    I would deal only if I wanted a caliber swap.

    I suggest you keep the friend's offer for last resort. If you need money, deal with the bank. Avoid if at all possible using a "Pay day loan" site. They will suck your wallet dry for months to come if not all the way to bankruptcy to boot. Ask your lawyer to vet the fine print!!!

    There is no bank in the free world that will loan someone $200. That's what pawn shops are for. :banghead:

    I have a P11 and it is an OK pistol, I don't plan on getting rid of it.

    Having said that, If I had the Stoeger Cougar with 6 mags and 600 rounds of ammo I would not make that trade.

    I'd try to find some other way to come up with the $200 and hang onto the gun.

    But if your back is to the wall and you have to make the deal I believe you are going to regret it very soon.

    Good luck whichever way you go.

    I'd spend Saturday and Sunday picking up aluminum cans and keep my Cougar.

    in my mind the 400 rounds of ammo at todays prices, plus the number of mags you have over his, means he needs to pony up more cash. that's only provided your comfortable with the caliber and pistol swap.

    i'd find another way to come up with the cash. best of luck with whatever you've decided.

    I would keep your pistol, mags and 100 rounds of ammo, sell the other 500 rounds as that will bring in more than $200.

    You don't know anyone well enough that they'll loan you $200? Try making some friends.

    the more you borrow the less interest there is. i have insurance but needed gas money to go back and forth. $300 will be enough and $30 a month will be easy so i'm happy.
