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.

Although the same "model", there are many versions/manufacturers of the 1911 and BHP that can be collected and appreciated.

I tend to accumulate multiple examples of guns/models that I like. Late war Walther P38s, Belgian FALs and Valmets come to mind.

I am not a fan of the DAO D model. :p
I wasn't until I tried it. The DA trigger is smooth as butter and you can control it all the way forward and backwards before the break. It's much easier than the regular double-action. Easier , smoother and lighter . And the "lever free" slide is nice to look at from the side and rear. From the rear it makes the gun look so thin.

There have been a few guns that I’ve owned multiples of. There was a time I had four of almost every Steyr 40 A1, the exception was the C40-A1. I own three 3“ Colt King Cobras. I have three Canik P-120s. At one time I had five HS 2000s (pre-divorce). So yeah if I like something I get multiples of it. If I carry it I’ll at least own two of it.

When I was younger I was always trading for the next latest and greatest shiny thing. For some reason some kind of 1911s (5) and Ruger GP 100s (4) somehow always found their way back to me.

870s, Smith 19s, Glock 17s and ARs…… I’ve had double digits of those but never at same time. Usually a good deal from individuals or pawn shops and then someone would offer more or I’d trade for something else.
