    Oh geez, now everyone has switched over haha.. The AK would probably have the best RESALE if I can get a G22 for $350, I can wait till income tax and grab one for cheap... hopefully before everyone else! haha I don't think the AK is going anywhere soon though to be honest.


    Another problem I have... I WANT EVERY THING to put on the AK while I only want an Inforce APL for the Glock and a good OC and CC holster

    Glock is a great pistol but they are everywhere and always will be availabe.

    A Norinco/Polytech won't always be there. Get it.

    In a few months you'll have money for the pistol.

    I mentioned the LEO trades at Summit because I have purchased more than 1 from Mark and done business with him for a few years now.

    Have a look at what he stocks - he is not your typical gun flipper and the guns I have purchased are 95% finish and 100% reliable - some mods but no repairs to date.

    He also sells Leo trade in mags at great prices and has a great relationship with Sig.

    Tour the site. I like it a lot and it is never the same twice!!

    yeah, you didn't like the grip on the Ruger you likely wont like the Glock...depends I guess but I think the M&P has a nicer shaped grip and feels a little better. Make sure to go to the nearest gun store and get a side by side

    sounds like your leaning pistol

    All very good input. Oli, I am leaning Pistol simply because I don't NEED an AK but I SHOULD HAVE a carry pistol. But at the Same time I am leaning AK because... well damn... ITS A DEAL! haha

    I really didn't like the Ruger grip that much at all.. I held a 45acp Glock last night and it was like holding an AR-15 magazine, not a pistol grip. Maybe the 40cal grip will be smaller??? I already know the M&P grip fits really well but magazines are a little scarce, I guess some more digging would be beneficial.

    Mingaa,

    Thanks for that info, buddy! I haven't done any police trade ins before and I don't really know anyone around me that has either. I know Police that have traded in, but that that's about it :lol:
    Anything above 85% finish would be fine with me. I expect some holster wear, maybe scratches in the polymer around the grip or trigger guard. Also some wear on the slide where it contacts the frame. So long there isn't excessive wear and damage I would be all for it.

    But I must mention again........ Unfired. 3 Mags. AK. It is also already 922(r) compliant.
    WHY MUST LIFE BE SO HARD!!! :)

    While I voted for the Norinco earlier (and my position remains the same), I will say that you'll have to decide what makes you happy.

    As hard as it is for me to say that sometimes.

    Ak.

    Cough

    ak

    eat light lunches and save the coins, and a handgun will be right around the corner.

    You don't have to have a $600 handgun. Shop around at pawn shops and the likes and haggle a little and you can have a carry pistol for almost half of what you can get the AK for.

    I regularly see used glocks for around $400-$425 around here, and the last thing to catch my eye was a near mint Taurus 92 for $350.

    Well I stopped by the Gander Mountain today after...... drum roll..... CLOSING ON MY HOUSE!!!! :D
    And I molested the shit out of a Glock 22 and I can't... the G3 and G4 both are STILL like holding an AR15 magazine in my hand... Now the M&P on the other hand fit 100% better in my hand. The G23 did fit just as well as the M&P but that isn't a police trade in. Pistol wise, going the Police Trade In route would be the M&P.

    As for the AK... I have been thinking about it all day. I think it is the winner. I just gotta gather up the cash and go grab the rifle haha... My Wife is on board with my understanding and agrees there will still be a pistol hanging around while the AK if passed up may not be there again.

    Did I mention.. I bought a house today? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :lol: ;)

    Congrats on the house and I don't think you will regret getting the AK.
