By civilian, do you mean non-LE/Military?

My cc reads "concealed weapon or firearm license"; not plural. I believe it is worded that way on purpose, and wouldn't want to loose my priviledge because of a strict interpretation of the title.
i think it would be overkill

I do not, though I see the usefulness of a BUG in certain situations.
I have on rare occasions (no particular reason), put my P-3AT in a front pocket as an addition to my Kimber Ultra...

I can't fathom a situation in my daily doings where I would need anything more than a 5 shot j-frame to a 9 shot 1911.
Unlike cops who run towards bad guys, I doing everything within my power to avoid them.

Just once, when I had a guy come to the door at 0130 in a blizzard and he needed gas, so I took him to the gas station.

I do carry my P3AT in my weak side front pocket nearly 100% of the time I go out with my XD on the belt. A gun left at home does me no good if I can't reach my primary carry, and the Kel-Tec is just so tiny there is no good reason NOT to carry it.
Nope. But I do carry a Delica at all times.
No, unless I have to go near Dallas. Otherwise, I'll carry a 640-1 on my person - but there is always a Makarov and a Mini 14 in the truck.
In the winter I always do, due to the heavier winter coats, I actually pocket carry my Colt Mustang in my outer coat pocket as my primary while I usually have a 1911 in a shoulder holster as my backup, I figure I can get to the Mustang easier in that circumstance, and get couple of good shots in buying me time to seek cover and draw my other pistol.
