I never carry a BUG
I never carry a BUG
I carry two 357mag snubs every day all day
Figured this thread would be appropriate for my question.
I carry a 45 as primary along with backup Mag. I carry a BUG on the ankle, sometimes with the backup mags as well.
Question is, does this make it more likely to be convicted of a crime if a self-defense situation were to occur? The "he was ready for a fight" perception always concerns me when carrying a BUG.

Why would coloring the primers cause them to fail?
Numerous reloaders 'seal' their ammo w clear nail polish, or something similar. Factory ammo is sealed.
What could you color them with that would effect function?
yah, I was hopin' someone would ask. So what's with the colored primers :) ?
I'm not sure that coloring them would cause them to fail, but all ammuniton manufacturers caution you against getting cleaning solvents and/or lubricants on primers. For that reason, I wouldn't take a chance.
There are a lot of smart guys on here (and some that just think they are :smile:) so I'm sure someone will clue us in.
Quick answer. No.
NAA .22 mag 1 5/8" barrel. Because my crystal ball is as cloudy as everyone else's. I can't even tell it's in a holster in my pocket so why not? Shoots well at a couple yards but it's more of a booger gun cuz if you get in a struggle with a perp, stick it in their nose and they'll reassess their poor decisions. If not, they get a brain smoothie. Helps if you're struggling with them for your primary or you're positioned so you can't get to it. I put a shotshell as my first round to give them one last chance before they'll force me to end them. The next 4 rounds are 40 grain hollowpoints. They're a lot meaner than you would think. However, they do look wimpy next to a .45 ACP.

SP-101 most of the time and some times a XDSC as the primary. S&W 642 as a bug.
I don't recall ever carrying two guns. I suppose maybe once or twice I may have but it's not something I normally do. There have been times over the years when I've considered it, and I certainly understand why some people do. It's certainly possible for a gun to break or fail, that's true. In my case it's sometimes a struggle just be sure I always have one gun, much less two. Right now if I was to carry two they'd both be service pistols due to that being pretty much all I have. But I do have a Beretta Nano on the way, and if it proves reliable I can see the possibility of using it to back up my BHP or HK USP. Maybe I would carry it in tandem with my Bersa BP9CC.
When these threads crop up they always make me think. Who knows, down the road I may wind up carrying a BUG more often.
