Well this is probably a first on this forum but I dumped my C model. Just didn't like it. It was reliable and all. But I really prefer the way the F model fits me. I traded it straight up for a Ruger SP101 2" .357 with crimson trace grips. The Ruger was LNIB. I think I will get a backup F model soon. The Ruger will be my wife's new nightstand gun. Was it a good trade or did I get snookered. I only paid $400 for the C model.
