In season 3, episode 3, Hank and Gomez are in a low class bar where all the other patrons look criminal. Hank comments that two patrons "are holding", and maybe the bar owner is holding too.

Does he mean they are carrying guns, or drugs, or something else?

When said in that context "are holding" means "are in possession of narcotics".
Confirmed at Drug Slang Dictionary, toward end of this page.

Urban Dictionary says that it means "Possessing drugs available for sale".

They have narcotics with the intent to distribute.
