    I usually carry at least one back up gun, sometimes two. I also carry a nice big cold steel recon tanto.

    No.

    I'll carry a blade and an extra mag or two is all.

    I usually carry a Seecamp .32 in my weak side front pocket in a Desantis Nemesis.

    sometimes

    S&W 642 in a pocket holster when I'm going to an area I'm not familiar with or that I know to be potentially problematic.... but probably only 10% of the time

    In NM it is not legal to carry two guns concealed. However, I would not carry a BU anyway.

    I always carry a BUG on duty, but rarely off. Most times out and about there is at least one other firearm being carried by at least one other person.

    Depends on how you look at it. I don't normally expect to need any gun on any given day, and not being a cop I get to just avoid most situations. That kinda makes my primary gun my backup. I don't carry a 2nd gun.
