    I've been carrying two pistols: One Primary and a Backup. I have one IWB strong side and one pocket carry. I like pocket carry since I can walk with my hand in the pocket, ready to draw, if needed.

    What is your ideal set up (e.g. IWB + Ankle, IWB + IWB, pocket + ankle, etc) to allow for the most flexibility for various scenarios/situations?

    Thank you, as always,

    Rick

    I hate to sound like a commie, but "to each according to their needs," in this respect anyway.

    My friend Dave Kenik determined that a pocket gun on one side, a primary pistol on the other hip, and an ankle gun covered him for all contingencies.

    When someone said, "OMG, why would you carry three guns," he gave a reply that I think was absolutely classic.

    "Four," he said, "would be ostentatious."

    Best,
