    I rarely carry a BUG, I'm seeing possibilities. I have concerns, probably the same ones as Coach.

    I sometimes carry a bug
    When I do its left front pocket
    Drawing isn't an issue but reholstering can be.
    I'm willing to carry it in another manner to facilitate practice.

    You can reholster off of the clock! Practice the way you actually carry.

    I was thinking more from a match management, slowing things down perspective.

    seems to me you would have to dump a loaded gun vs re holster or better yet shoot to slide lock and pick another one up or unholster

    Those are two options among several. The key will be choosing options that are amenable to people without training and experience in deploying a second gun safely and efficiently. The baseline would probably be how most multi-gun matches require abandoning a weapon to switch to another during a course of fire. They provide a padded box or bucket into which the abandoned weapon must be placed and it must either be unloaded or with the safety (if it has one) "on."

    Most people are not going to be comfortable with the more practical techniques, such as dropping the non-functional weapon and accessing the next or retaining the non-functional weapon in the strong hand, retracting it to a retention position, and accessing and using the second gun support hand only.
