I usually refer to my Glock 19 in my IWB holster as my primary carry and my Ruger LCR in my pocket as my backup. Last night I was in a gas station late at night and when a somewhat rough looking man walked in, my hand slipped into my pocket onto the handle of my LCR. The man just paid for his gas and left, and I paid for my things and left as well and realized, if the worst case had went down, my 5 shot LCR would have been my primary, and only if I needed more rounds would I have gone to my backup 19.
I guess it depends on the situation, if I had time to draw properly I would go for my 19 first, but if anticipating something is "not right", I can slip my hand into my pocket and get a shooting grip on my LCR. I guess I just feel guilty for labeling my LCR as my backup when there are many situations in which it would be my primary defense weapon.
Not really a discussion topic as much as an observation.
What do others carry as primary/backup?
