    I got a good deal on a Sig P220 .45 here a couple months back. My intention (budget permitting) is to get a second semi auto. Both would be for home security if needed. My initial thought was to buy to Springfield 1911s 'til I found the Sig. Now my dilemma:

    A) do I buy another P220 so that I have matching ammo, magazines, actions, etc.
    B) Buy another Sig in a different caliber
    or
    C) just go with whatever comes up on a good deal regardless of Make and Model.

    I guess the pros of having two of the same gun are kinda obvious. As well as the cons of getting something different. Maybe the more basic question is: does it matter? As long as I have two semi autos and keep them separate and am comfortable with both.

    Anyway, need some clarifying suggestions and any experience you may have to share. Thanks.

    Stay with the same caliber, you can't go wrong with the .45ACP. orchidhunter

    I love 45acp...

    But you gotta branch out a bit. A fine revolver in .38spl or .357mag. A .44spl is a great home defense round.

    unless you want to spend $$$$ on different magazines, then get a twin that you already know inside and out - I say this because you said this a defensive gun - if it was just a fun gun or range gun, then get something different - once you have your backup/twin, THEN get that wheel gun...;)

    Ok, why the lower caliber revolvers? I think they're great for showing off and playing around with them. However, aren't they impractical for tactical situations? Harder to reload, smaller bullet capacity, harder trigger pull, etc.

    Here's a suggestion: get a Sig P229/226 in .40/.357. Then you're a barrel away from being able to enjoy three calibers.
