Secondary Back Up Gun

Some officers carry a secondary back up gun.  This is often a very small gun of a very small caliber.  The intention is that if you are taken hostage, you may be able to keep this gun hidden and deploy it at an opportune moment.

It's also useful if you have trouble reaching your back up gun.  In a fight, it may be hard to reach your back up gun.  A secondary hidden back up gun should be worn in a part of the body different from where you keep your regular back up gun.

These guns can be very small, .22, 25, 32, 38, or .380 are popular calibers for this kind of gun.  The gun should be as small as possible.  You don't really need to have a compatible caliber of ammunition with your duty gun or back up gun.  The nature of the deployment of this gun does not typically require a reload; that's what the SGT Says.
