    I've thought about it..but have NOT carried a BUG on my body yet(I've had another in a backpack close..but NOT physically on me). Interested to hear what,how and why. Thanks guys!
    I carry a Glock 36 primary and a Kel Tec P3AT as a BUG.

    There are times and places that I can not carry the Glock 36 and the Kel Tec P3AT becomes my primary.

    I have done this a time or two with a Glock 36 and a 21. At work I always have the 31 at the counter and the 36 on my belt so I guess I do.

    Always carry a knife-they are handy to have
    Always carry a reload-You probably won't need it but it is good insurance .

    I'm a retired LEO so maybe that's why I do it.

    I carry the LCP as a backup rather than a second magazine for my Kahrs. I don't train that frequently for reloading under stress, so it provides an alternative to screwing up inserting the second magazine under pressure.

When I hit the streets in the morning, I am on my own.....no radio for backup, no cruisers ready to come to my aid, no army of SWAT ready to save my butt......just me, my Glock and little pocket 9mm and my own commons sense and self awarenesss.

    Hey, Lets be careful out there!!

    Just curious..street cops probably carry a 2nd gun,because of the proactive nature of their work. They're looking for trouble so to speak. Civilians are not. Anyway, glad to see that your entrusting your safety to nobody but yourself...my kind of American!

    Up until this past March this year I only carried a backup about 10% of the time at best. Now I carry a Smith & Wesson 380 in my front left pocket about 98% of the time. I have two mags for my primary Glock 23 and the BUG.

    Why the change? I was running a failure drill in a class, was going through the regular routine after getting a "click" of getting behind cover, tap, rack but the slide didn't move and it was about 1/2 way back. It didn't appear to be a double feed but I quickly stripped the mag and stored it, firmly racked the slide and as I let the slide go it never stopped until it hit the ground (slide lock spring broke). So I'm standing there holding just the frame and no backup gun. Right away, I thought I needed my BUG but didn't have it with me and how screwed I would have been had this been a real life and death situation.

    One of the many reasons I love getting good training. You run your gun hard to see you and your equipments failure point. Find out what adjustments you need to make so you are prepared the best you can. Plan and prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

    And THAT ^ is why. Excellent post, sir.

    When I retired, my plan was no more toting around a big service-type pistol... a J frame and a Speed Strip was all I needed. The soaring crime rate here, caused by Katrina dumping much of New Orlean's trash in our laps, changed my mind about that... and rather quickly, too. It was back to Plan A... a service pistol and BUG. Not fun... but comforting.

    There were 2 times in my career where I carried a backup but I haven't in a long time. I remember an articlewritten years ago by Ayoob that mentions how us cops would take off out Sam Brown and hang it up in the locker along with the 40 rounds and strap on a 6 shooter.

    However to answer the question...I don't carry 2 guns. I don't feel the need to do so.
