If more than one, how many of the same firearm model(s) have you ever bought or owned?

Repeats of the same model even if you didn't have them all at the same time. For any reason, except as a retailer or business. Personally bought or owned at any time even if you trade often or make private sales where allowed.

Votes will be anonymous in case you don't like to publicly share that info.

Another thread made me wonder. Someone said they'd bought four Shield Pluses and I just bought my sixth, for a gift to a relative when she gets her carry permit this week. I recall that some of you have mentioned you've had multiples of some Glock models or ARs. And some have said they've bought replacements for guns they had in the past but lost or let go, maybe more than once.

Needs to be the same model in the same caliber, but can be different generations. Different barrel lengths, sight systems, colors, etc. are okay if it's otherwise the same model. No need to split hairs that much. Use your own judgment for any other variations.

It doesn't matter whether you had all of them at the same time or not. The reason you had them doesn't matter, nor where you got them or what you did with any of them.

Share any details that you'd like to share, of course.

For instance, I bought the Shield Pluses at different times for gifts (perfectly legal where I live as long as the recipient can legally own a firearm) and the first one for me. I still have that one and the newest one for now. I've never had more than three of them at any one time but in all I've bought six. I also bought a duplicate of my 642 revolver because there are two people I wanted to have one someday. And I've had two of the regular Shields. So I'll vote 6 for the Shield Pluses, and also vote 2 because of the two 642s and the two regular Shields I've had. I hope that makes sense.

I was first going to ask only about the greatest quantity, but decided to allow for multiple answers for those who have had more than one of several different models. No need to vote 1 unless you've never gotten more than one of any model.

I'm just curious about how common it is to have had more than one of the same model(s) of firearms over the years for whatever reason, or to buy the same model more than once.

I’ve bought 3 or 4 Glock 17s. I’ve bought a couple of Beretta 92fs as well.
Mostly they were traded for other things like guitars.
I tend to gravitate back to the 17 for whatever reason.

That's sort of why I have most of my guns. I only shoot a few of them and some have never been fired. I've already given some away. I have kids and grandkids that I want to have them someday. Need enough to go around!

A fictitious entity using my name may have had a total of about two dozen Ruger Blackhawks, mostly chambered in .45 Colt. The only reason for owning any other centerfire handgun is in case the hippies go berserk.

I don’t do duplicates.

The only thing close to dupilicates is me collecting model 10 derivatives. I have 2”, 3”, 4”, round butt, square butt, SS, blues, fixed sight, adjustable sight, heavy barrel, tapered barrel etc….

They are all different variations of the same basic gun, but all unique also.

I guess the other exception is 870 shotguns. I have several but all are setup differently. Bird hunting/clays, Home Defense, patrol shotgun, slug gun for deer hunting

Yep! 😂
I've never bought any of the PC handguns, though. I tend to stick to the plain vanilla models of everything!

I don't have a gun safe, and I just store them (unloaded of course) in their boxes here and there among other stuff. A thief would have to work hard to find all of them. I have a duplicate of my Shield 9 2.0 that I was going to give this granddaughter, because she is very petite and liked shooting mine, but I can't find it! :rolleyes: I know it's here somewhere; I found the empty box so it and the magazines are probably in a range bag stuck somewhere. She's getting her carry permit this week so I gave up searching for it and bought yet another Shield Plus. The store didn't have a 2.0, but they are almost exactly the same size anyway. (Fully loaded, all that 147 gr ammo makes it heavier, though.) I'm sure it will turn up sooner or later. (I was two days too early to get the current rebate, doggone it.)

My kids say when I kick the bucket it will be like an Easter egg hunt going through my stuff. I sometimes stash jewelry in odd places, too. I imagine they'll be doing a little cussing, LOL. I need to work on that. They've threatened to buy me a gun safe but I don't have a good place for one.



Some of you have more duplicates of a pistol than I have pistols!

You probably wouldn't even notice one missing.

You may want to remember that as Father's Day, and my birthday, and Christmas come around. I write very nice thank you letters. ;)

:ROFLMAO:
That wouldn't be me but I have a few.

Awhile back someone here asked me if I would adopt them, LOL.

You sound like an awesome family member. Oh oh, missing 2.0 aye?

I hear you on the PC versions. I'd love one, but when it comes down to it I often can't justify an extra $200 in many cases.

I am kicking myself on not pulling the trigger on a Smith PC Model 60 revolver that was a fair price. Almost almost put it on layaway, waited a few weeks, and it was gone :(

There was a time when I had a few full size government model 1911s. It's was kind of getting stupid, especially with smaller ones too.

The two PC Shield Plus models I have come with a better trigger. They both break at 3.25-3.5 pounds. I think it is worth it. Plus, I love those fiber optic sights
I imagine they are. However, in the case of the Plus, the normal model already has a superior trigger to most stock striker fired guns. It's already pretty good. Where I think a real difference would be is with let's say a 1.0 or 2.0 Shield versus either a PC or Apex trigger.

Currently have 3 G19s. One is issued to me, I call it mine cause I will keep it when I retire. I have one I bought new, the 3rd I ran across a deal I couldn't pass on at a pawn shop. Issued is Gen 5, other two are Gen 3.
