    Help me justify this purchase..

    I currently have a Shield 9 for my EDC. I really love the Shield, have had no issues with it at all. BUT.... I got to shoot the XDS in the .45 the other day and I really really like that gun as well. I'm just having a hard time justify buying another carry gun as I don't want 1 or the other to become a paper weight. I also have an XD 9 that I love, and a SR22 that is an absolute blast to shoot. so I'm looking for a little advice or reasoning as to why I need to buy another carry gun? And no the shield is not an option to sell I love that gun too much. do some or more of you have more than one carry gun? if so what is your reasoning? I guess I'm just having a hard time justifying having more than one carry gun so help me out.

    OutWestSystems took what I was going to say. Right now I have two carry guns my shield and an LCP. It just depends on the situation. I say stay with the shield. But that's me.

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    My vote is for the XDs, but I'm biased toward it.

    Logic? Don't go there......it's an illness with no cure. You can only treat the symptoms by acquiring the new gun. Be advised that the symptoms may return at some point. DEAL with it....it's not terminal......

    Do you want it? Can you afford it? If yes and yes, go buy it. Welcome to the dark side!

    To many this is a hobby as well as a taken responsibility to defend themselves an their loved ones. We enjoy different platforms an customizations, shooting different weapons finding an getting proficient with all of them. Plus there are different situations where you might feel more comfortable with more capacity or bigger round. Great hobby enjoy it.

    If you knew how many carry guns I have had or have .....

    Sry if you have a XD get the XDS the control and such are all the same ..

    The 9mm XDS is a great gun .. Easy to take down and I like the sigts ..But the shild is a good gun too


    If you can afford it buy it and see what one you start carrying more


    I willl also add the XDS is a pocket carry gun easy the shild no not really unless you have cargo pants on .. So there you go get the XDS for in the pocket to the market and the shild for all other app


    Also they are making a new longer slide one too in 9 and 40 I think but same mag size I think

    Justifying buying another carry gun is easy. Wait until you start justifying things like a Desert Eagle 50 AE just for the smiles at the range.

    Do you wear the same shoes every day? No. Because it's not always appropriate to do so.

    There. Now go buy that gun!

    You want another gun? You can afford it? That's all the justification you need.

    Just add the new one to the rotation. Carry X on Mon & Tues, Y on Wed & Thurs, Z on Fri & Sat. Now you'll need a Sunday gun, lol.
