How many of you here own more than one Five Seven? I usually like to have two of my favorite gun. Currently I do not have 2 of any one gun.

I have similar models of the same gun. For example I have a Glock 17 and 19, both in FDE. I have several 2.5" S&W L Frames. Same gun but with a steel frame (686) and a scandium frame (386). And many similar ARs. But not 2 exact same guns.

The last gun I had 2 exact same ones was a S&W 386 Night Guard. But I sold one recently. I actually traded it plus $200 for my Five Seven.

I have a black Five Seven for just over a month that has become my daily carry and I am thinking of getting a FDE one.

I have more than one,less than 4
:)
different generations and models. I put a red-dot (Burris) on one...it was hard install for gunsmith, but they finally got it right. 20/20 hindsight, I'm not sure I'd do that again. but I DO wish I could get Trijicon HD Night sights for at least one of them, as it eliminates it as a carry gun at night and/or a self-defense go-to gun at home in evenings....

I do have an FDE one, and it's become my favorite.

As far as home defense goes, a tactical light eliminates the need for night sights for me.

I don't have a good camera, but will work on getting some next weekend using the wife's camera. I have a semi-smart phone only
:)
as for tactical light, I have that too, but would still prefer night sights to go with it. and that makes it bulkier to carry at night on hip as requires the larger holster (which I have) to accomodate light

Guess I need to get one of those holsters that attaches to my pajama bottoms. I knew I was missing something!

I also now belong to the more than one Five Seven club as well. I just purchased a FDE model on GB.

I got my first one on a trade and did very well on it. This one hurt at $1,225 delivered!

Negative. A light doesn't eliminate night sights. Light illuminates target. If you can't see the sights you don't take the shot. Whether you can see the target doesnt matter. Where is the round going to go as you can't see the sights? Night sights and on gun light.

I understand this, however, when my light is illuminated I can see my sights as though it is day and have a perfect sight picture. Without the light on, I cannot see the sights. If I am going to be in a situation where I would potentially have to fire without the light on, it is not the right gun for the situation.

I have a USG and a FDE MKII. But my wife adopted the USG, so not sure if this counts?

Would love to own two. I do however have some duplicates of some faves. Two g19s, two sig 220s and of course two 10/22s.

If you actually mean to fight with it and it's where you spend your ammunition training budget you should own as many of them as you can afford.

I used to own 3 BHPs, 1 FEG clone and 1 Argy clone when I ran Hipowers as a primary CCW(now I only keep 2 BHPs one Belga and one Port) and now that I run Glocks I keep 3 G17s, 1 G19 and 2 AA 22lr conversions on G17 frames.

"Two is One and One is None"

If top of the line 5.7x28 ammo was available cheaply by the case online or at least by the box at the local Walmart I'd probably own 2 of them right now but I have rules about ammo procurement and availability that prevent me from using calibers I can't feed at least 10,000rds per year into consistently.

10mm and 5.7x28mm have become like highschool crushes remembered fondly but neatly shelved in that part of my mind where all impractical desires must go eventually.

I do happen to have a 16 year old daughter that is raving about PS90 SBRs every time we go out to shoot or see a P90 in a movie and if she keeps on that train of thought things might change and I'll have to go into full production learning how to reload those tricky little suckers just to feed her new huggy bear and then I might end up with a new USG myself which will eventually become 2 USGs given my usual habits.
