How important is this question? To me it just makes sense to have 2 or 3 Pistols that are the same platform for seemless switching. New to CC always liked 1911"s so I have full size and 3 inch model, both have big ambi safety's. Have been carrying 3 inch past month or so, noticed last night the safety on the right hand side was loose! No good of course! So put on full size and I am good to go, same muscle memory.
I did 10 mins of draw practice anyway.

I have compact and full-sized Glocks and M&Ps in my edc line-up. Four guns, two holsters, seventeen-round spare mags. Nothing to not like.

Works revolvers and Glocks also.
Exactly, I am curious about how I may have felt if I didn't have another after so much practice and feeling comfortable with these, and of course after getting used to being armed you don't want to be unarmed.
Is this an excuse to buy a third?

I like the idea that under stress I will shoot and manage the pistol the same, regardless of whether I am using my Glock 27 or 22. Also, I really like the fact that I can use my G22 magazine in my G27 - makes it easier for having extra mags laying around for home defense. Before I started carrying (less than two years ago) this didn't matter much to me (I mainly shot a 1911 and a Beretta 92 - I didn't even like Glocks back then). Now, it is a much bigger factor.

Never needed an excuse. Not all of them just a few.

Neat idea but there's no way I am going to limit myself to a "platform." Switching seamlessly is of no concern. For me it makes more sense to play the field and have fun while doing it.

If it works better for you to do this then that's the way to go. It doesn't hurt to be familiar with actually shooting other platforms though, just in case...you know , of a zombie Apocalypse.

I suppose this line of thinking works, but id rather be able to pick up any platform, any style, anytime, and be able to shoot it as needed, rather then be focused on one style.

About the only style I dont have is a revolver, but that'll change soon.

I routinely carry a 1911 with a Springfield XDS-45 as a pocket BUG. I also have polymer pistols and revolvers that I carry.

That is one nice collection!! I traded a Ruger .357 that I had for 30 years towards my Ultra Raptor II, and I recently bought a Glock 36.
At this point I am set on a 1911 3,4 or 5 inch barrel, in a Dale Fricke Archangel,& 2 spare mags.
Same pistol, same place on the body, no thinking:smile:

I've got several SP101s that can fit various carry or training needs.
