need some help and advice

need some help and advice guys, i got a browning blr .22 that we bought from my neighbor when her husband died, so it has some sentimental value and is in very good shape, guy i hunt with who is basically my big brother has a s&w short barrel .357 cc gun that would be great for me when i turn 21 n get a cc permit, and he really likes the BLR, he offered $250 for the BLR and i turned it down, n then said he might be able to work out a deal in which we trade .22 for .357, i just don't know if i wanna do it, the BLR is in no way new and is in excellent shape and is a tackdriver even with open sights, so what do ya'll think, i'm open to any and all opinions

Its up to you....

I like .357 mags, cause you can plink with .38 special ammunition (way cheaper), and then load it up with what counts to carry around (.357mag).

Speaking for myself, I would hold onto it if possible. 22s are an excellent training/introduction caliber for new and old shooters. Browning will be around for a while yet, and as you mention, it's a tack driver.
I try to be proactive in introducing new people to shooting, and a 'lil tack driver' with light recoil is just the thing to inspire confidence in noobies.
Plus the ammo costs.
Plus the emotional factor.
Best of luck with whatever you decide!

I would trade the browning 22 for the S & W 357, You can always buy a 22 for $50.

I have several 22's and it is what I am teaching my fiance on. I carry a 45. If you are in love with the s&w 357 that your buddy has then I say it will be fine. I tend to carry sentimental value to far sometimes and I would keep the 22 and buy myself a carry weapon.
