I've been toying with the idea of start advertising for buying gold and silver. If I do, I would want something like this under my desk. Every evening, the gun would go home or go into the safe.

How did you get the magnet to stick to the glock plastic?

Is the slide on a Glock polymer, too?

Being the only one in my shop most of the time, I feel I am prepared with one in the holster 80% of the time. Sometimes it is impractical to keep my gun in the holster due to positions I have to get into while working on a car, or due to the likelihood of getting a coolant or ATF bath. So for these times I place my gun on the magnet under either the desk or tool cart to keep it in reach. Once I have finished that part of the repair back in the holster she goes. The majority of my business is done in cash, and you just never know when someone will get stupid on you. Then I keep two friends in different places around the shop, a Mossberg 88 and a SP 101.

Mounted on the side of a file drawer works well. Can also be mounted horizontally under a desk if there isn't a drawer in the way. I leave it open when at my desk and close it when I am away. I personally don't leave an unsecured gun anywhere. Too much liability for me.
