No bug currently; just 2-3 knives on me usually.

Often w/ GSDs too. In our cars (and elsewhere) there is plenty of fox OC spray.

Seecamp .32 or M60 .38 2". Primary is a Compact Sig or Glock in either .40 or 9mm with two spare mags. Plus Benchmade folding knife.

I'm not in the Coast Guard, but have always subscribed to their motto: "Semper Paratus". Grew up two miles away from the U.S.C.G. Academy.

Rarely now.
Back when I did, it was a 442 or 340PD in the waistband, then it was a G-30 (G-21 was my primary).

I don't always carry a BUG, but when I do, it's a Ruger LCP, right front pocket, in a Mika pocket holster. My purpose may be a little different than you're thinking of. My reasoning is that if I'm in a situation that is suspicious but doesn't quite justify going to my belt gun, I can have my hand appearing to be casually in my pocket, but it's wrapped around the Ruger, ready to draw if needed. If the seven .380 hollow-points don't do the job, then I can go to the main gun (usually a SIG P320, carried IWB appendix). Put another way, it's a "little gun to fight my way to the big gun." Of course, you know what they say about plans surviving first contact with the enemy.

I keep an expandable baton, razor knife & multi tool in the door pouch of my car..
Usually keep a 9mm on me most of the time = Glock 43X, M&P Shield 2.0 or Springfield Hellcat OSP
Snub Nose 38 & 357 always get left at home
Never leave a gun in my car either EVER!

Being retired my primary is usually a J frame in the strong side pocket. I often have a second J frame or a 365 in the off hand cargo pocket.


Keep your weapon handy, live free and prosper.

No. Once I stopped being an LEO way back when, I've carried only one pistol.

I don't count my 3" Spyderco as a back up weapon.

Nope. Did it for a while once upon a time across three different BUGs over a period of about 5 years, switching from one to the next when I found enough things to dislike about the prior gun. Ultimately I wound up asking myself WTF was I doing and just simplified my carrying life.

One gun, and maybe a spare magazine or two if a perceived need arises. Still have a knife I suppose, if the situation somehow strangely came down to that.

In my 35 years as a cop, I don't believe I worked a day in uniform without my Colt Cobra .38 in an ankle holster. After auto pistols came in vogue, I did briefly try a G26 in an ankle holster. However, it was a little heavy and uncomfortable compared to the snub, and I ended up taking it off after about 8 hours into a 12 hour shift. I soon went back to the trusty revolver. It might have been different if there was a P365 back then.

Yes, typically a P229 as a backup for my rifle. Wink

But if we're talking a backup of the backup, I rarely have that these days. Used to be a LCP or P3AT.

I'm reminded of that scene on the Tom Cruise Jack Reacher movie where she asks him to put on a shirt and he replies "this is my shirt" as he wrings it out and hangs it up.

Sometimes known as a NY reload. NYPD stake out teams would carry as many as four revolvers along with 12ga pump action shotguns for anticipated social encounters with violent criminals robbing stores.
