Two at Once

I have two pistols that I like to carry. I was thinking of carrying both at the same time, but I’m not sure what would be the best way to go about this. The two that I carry are a 1911, and PPKs. I’m not even sure if it would be worth carrying both. I mainly carry the PPKs to and form work and around the town I live. I like to carry the 1911 when I go to Detroit and the surrounding areas. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Welcome Fellow Yooper, to our community, we are glad to have you with us. :slightly_smiling_face:

I usually only carry two in the winter, my 1911 on my right hip under a winter coat and a Beretta Tomcat .32acp. in an outside pocket for easier access.
Otherwise, a shoulder holster for the PPK or a small of back holster.
Also depends on how you dress. I usually carry a pistol, a knife and pepper jell along with a heavy walking stick so I dress to carry. :wink:


I have a shoulder holster for my 1911, and a IWB for my PPK. In the winter it’s easier to carry both. I just want to find a way to carry both in the summer (the shoulder holster won’t work as i don’t ware a coat) but i did not think of the small of the back. Thank you.


Let me lead with this:

What less-lethal defensive tools will you also carry?

What life saving first aid/medical will you also carry?

I recommend considering whether or not, and how, to carry a second pistol based on how extensive those first two answers are (likely, where you carry those other things will limit where you can carry the second gun, and vice versa)


Happy anniversary brother @Nathan57


@906Robert ,
It is easier during the winter months to carry two pistols although I only carry one. During the summer I only carry one. Back in the days as a LE officer I carried two while on patrol. One on my duty holster right hip and the other on either a shoulder or an ankle holster. But to answer your question you could wear a loose/baggy fitting button down shirt to conceal the 1911 and if you wear cargo shorts the PPKs in a sticky holster. just a suggestion.
