    I have a more recent manufactured Kel-Tec P32 and it's run fine for me. Appears the company may have solved the earlier problems. Trigger pull is long and terrible but it does go bang every time, and it's the only gun I have with me every moment. I forget that it's in my front pocket.
    Having said all this, I much prefer J-frames for a small gun.... but it's the Kel-Tec that ends up as my backup.

    After shooting several with no malfunctions, my BUG became the Taurus PT-145 Millennium Pro. 10+1 of my primary ammo, .45acp.
    Shoots to point of aim and does it through one ragged hole at 15yards. Goes bang every time I pull the trigger and the price is right. I can drop it into the front pocket of almost all the pants and shorts I wear and disappears. Spare mag in the opposite pocket.

    Don't have a BUG yet, I can't decide. It will be one of the options listed though.

    1) Sig Classic Personal P232

    2) Walther PPK or PPKS

    3) J frame airlite (for pocket)

    Ti.

    What do you think?

    IMHO, the BUG should not be in a caliber less than 9mm. Size of the gun is relative. Shrink the gun not the round. In your place, I think I'd opt for a KAHR mini 9mm. So, of the above group....I can only say that the J frame is adequate. I personally would go with a BOND ARMS stackbarrel derringer in the dual calibers of 45LC and 410 shotgun in the lower barrel. For me, BUG means literally in your face -- contact range. In fact under many circumstances at contact range I might prefer to use a good knife rather than a firearm.

    I carry my 38 snubbie on and off duty as my backup. One poster already mentioned this but you can (I have) fire it through your coat pocket until it is empty without jaming unlike your self-loader. Many a cold winter night I approached a stoped vehicle when things didn't seem right with my hand wraped around the boot grip in my jacket pocket and a smile on my face.

    I've tried a few different pocket guns as BUGs and have decided my favorite is my S&W 340PD loaded with 357mag 125gr Golden Sabres.
    During the day it's my backup and at night it's my pajama gun.

    I see carrying a bug a liability because in court the lawyer would probably mention that you had two pistols on you. I don't know. Plus this is just not keeping it simple enough for me.

    AMT .45 auto. Very small and its' lack of bulk beats the hell outta your hand, but it's an "Oh sh*t" gun, not a daily shooter.

    This issue is all about choice. I chose to carry three guns.

    Pray I am smart enough to never need any. If I do, I'll have to let the circumstances stand for what they are.
    Keep the shotgun handy!!

    KC135: I would like to hear how you holster or pocket 3 guns, if you have the time to respond. Thanks.

    Thanks to everyone who added to this thread. I investigated the various choices (Kahr, Rorbaugh, Kel-Tec, NAA, etc.) and decided I didn't want to go quite that small. That, plus my pro-Glock prejudice and experience, caused me to settle on the .40 caliber "subcompact" G27. I will need some range time to see if I can develop accuracy. I can experiment with it either as an alternative primary carry or as a back-up.
