    Yes... Back-Up is XD9sc or SP-101 with 1 or 2 reloads for BUG

    plus a Benchmade pocket folder a tactical flashlight that can double as a Kubotan and frequently, but not always OC spray.

    Sometimes, yes. Sometimes my BU is my DW with her Glock 26 too.

    That's in additional to the cell, folder, Leatherman, etc.

    Somtimes I use my Keltec P3at as my primary, and sometimes as my backup. If it's my backup, I carry a .40 or .45.

    A simple search will turn up lots of posts as to whether folks feel the need to carry a BUG. I don't consider my Guardian a BUG but as a secondary gun, it can become primary even with my G23 on my hip given the proper situation.

    I said no, because I rarely do...just extra mags...

    On the 'rare' occasion that I have, it is my P-3AT.

    Once you take the time to "Dress Around The Gun" I find it's not that hard to carry two and sometimes three guns.

    I always carry a second gun, accessable to the support hand, along with reloads for both guns when I am Off-Duty. Today was one of the rare and very infrequent days that I actually carried my Glock 19 as my CCW. I had my 442 in my support side pocket as usual.

    I carry my NAA mini in .22 mag as backup to my 23 sometimes. I carry it at work always because I can't have a gun at work.

    I always try to carry it as a backup when hiking for snakes.
