    How do you carry your BUG?

    I'm just curious how you guys carry your back up gun. I carry my primary IWB in an ACE-1 and am looking for a method to carry a S&W J frame or Ruger LCR as a backup.

    Thanks,
    Clay

    ankle holster for "bug". galco ankle light and/or ankle glove works the best for me with s&w model 60 and/or kel tec p3at. i have also carried a glock 27 in an galco ankle glove.

    Right now, I carry my J-frame in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster if I'm wearing a coat with an inside left breast pocket.

    I also have a High Noon "Mr Softy" IWB clip holster that works well, but I really don't like IWB carry because I find it to be uncomfortable.

    Currently, I'm waiting on a Don Hume JIC belt holster because I've heard that OWB is a decent way to carry a J-frame.

    I carry my 437 (or sometimes my M&P) right in a pocket holster.

    Either in my "Renegade ankle holster", or in my strong side front pocket.

    I've tried a couple of different ankle holsters, but this one is the best of the bunch IMO. Here's a link to a website if you want to check one out. Link to site.

    Good luck.

    Would you post some pics, I'd love to see that.

    In the pocket, using a Mika holster.

    I don't look at it as a BUG, though. It sometimes plays the primary role, so I look at it as another option.

    My uniform pants have pockets inside the cargo pockets, when I'm working I carry a j-frame in the off hand pocket. If I'm wearing regular clothes and I feel like carrying a BUG it's usually in an ankle holster.

    Depends on how you define "backup gun." I have never carried more than one gun on my person at a time. However, I have a bug that I carry when clothing doesn't permit the larger gun. Sometimes I call that my backup gun since it is always my second choice. However, whatever gun I have on me at the time is my primary (and only) gun.

    That being said, I typically carry my bug in an Uncle Mike's holster inside my waistband on my hip. However, sometimes I use an ankle holster if I'm wearing formal clothes and no jacket, or in a situation where I suspect the jacket will have to come off. I have also been known to put it in my pocket and in rare occasions in a laptop bag or something of the sort.
