Double pistol, strait and cross draw

Does anyone set up their holsters like a western gunslinger belt, with strait draw on the right hip, cross draw on the left?
I have a belt set up like that for double zeus', and I quite like it. It was a nesesity of the pistols, because I don't have hosters exactly, but lexan slots on leather loops That have the side rail slide in. The only good use of that rail I have found; unless you want a red dot site while holding it gangsta.
Anyway, I have found in my research, it is one of the traditional ways of wearing pistols, and the gun on the left can be drawn by either hand quite nicely. The same side draw is called "cavalry draw" and is in ly a little tricky at first, but then is quite easy and fast.
Was just wondering if any other pistolaros out there had tried a step up like this. More wild west, less tomb Raidery

Oh, and the reason it had to go this way, is it couldn't use the rails on the side with the detents, so I took those off.

I believe AgentSmith on here ran a setup similar to that for a while (he still might?) with both a strong side and crossdraw holster.
I could be wrong though...

And you would be correct in that there really isn't a practical reason for the rails on the side. Your use of them is the best I've heard of.

AgentSmith ran his Zeuses that way and I'm pretty sure still runs the TiPX's that way as well. Look up Spencer Hoglund, he's a cowboy action shooter and his vids give a pretty clear idea how best to use that type of setup. For paintball, the second gun would be more for if you get into a pinch while reloading but the basic ideas still apply.

For 12g use, 2 markers is probably the way to go. I stick with a single solely due to my impatience with 12g's and their inconsistencies, and run a remote line to a small HPA tank.

Pretty sweet setup! Love the "QuickDraw" slide holster concept.

How are they retained? Just friction?

They slide in fairly tight, but smooth. I bent the bottom part if the bigger piece toward the gun to stop it sliding all the way through. Basicly they are just held in by gravity, they could fall out if I dove for cover, but I play with these both in my hands 95 percent of the time. They are nice places to stow a gun to free up a hand or reload

Two details I would like to point out,
One of the guns has "amat Victoria curam" on the mag, not my doing, the guy i got it from likes.the movie 'the mechanic
The other thing is, both the cocking handles cracked in half on me, and I replaced them with wooden bars. The result of this is one calks them with 2 fingers, like you would a C7 rifle, instead of having it like you would a handgun slide. I think this is on ergonomic, as it takes less strength and accuracy to do it
