Carrying two CCW guns legal?
Are there any states that actually ban the carrying of more than one gun concealed?
The reason is I simply sometimes feel it would be very nice, in some really bad parts of town, to have a smaller gun ready in my coat pocket, instead of where mine usually is: In the small of my back in a IWB holster, which is also under my tucked-in shirt, which is also under my sweater, which is also under my overcoat! Add having to remove a glove from my hand to draw, and you are looking at me not only being shot multiple times before I can ever draw my own gun, but the bad guy would have time to reload, have lunch, and then empty his gun into me again before I even finished getting the weapon out of my waistband. :embarassed:
(Some states are finicky: I had a license to carry unconcealed in California MANY years ago (armed response patrolman; not a LEO), and California was unbelievably particular about what you carried (down to only carrying the specific type of pistol that you had originally qualified with, and no other, much less a second pistol concealed/unconcealed).
