How many are enough?

Post by BryanGA on Tue Feb 21, 2012 8:28 pm

I know you can shoot 2700 with two guns but whats the fun in that? How may bullseye guns do you have. I have not even shot my first match and I am thinking about how many different bullseye guns I can justify.
Right now Smith 41 and Ruger MKII back up. I am shopping for a 1911. Of course I will need a wad gun and a hardball gun. Oh and a Mid-range, maybe a sub caliber 1911 or a 52 or possibly a revolver. hmmmmmm.

Ah yes, the backups. What a wonderful excuse to own more firearms.

I have backups for my backups.

When I was competing regularly and took in big matches, I used to have back-up guns. I tried to duplicate the primary gun as closely as possible. I only used the back-up guns a few times, when I sent the primary off for work. It was a comforting feeling to step on the line at Perry and have a twin in the gun box, ready to be pressed into service.
