    Took my Sig226 to the range to check it with the new sights, shoots great
    and works for me better than my Walther.

    My plan is to sell the Walther and use the income to help finance another Sig
    (229 .40sw this time) to use as a carry piece. I originally bought the Walther
    to carry since it is insanely light but the grip doesn't work for me and I an
    quickly becoming a Sig sack-rider.

    If not interested...what's a good/reasonable price to ask?

    Excellent condition, 4 mags, less than 2000rounds through it.

    Never sell a gun to finance another gun.

    what about selling a gun that I just can't learn to shoot well and will
    just sit in the cabinet?

    It's just a rule I live by. Keep it till you've got the cash to buy the other outright, then decide whether you want to sell it. Might be by then you've learned to shoot it and want to keep it.

    I know where you're coming from. Realistically I could buy the Sig229 pretty
    much anytime I wanted.

    I've worked pretty hard trying to come to grips with the Walther and it's just
    not for me.....sort of like Glocks.

    so what does WMD crew say would be a fair price to ask? Coworker is interested
    in it, but if she keeps delaying it'll go to whoever wants to pay something
    reasonable for it.....

    .

    Maybe in a duty holster... but not IWB or concealed in any fashion.
    Not saying its impossible, but quite uncomfortable.
