No, I have multiples, but they're different variations of the same model.

A S&W Model 66 is different than a Model 66-2. My S&W Model 686-3 4" is different than my Model 686-3 6" Classic Hunter. My GLOCK Gen 2 G17 is different than my Gen 3, Gen 4, and Gen 5 G17.

Just buying a pile of Gen 3 GLOCK 19s is boring. Trying to get one of every variation is fun.

All of my current handguns are Ruger revolvers. Not the same models, but I do have a Super Blackhawk and a vaquero in .44magnum.

I'll add my several HK P7s; phenomenal guns, accurate, and completely ambidextrous - nice for a LH like me

My accumulation features more Colt's than anything else. I really need to do an inventory, I should say update my inventory list, there have been family additions.

I also have three H&K P7s, of which this former Bundeswehr pistol that was used by the bodyguards is the rarest.

I also had two Korth Combats that were pretty identical but gave one to my son as a graduation gift.

I also had four Parabellum P.08s but only kept the best shooter.

I have three Walther PPs, one in .22 l.r., one in 7,65 Browning and one in 9mm Kurz.
The Colt 1911s in .45

Almost forgot the FN HP ...

Interesting. I'm trying to understand the appeal of these gigantic 22 lr pistols. So they are for range fun purposes primarily?
They are target pistols and great tools to learn pistolcraft on a budget. When I had a serious falling plate addiction, I shot about 3,500 rounds of centerfire each month. To use a .22 is kind of an understudy.

In European ISSF matches you will not find many shooters that have not started out with a .22 l.r. and the elusive 10 ring can be scratched with a .22 l.r. as well as with a .45.
FWIW, one of the largest pistols I have owned was a Hammerli 120 free pistol, a single shot .22 l.r. that is used for the 50m matches.
