    I normally like to take two of the same caliber to the range; My favorite pair are my Gen4 Glock 21 and my SW1911; how about you folks?

    Usually some version of these (1911 and P-35):

    I enjoy pitting my Beretta 92 against my HK USP. Both are great range guns that shoot and feels similar. Which is best.... ?

    I do this with .22lrs all the time too. Which is better or more fun, the Walther, the Daewoo, the GSG? Is a new Bersa nicer than an old Beretta? I love these little unofficial side-by-side "shoot-offs". Lots of fun. :D

    Give me a Ruger 10/22, a Buckmark .22 camper, a few cans of soda and a warm, sunny day, and I'm a happy man. :)

    I usually bring a CZ 75B 9mm and my Remington R1 Enhanced 1911.

    That would be Veritas and Equitas,,,

    That would be Veritas and Equitas,,,
    My matched pair of Ruger 22/45 Mk-III's.

    I enjoy trying to "dual wield" these pistols,,,
    If I alternate one round left then one round right,,,
    I almost get to an acceptable level of accuracy on center mass.

    If I try to shoot them at the same time like in the movies,,,
    All I do is turn money into noise,,,
    But it's fun none-the-less.

    Any other time I go I almost always take a pair of handguns,,,
    Usually it's one pistol in centerfire and another identical gun in rimfire.

    My CZ-75B and CZ-75B Kadet are a good example.

    czechs2.jpg

    50 rounds of 22 LR followed by ten rounds of 9mm,,,
    That's a nice round of practice that isn't too expensive,,,
    Repeat as necessary for however many rounds you want to expend.

    I have several other rimfire/centerfire pairs of guns,,,
    The same ammo routine is applied to them,,,
    Lotsa trigger pulls for fewer dollars.

    I like mixing it up. My 3" model 10 S&W and my worked over 1911, or maybe a CZ and a Python.

    I'm more of an apples and oranges type of guy, not apples and apples. I rarely take two similar style pistols with me, unless I'm specifically comparing something.

    I like to pair a big boomer with a little one. So, the 1911-22 goes along with the .45 1911. The SP101-22 goes with the .357 revolvers. The Nagant revolvers go with the Mosin-Nagant rifles.

    The ones I have the most ammo loaded for, but my G20 and Ruger standard are my fun guns.

    1911 and whatever else is avaiable.
    One thing I have found is that if three of us are shooting, try to have one firing a wheel gun (no brass) and the other two firing different calibers, so the brass is not a separation issue! Can be quite confusing when three .45acp are spitting lead!

    Beretta M9 and G19. I just enjoy seeing how hilariously large and heavy the M9 is, compared to the G19.

    If paired by caliber, either my 10/22 and Beretta 71, or HP995 carbine and a BHP.

    Currently it's my Henry Lever action .22 and my Heritage .22 single action revolver, but it's subject to change without warning.

    For me, its usually a .45 (ether a Sig 1911 or P220) and my Model 10. Occasionally its a .357 or .44 as well or in place of the .45, but my trusty old Model 10 is always along for the ride.

    I wish I had pics but:

    Most often it's my H&K P7M8 (or M13) paired with my H&K USP9 full size

    But I have a new pairing that I'll try out this weekend:

    My Smith PC 627 V Comp and Smith PC 629 V Comp

    All pairs are always accompanied by my Benelli M95E Atlanta .22 LR

    RIA "Tactical" 1911 in .45ACP and 9mm. My grip is not what it used to be so a 2-300 rounds of 9mm shooting steel plates after 1-200 rounds of .45ACP makes for a very nice outing.

    2 favorites are my Rossi Stainless steel 2 1/2 inch barrel revolver .38/.357 and my Springfield Champion .45.
    The Rossi revolver has functioned flawlessly since I got it new in 1986. I shoot mostly .38 through it at the range due to ammo cost. Once in a while will shoot 6 .357 just to remind myself how it feels to shoot .357 in the Rossi quite a difference! This Rossi looks brand new despite how many times I have fired it. Like all, I clean it right away after firing.
    The Champion .45 is really my favorite because of its balance when I fire it. It's really a fine rugged pistol. Totally dependable.
