    That said, if I find a good deal on an LCP I'll probably pick up another one so that I can carry it in my left pocket. If that happens, that will be a one off though.
    Other than as mentioned earlier on finding them at a good price, my viewpoint is life could be shorter if one is trying to adjust to a different carry if primary is in the shop.

    I was about to answer no, then I remembers I have 2 Yugoslavian sks rifles. Years ago I found one at a gun show for $175.00, a few months later I found another cosmoline soaked Yugo for $140. I bought it because I thought it was cheap. Seeing what they go for now, I don't regret those purchases a bit.

    My Brother has Two, I can’t remember what kind but, the only reason is he forgot he had one in his safe and ordered another.

    I am NOT talking about having the same brand in different sizes,eg. Glock 17, 19, and 26 or Colt 1911 Government vs Commander vs Officer models.

    I am NOT talking about having the same brand and size but in a different calibers, eg. Glock 19 and 23 or Glock 26 and 27 (same size in 9mm and .40 cal respectively).

    I am NOT talking about having the same brand or model but a different generation, eg. Glock 19 Gen 3 and Glock 19 Gen 5 or S&W M&P9 and M&P9 M2.0.

    I am talking about the exact same brand, model, caliber and generation.

    I am currently considering getting a second Walther but I'm wondering if it is worth it. Would I actually use it or need it? Should I save that cash to fund other gun-related items: ammo, my very slow AR build, training?
    Yes, I have 2 Gen III Glock 19's one for Training one for carry.

    3 beretta 92's, one is an Elite II I use as my competition gun, one is for carry and one was the Irst gun I ever purchased I shoot.

    Right now my primary light weight polymer carry gun is a Beretta PX4 Compact Carry Ernest Langdon, I'm looking for another one, so I can have one for carry one for training.

    I have 2 Walther PPQs, one for practice/training the other for carry.

    I also have 2 M&P 5" Pro 9mms, one for practice/training, the other for HD. I also have multiple ARs for the same reason.

    I own a range out back, shoot pretty frequently, couple times a week normally in addition to matches. Keeping the defensive firearms clean, got to be a PITA. So the remedy was doubles.

    I haven't cleaned the 1911 trainer in over a year, same for the G17 trainer. Get done shooting either, grab the duplicate carry, stick it in the same holster and on your way.

    Why would you own and carry a gun that you aren't "adjusted" to?

    I have two Ruger SR22s. They are my favorite plinking guns. I had one that I loved, then found one at an estate sale that was such a good deal that I couldn't pass up. I figured that I would give one to my wife or daughter to keep by their bed. They both decided on other guns, instead. So now I have two guns I really enjoy shooting.

    Does five 10/22s count?

    Two Schmidt-Rubin K-31 carbines and two M91/30 Mosin-Nagants?

    Some people are allegedly big advocates of it (e.g. the Luckygunner). If we're talking about a Glock, I don't think it makes a lot of sense. I have dry fired my Glocks so many times but I've never had a firing pin/striker break. That said, I have broken two firing pins in my Bodyguard 380, so there can be an issue even with modern guns.

    I'm thinking about getting a Beretta PX4 Storm, but Beretta advises the use of snap caps. Any gun that needs to use snap caps could use a duplicate gun if you plan to dry practicing in my opinion. It makes sense to keep a another one for abusing at the range and during training while maintaining the facsimile in perfect order for reliability.

    It also can make sense when messing with a gun. If you don't know if you'll shoot well with particular sights, for example, or shoot at all by changing out the mainspring to a lighter one (which may cause light primer strikes), then you can make the modifications on your practice gun without concern.

    They only problem is cost. It's pretty pricey because, not only are you paying for a second gun, but whatever sights and other modifications you might do should be done to both.

    7 4-inch Smith & Wesson K-Frame Military & Police (Model 10) .38 Special revolvers dating from 1918 to 1974.
    2 2-inch Smith & Wesson K-Frame Military & Police (Model 10) .38 Special revolvers from 1951 and 1996
    3 Colt Government Model .45s dating from 1947 to 2014
    2 U. S. Model 1903 Springfield .30-06 rifles
    2 No. 4 Mark 1 .303 rifles

    Some additional duplicates as well as some near duplicates of the above list are also kept on hand (with some kept "off-balance-sheet") as a need is perceived.

    Just savin' 'em "for seed."

    Does Anyone Own More Than One of The EXACT Same Gun?

    I have two S&W Model 10-5 38 revolvers, 4" blued with walnut grips and Tyler t-grips.

    K-frames just appeal to me. I have others in 22LR, 357 and 38 in various configurations.

    Close, but no cigar. Two Colt Delta Elites. One from 2009 and one from 2015.
