What pistol do you own duplicate(s) of?

And what is the reason? Variations? Paranoia about parts? You carry twins? Another for a significant other? Competition backup?

For me it is the Walther PPS, my EDC. I own 4 and all sport the Limbsaver 12012. A standard black .40 with laser sight (my EDC in an Ace pocket holster with the shortest flush mag), an OD .40, an OD 9mm with night sites, and a blaugrau 9mm. Sometimes I carry spare PPS's in my boot tops.

Two Glocks 26, 34. I like them and the 26 I carry.
A bunch of N frame S&W because I am addicted to them and most are 44 special.
3 1911’s Do you really need a reason?

I forgot some, Cap and ball revolvers. Two are sequential SN's around 10

Ask this question over on the 1911 Forum and you'd get hundreds of answers--all the same answers!

Duplicates, as in exactly the same, just two models:

2 S&W 586s, 6", just because I like them.
3 Ruger Bisley Vaqueros, 4-1/2", in .45 Colt (a pair and a spare) for CAS

If the definition of "duplicate" includes the same gun in different barrel lengths, different calibers, or slightly different configurations, the list would be much, much longer.

2 Pythons. I bought the first one because I always wanted an early (1960) Python. Then, when a '57 Python became available at a price I couldn't refuse I had to snap that one up too.

I always own two of my EDC. One as primary, the other for backup/training.

I do not own any duplicates and never will. life is too short and dollars too few to buy more than one of the same gun.

HK P2000.

I stippled one for better grip and it made a massive difference, but then it started becoming irritating to carry. I found a 2013 used one for a good price and I keep that stock.

I have a couple of pairs,,,

I have a pair of Ruger 22/45 Mk-III's,,,
I call them Equitas and Veritas,,,
My Modern Dueling Pistols.



I also have a pair of Beretta NEOS pistols,,,
Actually I have three of them but one is dedicated to the Carbine Kit.

Meet Naomi, Wynona, & Ashley.


I just like having sets of things,,,
When I take a newbie out shooting,,,
It's nice that we are both using the same gun.

Or I could just be ruled by my OCD tendencies.

Of all my other pistols,,,
The one I would like to have a duplicate of,,,
Would be Morgana, my Smith & Wesson Model 67,,,
Pretty much for the same reason as the other two sets I own.

Not Exactly Duplicates, but...

Currently four (soon to be five) 1911-types - An original Colt 1911, made in 1918, two Series 70 Colts (one's engraved) and a Ballester Molina. Next on the list will be a 1911-A1 Colt made in 1944.

Only two High Powers, but they're not exactly duplicates either, one's an FN, the other's a FEG. BTW, they shoot equally well.

Well, that's you decision. But I found it easieer to buy a new gun than to re-sight in my gun each time.

Case in point: Ruger .44 Magnum Super Blackhawk. Sighted in for 240 gr. bullets at 1400 fps. Want to use 180 gr. JHP at 1700 fps. So, bought another Super Blackhawk. Then found a beautiful set of walnut grips for a Super Blackhawk and bought them. Then had to buy a Super Blackhawk for those grips.
