    Help with how to carry 2 guns

    So here is my question. I want to carry a BUG. I have a G22 and a G27 that are my primary carry weapons of choice. I have a galco owb for my G22 and a CBST that fits either one. I am curious as to what you fine folks would recomend on how to accomplish this. I am 6'2 220lbs. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.

    I used to carry my Glock 23 IWB at 4:00 and my Glock 27 on my ankle in a Galco Ankle Glove. The only problem was by the end of the day you could really feel the weight of the 27. Now I carry a Glock 30 IWB and a S&W M&P 340 on my ankle.

    On another note I recall seeing a post on here recently by a member who has just started making his own leather holsters and one of his newest creations was a dual shoulder holster for a G23 + G27.

    Sorry bigo5552000 you beat me to it.

    I have been exploring looking for a weak side holster with a mag carrier (for my strong side carry gun). In my case, I want to carry an LCP weak side (BUG) with a Glock spare mag and I would carry one of my Glocks strong side. However, this could be applied to you. You could carry the G27 weak side (BUG) with a G22 mag (which would fit your G27 as well) and your G22 strong side.

    The best option I have found so far is the Raven Concealment modular holster with an attached mag carrier weak side to go with whatever strongside holster you want.

    Just a thought.

    I carried a G21 in a OWB and a 30 on the ankle, Also tried a Glock on the stong side I/OWB and a P3AT in the left front pocket or in cargo pants the kel tec would be a leg pocket. For fun I tried 2 IWB on opposite sides. NOT COMFORTABLE for me. I'm looking into a baby glock or snubby for EDC now. I like 2 guns but some seasons call for just one.

    JMO YMMV

    You've got 10lbs on me. If you can carry OWB, then carry the G22 strong side and the G27 weak side cross draw IMO. I've personally not found the best way to CC a full size Glock with any comfort for all day other than SOB and that just won't get it percentage wise for me. My large frame Glocks pretty much get the OWB carry under certain conditions since I live in a no OC state, but use my covers in the cold weather to my benefit. It's been about two years since I've actively carry two at once, and they were both OWB at the time. G22 and G27. Not a common practice for me, but one I can do with few issues. If you need more info, you know where to find me.





    I know....critique me on the belt at the time. I've come a long way since those days in a lot of ways.

    How do you dress? Pocket Holster may be an option.

    G27s are well known for pocket and ankle carry as mandatory BUGs for State Troopers. But with Ankle carry you need to be extra vigilant about cleaning from extra dirt.

    Assuming your normal G22 is waistband (in out in between), then you may want to appendix carry the 27 in a Smart carry as well. If you're going to be doing a lot of car carry then having ankle carry would be advantageous for access if it's so you've got an option where you can have a good grip subtly before you need to draw then pocket carry may be better.

    The good news is there's no real best way, there's lots of good way to suit based on your needs.

    How I carry my M&P set up is have my full size in my OWB holster and have my compact in my pocket. Problem solved.
    Glock: G22 .40 S&W and G23 .40 S&W Sig Sauer: P938 9mm Smith and Wesson: Model 437 .38 Spl, Model 65 357 Mag, and Sigma SW9VE 9mm

    Today I was carrying a Glock 23 in a SuperTuck at 4:30 and a Glock 33 in a Galco TuckNGo at 2:30.
    Knowing is half the battle.

    I concur with RAMROD, but the only time I ever carry a BUG is when traveling. Then it is because it is easier for me to draw cross draw. I go IWB strongside and OWB cross draw.

    I carry a full size, and a compact. No mouse guns, no "sub-compacts".( I've tried all I could ). The optimal set up is the tactical advantage to be able to DRAW WITH BOTH HANDS.

    My primary ( currently ) rotates a G 21, or a Baer TRS at 3 30. My second gun a G 19 rides in a right handed holster, IWB Galco "tuckable" at 7 30. ( "palm out" weak hand draw, and "palm in" strong hand draw.). I'm right handed. The advantage of the G19 is that when driving, it's removed from IWB, and tucks between my console, and the passanger seat under a ball cap. ( By law my handguns MUST be concealed at all times.).

    Other methods I've tried:

    1911 Gov. at 3 30 with S&W 60-14 .357mag in Don Hume 002 left front pocket.

    1911 CCO. Appendix, with 1911 Gov, S.O.B.

    b1780,

    Do you wish to carry 2 guns accessible to your dominant hand, 1 for each hand, or a combination?

    What type of carry works for you: waist, shoulder, ankle, groin, pocket, or other?

    Do you need access largely while sitting or standing, or for multiple situations?
