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

    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? :confused: 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.

    BUG = Back-Up Gun. That'd be a S&W Shield 9mm for me, though it's usually my primary.

    BUG-OUT pistol? I like my XDm45. Big, but reasonably light and what's not to love about a 13+1 45acp? I've got IWB and OWB setups for it.

    Depending on how I'n dressed, either a S&W .38 snubbie (642) or a Beretta .25 ACP model 950.

    Depends. Since I don't CCW a BUG.

    (since "Shall Issue " in 1986,

    Florida is no longer like Beirut)

    Hunting with my SKS or M44 is usually glassing

    and scouting, so I just have a 92A1.

    When I'm harvesting game with my .44 Marlin, my

    BUG is a DE44...

    Not going to wait that long I hope, I carry a G 22, or a Kimber Ultra CDPII, or a SP 101 as a primary gun, the Beretta comes out just before the knife.
