The backup to my 1911 (or HiPower) is a Kahr PM9 Covert.

It may not be the most 1911-like gun, but isn't that far off either. It has more in common with a 1911 than the typical J-frame BUG.
The grip angle feels similar to me, and the Kahr and HiPower grips feel more alike than their size difference might make them appear.

I don't carry a BUG, typically, but when I carry a BUG-sized primary it's a Smith & Wesson DAO J-Frame, .38+P, in a pocket holster. Extra ammo is kept loose in my other pocket.

If I have my jeans on, there is a Seecamp 32 in my back pocket.

Well, it's been a Kel-Tec 3-AT, but that gun will now be carried only when I can't conceal anything else.

I just purchased a S&W 638 (38 +P) as a BUG and occassional primary carry for those times I just can't conceal my HK USP45 (or 1911).

Since I dont operate in a LE capacity I only carry 1 gun. But then I am also the guy who thinks he can get the job done with 1 magazine. For IDPA I will have to learn those reloads if I can ever get a day off work to go give it a shot.

An old .380 Auto that has been worked by a gunsmith. Looks and feels just like a mini 1911.... Federal Hydroshock HP 8 rounds...

It was my Dad's (Life long Leatherneck) "Bathroom Gun".

His motto, "if I can not reach a loaded gun, im a dead man".... so this one was in his bathroom until he passed away, then I inherited it.
