    Just curious as to why do some people get two of the same model glocks? Example, a buddy of mine got two G17. I can see if one is compensated and the other is not, but come on, two of the exact same thing?

    Same ammo for me.

    G21 for winter carry, G30 for summer.

    You've never heard of the "spare" concept?
    I have five 17s.
    Even if I couldn't get parts or service, I can have a functional Glock 17 for the rest of my life as it sits now.
    Two or three can break down or wear out, I can lose one or two, I can have one confiscated by police should I ever have to use one in self defense, and so on.

    Why would two be hard to understand? :)

    One can be none. Two can be one.
    Or, one is none, two is one.

    Never hurts to have an alternative/option. Even better if that alternative/option matches the one that you just lost/broke.

    Because they have the means to. Because they can. Who cares what others do if it does no harm to the world, society, or yourself?

    My only double is two 19's, but I'd have three 19's, 17's, and 23's, if I had the $'s

    Why do people worry enough about what others do to make a thread about it? Why have I responded?!!
