I am trying a new forum..
I have one question.
I will ask it after some explanation;
This is lengthy, but if I just ask the question I will get bombarded with safety tips, caliber comparisons, what I should and shouldn't do... etc.
Due to my experience in the first forum I tried, I will try and shape the question as best I can to avoid 95 percent of replies being information I did not ask for. I quickly learned that many gun enthusiasts are knowledgable and want to share it (too much..).
I am not trying to tell any free blooded American what they can and cannot tell me.. I am just asking that if you want to truly help, please just answer the specific question I am going to ask.. so I may narrow down my research before I decide on what gun(s) I will look up, before I then decide to go to a gun shop to handle them.
Please don't over-analyze my question since I have already decided how I want to carry. Please don't try to debate my choices that I have already made.
The only reason I turned to a forum in the first place was to START to narrow down my choices in gun(s).
O.k, I am getting there...
Please believe that I am considering safety, and practicing to become proficient, and many other things other than the specific question I will ask.
I want TWO guns (NOT THE QUESTION)
I want a SMALL/LIGHT gun for concealed carry on my person (please don't tell me about what caliber is better, and whether or not I need IWB or open carry holster)....
.... and a SLIGHTLY LARGER gun to have in my car (please don't tell me I need to lock my car, or bring the gun in at night, or that if my car gets stolen a crook can kill someone with my gun..).
HERE IS THE QUESTION;
"What are some identical pairings of guns in a little/big brother style?"
Before you answer;
What I mean by this is; I want each gun to have all the buttons and levers in the same place and flick or press the same direction when I go to use it so I don't have to think about which gun I am using.
I don't care about trigger pull length, but if one is double action I want the other to be also...
I don't care about how hard I have to pull the trigger on each one. (Please don't elaborate on why that is important)
I don't care about recoil.
If one has the mag/clip release on the left side I want the other gun to have the release on the same side, in the same spot, and press/flick/operate the SAME way.
Same ammo in each gun would be PERFECT. Don't care about what load is best for each gun, just want to buy the same bullets for each gun... I am not interested in maxing out the velocity I can get with a certain caliber.
I did learn that some Glocks have interchangeable mags with different size guns.. (Please don't compare brands..)
DON'T CARE WHAT BRAND THE GUNS ARE, just as long as they are the same..
If one has the safety on the right side, I want the other to have the safety on the right side in the same spot, and work the same.
If one has no safety, I want the other to have no safety...
So if the above words have not got your fingers typing out a list of do's and dont's... please help me with this;
WHAT ARE SOME IDENTICALLY FUNCTIONING IN EVERY WAY PAIRING OF GUNS..
One small for conceal carry is what I want.
One slightly larger for car is what I want.
Preferably same ammo.
I will look up suggestions and get specs on them before I go and see them.
THANKS AND SORRY FOR WHAT MIGHT BE TAKEN AS A FRUSTRATED FIRST POST!
The question again is; "What are a small/slightly larger pairing of guns that work exactly the same way?"
That is what I personally am interested in.
If you know of guns of the same brand that work the same way, though different sizes.. please tell me.. If you don't, please don't reply...
