"Beware of the man who only owns one gun, he probably knows how to use it."
The problem I had with shooting one gun almost exclusively was not that my practial accuracy with other's suffered, it was that the manipulation for things like reloading started to get hardwired. I remember shoving on the triggerguard of my Kimber to drop the mag, since I'd been shooting a Walther P99 alot and thinking "This would be really embarassing under certain circumstances."
The single gun isn't the only thing.
My son mentioned that he wanted to make sure that he never changed the way he drew a pistol. We use the same holster for all occasions. A Galco Royal Guard "In the Waistband".
I talked to one guy last week and he mentioned that he uses a shoulder holster, an ankle hoster and a differnt style of holster that he uses under a shirt.

LOL....Understand that well. Back before I knew better I decided that I had to have an HK P7M13. I had been issued a P9S in 45ACP and thought I needed at least 2 HK's in my paperweight collection aka Gun Safe.
One thing I could never master was the weird squeeze cocking action. Lot's of embarrassing technical pauses in the shoot house per se. Albeit the P9S is an outstanding handgun and shoots very well the P7M13 is now an investment gun.
Stay Safe !!
