Do most carry there backup opposite side of their strong side weapon?
Lefthanded in the right handed world one to a degree becomes ambidextrous. When I employ a backup its in the righthand trouser pocket.
Well, OK, my default “primary” handgun position has been at or near 0300, since 1983. Yes, a pocket holster can be a good way to carry an additional gun. Access to what would normally be the “support hand” seems, to me, to be ideal.
So can a good ankle holster, when one’s trousers are of sufficient length, and sufficiently voluminous. I am well into AARP eligibility, and have never had the best balance, so, I reckon that I am all the more likely to end up on the ground. On the ground, that ankle rig may well be more-accessible than some pockets.
An AIWB holster can be a good way to tote an additional weapon. I have not normally toted a primary handgun AIWB, but it makes sense for an additional weapon.
Ruger LCP-MAX, primary side, front pocket.
NAA .22LR 1.125" revolver, jeans watch pocket (right side), turned butt to left, hidden behind cellphone pouch.
There is also a knife on my secondary side.
I want to one day ditch belt carry for tucked-in shirts again, in which case the LCP-MAX would become the primary. Getting ready for this is the reason for this setup. A spare magazine for the Ruger currently rides on the belt toward my right rear, where it will stay.
It's worth mentioning that I have zero issues left or right handed with the smallest Glock, its the only application in which I routinely practice one handed (left) almost 100% of the time.
ZT 4" folder strong hand accessible.
Sabre Red weak hand accessible.
I suppose you might say I've had a bad experience in Houston a time or two.
Nowadays I don't carry a backup. You can drive yourself crazy prepping for every situation and Murphy moment. I consider it enough insurance that I'm armed, have good awareness, and get home well before dark. I'm probably a much less desirable target than the multitudes of oblivious individuals walking around with their faces stuck in their $1000 phones with no idea what's going on around them.
If i carry 2 guns . M337PD/Ankle. M60/pocket.
Extra ammo back pocket.
If I were to carry one, it’d likely be weak side pocket.
Pity the fool that causes her to pull it out.
I'm strongly looking at a backpack shoulder strap holster, but I'm not sure if I want to go open carry???
I like to also place my Backup in a convenient location in the car while driving.
Did i mention primary carry always in my front pocket.
