I've noticed that some members have 2 of the same gun (like 2 M&P 40's). What is the reason behind that for you who do? For me, I've been wanting a pair of like guns simply because I always thought it would be kind of neat. Silly reason, I know. But I'm curious if anyone else thinks the same way, or has other reason(s) for it. Thanks.

One reason. I like a back up.



Reason 2. I like to have my carry gun the way I like it. If I shoot IDPA or something, they don't like my gun(go figure its a carry gun) I have my backup I use for target and IDPA/IPSC.



Not to hijack, but its stupid for IDPA to put restrictions on pistols, when the mods make it better for carry.



I'll have a compact later.



I stick with the 40 S&W because I reload for it only, and have alot of rounds bulked up. Keep it simple stupid(KISS)

1. I like a backup. If one goes in for repair, I still have one to use I feel comfortable with



2. I am married, and my wife shoots too, and tends to take mine if she does not have one of her own.



:oops:

Don't have two of the same M&Ps yet, but like the others I would like a backup. Having the same gun as a backup allows you to keep the same holster or mag pouches and muscle memory as well.

Backup!!



If I'm at an IPSC or IDPA Match and my Primary gun takes a Poop, I have an identical gun that I can finish the match with!!



USPSA/IPSC Rules state that if I change guns, it must not give me a competitive Advantage!! So... Get an identical gun!!



My problem now is that my primary has been worked on by Dan Burwell!! It's sooooo sweet!!!



I must send my backup for the Dan treatment!! A sweet Trigger job and a Speed Shooters Specialties FO Front Sight!! I alsready have a First Generation Burwell rear Sight on both of my M&P's.
