    No bug here. Spare primary mag ALWAYS.
    Although I find myself slipping the P32 into the back pocket when nothing else seems to work and I am in a hurry. It might make sense to use it that way as a BUG.

    Mardet65, thanks for your service.

    Heck, I didn't even carry a BUG when I was a LEO. Just because I have a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, doesn't mean I have a fire truck in the driveway.

    NO. Keys, cell phone, wallet, knife & primary gun. If I put anyting else in my pockets or on my belt my pants will fall down.

    I voted one BUG, but now that I have a Ruger LCP that is tiny, I often have it as a 3rd gun.

    I didn't vote in the poll for two reasons.

    One, I am a LEO. The second is because the number of BUGs I carry depends upon what I carry as a primary handgun off duty. On Duty I can only carry what they issue me, and BUGs are not authorized.

    If I carry a revolver off duty, as a primary, I carry three of them. If I'm packing an autoloader as an off duty primary I carry at least one BUG, most often a J-Frame.

    Back up mags are a stellar idea. The only way I'd consider a BUG is if it carried interchangeable mags with my primary EDC. (G23/27 XD 9serivce/XD 9 SC etc etc)

    Always at least one.

    On rare ocassions and for specific circumstances, two.

    Because
    1. Murphy knows where I live
    2. Bad guys run in packs
    3. I am the only one in my household who is armed in public
    4. I ain't got no bodyguards following me around
    5. Either I get it done, or it don't get done

    Have not entertained the thought of a BUG. If I did, the only one small enough for a back up would be the Titan .25acp. not exactly the kind you would want to rely on, but in a pinch better than absolutely nothing.

    Like other replies, I carry a spare mag or speed loader, depending on the firearm I chose to carry that day. Usually the S&W 9mm or the Rossi .38spl revolver.

    I've carried a BUG only once. And that was just to give it a try.

    I always carry a spare mag for my Glock 26.

    Of course if I owned either an LCP or Keltec P3AT I would carry that as a BUG. Either one of these is next on the gotta have list.

    I voted no; mostly cause no money therfore no bug. I would carry one on occation if I had one I could pocket carry --- if any of you are looking for a good home for one of you bug size guns I am more than will to do the additional feed and care for one more gun; my wife on the other hand may not be of the same opinion!!
