      Me?
      Two identical, slightly-modified, M1911s in .45 ACP.

      Well, now: Isn't that strange? That happens to be exactly what I do own.
      (Among other things, of course.)

      Why?
      One backs-up the other: Replacement gun, parts-gun, wife's "serious social encounter" pistol.
      Both guns use the exact same holsters.
      Both guns use the exact same magazines.
      Both guns use the exact same spare parts.
      Both guns use the exact same ammunition.

      +1 I like the way Steve thinks.

      Is the question only 2 pistols or 2 calibers?

      Glock 19 - availability of 9mm ammo, size, concealability, reliability, and after market parts plentiful.
      Ruger SB .44 magnum - do-all caliber, from target to big game, and able to be used at farily long range....150 yards or better.

      I'm taking this as 2 calibers.

      For survival it would be a 22 for food and I'd convert my Commander to 45Super for larger 4 legged protection,and just use standard 45s as usual.

      If I have a rifle for food,it would be my Beretta 92 for the abundance of ammo thanks to Nato.I would be hardpressed not to have one of the 1911s,but the USPf 45 might take it's place.

      What I have now would suffice. Ruger P89 three high cap mags. Ruger Vaquero 45 colt 7-1/2" SAA capable of firing 260 gr xtp @ 1100 FPS, accurate to 100 yds. Hit 4 in the 5 from fifty yards last week. I reload, have 1300 rds of 9mm & 600ish 45 colt.

      Have to like Steve's idea of 1911 x2 for all the reasons he gave. But since we're mostly talking about two different pistols one would be my Glock 19 and the other would be a Kimber 1911 just 'cause I want one.

      I'm basically already doing this with my two carry guns, even though I own more,

      Glock 30 .45 ACP and Smith & Wesson 642 .38 snubbie

      My choice would be

      Sig Sauer P220 in .45 cal.



      And a

      Sig Sauer P226 in 9mm



      Same size & battery of arms.

      High quality weapons.

      Glock 19 9mm - good caliber, high capacity, easy to shoot, carry and hide.

      Berretta 70 22LR - 22LR is a do-almost-anything caliber that can be used for anything from defense to hunting. The Model 70 is accurate enough for both tasks and compact enough to carry easily.

      Pair of third gen g19s

      Like said earlier--redundancy is the main reason (common parts, same mags, etc)

      But g19 because g17 mags also fit, as well as factory 33 round mags fit. If two of those mags won't get you out of a situation then something is deff wrong

      @ Charliefox

      Most folks don't know what a Beretta Mdl. 70 is

      I do ....



      I don't know if you've seen the short article - it's worth reading -

      Mossad used them.

      S&W 686- .357 magnum
      Ruger MKII- .22LR


      Reason? Getting food may end up as important as defense. Nothing I can't kill to eat with these two. Anything the .357 can't kill is too big to p*** off, much less try to eat! The Ruger MKII would probably end up being the most important gun to have.

      I concentrate on the two calibers of pistols that I carry, the 9x19mm and the .45 ACP. I don't consider any of the .22 LR's I have as a deliberate self defense choice. JMHO.
