I carry this NAA 22 mag around my neck 24/7 for a bug gun . It disappears under a T-shirt .



My main gun is this Glock 23C . I live in T-shirt and shorts in mid-Tx over 340 days a year .

If and when I wear a jacket I carry 642 hammerless in the ft pocket as a backup because it is light and can be shot multiple time in a jacket pocket without the worry of the hammer getting stopped or snagged in pocket . Also you can walk to your car or point it a bad guy with brandishing the gun ... I hope this make sense ........

Back-up gun? I rarely carry a main gain, but happy with just my LCR and some speed strips. I trust revolvers. Were I to carry a semi-auto, I'd feel a need for a revolver BUG for when the pistol jammed.......

Actually, I carry one of our three J frame Smith 357s as a main carry gun on our daily walks. Don't feel at all under-gunned, but, then, bears and such don't shoot back.

I can't imagine a better backup revolver than our lightest J frame Smith. It's the M&P 340 in 357 with a scandium frame. Weighs just 13 ounces, but with the Hogue grip I installed, it's actually not bad to shoot with 357 SD loads. Best of all is the very easy to see XS night sight on the front. I use an IWB holster for it and you hardly know its there.

No I don't carry a bug, sometimes I itch maybe I have bugs. I have thought about it but haven't decided what to carry and how. TGR has a good option with the NAA. I just don't like having something hanging from my neck. I tend to wear "athletic" cut pants and shirts so no large pockets. I don't think ankle carry would work because I don't wear pants with wide legs.

The term "BUG" stands for Back Up Gun ... more useless information from TGR

I don't carry a bug, but for the last six months I have started to carry two extra magazines ( or two extra speed loaders if I'm carrying my 686 Plus ). Seems the world now requires more preparedness.

Imagine finding that in your sleeping bag. Interesting though a bug with fingers.

If I carry a BUG it is a Khar K-9 SS 9mm. It used to be my Summer carry gun. Now I always carry a full size Wilson in 38 Super cal. I always ware a light over shirt in a tall size.

FWIW, my photo is a male Hercules Beetle from Central and South America. They get up to 8 inches long and can weigh half a pound. The ladies are smaller and don't have horns.
