Defensive Carry Pistol - Backup Plan - Need Some Input
Here's where my mind has me today...
If, and I realize nothing is said or done yet, but if the current administration passes some draconian laws and they successfully take the semi-auto market and strangle it, I will still (presumably) get to keep my G19 that I carry daily. However, since it's never been much of an issue before, I only really have one 'carry' size gun. I have other options but none of them would fit my 'ideal' carry weapon criteria... This is obviously not an issue unless something catastrophic happens to my current carry gun, but it has started concerning me. What if I have a kb and lose my current carry weapon? Or any other unforeseen malady.
What are your thoughts, plans, or actions given this situation? Do you guys keep more than one 'ideal' carry gun, or even a spare identical to your chosen carry weapon? Is falling back on something heavier, bigger or whatever an acceptable option or should I make an effort, however unlikely, to find a replacement? Am I over-thinking all of this and I just need to relax and not worry about something that hasn't happened after something else that hasn't happened?

I not for playing games of conjecture, try never to. Nothing has happened yet and I don't forsee it, nor do I fall a victim to the loud mouth ranting threats. Nothing will turn me frantic. I'm going to continue about my business as I always do, confident that I will go unaffected by anything that might happen. I'm a "cross the bridge when I get there" kind of guy. Premeditated aint my thing...
That said, I only collect pistols that are CCW worthy. I'm not into these overthetop high capacity double stack, guns. I'm not Rambo, this isn't a war zone, I'm not going to be up against an army or a gang and were I, my gun would stay holstered and I'd use my gift of gab. I want and have no more than 8 and no less than 6 round capacity guns.
So to answer the question, every gun I have, with exception of my little m4 style 22lr carbine, is a potential carry/back up carry piece. And they are all the same platform/style, so essentially, other than differences in dimensions, they're all the same gun... 1911like, SAO trigger & manual hammer.
