Hey you know how I have those 2 XDs now?
Well the new one has had 400 rounds through it without a hiccup and is almost "certified" for carry... well heck 400, 500, who is counting.
I was just thinking, with the cooler weather FINALLY coming to Texas, who carries two full size guns? How could you if you wanted to? Shoulder holsters come to mind, but what else?
I'm not actually serious about this but I've never thought about it before.

im sure you can fit it on both one one side with 2 holster or they make that holster for 1911's from Face off that holds 2 1911's

I saw a picture of one pair with two 1911's pointing away from eachother. I'd never carry like that, you'd never be able to sit down, but I saw it once.

If I really chose to ''double up'' - hey I could have 226 in usual place strong side OWB - then put on my Bianchi X-15 sho rig and put the 220 in that
If however we are thinking of a two hand double draw - (which I ain't) then I guess my 220 would have to go in a lefty rig on weak side but - problem - that's where Leatherman and e1e live!
Yep for me - std rig and sho rig - that'd work - easy. Got me thinkin' now Euc

I'd have to go with the strong side belt holster and the under strong arm shoulder rig. Spare ammo in the shoulder rig and on the belt :)

Two Large Gun Carry
I do...but, only sometimes when I am heading into a few "known" bad & High Crime areas.

If I had to carry two full sized handguns - I would carry them in "mirror" image holsters - one on (or slightly behind) each hip.
We all ought to be practicing with the "weak" side anyway.
In fact - I have shot a couple of IDPA matches "weak" sided just for practice. Funny thing is - my shots "weak" sided are MORE accurate than I am "strong" sided - but I am SLOWER weak sided by about 25%.
If I had to go into a bad situation armed only with a handgun - I would take my two G22's in mirror image holsters.

guess ya could. If I am travelling in higher crime areas(downstate) I carry both my full size and the compact as well as a NAA too.

I've used a Bianchi Silouhette (IIRC?) shoulder, and kydex IWB before, mostly to see, "Could I...." Very comfortable, and easy carrying. The biggest problem was that you no longer have a "safe" arm to reach for things, w/o flashing.

OWB strong side
OWB weak side, cross draw
October 27th, 2005 11:48 AM
S&W N-Frame 3" OWB 4 o'clock
Sig P220 OWB 8 o'clock
Takes a little getting used to, but it works for me. Also I shoot about the same right or left handed depending on the day. I do for some reason shoot revolvers better right handed though. So that is why my particular selection on each side.

I remember seeing a rig a few years ago called the "New York Reload." I can't remember who made it but the pic was a S.O.B. holster with twin snubbies positioned mirrored at the top straps, other guns were possible. I wouldn't personally carry this way due to the "wheelchair effect" but those rigs are out there to be had.
Double shoulder rigs are offered by a few holster makers and you could always use dual OWB rigs, dual crossdraws... or dual IWBs and clown pants. :D

Just what you need

I carried 2 Govt models, one of each side. With ammo/gizmos it was around 8 Pounds of gun. And it was TOO DAMN HEAVY! :D
I still carry 2 or 3 at a time...just not all big heavy guns.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice..........Rush
