Sorry for the out of sequence reply, just joined the list. :)

I think what you want is actually a series of entries in your options
file. This works under Linux with a thumb drive, maybe you can get it to
work under Windows(?) by just changing the paths to the keyrings.

# Begin - Set keyrings to flash drive
keyring /mnt/cruiser/.gnupg/pubring.gpg
secret-keyring /mnt/cruiser/.gnupg/secring.gpg
# End.
