We Get Letters

"Are you a recommender of carrying along X-tra magazines or speed loaders or just a backup gun..."

A back-up gun is oft times referred to as a "NY Reload". With todays wonder-nines and full-capacity firearms of all calibers, it is easy to forget that ANY gun can misfire, jam to all hells, or simply break. And look at it this way; if a 300-pound offense-lineman-wannabe grabs you by the strong side what are you going to do? Thats why I prefer and recommend BUG carry on the weak side. I'm not suggesting a trip to the mailbox calls for strapping on several rigs, but if you are going to be spending time in a bad part of town, or even just want more protection, a Back-Up-Gun may very well be the smartest move you've ever made. As always, its a personal choice, and I'll never tell anyone not wearing a badge how many weapons are on my person and neither should you. Suffice to say that there are times I feel appropriately dressed with extra magazines and/or speedloaders PLUS perhaps a BUG as well.

Concealed, as they do so say, means concealed. Be aware though that some states such as New Mexico allow a permit-holder to carry only ONE gun at a time, so check your local laws before doing so. In fact, check your local laws before doing ANYTHING that has to do with concealed carry of a firearm or lethal weapon.
