamiliar with the 357 sig Google it, its a pretty wicked SD round.

    no problems or issues. just started thinking of getting something else. maybe ill trade or sell it but im not %100 sure on it cause i know ill miss it later as time goes on.
    ive shot the glock 30 and loved it, which is why im consiering selling my m&p45c.
    also a 9mm is next on my list maybe the glock 23 just to swap barrels as i please.
