I just finished building my Glock .40 trinity last week when I added the G27 to my stable. I like that I can reuse holsters and vary the gun size depending on the situation and my mode of dress while keeping the same manual of arms.

Anyone else doing this with Glocks or Springers or any other brand of guns?

Yep, 9mm Glocks. 17 for HD/some carry. 19 is primary carry. 26 is my summer gun that I go to if the 19 prints too bad under a tshirt. I want to add a G34 to the list as well but other things are higher on my list since it would basically fill the same role as my G17. Like you said, using the same holsters is great and makes switching guns to fit the situation easy. Also nice that my spare mags can be used in any of them so I don't have to worry about changing them out if I swap guns. My standard spare mags are G17 mags with +2 extension and 11 coil spring. A 19 round reload ensures that I never feel under gunned when I carry the 26.

I forgot to mention mag swapping but that is a big bonus for the smaller guns. I have 3 mags for the G22 & G23 but only two for the G27 as like you I carry the lager mags as spares.

The 22 is FDE and the 23 is Gen4.

I need a full size CZ to fill mine out. I have the P-01, P-07 and RAMI, just need to decide if I want to get the 75B or a P-09.

I have the trinity, G27 with a .357sig barrel, 9mm conversion and 9mm mags.
I also have the G23 with a .357 sig barrel, 9mm conversion and 9mm mags.
I also have the G22 with a .357sig barrel, 9mm conversion and 9mm mags.

Essentially, I have the G26,19,17,27,23,22,33,32,31. I just don't have them at the same time.

I also own a G30SF with 10mm conversion and 10mm mags giving me the G29SF along with the G30SF.
I will post the pics that I have later when I get home. I don't know if I have pics of everything but I will post what I have.

MSG/ret: how do you like that SR1911 Commander? That is my next purchase once I have the funds.

AZJD1968: thats a great lineup you have. I've been thinking about adding the 9mm and .357 conversions but they are not an immediate need.

Oh yeah. I got the I-Frame .32 covered as well. I'm headed out the door just now and ought to carry the little .32. Won't though as it's too easy to pocket carry the Detective Special for the way I'm dressed and for my chores about town.

Haven’t had a chance to take it to the range yet but if it’s like it’s big brother SR1911 I will be quite happy.

I understand. None of that was really a need for me either except for the first Glock which was the G22. After that it was all want :smile: and I got the rest as I could afford it. Took a while but I got there. The biggest problem is the ammo for all that.
Having only one caliber is simple, but I like to have options.

I did with the Glocks. 31C, 23, 27. I had all three, and they were all 3 caliber capable 40, 357, 9mm. I discovered that he 31C was perfect for my hand, the 23 was so-so and the 27 with 23 mags and the grip enhancer/grip force was perfect. I found that the 27 and the 31C covered my needs and I never carried the 23 anymore so the 23 left to help fund the S&W 629 PC.:danceban:

I bought an M&P 9 a while back, then lucked out a few days later & found a Shield. Decided I needed to round out the "Trinity" with an M&P 9C a few months later. All great guns!

That was just before the heartbreaking boating accident. :blink:

I don't know what the OPer thinks but it counts in my book!

I was talking about separate guns as I didn't consider the option of the same gun in 3 different barrel lengths but that will work.
