Default TO trade or NOT to trade

Hello everyone, I am hoping for some of ya'lls opinions. I'm not asking this to get bashed so please be courteous in replying.

I am tight on money, I have worked very hard for the little I have so with that said I have to watch what I spend and limited.

I have a Glock 23 gen 3 that a friend of mine wants to trade for a brand new RCBS reloading set up with everything I need including components for my .223/ 5.56 reloading needs.

Should I trade my hand gun for the reloading set-up? What would you do?

Thank you for your time,

Is the reloading equipment going to put you in a better position then the hand gun?

Kinda depends on how much .223 you shoot and how much you think you need the Glock.
Reloading equipment can be bought any time, handguns (assuming you're from CA) might be hard to come by soon considering the political environment there.

Do you have another handgun you like? I wouldn't trade away my only pistol for reloading gear.

I will be able to reload my own ammo for my AR and cut cost of buying ammo and if we have another ammo/gun "panic" I wont be stuck without ammo or paying ridiculous prices for it, that's kinda where my thoughts on it are

If I were you I would keep the Glock. Everybody needs a handgun.

Start saving to buy a reloading setup.

It's your only handgun? Forget about it.

Keep your Glock. I know money is tight right now, but that is always potentially subject to change. You can always worry about reloading setups later. Save up a little at a time until you make your goal. Odds are good that you have 2 years and change to save up and get what you need before the next big ammo scare.

You can buy a press, dies and components to build 1,000 rounds of .223 for $300.

Used reloading gear has ZERO trade or resale value! You are being taken for a ride big time.

How much did you pay for that Glock, and how long will you have to save to replace it?

If you keep the Glock and buy a cheaper press than the RCBS you can also reload your 9mm ammo.

I say having cheap ammo for two guns trumps cheap ammo for one gun.

Keep the Glock, especially if it's a early gen III without the MIM extractor,pre M** serial prefix.. Glock tried new style ejectors to fix the extraction issues. No that's not a typo.

Which press, scale, dies, etc. are these. Single stage? Do you have other handguns?

Value wise it could be a good deal, but honestly you would probably be better off just buying a lee setup or perusing garage sales to find a cheap setup. It can be done for around $100 on a good day. Even Amazon has everything you would need for cheaper than a Glock.

Lee classic turret, dies, scale, funnel, and tray for about $155-$175.

You can buy used reloading equipment far cheaper than you can buy a Glock 23.
