    Who Regularly Carries More Than One? / Do You Carry a BUG? (MERGED)

    I do, and everyone thinks Im nuts. Even some of my friends who carry (all 2 of them) think its overkill.
    I say I carry two for the same reason I carry one.
    Just in case.
    Glock 26 on the hip, and Smith 340pd on the inside of the left ankle (right hand draw).

    I guess ''regularly'' is a variable ..... but more times than not apart from EDC 226 - I have my NAA .22mag mini in one or another pocket.

    It is of course a minimalist BUG but - it's still something to fall back on.

    The ultimate is maybe the guy who carries two of same - and thus all ready for the famous ''New York Reload'' if need be

    I very seldom carry one gun off duty. Here's a rundown on what I frequently carry. I may carry something different every now and then, but these are the most common for me when I'm on my "own time".

    S&W 22-4 and 442
    Ruger GP100 and 442
    Glock 19 and 442
    Glock 19 and Kahr PM9


    I also carry reloads for each gun carried. My favorite combo is the Ruger and the 442 followed by the Glock and the 442. I like having a gun accessable to either hand because I never know which hand I will have free to draw with.

    Two

    I carry two. I carry a backup on my ankle. The backup is a 40 s&w. My main carry is either a 40 or 45 in a shoulder holster. If something happens to your main carry you are good to go. My backup has night sights. Its the only way to go.

    I wish I could carry two, the whole lack of a second gun kind of gets in the way. My CZ RAMI is awesome don't get me wrong, though I have been contemplating getting a CZ 75B Compact .40 as primary and bumping the RAMI over to the left side. Something to look forward to :)

    More often than not. Not much hassle and there are plenty of good reasons to do so.

    On duty I always have two, a G23 on my duty belt and a 640 in a vest holster. Off duty I usually just carry one with a reload. Sometimes I'll carry two depending on where I need to go.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I always carry two.

    The primary is for the mall shooting or when you have more time to draw.
    The bug is for "get the beep off me" in a pocket holster for weak hand. When walking to the car or in downtown Minneapolis because a gun in your hand when you need it is better than one you have to sweep a carry garment and draw. IMHO

    Combo for me are. Note: All are "DAO" with no safeties

    M&P 40compact and P3AT or M60
    Kel-tec P11/PF9 and P3AT or M60

    Back when I worked for the Feds and had to go to meetings with BGís, I would carry the NAA 22 in my back pocket, along with the G19 on the hip. And back in the 70ís when I worked for the Sheriffs department; we always kept a 12-GA riot shotgun even in our own vehicle.

    But, today as a private citizen, with CCL I never do. Just donít see a reason. If I think an area is that dangerous I donít go there.

    On extended outings, or to riskier areas, or outside of town, I certainly do. It isn't every day or every week, even, but it's regular enough to matter. Most of us go armed with a firearm and knife already. Some, with two firearms. Crazy nuts? Not if the original motivation to be armed holds any water.

    Living in probably one of the safest places in the country I feel one is plenty. The odds of ever needing it are high. The odds of needing a bug are astronomical. I mostly carry because it's my right to do so. Also chances are if it's needed there's going to be other guns close. This is a large gun population state with many people carrying and most know how to use them very well. Not a lot of here
