inever do you live in Texas? That is some kind of BIG BUG you have there

Mine is a Beretta Bobcat, I loaned it to my FIL a few months back and I feel I need a new BUG now. Or is that just my excuse to buy another gun...I will never tell.

Your little bobcat may intimidate a sparrow or paper targets but my 44 mag will put a round out at 75 yards accuratly and i cant hide the gun by holding it

The bobcat is intended for up close and personal situations as a last resort, if you could conceal a 44 mag why would you need a gun? LOL

If you are carrying a 44 mag for a bug, what the hell are you carrying for a primary? Bug means back up gun. A 2nd gun in case your primary fails.

I don't carry one, couple reasons....
Main reason numma 1, I don't own a small handgun.

Reason numma 2, never thought about carrying a BUG. Makes sense to though.

Whenever I get around to buying a small pistol, I'm thinking a 9mm subcompact or a snub nose .357.
