Pistols are great.
I have seen lots of people play with an extra AEG or shotgun strapped somewhere to their gear. I don't think I have ever actually seen someone use one though. A good GGB pistol will get you through until you can make it back to the staging area to grab your backup.
Ill all seriousness though, unnecessary weight isn't good idea. First game I came to I was so stupidly over-dressed I could barely move. Tacticool to the max! By the end I had taken almost all of my gear off for the added mobility.
EDIT: I did see a sniper with an MP5K on a single point sling, that seemed like a good idea to me, but other then that I wouldn't bother.
It's better to light a candle, than to curse the darkness
