Thread: Where do you CC a BUG?
I have not been OCing for too long, but have been CCing for less. I have actually only CC'd a handful of times in an IWB holster. It is not very comfortable. I am toying with the idea of getting a small gun for ankle carry as a BUG or when I can't OC, but I don't know if that's any more comfortable than IWB or not. Can you guys give me your input on this? I am eyeing a Sprinfield XD sub compact. I don't want to go with anything smaller than 9mm for a BUG. So I guess my questions are:
1) do you CC in an ankle rig?
2) if so, what kind of gun works well with this method of carry?
Thanks a bunch for the input.

Yeah... no purse. I don't like having extra stuff with me when I go anywhere. I like to have everything in pockets so I have both hands free. Also, I know I would set it down and forget it somewhere. I am not a fan of fanny packs either.
Smart carry - I know a lot of people use them, but I am not sure it would work for me. I don't think most of my pants are loose enough. Looks uncomfortable too, but I guess that is the price you pay for CC.
Never really thought about the time aspect of drawing from an ankle holster. I may give that some additional thought. I just want a concealable, comfortable CC option!
I've tried it, to draw from standing requires taking a kind of 3 point football stance. It also has an advantage for drawing from a seated or prone on your back. I'd only recommend it for a secondary carry weapon.
I've packed my Colt Govt. Pocketlite .380 Auto in my Galco Deep-cover on occasion which works quite well for 'dressy' situations, but lately I've been using a simple Uncle Mike's neoprene pocket holster for it which is actually more useful/comfortable in general.
IMHO, ankle carry is the WORST way to carry a pistol. This would be my last choice. (And YES, I have carried a .25 ACP Jetfire this way.) It is horribly slow to draw.
My primary BUG is a Colt .380 Mustang and my alternate is a Taurus 2" .357 Magnum. Both fit well into my Galco Pocket Holster. Give this a try. It is very fast and comfortable.

I carry my Glock 22C in an inside the waistband on my right side about 4 o'clock. My BUG is a S&W airweight .38 in a cross draw about 10'clock. I use a revolver for aBUG because if I lose my primary, it's probably going to be close quarters and don't have to worry about jamming it into a body and having the slide go back a little and out of battery.
