    Best or most popular way to carry a BUG?

    I want to start carrying my P3at as a BUG ,but right now I have a Desantis Nemisis pocket holster. I've been practicing the draw and about 50% of the time the holster comes out with the gun. What other options are there for carry? Does anyone carry there bug IWB weakside while carrying their primary IWB strongside? Or maybe carry the bug appendix or crossdraw?

    I carry my BUG in my "weak side" pocket and move it to my ankle when I get in the vehicle. When exiting the vehicle I again put the BUG in my pocket.

    I'm thinking of getting another 442 to put on my ankle 24/7 and that way I can quit transferring the gun in the pocket. I may get a 2.5" N-Frame for my pocket as well and then move the BUG to my ankle. Decisions, decisions, what is a feller suppossed to do?

    If your holster is coming out with your gun, get a different holster.

    I wear Cargo Shorts 90% of the time. It's "Summer Time" except for three weeks out of the year. My EDC is a 4" N-Frame carried IWB. I learned to "Dress Around The Gun" years ago.

    With a good pocket holster I don't see an N-Frame "Snubbie" as being a problem. Sure, it will be bulky, but so what? I dress like an "Old Married Guy" because I am.

    By the way, I'm considered a "little guy" at 5'06" and 140# soaking wet.

    Have heard of using a safety-pin and pinning the pocket holster in the pocket.

    I'd just try a different holster, there are some with more of a "hook" then the Nemisis, a "stickier" material (The Superfly is supposedly stickier then it's older brothers) might be the answer, or even just the shape of the holster based on the type of pants you wear........ie: jeans vs slacks/dockers etc
