    I've got two Commander length 1911s but they're set up differently. The Nighthawk T3 is a CCO configuration and the other is an unaltered blue Colt 1991. Close enough that the Colt is put back as a redundant backup. At some point I'll add another Colt Commander so the two are more closely identical.

    To me it makes perfect sense to have a matching backup that's identical in case the primary goes out of service (at the 'smith, damaged parts, etc). It'd be nice if I could afford another matching T3 but that's not gonna happen in this lifetime.

    Gun + Gun + Parts = Primary + Backup + Keeping at least one functioning. The best thing is that you don't have to keep one of them up on blocks in your front yard.

    I have owned - and still do - MANY guns (rifles, handguns & shotguns) and found that over the years I liked a number of them so much that I wanted to have more than one. Having a second or third BUG gives me a duplicate replacement when the primary is "down" which doesn't require me to learn the specifics and procedures of a different weapon. It also allows me to use the same parts and accessories for more than one gun. I currently have three guns/calibers where I have more than one copy of the gun.

    Looking to get a pair (or 3) G19's as well.

    Yep, had two G36's. One to shoot and the other never been fired. The boss wanted a G36 really bad so I sold him the unused one. I bought both when they just came out and were hard to find and thought a backup would be nice. I also have two Beretta 686 Silver Pidgeon O/U but one is 12 gauge and the other is a 20/28 gauge set. Not quite 2 of the same though.

    Two j-frames, a 642 and a 442. Same gun, different finish...

    Yes...... I have 2 P229's in .40 S&W, for the following reason. It has been said that if one is ever involved in a defensive shooting, your carry weapon will be taken by law enforcement, and will be kept as evidence until after any court proceedings. It is because of this one would want to keep an exact second of the carry weapon as to be able to continue to carry, without having to switch holsters and carry gear, as well as it is the same weapon one has trained with.
