    A combination of OWB and IWB.Comfort?

    Ok,heres the deal.I am very much considering getting another matching Sig.Would it be comfortable to carry one OWB,and one IWB on the same side? Not at the same position,maybe Outside at 5 o'clock and Inside at 3,something like that.Anybody ever done it?

    Seems pretty awkward to me, I'd rather have a BUG for the weak side, IF I were going to carry a second gun.OMO

    Curious as to your intended purpose?

    That would certainly be a load in your pants! How about a double shoulder holster?

    I have, on many occasions test fit both IWB and OWB holsters while wearing my person SD weapon IWB. I would have to say this is definitely not comfortable in either scenario. Maybe doable for short periods but not long term.
    JMHO, YMMV

    I do not do shoulder holsters for normal carry as i hate wearing another loose button up shirt.I have trouble carrying a gun for my left,weak hand as i got shot and that hand is near useless.

    What do you mean bad link? It works fine for me.

    If you try both OWB and IWB, I'd think it would be more comfortable to have the OWB at 3:00 and the IWB at 5:00. Not the other way around. Perhaps if you want a BUG, a pocket gun might be better given your off hand injury??

    I would think that suspender wear would be mandatory with that kind of set up.

    Have you considered cross-draw? This would eliminate the "stacked" feeling of carrying two on one side.

    I do do have crossdraw,for my .500.The more i think of it,the idea is just too bad for carrying 2 on 1 side.Thanks for the advice yall,i dont think it hurt to ask.

    I agree 100%. I like having alternative access with either hand just in case you are pinned down or against something and can't get to your strong side, or lets say your strong side arm or hand gets injured. Having an alternative access weapon with your other hand also gives you the ability to defend on multiple fronts (threats coming from 2 directions). I see having 2 guns on the same side as having minimal incremental benefit as compared to secondary access on the other side. Just my thoughts. I carry my S&W 442 snub 38 in my left front pants pocket frequently with whatever I am carrying IWB or OWB on my right side. Winter time, I often carry it in my left side jacket pocket. Can have my hand on the weapon without having to go through 2 or 3 layers under a coat and can even fire through the pocket if necessary. Greater flexibility in unforseen complications.
