    I try to buy a carbine in the same caliber to go along with what ever pistol I acquire.
    It is easier on reloading and it is interesting to compare the difference in accuracy and performance.

    My current ones are

    Ruger MKII and 10/22

    Taurus PT92 and Marlin Camp 9

    S&W 629 and Winchester 94 trapper

    Walther G22 and P22

    Underwood M1 carbine and Ruger blackhawk .30 carbine

    I'm interested to see what other combos THR members have come up with.

    The only thing I have that fits would be my Marlin Camp Carbine M45 and my Colt 1991 1*.

    I have just purchased a CZ 75B in 9mm and hear that the KelTec Sub 2000 that uses the Sig mags will work with the CZ mags. I'll have to get verification on that before I shell out the bucks, however.

    I do like having carbines for home defense and in the truck. But, I have to wonder if there is any value over the .223/5.56 AR variants and their longer range and harder hitting power. Of course, this an ages old argument that seems to have no answer.

    My next gun purchase will most likely be an AR lower that I can build up all on my own. Question is, do I go with a 5.56 chambering or a 6.8? :p

    I do have a Ruger MKII and 10/22, however, I never saw much reason to have a long gun that fired a pistol cartridge. That is until I saw some ballistic info that showed the .357 mag from a long gun (lever action) with equal or better stats than the 30-30. I'm still mulling that over.

    Marlin 1894 & USFA Rodeo/Colt New service in .45Colt

    I'll replace the 1894 in .38/.357 in 2005 so that will be paired with either my Blackhawk or Model 28.

    Well, I never considered them a matched set or anything, but I suppose I do have a couple. I've got a Ruger 22/45 and a 10/22 and I also have a Springfield .45 and an HK USC.

    I would like to get a Marlin lever gun in .357 to go with my S&W 686, and if anyone ever comes out with a semi 10mm carbine I'll seriously consider it.

    So far just the Ruger 22/45 and 10/22. I'm hoping to add a 9mm carbine to go with the Sig someday, unless I find something to match the Garand. Do Encores come in 30-06?.....I've got to go do research! :)

    Edit:

    Yep, the Encores come in 30-06. I will have one. I don't know when. I don't know where I will find it. But I will have one. :evil:
    Unless anyone knows of a 30-06 revolver? Anyone

    Ruger 77V rifle and T/C Contender in .223. I've been trying to find a single load that gives top accuracy in both. I haven't found it yet but that's part of the fun of reloading! :D

    If I ever get a 9mm pistol, I already have the Kel-Tec SUB2000. Otherwise, right now it's an IVer Johnson POS .22 and a Mossberg 340 .22.

    Clements Bisley and Rossi '92

    Both .45 Colt. The Bisley in Hard Chrome and the '92 in stainless.
    The Bisley shoots better than I do. I need to upgrade the Rossi's factory sights.

    Can I play if I don't have a combo yet?

    I am working on it. I would like to find something to go with my Marlin 1894 in .357.

    Not sure yet what I want. Actually I am stuck between a single action and a double action.

    Double action as a practical choice. Able to use speed loaders. Preferable in a self defense situation. I consider it a little more versatile.

    Single action. Just plain fun. Hmm...Cowboy action shooting maybe? I have always has a soft spot for them.

    Note: Please don't turn this into a double vs. single thread. I was just commenting on my choices for my combo. I Don't want this thread to get moved to the revolver section for jsalcedo sake

    Unfortunately, Marlin didn't take my suggestion to heart, to come out with their camp carbine in 10mm, so I don't have the combo I was wanting.
