I have been carrying a Kel-Tec P-32 as a BUG to my GLOCK 19 for about three years. I know the .32ACP is less than optimal as a self defense cartridge. IMO, the most important quality in a back up gun is that is is always there, and at the time, it was my best option. I will still probably carry the P-32 on occasion, but I am going to get a more powerful BUG for those times when I can carry a larger gun. The three weapons that I am currently considering are the Kahr PM9, S&W 642, and GLOCK 26.

Let's see the guns you guys carry as a back up gun.

Glock 27

Primary Sig P-229, back up or for lighter carry, S&W Model-60.

Soon as I get the money, it will be a Walther PP.
Like you said, .32 ain't great, but the most important thing is that it is always there.

I carry a G19 every day, but I think it would be too big for an ankle holster. Then again, Arnold carried a 92FS in an ankle holster in "Kindergarten Cop."

"backup" in that it sits next to my home defence gun.

Glock 26. Love it.

I carried a 19 in a Galco ankle glove. It was doable, but the 26 is much better. Particularly if you want to wear jeans. Unextended mags still hold 10 rds. too.

My backup gun is the same as my primary. I carry a matched set of S&W 4586TSWs in a Ted Blocker double shoulder rig.

I just fart on the attacker, the toxic fumes usually cause them to pass out...

My primary weapon holds 16 rounds and I carry either a 19 or 33 round spare mag. I also carry a spare mag for the BUG.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 8:54:47 AM EDT
Mine is a a Beretta .25 Jetfire. Older version, but carries 8+1 rounds. It is a great pocket gun and very reliable.

My Primary is usually a Springfield 'loaded' 1911A1, full size. Occasionally swapped for a XD Subcompact.

Backup, if it's carried, is usually a P-32 in a pocket.

I also have a Taurus 9mm snubby that I've been known to carry as backup, but that is usually my car gun.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 9:13:26 AM EDT
Kahr MK-9. Fast, accurate, reliable. And LPCs too!

Like many, it depends on the weather.

Hot=Seecamp .32, cool, sometimes the Ruger SP101.
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 2:17:28 PM EDT


The one in the middle, after trying all three in the picture (and then some).

All day, every day - so flat and light you forget it's even there...

Haha, thats awesome. You ever shoot both at the same time? Dual wielding would be awesome. For target shooting at least.

Let's see the guns you guys carry as a back up gun.




S&W 642
Right jeans pocket in an Uncle Mike's pocket holster.
Loaded with Speer Gold Dot 135gr. +P HPs.

I'm a mostly 1911 guy, but I gotta tell you, that S&W 642 is one sweet little revolver.

My back up is my Glock 26 with the 12 round mag. The other mags are usually close. 17 round & 31 round mags.
