    How do you carry your BUG?

    For those of you that carry a BUG where do you carry it? I am in the long Texas wait for my license and want to get everything sorted out before it gets here. I hope to have it by Christmas. Maybe I can use that as an excuse to by a new gun. I was thinking about carrying a 1911 or my P220ST as my primary and a glock 30sf or maybe an XD as a backup. It going to take some "around the house" carry to see if I can comfortably conceal a large pistol. I should be receiving my MTAC for the P220 today.

    Welcome to the world of DC, and I'm sure your going to get allot of response

    My Bug, so to speak during the summer months, I carry a P3AT 380 in a nemesis holster.

    If I'm warring shorts, it fits in the front pocket and jeans it fits in the back pocket.

    When it's cooler I carry a G26 OWB and cover it with a light wind breaker

    Never carry two pistols at a time; kind of figure one should get the job done.

    PPS in front weakside pocket holster.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Rarely carried as a BUG, but when I do it is a Seecamp in a R J Hedley front pocket holster. This is a very good combination that I like very much. I've tried several others, but this one is for keeps. I can draw it just as fast as my main CCW.

    I carry one "Primary Gun" and two BUGs most days.

    My Primary is a 3" GP100 or a Glock 19 and infrequently a 5" 1911. The BUGs are a SP101 carried OWB for a weakhand draw and a 442 in my Pocket or on my ankle, depending upon dress.

    I am a big advocate of having a gun accessable to either hand, and have had to draw my BUG once in a knife attack. I really like weakside pocket carry for a BUG, this is where the 442 resides most days, unless I'm wearing a suit.

    Just my preference, but I like "point and shoot" type weapons for BUGs and Primary guns, and like the Revolver most of all for the dependability. In full size guns it's a wash as far as if an Autoloader is as dependable as a Revolver. However, when you get to the smaller guns, the Revolver still retains a slight edge in reliability.

    The 1911 and a 38 Special J-Frame would be a good combo, and one I carried for a few years. In fact it was what I was carrying the night I had to draw my BUG. Now I'm back to packing a wheelie off duty most days, or a Glock, as I like "point and shoot" type weapons for most purposes.

    BUG in strong-hand pocket. If I'm in a questionable area, I can keep my hand in my pocket with the BUG firmly in hand. I practice draw-and-acquire around the house or if I'm alone out walking the dog in the woods. I can draw very quickly this way.

    My BUG is a AMT .45 which has no sights that might hang up on edge of pocket.

    My primary is a 5 inch 1911, my GUG is a Colt Defender. I carry the defender in a holster in the left had pocket of my vest. If I feel unsafe I can stick my hands in the pockets and have a 45 ready to go if need be.

    How do you carry your BUG?

    Rarely.
    Primary is 1911 or CZ-75/9mm (Pre-B, old-timer) carried IWB (usually) or OWB (occasionally) strong-side, 4O'clock-ish.
    Back-up:
    The "Other One" - between the seats/in the console.
    Colt Mustang +2 - ankle.
    P32 - IWB with side clip.
    PF-9 - AIWB, nearly centered, or (suit) coat pocket, weak-side.
    .32 Revolver - pocket (suit mostly)
    NAA Mini - My wife's, not mine, I promise.

    Mostly it just depends on what fits the holster that works best with the clothes at the time, but I generally only carry a BUG when I'm travelling so I can leave one with my family if the vehicle fails or we get stuck in some place of "dubious integrity." Otherwise I'm more comfortable with fewer options to reduce the potential of confusion if "TSHTF," and I don't own - much less carry - anything that hasn't proven itself as much 100% as mechanically possible.

    Stay safe,

    Chuck Brick.
    Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
    Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!
