I do. Depending on the weather (cold or warm) I either have a Glock 30 45 acp on my ankle or a NAA Gaurdian 32 in my pocket.
I can think of many reasons to carry a back up gun as a Civilian CCW permit holder.....Delija said:Thanks again. I actually saw that (private security) on your profile. I guess I should have thought to look there before I asked....oh well, I am slowly learning my around this forum a tiny bit better by the day (except I can NEVER get the "search" function to work).XD BACKUP GUN said:I have been known to carry a snubbie .357 mag in an ankle holster too!
I am in Private security as well so I need to carry multiple guns!
So you are an armed guard in your private security work? if so, it must be in a pretty dangerous area of the industry? I don't see much armed private security around here (although I do know a guy who is a bodyguard and carries a full auto Uzi pistol...but he protects a public political figure.
I had never heard of anyone carrying CCW as a civilian with a backup gun. That was my real point of interest. I am sure if you carry a backup gun you must have your reasons.
I was hoping you could explain them. But certainly it's your private matter and I wouldn't presume to impose on you to explain yourself if you didn't want to. I would understand and respect that completely. But if you don't mind...then I would be very interested, since I've tried to imagine a scenario where a private citizen with a CCW permit would need (or think they need) a backup gun.
So my curiosity has the best of me. Maybe if you don't feel like giving an explanation, someone else will. I'm sure you can't be the only one who finds comfort with a backup gun.
Anyway, it just seems like a lot of weight. Especially with your selection. The XD Sub isn't like a Kel-Tec or some weightless pocket gun. It's a substantial hunk of metal (and polymer).
Thanks for any insight.
OK, interesting take. Personally, I don't see the logic.XD BACKUP GUN said:I can think of many reasons to carry a back up gun as a Civilian CCW permit holder.....
Most armed encounters are over very quickly. In a Situation of Life or Death if your primary gun Malfunctions the easiest thing to do is draw your BUG(Back Up Gun) and continue to engage the Perp(s).
An interesting question. While I don't see much use for a back up gun, I definitely see that for you it's something that works. And that's what's important. Not really how many other people do or don't carry a "BUG".XD BACKUP GUN said:How many other CCW/CHL people out there carry a BUG?
I understand. As I said to "XD BackUp", the only reason you need is that it makes you feel more secure, or "better" or "good".Jeff_1 said:My reasons are,
3. It is my personal right to carry however many CCW as I want with out having to explain why
I have gone a couple of times with 3 on my person and then 1 more in the console of my car. It feels really good and noone can do anything about it
Are you serious? There are two kinds of pistols. Those that HAVE malfunctioned and those that WILL.With today's gun and ammunition technology, I don't see how reliability would be an issue.
I totally agree. Some are better then others but nothing is flawlessHighVelocity said:Are you serious? There are two kinds of pistols. Those that HAVE malfunctioned and those that WILL.With today's gun and ammunition technology, I don't see how reliability would be an issue.
Delija this is too funny!If you didn't want to explain, why did you bother to go on and explain?
:shock:Jeff_1 said:Delija, Your thinking to hard man. I wasnt arguing with anyone nor was I chalenging anyone. I read a thread and posted my oppinion and reasoning behind the topic. I dont really see what the big deal is. If I could conceal a 12ga I would carry it to
Perhaps he follows the enlightened path... SPAS-12 in extremely deep cover: rectal carry! It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "blow it out your ass."XD BACKUP GUN said:LOLLeMat said:
