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.

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.

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

Usually by it's back legs......oops! Wrong type of bug.

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.
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
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.
