how many duplicates do you own?

Not open for further replies.
My wife and I both have a Kel Tec P32, but that's about it. Oh yeah, I have two 10/22's, but they are configured so differently that they are far from being duplicates.
None as a deliberate plan. Some because I got a good deal, or bought one that is more of a shooter. Not interested in duplicates as some back up plan for whatever emergency vivid imaginations dream up. If one breaks I'll use something different.
my wife and I have Glock 19s and she has a G26 - so their is some redundancy there. I have a sig 229 and I want to get a 229 e2 so that I have a second pistol that can use it's mags. I used to not think about redundancy until recently - now it's a little more of a priority.
I suppose money spent on duplicates could be better spent on more hardware. Why have 2 of one thing if you can have 1 of something cool and another of something cooler?

I was just curious. I know some people really REALLY like one particular weapon and might like to have multiples.
Well, I'm up to 3 ARs - but each fills a different place in the arsenal. One is a multi-caliber, multi magazine type. Another is set up for Service Rifle Competition. And the third is a commemorative from my unit's tour in Iraq. And I don't count the two stripped lowers or the dedicated .22 uppers - 2 standard type for training and 2 belt fed uppers 'just for the hell of it'.
A C&R makes it easy to accumulate duplicates. The only duplicates I have now are a couple of M91/30 Mosins, and I will have K31 duplicates after I get home today as UPS shows it out on the truck for delivery.
How many of the same gun do you own?
A lot. If I like something I tend to buy spares.

I think the most of any one gun is Makarovs. 16 I believe. I haven't counted in a while.:)
I own a G26, G19, and a G34. Do those count as duplicates despite the differences in barrel length and grip length?
A duplicate is just that... multiples of the SAME gun.
To further indulge my curiousity, why do you have multiples of the same gun?

Because.....................................I want them.:)

The next question would be, Why don't you spent the money on something else?

Because.....................................I already have......................and I bought several of those to.:)
For the record, I don't have any duplicates but even if I did, it wouldn't have anything to do with being "duped by some silly saying". Many people have duplicates for whatever reason
It was a simple question for reasons having nothing to do with anything pertaining to apocalyptic theories.
My duplicates are collectibles that are no longer produced. The only near exception is a Ruger MK I Target and a MK II Target. The only reason I have two is because I stumbled on the MK I at a good price and loved the fact that it was 40+ years old and still near mint.....I wouldn't go out and buy multiples of brand new guns.
none right now. Closeat I'd come to getting a duplicate is getting a glock 23 or 27 to supplement my glock 22
I have duplicates, but only rimfire for some reason.
2 Ruger mkIIIs, one for me, one for the Mrs ... they have the same up/down-grades but things are set a bit different for individual taste.
3 Ruger 10/22 rifles, all with Tech-Sights and sling setups. One is a M1 Carbine trainer (mine), one is mostly stock (MrsBFD's), and the newest is the International model with the slightly better TS, I plan on using it for longer range stuff and it was MrdBFD's Xmas gift to me.

The Why? part is simple, they share magazines, tools, obviously ammo, and parts, I have a bag of 10/22 stuff and a pistol case of mkIII stuff, including mag loaders for each, at this point if I were to desire another semi-auto .22lr it would seem foolish to get away from the existing pile of accessories.

For other stuff, I haven't found anything that screams to be duplicated, but I do try to have two guns in any given caliber ... right now I'm trying to figure out another .45acp gun, I may end up with a duplicate Officer's Size 1911, or a CCO if I can find one for a reasonable price, just to have something a bit different.
I used to really be into having matching pairs and had quite a few. then I decided to pay off my mortgage so in the past 18 months I sold a number of the "extra" guns raise cash.

Still have a few "sets." Here are some examples.



Well, lets see~! There are 2 Smith & Wesson model 39-2's, 3 S&W model 19's
[if you include the 2.5" model 66]; and only one of all other's~! ;) :D

Oops~! I forgot one: 2 Smith & Wesson model 60's in .38 Special; one is a 2"
- nothing, the other is a 3" - 4 with heavy barrel, semi target trigger and hammer,
and with adjustable sights.
