    FWIW I hated my 96, couldn't shoot it accurately for anything. Felt awkward in my hand and didn't like the safety location. Only gun I've ever sold

    I wouldn't, and I don't think you would either. That's why you're asking the question right?

    I dunno though about Beretta is going to have a higher resale prob yrs down the road. Plus I already own the same gun in 9mm. Plus I got/getting most replaced with glocks

    I wouldn't, but I never was real huge into Berrettas. If you think you can make some money off the deal, then minus whale though. Keep trading up and eventually ditch it for something that you really want.

    Inox beretta's fetch pretty good money. Usually 92 will get more than 96's.

    if i were you i would definitely do the trade. based on how much it is worth alone.

    you can probably go sell it on berettaforum for more than the XD is worth.

    Beretta is a great gun. I love mine. However if I was to pick up another 92, I would actually go with the Taurus model, as it puts the safety in the same location as the .84f

    That's one of the relatively few good things I've heard said about Taurus: that they put the Beretta 92/96-type's safety in the right place, where an autopistol's safety should be.
