    Hi Guize,
    I have four handguns and want to sell one of them. What do you suggest?

    .22 Browning Buckmark Stainless URX. Almost new. With scope.
    9mm Walther P99c. For carry. Shoots well, one year old.
    9mm CZ 97b stainless. Worked up for competition, which I guess I won't do, very accurate.
    .45 Sig P220. Target Trigger, 1985. Smooth as butter and a great shooter.

    Which one should I sell? I can't decide.

    Logic, hopefully..

    ...

    The one you use least, or need, for whatever you own your guns for.

    Or, the one that is least likely to do the job, of whatever, with the least amount of shots fired.

    Or the one that cost the MOST to use, and is putting a crimp in your pocket book.

    Or the one that has given you the most grief, jams, need of fixing, etc.

    Or the one that holds the least amount of gleam in your eyes.

    If you have to, dump the Walther. The remaining 3 are classics.

    If you have to sell any more, I suggest you sell a kidney...

    CZ97 or CZ75? If you have a 97 in 9mm, hang on to it - it's the only one ever made! :) If it's a CZ75 in 9mm, still hang on, excellent pistol. If you reload, sell the 22. If you don't reload, sell the 45, cheaper to shoot the others, and 9mm will certainly do the job with decent ammo.

    Of the options you provide, I would sell the Walther because I'm just not a fan of the 99c ;)

    If you must, here is another vote to dump the Walther; as the SIG P220 can do
    anything the Walther can do, and do it better~! ;)

    The .45 ACP P220 may cost you more too shoot; but the cost will be
    made up in the accuracy of the weapon. :D:D

    Keep the Browning for sure

    Keep the Sig too as these are both accurate, great handling weapons. Both will be great for targets, plinking etc. The Sig is top shelf service/defense gun in a great caliber.

    So Walther or CZ?

    I would say either 9 would be expendable if they were mine, but I would lean towards keeping a comp gun cuz you already invested time and material that you won't be able to recover at the sale.

    So, sell the Walther.

    Hope this helps

    Well the Walther and the CZ are both the same caliber... So I guess which ever one of those two which could be more readily replaced at a future date (Walther), or which one is still box stock and therefore has broader appeal on the open market (Walther). I would not want to be without a .22, or a .45, for that matter

    If you don't NEED it to carry, I'd say to dump the Walther. If you look at what you can get out of each gun now vs replacement costs later, the Walther looks like it would be the easiest and cheapest to replace at a later time. CZs are becoming much more popular and as such, value is rising higher in on them every day. And the Sig, well Sigs holds their value real well. But, used Walther P99c are much less plentiful right now (making them in higher demand) but, as time goes by, more and more will make it to the used market. As more hit the used market, competition to fill demand should drive the prices on them down. Personally, I believe that you should be able to get more out of it right now than it would cost you to replace it later.

    It's a CZ75 9mm. I appreciate all the replies. The concencus seems to be to sell the Walther, but then I'd have no carry gun. I don't carry often but I can't see myself carrying the sig, it's very big. Lots of food for thought here guys.

    The problem, and the reason I posted, is that they are all really nice guns. Clean, good looking, no FTFs with any of them, accurate.

    I don't really need the money...if I did the kidney idea sounds good.

    BTW, I have a whole reloading setup, 3K of brass for 9 and 45, yada, yada, so they aren'e expensive to shoot. Only problem is I haven't shot any of them in the past 6 months...I've been racing RC sailboats of all things.

    Part of the equation might be "which would be easiet to sell"?

    I'll take the Sig.

    Okay, question answered! ;)

    Jmho...

    I would not sell my carry pistol (until I had a new one bought, tested and trusted).

    I would not sell a .22 if you shoot it. It is the most economical caliber to shoot.

    If I were set up to reload .45 acp, I'd keep that one as well.

    At this point, we have it narrowed down a bit, don't we?... :)

    orionengr has kinda got me thinking his way. Keep the carry gun for SD, keep the .22 for plink and range fun, keep the .45 for HD.

    That leaves the tricked out CZ. Hmmm, I've got $700 into it. Still wondering how much I'd get for a Kidney. ;)

    If you're comfortable carrying the Sig or the CZ or will be buying another carry gun, I would sell the Walther. If not, you should keep the Walther as it is the gun you carry.

    If you don't sell the Walther, and really need to sell one of them, I would sell the CZ. I'm really like the CZ but I just think the Sig in .45 is a better choice and everyone should have a .22 due to the price of .22 ammo.

    For every reason stated 9mm Walther should be the one to go. It is a duplicate platform which you have another for the CZ.
