    Hello Mas

    I know it is popular and I like the idea of a carried backup gun being able to use the same magazines as the primary gun. As in a G27 to back up a G23 or G22. The same type trigger and manual of arms is a good thing. But also that the BUG could be reloaded with the primary gun mags if needed.

    My question is have you ever heard of an incident where the primary guns mags were actually used to reload the BUG? I couldn't recall any myself.

    Thanks, Mas Ken K. AKA Smith10

    Ken, it looks as if the recent hacking of GT took out my answer but left your question.

    I can't think of a case off the top of my head where an officer had to reload his Baby Glock with a mag for his larger Glock in a firefight. That said, the logic of the system is inescapable.
