I used this philosophy when I was on duty, BUG!
But even today when I travel by MV I carry two J-frames at a time, more to able to access one in a cross draw in the vehicle and one from a strong side if out of the vehicle. This is comfortable while driving and not a problem for the short time I am out of the vehicle in route.

An armed society is not always a polite society, but it is a free and safe society!
Self Defense is an absolute and natural right!

A BUG is a great idea, in some cases it may be much easier to reach than the primary gun or be able to be drawn without being noticed. Any advantage is a huge plus in my eyes.

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Flying spent brass makes me happy, protects my life and guarantees my Liberty.
My EDC is a nice 98.7 degrees.

I can understand people who carry a second gun on their ankle. An ankle holster seems useless until someone is on top of you trying to cave your face in.
