    I got a couple of them as well (bought out of fear, right before the last election, thank you Hillary) -- I've taken one out, and I'm finding that I really like the Wilson-Rogers "Super-Stoc" -- it's a friggin' nice stock.

    If one is good two is better.
    Having a spare whatever is never a bad idea IMO.

    I don't require that my self-defense and practice guns be identical.
    I do require that they have very similar manuals-of-arms and basic characteristics.

    She agreed with the other wife.

    That's why I like guns and cars. Can have one and another one half its age and there are no hang ups

    I have 4 S&W Model 10s. K-frames are just right in so many ways.

    Asking that question of a guy who can't even tell you how many Smith and Wesson K frame .38 Specials he owns probably isn't a good idea. :D

    The only real duplicates I have are a 1919 and 1921 Colt Vest Pocket. I have a Beretta 81 and 81BB and a 6 or 7 Walther PP series but none are duplicates. I would rather add something different to my collection than have copies esp. modern easily replaceable models.

    I have doubles or triples of alot of firearms I own. mostly because the wife seems to want what ever I buy so I learned to buy 2.

    A 2nd identical rifle would be handy for when I take friends out shooting,,,
    For the same reason that I like having two identical .22 pistols.

    I've considered getting another Mossberg 702 Plinkster just for range use,,,
    I've owned one for a while now and like plinking with it at the range.

    What I would really like is to find another Henry Acu-Bolt to go with the one I already own,,,
    Tin can slaying with single-shots is very satisfying and is also ammo efficient.

    Two Model 10s, two GP100s, two DW 15-2s, two Speed Sixes but in different variations of barrel or caliber. Glad to see I'm not the only one.;)

    If you're crazy, it's not because of this. I know a lot of people who have two identical or very similar guns.

    One Glock 23 has day sights, the other a single night sight.

    Let the best pistol win.

    On guns that I use like my BERETTA 92's and RUGER Security Six's, I have several of each. That way, I can always use an identical weapon if one is seized (like after a shooting, even if justified) or has to be repaired. I like that the familiarity of the controls, trigger, grip shape and shooting and reloading drill will be automatic, since I use them so often.

    I'm not really the right person to ask about sane behavior.

    But it sounds like you have gotten good advice and response here.

    When it comes to S&W revolvers, no such
    thing as having only one of the same model.

    Mind you, I don't mean having duplicates of
    every model.

    But what's wrong with having a half dozen or
    so Model 15 or Model 19s and possibly a
    few Model 586s, not to mention svelte Model 10s.

    But certainly none of those obese N-frames.
    That's gross.

    Well, maybe one.

    Indy I sold my only P38 years ago. MISTAKE. These are P1's. Two M1's are a good start for me too. Now I need 2 more!

    Ahhh we all make mistakes, I did not get one of those P1s when they 1st came in at a little over 100 each (Could kick myself).. Was buying other things... Thought there would always be time enough at last to get one...

    I have a bit of a thing for the French P38s...the much vaunted Grey Ghosts

    Silly to have 2. Dont do it :rofl:

    I should add the firearms I have and will buy as a gift to my son are the same that were given to me by my dad. Handing them down might be more sentimental but it would also mean im buying another to replace it anyways haha
