    what's your backup gun?

    I just bought a north american arms in 22 mag. It now my back up gun. I carry it with my shield in 9mm or my .38 as a bug. Never thought I'd carry a bug. What do you guys think about this weapon as a bug? What do you guys have for bugs?

    I have a couple of 22mag NAA .. They are last ditch guns for sure only get a few shoots and single action .. But they work and are good guns for what they are .. I like the PUG model or if I could find a sidewinder that can reload faster ..

    Single action guns like that are for me a BUG BUG gun .. Last ditch or no other choice only ..

    I do like these guns for BUGS 5cbf1e1a5692fa82bb510a033498fe3c.jpg two shots but double action and very compact .. Old school BUG gun lot of cops I hear carried these way back when .
    My other last ditch gun is this

    Single action can be fired fast ..yeah only 25 but I am pretty sure at the range I will be using it I will just shove it up the preps nose and empty



    But really around here I normal dont carry a BUG gun small town not much need ..plus I have guns in the car if it goes all red dawn on me ...

    I think a LCP or p3at would be a good bug gun as well .. Small no controls to mess with just pull and fire



    When I carry BUG I think that this could be a stress pull gun ie perps attacking you etc so less fumble and ease to pull the better to me

    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    No bug for me.
    I have no present interest in carrying two pistols and no training in the retention of two pistols,until that changes I am a one gun slinger.

    If I need to carry a back-up gun then I also need to reconsider going wherever it is I'm going because it sounds like I should stay home that day!

    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
