    which one if you had too?

    I am in a tight spot and may need to sell a firearm, don't want to but on my income, I may not have a choice. A family emergency with inlaws has put us in need to travel back and forth, so I have 2 handguns and may sell one. I have made a decision but would like to ask here to see if I made the best choice. I have a G2C that I have had since December 2018 with just shy of 2000 rounds it has been flawless, so much so that I now carry it and shoot it very little since I know I can trust it. I have a Ruger Security 9 that has less than 100 rounds, it had a magazine issue but it has been cleared up. I just don't carry it as well so it stays in the safe. I have decided to keep the G2C and sell the Ruger if it comes to it. so did I decide the way you would? thanks.

    Precisely! Your choice is the same one I would make, keep the gu that you carry regularly, one that is flawless, and ha syour confidence and experience.
    the safe-queens are the firs to be declared surplus - durable, familiar utility is the last gun I'd part with. last.

    The Ruger will bring a greater return on investment and the G2 is a solid choice for self defense. When things get better and I hope it's soon for you, you can always find another Ruger or other brand.

Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    Yep..........
    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    I think you made the right choice.
    Personally, I think the G2C is a better carry gun than the Security 9,
    Plus, considering the number of rounds you've had thru them both, you'd definitely get more for the Ruger.
