    A 1911 IWB right side, and my new little Ruger LCP in my back left pocket in this wonderful holster. I deliberately ordered a left-handed model in case my right hand is occupied or injured.

    I carry one revolver and a speed strip. I avoid crazy places and try not to do crazy things.

    I ended up giving up my BUG to my dad when he got his permit card. I'm in the market for another.

    Yup it's not even hard to imagine how a CCW can fail...


    One simple scenario to consider (out of several)... BG walks up to target and asks for the time or directions as a form of distraction, then he says "give me de money" while pulling out a gun or knife... you wrestle with him while drawing your own weapon, WHAT IF the BG holds your semi auto by the slide (or slide touches him or clothing) and you fire?

    Guess what, malfunction
    ... what are you going to do now? Clear a jam while you're wrestling with the gun/knife wielder to save your skin?
    this does not reside in the twilight zone.

    I carry two guns off duty, soon to be three.

    I've had the need of a BUG when my Primary Arm was busy deflecting a blade, and that was off duty. The third gun is for when I'm sitting at a desk, or in the truck, as it's the quickest and easiest to draw. I have also armed a friend who stupidly didn't think to bring one of his weapons.

    I just carry one on my strong side, IWB, plus two spare mags on my weak side.

    A BUG is not just backup if your primary malfunctions or runs out of ammo, but backup for your primary if your primary is harder to bring into action.

    Just one either IWB or pocket. I am one of the few that carry what you refer to as a BUG as a primary. I will say I am looking at something larger for cooler weather.

    Under normal circumstances I only carry my primary gun (with spare mag and my knife). There have been a few times when I've also added a second gun, usually a .38spl in my pocket or ankle holster.

    Times when we're under tornado warnings are frequent here in the Spring and being in an apartment, evacuation is sometimes a possibility. That's the most common reason I'll carry a BUG.

    I frequently carry two guns; a mid sized semi-auto and a j-frame. My mode of dress dictates how I choose to carry them as much as anything else. The semi-auto is almost always found strong side, either OWB or IWB. The j-frame's lcoation varies per my mode of dress, found either AIWB, on my ankle, or in a coat pocket when it is very cold.

    I confess, I don't usually carry a BUG.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Well, I don't get to carry here in Kalifornia. When I visit my brother in Nevada, it's an M&P full or compact 9mm and a Charter Arms Undercover Southpaw (I am a lefty.). Oh, and I carry one extra magazine and one speedloader.

    I wonder if there are any statistics regarding a CHL holder needing a BUG? I am not referring to an off duty cop who has some degree of responsibility to intervene in the commission of a crime. A CHL holder does not have that responsibility.
    But does anyone know of a case where the CHL holder needed a BUG? Or even an extra magazine?

    Thanks,
    Jerry
