  • Backup weapon

    Who here has a backup weapon while on duty, and where is it carried on the person? I am considering a Glock 27. What is the best price anyone has heard for this handgun?

    Glock 26. I can/have carried it in an ankle holster, vest holster on the straps, and also IWB with my duty belt covering it from view.

    Check with www.streichers.com, they have a Glock Days Sale upcoming on June 24. LE prices will be right around $400 for Glocks.
    Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

      As my duty weapon, I carry a .40 caliber Glock 23. For my backup, I carry a Kel-Tec .25 caliber. I have an ankle holster and a vest holster for it, so it will sometimes be inside my vest and sometimes strapped to my ankle. I know Kel-Tec isn't the most reputable of companies and I've heard of some flaws with some of their weapons. However, I've had my Kel-Tec for three years now, shot it about 800 times, and qualify with it every 3 months. It has yet to misfire (knock on wood) and is very accurate. What I like most about it, though, is its concealability. It is so slim that nobody can notice I am wearing it whether it is on my ankle or inside my vest.

        When I worked patrol, I carried a Glock 27 on my ankle as a BUG. I liked it. I think I paid around $450 with night sights.

          I carried a GLOCK 27 for a bit. I carried it on my ankle but found it was a bit bulky for my taste. I traded it in on a KAHR PM9 and have never been happier. This little 9 is a great gun and its a shooter too. It rides so nice on my ankle that I completely forget I am wearing it at times. Much slimmer than the G27

            Colt Agent, carried inside the waistband, in front, by the buckle.
            And no it doesn't bother me there.

                I like a Glock 19 as my primary, and a Glock 26 on my ankle.

                This set up allows me to use my primary mags in my backup gun if need be.

                  I carry a Taurus ultra lite 38 as a BUG (dept. issued). I carry either in an ankle holster or inside the pocket holster. You cannot go wrong with a good revolver as a back up. Some of us old timers have been carrying them for years. The revolver has a good track record as a back up.

                    KelTec .40 attached to my vest. Lighter and slimmer than a Glock, and I've had no problems with it.

                      That's what I have been waiting to hear. I am currently looking at picking up a PM9. I have read reviews and it sounds like the right gun for me.

                        My bug carry is similar. I carry a G27 in an Alessi ankle holster, a Smith 640 .357 on my vest and a Glock 22 in the bag next to me.

                          I carry a Para-ordnance P-10 on my ankle. It's a little heavy but it carries 11 rounds of .45 weeee

                          and no excuse for a lack of it!!

                            Richjorg,

                            You will be entirely hapy w/ that PM9 when you get it. They do have a break in period of about 200 rounds before they say they will feed flawlessly. However, I have not had any problems w/ mine through the 200 or beyound. Mine does seem a bit "stiff" when racking the first one in. You have to let er fly to drive it home but I wouldn't trade this little thing for anything.

                            BUY ONE AND ENJOY!
