I am wondering how many of you carry Back Up Guns on a regular basis. I read an article over at Active Response Training the other day and it got me thinking.
I do not know Greg, but I have great respect for his expert opinions. I do not follow every thing he advises, however, I generally give his opinion more than a few seconds of consideration.
Here is my problem. I am 5′ 8.5″ and 119 lbs. I am tall and thin, although I am hippy. I carry a full size M&P, so with that, an extra mag, a flashlight, and a knife or two, I kind of run out of real estate. I like the full size gun due to its magazine capacity. Lots of bullets is a good thing.
I have thought about the gun jamming and considered a BUG, but never spent a great deal of serious time on it(I did try the Flashbang for a while, but I just didn’t like it) Now, I wondering if I should either gain 50 pounds to try to hide yet another tool or maybe carry a smaller primary gun to make room for a second gun. I don’t like the idea of carrying on my ankle because I wear mostly boots.
