For those who carry a concealed weapon, do you carry a backup gun regularly?  What is your BUG?
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 6:12:43 PM EDT
I do not, but I will eventually as funds allow.  I'm thinking a hammerless J-frame.
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 6:14:03 PM EDT
Yeah, my primary IS a BUG.

Beretta 21A Bobcat.  

Designed and produced by a secretive race of cat-people who walk upright, have opposable thumbs and possess a knack for devising quality arms, the 21A is a great back-up piece.

Never.  One is enough.  Obviously I'm a loser

Sometimes, and its a hammerless j frame 38.  In an ankle holster if wearing pants, in the front pocket if wearing shorts

Beretta Tomcat.  Makes a nice little BUG, and is also easily concealed in an evening gown or other skimpy clothes.  Fits well in a little evening bag, too.  

It's the gun I had on my thigh when I got married!

I carry a Ruger LCP .380 when I am unable to carry anything else, but I don't carry it as a BUG in addition to my carry gun.

ETA: I also have a S&W 642 hammerless.

I would carry a BUG if I could. NM concealed carry is limited to one gun.

I don't see a need.  But I'm not in a high risk profession either.

I can't even carry a primary...  
Link Posted: 6/5/2008 8:02:04 AM EDT
Sometimes.  And sometimes my BUG is my primary.

I have a Kel-Tec P32 and a Taurus 905 (Taurus 85 in 9mm, discontinued) that I use in that role, as pocket pistols.

As I live in the nearly communist state of WI - we don't get to carry concealed, much less a backup concealed weapon.

If my Glock 19 fails when I need it most then I think its just my time to go.

I have never had it fail at the range in thousands of rounds.

Same, except in a cheapie Uncle Mike's.

Thanks for the pocketholsters address, the only thing the UM does is block the trigger, doesn't hold shape at all to break up the outline.

Usually it's my primary though, I carry an XD9 or BHP for primary when I can.
Link Posted: 6/5/2008 9:45:04 AM EDT
i have 2, S&W j frame 638 body guard style frame and a kelt tech p3at. i have both of them on me along with my normal CCW.

I always, and I mean always have my Kahr PM9 (6+1) on my body with a spare 7 rd mag and SOG folding knife.

When I leave home there is a Glock 30 in the truck with 2 spare mags.  So at this point I have access to 2 guns.  The glock is my truck gun so I don't have an awkward draw from my holster.

When I get to work I also have a Glock 21 with 2 spare mags, so at this point I have access to 3 guns.

Sometimes I also carry on my body a S&W Model 60, but in AZ in the heat wearing just shorts and a shirt it gets hard to hide 2 guns.  I need another Kel-Tec for a BUG, but I gave mine to my dad.

I love my little S&W 342.

If your going wtih the .357, the 101 is prolly a wise move.

I like the rubber overmolded.

Definately Rubber Overmold.... the hard polymer don't give you the added comfort for recoil or the space for your pinky.
Link Posted: 6/5/2008 1:11:44 PM EDT
When your hands are a registered deadly weapon, as are mine, you dont need a BUG.

If I feel that I need to carry a BUG, it is a Kel-tec PF9, it also serves as my primary when carrying my G17 is not feasible.

Link Posted: 6/5/2008 1:58:52 PM EDT
Nope.  I probably should, and may someday, but I don't have the $$ for it.  This is what my CCW instructors recommended (Utah Highway Patrol guys) for everyday carry.

Primary + spare reload/mag (2 depending on gun)
Backup + spare reload/mag
Good pepper spray
Good flashlight
Cell Phone

Have you tried a variety of ammo?  I've found a few brands and types that give it trouble but with Federal or Remington bilk plated ammo it's great.
