    Just saw in a catalogue a double shoulder holster designed to hold 2 full size 1911 pistols one under each arm?Whose great idea was this? How do you conceal the fact you are toting an extra 6 lbs around you would have to be superman or the rock for that kind of rig what was this company thinking?

    It was thinking it could use people's stupidity

    to fuel their profits.

    Lot's of people see something like that, and order it,

    and wear it, without thinking it through carefully.

    lots of companies put out lots of useless or impractical products because some usually buys them and it makes money for that company. most companies are in it for the money and to make a profit.

    kind of like how everybody and his grandmother go on the Zombie bandwagon. why? because it made money.

    I could see it as a barbecue rig with some shiny ones hanging there. I'm a big fella, don't think the weight would bother me, but I also wouldn't try to conceal it. My dad has a leather vest that will hold two. Never would know it either.

    People carry two guns all the time. It's just another way to do it. How many have a BUG?

    I think it's all kind of silly to carry that kind of hardware unless you live in Compton but as long as Demand a Plan actors keep making shoot em ups to help finance more gun control people will make rigs like they see in movies and video games. Even though I am not as proponent of multi gun or in the I need 30+ rounds to go to Walmart crowd there are plenty that are. And that's another way to do it.

    This rig was worn in two movies recently. Alec Baldwin wore one in The Shadow carrying long slide 1911's. Johnny Depp wore one as Dillinger in Public Enemies. People see something in the movies, they go looking for it the next day. If you're gonna carry two guns, aka a New York reload, what better back-up than another full sized 1911?

    I agree, that holster is such a stupid idea, no one will ever part with their hard earned money for something that useless!

    I would find it very usefull. Have wanted one for a long time just haven't spent the money yet. I don't and won't shoot indoors. I take guns and some ammo and walk through the woods and fields for miles at times. Walk up and down creeks and shoot stuff I throw in, down hillsides and shoot at certain leaves, rocks etc..... I usually take 2-3 pistols, one in a holster, and the others in a pack with 150-400rds of ammo. A double shoulder holster would be just the ticket for my style of shooting.

    Yep it's great here. Total lack of gun control laws. Any politician who would push that commie crap here would lose an election by a wide margin. We aren't enlightened like the west or east coast. Thank God. Tell us hillbillies to hide in our houses like the cowards in MA and they would laugh at you.

    Just so you know, I will never try this. Idea: Attach a shotgun shell to the tip of an arrow so that the primer is right on the arrow. Hopefully, it won't blow up from the force of being accelerated to about 200-300 fps. When it hits something, BOOM (maybe)

    As with any item, a company usually develops a product and carries it based on high volume of sales and/or the request of its' customers. That said, I can actually think of practical reasons for that rig.

    1. You possess a mesomorph frame and have no problem hiding your EDC and BUG in the same holster.

    2. You drive professionally and find waist carry uncomfortable or a safety hazard (back injury or paralyzation in an accident from hip/SOB carry) and wish to carry a BUG.

    3. You have a bad back or are confined to a wheelchair and must carry the guns above the waist.

    4. You have arthritis, Parkinson's or nerve damage that makes reloading the magazine under stress a chore, but you are a competent shooter.

    5. You are truly ambidextrous.

    6. You want to improve your off-hand shooting, so you carry and draw from a mirrored rig.

    7. You ride a motorcycle and your shirt is constantly being loosened and flapping in the wind, causing a brandishing situation in some states if your EDC/BUG is on your hip. (This problem has been expressed to me from other riders)

    Just the subset of professional drivers (Truck, delivery, taxi, etc.) is in the hundreds of thousands, so the base is big enough to carry the product, not to mention the film buffs added to that that want to be just like Bruce Willis!

    i think every industry comes up with stupid ideas for products for consumers to buy. why should firearms be any different?
