Owning more than 1 of the same pistol

I wanted to buy his and hers Sig P938s for the wife and I. I found a good deal on the one I wanted on GB yesterday and bought it. She thinks that owning two of the same is silly. We have had this "discussion" more than once. I like the idea of having the ability to share magazines, accesories etc. She would prefer to spend the money on a different gun since we share.

I am curious to hear other opinions on owning more than one pistol of the same caliber pistol .

It depends. If I see a cheap milsurp, I might pick up a couple. Or, as in the case of Kimbers, I might, over the years, get some different styles of the same gun. for instance, I have a couple of Custom II's that are different colors that I have picked up over the years. Or maybe I'll get a handgun to customize and one to keep stock.

I think it also depends on how many guns you have.

And most importantly, buy her what she wants and likes. I would never presume to tell my wife what un she should use- I'd be a dead man.

If owning multiple handguns in the same caliber is a problem then all I have to say is "Hi, my name is Chuck and I have a serious problem."

I don't own two of the exact same guns, but I do have a Glock 19 and 26, and a S&W 65 4" and a 65 3". Does that count?

Gmountain my problem is that I bought the one I prefer and she decided it should be hers. I'll have to keep my eyes out for a 2nd one at a good deal. My biggest issue is finding another as the ones she liked are much more common than the one I prefer. Luckily she won't really be upset if I do she just will think I'm "dumb"!
