    Where do you carry your bug

    I carry my primary strong side IWB. My P3AT rides in the opposite front pocket, right next to my money clip.
    For those who pocket carry, do you carry strong side or weak side?

    My BUG (R9) is not that frequent as I am not out all that much. If on board tho it'll be usually be strong side pocket or occasionally in an ankle rig left leg.

    Other (sorta) BUG is the NAA Mini - and that is any place that suits on the day - might be vest pocket - lower or upper ..... or a pants pocket - durned thing will sit anywhere!

    I suppose I'm lucky--My dominant hand varies by activity. I'm generally left-handed, but shoot right. When I pocket carry, it goes in my right front pocket, most of my pocket crap is already in my left pocket.

    I carry my primary strong side IWB right side. I also shoot with both hands and it changes by mood and activity. My bug is usually in left front pocket/left IWB, smart carry.

    On most occasions my primary (S&W 1066) is OWB at 4 o'clock and the BUG is in the left front pocket with nothing but the holster. Occasionally I carry a SIG P239 IWB at 1:30/2. The BUG stays where it was. On Sunday when I go to church I carry only the BUG and it stays in the left front pocket. I have gotten very comfortable with it there and quite good at getting it out. I practice shooting it left handed both one handed and two handed. I still have trouble with two handed because muscle memory is to grip like I have the gun in the right hand. BUG is a Kel-Tec P32 in a K&D pocket defender.

    My P3AT resides in my strong side pocket.

    My bug isn't really a back up. It's more when I need deep concealment. P3AT strong side front pocket.

    I'm usually not into a BUG as I just prefer my Kimber Ultra, but for those times when I would take my P-3AT along, it's in a Fist kydex right front pocket holster...

    My BUG, either an XD9SC, Bersa Thunder .380cc or a Kahr PM9, resides in a galco ankle holster or a smartcarry, depending on my dress code that day and which pistol I wish to use as my BUG. My Springfield XD40 Service is my primary and is almost always IWB Strongside.

    I rarely carry two guns but when I do, the 642 serves as BUG. In that situation, the Mil-Spec is IWB at 3:30 and 642 is usually on the left ankle. Occasionally, I'll drop it in the RT front pocket but don't generally find it comfortable there if the 1911 is on the right hip.

    My BUG gets carried in the weak side pocket about 90% of the time. The other 10% of the time it's on my ankle.

    If my BUG becomes my "Primary" due to concealment concerns it then goes in the strog side pocket and my third gun, Kahr PM9, goes behind the weakside hip.

    I carry 2 guns at all times, with reloads for each. The third gun stays in the safe most days.

    If it's actually a backup, weak side front pocket or cargo pocket. If it's pressed into service as a primary on a garment-light day, then strong side front pocket.
