    I frequently carry a Walther PPK/S as a BUG in an ankle holster. When I do, I'll carry an extra magazine for it in my weak-side front slacks pocket.

    This is my P3AT in a 2n"1 by K&D holsters. Fits in a side or back pocket of my jeans quite well. Note that the extra mag you asked about is part of the holster structure. Recommend it highly.

    Back when I carried my Kel Tec P3AT or Kahr PM9 as second guns, I'd carry a spare; in the case of the Kahr, my primary gun was a Kahr P9 Covert, so I'd carry two magazines (the use the same mags) in a double mag pouch. If I carried another gun, I'd carry the Kahr 9mm mag (or a P3AT) pouch in one of those little "change pockets" most pants have.

    That set up looks ideal Dairycreek. You have a nice hideout rig there, where did you get it and who makes it?

    Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. The extra mag for the bug goes into an opposite side pocket to help even out the weight. Helps with coat pocket carry of my P32.

    I carry the PT-145 as a BUG to my 1911's and if for no other reason, I carry a spare mag in the weak side pocket to counter balance the load. I also carry the same gun as a primary carry when the 1911's are not appropriate and then carry two spare magazines weak side.

    Got the holster from K & D Holsters. Here's their URL. Great outfit with which to deal.

    I have the same carry combo you do. My P3AT is in my right front pocket in a pocket holster. My extra mag is in a left-side pocket (usually a cargo pocket). I also carry an extra mag for the Kimber, in a pouch on my left side.

    Being right-handed, I want the extra mags accessible to my off-hand, so that if I have to execute a reload, I don't have to switch the pistol from my strong hand.
    Cheers,

    It seems like alot to carry in my left front pocket ( keys,knife, wallet and extra mag) I need to see if a can get a holster maker to make me a double mag hold with one for the kimber and one for the 3pat. Or start carring my wallet in my back pocket.

    Thank you guys for your input.

    I know what you mean about all the stuff we end up carrying around.

    I really like the 5.11 Tactical Pants. They have an integral mag pocket, as well as cargo pockets. They're quite comfortable and fit right in with a business casual wardrobe. Makes it possible to spread things around more.
    Cheers,

    I have a quick, off-topic question for you, dairycreek. Do you have any problems finding pants whose back pockets fit that rig? I've been looking at a P3-AT as a BUG, and I carry my wallet in my side pocket so I'd put that in the back, but from the measurements on their web site it seems too large for most of my pants (I generally wear khakis/slacks). Is that not the case, or do you just have to find a brand with larger back pockets?

    I am retired so what I wear is pretty much up to me. I am a large guy at 6'3" and 274 pounds and tend to wear loose fit jeans. The K&D holster/P3AT combo fits in either the back pocket or the side pocket on all my jeans. I do have some khaki slacks (once again they are loose fit Dockers) and the holster combo fits in those too with no problem.

    Can't say anything about the fit of the holster in other styles of trousers as I just don't have any. Hope this helps some.

    I usually don't carry a BUG, much less an extra mag for it, but that setup you posted dairycreek has me taking a second look. Easy & simple, yeah, that is a nice setup!
