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."

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......

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!

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

Default 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;





(Note: We have no connection to the Sportsman's Guide, Shooting Supplies, Arizona Armor, Quick Draw Gun Magnet, Quick Draw Magnet Handgun Weapon Conceal Holder Attach Desk Office Home Vehicle Pistol Revolver, Sears parts corral et al. Couldn’t care less and think the $25+ship selling price is crazy!
Your results may vary depending on your gun choice, magnet gauss rating, sun spot activity, testing skills, ambient weather conditions, how stupid people think you are, shoe size worn by the gun owner, car driving experience and shot selection. This test was conducted by a professional on a closed course. All test results are the property of the test entity and are such protected by trademark and copyright laws. Use by anyone other than the owner without permission will result in the owner calling you a dirty name!)
