I actually take three pistols to practice, or two pistols and a rifle.
My STI Limited gun or my Steyr Production gun, the associated backups, and a 22 rifle or pistol.
After practice, I play with the 22's. I really think ending a practice session on a fun note is good for the mental game. Knowing that practice is fun makes me want to do it again. Dwelling on how bad I sucked, coulda… shoulda…. Woulda….. blows my next match.
When I go shooting, I only bring 2 pistols with me at a time...my 22lr revolver goes everytime and then either one of my 9's or 45's. I go through a certain established practice routine and having multiple calibers and trigger pulls doesn't lend itself to a good practice session for me.
6 pistols, a 22 high standard, 380 beretta, 44 Mag super redhawk, colt, baer, and kimber 45's, Rem. 243 rifle, 50 cal muzzleloader, and sometimes my beretta over under if I feel like getting out the clay target thrower. Thats enough fun for one day! I do this in my backyard (also known as a 300 acre field :lol: )
