I used an inexpensive Uncle Mikes and three short (very short) drywall screws. I mounted it for easy access and had it pointed at my visitor's chair. Think about that the next time you visit someone at their office and are asked to "have a seat." http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/v...ons/cowboy.gif

I used a cheap nylon holster and some small sheetmetal screws to anchor it. Works great.

This is a little off-topic, but............he loved her butt......http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/v...s/image035.gif

I think this is a great relocation of the nightstand gun.

I have this inexpensive (read; cheap..cheep) Galco STOW-N-GO IWB holster that got little to no use after getting my Galco ROYAL GUARD.

Rather than having my (God forbid, G22 house gun ) HP weapon rattle around in the obligatory (first place I look in a burglary) nightstand drawer and the need to find a safe place to park my carry (when not carrying), I came up with this.

Unless you’re like BenningBoy who sleeps on a rock in his mistress' cave, you should have these flippin' handles on your mattress.

And yes you safety nazis, it's in condition one and only! http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/v.../icons/yup.gif

I've seen something called a Hide-Away holster on E-bay somewhere,but can't seem to locate it.I got a Uncle Mikes today,was thinking of ways to attach it.

somewhere I've seen a round magnet that screws underneath your desk( not like a boss and secretary:D- it just attaches with a screw. Just stick the gun right to it.

A canebrake "mea culpa"
 
Took a look thinking it may scratch the gun finish but it appears to be completely covered with rubber/poly and should work. Ten pound capacity would hold most any handgun and many long guns.
It is pricey, but a good execution.

My anti-polymer "tupperware" bravado caused me to post:

So, quick in defense of my beloved Colt I retrieved, from the garage, my magnetic parts corral. It has two magnets mounted to the underside of a pan that appear to be of similar size as the above Quick Draw Magnet.

Being the Colt bigot that I am, I needed to prove my stainless XSE would work with this magnetic holster.

Being the engineer that I am, I needed to test the Glock.

We have empirical data showing that both the SS and Polymer handgun can be held in place with a magnet.

The results are below;
