    My opinion is that it was crappy range brass. With quality factory loaded ammo I doubt this would ever happen. But if you feel better carrying a BUG, then by all means go right ahead. It's never a bad thing to have a fall back plan.

    I never go to the range without having a carry gun on me (one not being fired that day).

    Can't speak for others, but with a Ruger LCP as the back-up, it's so small and lightweight it's almost invisible. Certainly not a hassle at all to carry in either a front or back pocket. You literally don't even know it's there.

    I think that a bug especially a small one is a great choice. I've been carrying my p3at as a bug for over a year now and its easy and light. Seldom do I carry two larger guns but no matter which gun is on my hip the 380 pretty much stays in the weak side pocket. As was said above I can't speak to anyone else's carry but I would say in the last year there have been less than 5 days I haven't had it in my pocket and probably of those other 360 days less than 5 that I carried just the pocket gun without a larger gun/caliber.

    As long as it's comfortable its just easy to do.

    Take care!

    Do what makes you comfortable.

    To some extent, I play the odds. Odds are I will never need my j-frame, which is my only carry. Yes, you are in a better position if you have a BUG (and my j-frame is a common BUG for others). But considering that the events of 1) a gun jam and 2) a need to use my weapon are mutually independent events, the odds of my revolver locking up when I need it are minute.

    By the way, don't worry too much about range loads v. factory loads. I've had range loads split on me. Remember, range loads are, well, for the range.

    Finally, with my wallet, cell phone, speed strips, keys, pocket change and IWB, I think I'd get a constipated feeling if I carried another gun.

    Best,
    PEF
