Like I said old ? old topic.
How many that carry a gun think you should or it is or is not necessary to carry a bug?
Or is your primary all you need to feel warm and fussy?

One is plenty for me, but it depends on your guns reliability. I'm comfortable carrying my little .380, sometimes a full size 9mm isn't the most comfortable. In a real situation you will rarely have time to get your bug out anyways if you do have any malfunctions with your primary. Seems like a lot of extra weight that would slow you down instead of helping you. I know a lot of people do carry a bug sometimes tho. Depends what you're comfortable with.

But I have a BUK, a BUM and a plan.
Yoda, I am, yes.
I usually carry one gun with me unless I know I have to travel through crime ridden
territory to get to where I am going. In that case, I'll put another gun in the center
console in the car or truck just in case I'm on the spot and I feel I can't reach my
primary gun quickly enough. So far, thankfully, I haven't needed to draw my firearm.

I know of no reason not to carry a bug. Otoh, there are several which quickly come to mind in favor of carrying one.
Never carried more than one at a time and have managed to stay above ground for quite awhile now.

Not necessary at this time, sw j frame in front pocket. However, life changes on us rather quickly. I can envision situations where a bug could be advantageous in the future.

Every one of us has different variables in our lives. Those variables dictate what each of us, as individuals, do or do not carry.
I carry one, now. At another time and place in my life, I did not. As Mike1956 said already, I can't think of any reason NOT to carry one.
*WARNING - I may or may not know what I am talking about.
I carry one sometimes. I always have at least one with a spare mag. Depending on what pants I'm wearing, I'll bring the LCP along for the ride.
