Life's ultimate question

Now that I have your attention, I was wondering. Most people I know, and from the looks of it on this board as well, own multiple guns in the same caliber. The thing is - they own multiple revolvers in the same caliber, but don't seem to own multiple pistols. So a little poll to answer the question.

Do you own multiple revolvers in the same caliber - yes or no
multiple pistols in the same - yes or now
more revolver pairs?
more pistol pairs?

Me thinks the answer is going to be more revolver pairs - just because they have more "character".:D

This looks like fun. I have three 9mms, three .45s, but one's a revolver, three .357s, and five .38s. I only have one .22 pistol and think I need a revolver or two.

You have no option for all of the above.

I own more pairs of autos because I just own more autos. In fact I own, like, 4 pairs of 9mm.

Though I'm more of a 40 or 45 guy.

I have a thing for S&W k-frames. I own several. They're "just right" in so many ways.

Tied at 3 revolvers in 2 calibers, and 3 pistols in 2 calibers. Where do I fit?

I own multiple revolvers in .45 Colt, for Cowboy shooting. I own revolvers in .38 spl, and pistols in various calibers with multiples in .45 ACP, AND I have a pistol and a revolver that also match in calibers. Revolver pairs (I have a consecutive pair) were bought for CAS, and had a special price for two. It was economics and the game, not character. :)

Could of been all the above also. 2-.22's, 3-.38 sp., 2-.45acp.

Need the All option. And why'd you stop at pairs? What about triplets and quadruplets and stuff?

What about triplets and quadruplets and stuff?

+1 on that! I own multiples of each.

I think the multiple revolvers in the same caliber is winning because the 357/38 dominates the market in revolvers. I'm guessing the people who voted for that own 357s/38s.

There isn't really any semiauto caliber that dominates that market. The closest may be 9mm or 45ACP.

Life's ultimate question

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now that I have your attention, I was wondering.

This is definitely NOT Life's Ultimate question. That would be something like do you know where you be / go if your heart suddenly stopped. How many psityols you own of a given calibre may have some importance but is pale when it comes to eternity. Just this morning I had a slight brush with death (health related) everything has seemed to self correct itself and I'm still the mean ole so-and-so that I've always been; but at 3:00 am EST I was shall we say un-nerved. I would like to suggest we rethink our priorities.

Poll needs more questions.
None of them fit my needs so I can't vote.

I own multiple pistols & revolvers in the same caliber.

yeah, the poll answers don't make sense. if you vote option 3, wouldn't 1 also be true? possibly 2 as well?

and life's ultimate questions are more along the lines of:
who are we?
where did we come from?
where are we going?

Yep -- and there are some models I have several duplicates of.

I am in the business of helping people answer life's ultimate questions. I have one .357,one .38, one 40 cal., one .22 pistol, and one 9mm and like all of them.

On eternal things? I'll cling to the One.

There are only four and a half useful pistol cartridges:

1. The .22 LR. I own two .22 Automatics, one .22 revolver and two M1911s with conversion kits.

1 1/2. The .38 2pecial. I own two revolvers (one in the possession of my oldest daughter.)

2. The .357. I own three revolvers (one in the possession of my oldest daughter.)

3. The .45 ACP. I own three automatics (two currently wearing .22 conversion kits.)

4. The .45 Colt. I own three revolvers, two Ruger Blackhawks and one Colt New Service.

.45's are quickly make-in' like rabbits in the safe! Not sure what goes on in there but its getting crowded!

I'll take a half dozen or so off your hands -- strictly as a favor, you understand.:p

Mine too, and I know why. Its because 357SIG's are replacing them, and the .45's just get to see me when the safe's door is open. :)

I can't count that high! Lots of 22's - check! Lots of .38's - check! Lots of .45's - check! It would take too long to figure out how to vote, and there might be a tie - need more options!

Me thinks the answer is going to be more revolver pairs - just because they have more "character"That does seem to be the case. I would have thought more folks would have autos these days.

Let's see.

In revolvers:

two 22LRs
three 357
two 38 S&W
one 38 Special
one 9mm

In autochuckers:

three 45acp
two 40S&W
two 9mm Para
three 9x18 Mak
three 7.62x25
three 32ACP
two 22LR

I own a couple of the same caliber. Some pistols and some autos. One auto and one revolver are the chambered for the same cartridge. I thought the answer was 42.

I own 8 handguns,4 revolver and 4 autos. two of my revolvers are chambered for .357 magnum and two of my autos are chambered for .40S&W,one advantage to this is when I sit down to do handloads I don't have to switch over brass as often;allowing me to get more done.

Agreed.

This is a very old pic (lots of changes since then) and this is just the pistols (no revolvers), but you'll notice lots of duplication...

don't have any semiautos and I 'inherited' dad's revolvers and this caused having more than one revolver in the same caliber...in this case .38 spl +p and .357 mag

I tend to collect by manufacturer and I CCW autos, so that's how things started.

Now that I have many autos covered, I'm starting to work on revolvers...while continuing to round out my auto collection.
