In a critical incident, you may need to use a back-up gun to replace the primary gun that has ceased functioning or run out of ammo. Selecting a back-up gun is not as easy as some think. Many factors should be considered, including whether your primary handgun is one that you really will carry every day, since many find a full-size pistol uncomfortable and end up carrying only the back-up gun. Rob Pincus goes into detail on the variables to take into account as you search for your ideal back-up gun.
