Competition / IDPA / IDPA Guns / BUG / 380ACP

BUG

Originally BUG (Back Up Gun) was a side match only division of IDPA not formally recognized in sanctioned matches. Due to popular demand, IDPA has amended the rule book to make BUG an official division. Guns suitable for bug competition fit into one of two sub categories: Bug Semi-auto and Bug Revolver. Semi-auto BUG guns must be chamber in 380ACP or larger, have a barrel less than 3.60”, be loaded to no more than 6 rounds, and otherwise be ESP legal. The M&P Shield, Glock 42 and 26, XD Mod 2, Sig 938, and Kahr K9 are representative of BUG semi-autos. BUG revolvers must be chambered in 38spl or larger, have a barrel less than 3.0”, be loaded to no more than 6 rounds, and otherwise be revolver division legal. Smith and Wesson J-frames and Ruger SP101’s are representative of BUG revolvers.
