    Carrying multiple guns? (BUG)

    I know a lot of people mention back-up guns (BUG) and carrying them along with their primary firearm. It seems like a completely sensible idea, but I was just curious on how you carry them.

    I suppose ankle, pocket, or even shoulder might come to mind. What's your BUG and how do you carry it?

    I carry a LCR 357 in my left font pocket to back up to my SP101. If I use the LCR for main carry a 442 is used as back up.

    I carry an LCR .38 spl in my front pocket to go along with my Glock19 I wear IWB. I also carry a fobus holster on my other hip with an additional 15 rd Glock mag as well as a Surefire 6PX Defender flashlight. (It is a paddle holster with a slot for the flashlight as well as the extra mag). I also carry a Smith and Wesson Black Ops 3 folding knife in my opposite front pocket to my LCR.

    I feel pretty safe when I leave the house :)

    My primary means of carrying is in my right front pocket. Occasionally when I carry OWB I still keep an LCR or LCP in my pocket.

    My advice is to stay away from ankle holsters.

    I carry either IWB, or a shoulder holster. I normaly carry a 5 shot J frame .38 revolver. If I feel the need for a second gun... It's usually going to be a larger gun with more BB's. So a larger revolver or full sized auto. I mostly carry the bigger gun OWB strong side... or sometimes a shoulder holster.


    a second hun?...lol naaaa it's cheaper to keep her...lol

    A second hun? Freudian slip?

    My wife is convinced I'm paranoid because I carry a pocket pistol. Carrying a bug would just add fuel to the fire. I've already lived and carried for a long time under the premise that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need one and not have it. Keeping my pants up is higher priority at this point than worrying about needing more than one gun.

    I've carried an S&W .38 bodyguard in an ankle holster as a BUG in the past. Eventually we got rid of it though, because didn't really like shooting it, and I hardly ever carried it. If I recall correctly, the only times I carried it were to a few family functions, a funeral or two, where I was extremely uneasy about some of the people who were there. I was never very comfortable carrying a revolver at the ankle.

    I carry my primary Bersa Thunder Pro UC 9mm at 3:00 IWB and my BUG Kahr p380 in my strong side front pocket. I am toying with the idea of moving my BUG to my weak side front pocket so that I will always be able to draw if my strong hand gets injured, but I want to get more range time with the Kahr before I make the move to that carry setup. It's darn hard to get .380 right now. In theory it ought to work well because I am cross dominant.
