    A BUG should be full-sized and carried in a shoulder holster.

    If clothing becomes an issue the easiest solution is to Open Carry. Then the problem goes away.

    If/when I do carry a BUG, it's either front pocket, or IWB/SOB.

    Well, when I was a kid the Glastonbury-Manchester area was nice tobacco farming rural and safe. I don't know what it is like today.

    I was sort of shocked by Willamantic last time I went through 8 years back. Going to New Haven or Bridgeport means BUG needed. Maybe a big can of OC if legal in CT.

    If I ever manage to find my way to my property in East Haddam again, I'd like to meet you. As I wrote earlier, the East Side of the river is my favorite place. I belong there like the rocks and the Maple trees and the Oaks.

    That set-up is sweet, BTW.

    Some great suggestions. I think it does depend on what you'll be doing AND what you'll be carrying.

    I tend to prefer a 5-shot revolver for ankle carry as they tend to get alot of crud that seems to get up in there. Because it carries inside your leg, you can have it on your weak-side leg & it'll still be accessable to both hands.

    If I BU carry a small auto (Currently a Kel-Tec P32), it's in a pocket holster, sometimes in my weak-side front pocket or weak-side back pocket (Different pocket holster, too).

    If you're driving alot, I'd recommend ankle carry. However, I've have & use a K.L. Null SMZ shoulder holster for my S&W 442 at times & have to admit, it's a great way to carry a BUG also. I've used it under a T-shirt, so it can pretty much be used under just about any conditions. I'll admit a shoulder holster, under the shirt, is not fast, but it's comfortable, easy to access while seated/driving & can be drawn with either hand.
