    I have a Smith&Wesson 659

    A guy wants to swap me a Taurus Millenium Pro 745

    Neither guns are collector status and I think close to equal value. I already own two 45's the SAXD 45 ACP Bitone with a Crimson Trace that is my EDC and a Ruger P90. I have shot and handled a Millenium 9mm and didnt care alot for the trigger. But the Smith is pretty heavy weight wise so I would like opinions on the 2 side by side

    thanx in advance

    Trading a Smith for a Taurus is right up there with trading your Cadillac for a Volkswagen. Maybe even trading it for a Yugo.

    So far everybody has been kind to a Taurus. Would suggest doing some research on how much metal frame Smith autos are brining. My experience with a .45 Taurus was terrible. Really like my 5906 and the other Smith's.

    You have a pound of Gold and I will trade you this bar of Silver for it....Keep the S&W. It's really a no brainer.

    I have a 6906, dealers have talked me out of trading it for one of their weapons..dealers!

    You have a fine weapon, I'm pleased to hear your keeping it.
