Keep the smith

Keep the smith. You are not getting much more gun for an extra 250. You might not even like the glock feel. The smith is always quality. Even a straight up trade with no cash would be questionable.....

i swear. . .

. . . by my 6906. whether i put blazer bras or Winchester, horniday or whatever i can find (yes i even shot wolf through it) i cant get the gun to jam more than once every 100 shots or more. and it is almost always an empty brass hanging up that does it. the double stack, 12 + 1 mag is more than enough! (although the XDm in 9mm has 19+1 and is very tempting). its a little thick to use as a CCW but for home defense i trust my girlfriend to handle it 100% and my 10yr old son can empty a clip flat footed with no problems. stick with the Smith. . . .or better yet. . . sell it to me!!

I ditched my sw40ve and upgraded to a glock 23. never though twice about it

Glock is better

But I agree with demo sort of. The extra 250 isn't worth it if you already like the gun, but a straight up trade between the two, there is no question that the Glock is the way to go.
