If one is none and two is one...

... then what handgun do you like so much that you've bought an extra copy (or more) of the exact same gun. And no, this isn't about a second "similar model", but the exact same model and barrel length.

For me, it's a pair of S&W M396 Air Lites (Mountain Lites) in .44 Special:


I'm currently in the process of adding a second Glock 17 Gen3 to my collection. Also, another Ruger Blackhawk 5-1/2" Stainless Convertible in .45 Colt/.45 Auto would be comforting.

This could get ugly...

There's a few that I've wanted to have a matched pair of. Not to have a spare but to practice shootin' "double-fisted". I just like variety and always end up getting something else.

I had 2 Ruger 5.5" Redhawks. Sold one because I didn't need a backup. Additionally I bought a gun with the proceeds to fill out my battery a little better.

Two Charter Arms On Duty, 38 specials for concealed carry tucked into a custom leather vest, lined leather pockets at 40 degree cant, my version of a New York Reload

Three M57 Yugo Tokarevs, two purchased from J&G here localy, third bought at an estate sale along with a truckload of ammo. First two M57 and almost 4000 rds milsurp ammo under $720 tax included. Estate sale another M57 and just a little over 7000 rds milsurp for $350. I am going to go on a crusade to kill every soda can I can get to come into range. I will never live long enough to shoot that much ammo, but I am going to try to be down to my last magazine before I die.

S&W K38's.

I've got a 1957 4-screw K38, a 1972 Model 14-3 and a 1977 factory Single-Action only Model 14-3. They are all 6" versions.

And I recently sold a 1955 5-screw K38 'cause I wouldn't want to have too many of them at once....

If I had an extra $1200 sitting around, I'd pick up another S&W 460V. I love that gun.

Magnumite - Orange and White Brittany here. Whacha got? :D

March 1, 2011, 12:27 AM
Nobody has mentioned Magnum Research BFRs?!!! I only have one so far but I have almost enough saved up to buy a second one. When you start blasting 45-70 ammo out of a revolver, that turns heads at the range!

Gordon, I don't mean to pry, but what are all the things on your enviable combat belt? I see a speed-loader, a couple of edged weapons, and two pistols with fat circular mid-sections. (Just kidding; I know what a revolver is.) I can't think of any blade the size of the larger one - it's petite for a machete and laaaarge for a belt knife.
And what's the thing at far right?

March 1, 2011, 01:49 AM
That there is an Alaskan hunting belt. I "combat" with semi autos.
Anyway that is a 1989 S&W 629 Mountain Revolver .44mag 4" and a 629-2 .44 6.5" in Mad Dog Kydex., a speed loader in kydex, a Maxepedition rolly polly dump pouch that can hold a waterbottle or what ever, a flashlight in kydex, a Mad Dog BearCat 5.5"x3/16" skinning utility blade and to act as an over the shoulder strap to support all that crap a Mad Dog Dundee rig with a 9"x 1.25"x 1/4" Rezine which is my favorite "sticking" knife for animals. Actually all up the weight is just over 6 pounds loaded for bear!:)

The lighter above guns are Scandium 296 .44spl 5 shot and a rare 242 .38+p 7 shot with clips so no belt or holster bulk is needed and a Ti. handled 7" D2 Darrel Ralph that is real big and real light, kinda like the 296 !:D

Exactly alike with the exception of grips...CZ 27

Not exactly identical, but as close as two pistols can come and not be...

Hi-Powers... one is a Nazi marked FN with the tangent sight. My shooter is a '93 Browning "Capitan" that also has the tangent sights.

On my one day list is another Capitan. Also another Single-Six Birdshead in .32 H&R. And maybe another PP in .32acp.

I'd also like another Luger. But this one would have to be a shooter. The one I have is in 99%+ condition, it rarely gets handled, and never shot.

And... And... And... Yeah, I've had the sickness for a while. And I can't find the one gun that will cure it.:banghead:
