I love the idea but we have carry conceal here in FL and that's not considered concealed; therefore against the law. Not to mention other states where it could be considered unlawful too.Recently someone gave me a "gun magnet" like the one in the link below. I was curious if anyone here had installed a similar device and where did you put it?
I forget what brand mine is but it'll hold my full size 9mm (17+1) with the streamlight attached. I'm more curious if I could drill the small screws that come with it into the hard plastic on the lower dash?
If anyone has any experience with a similar mount please let me know. I'll try to post pictures when I get mine installed.
This guy has sense ^A magnet is a terrible idea for a holster. While I could give you a laundry list of the reasons why here is the real selling point: there isn't a single cool guy team on earth that is running them. Not when fully kitted, not for long term missions in vehicles, not under cover, never. If a highly skilled group of guys who will forget more than I'll ever know about firearms and tactics won't use them why would you?
A gun belongs in a holster. If you're going to be in the vehicle for 2+ hours and don't want the discomfort that comes from it then consider a console safe (prob best to make sure it's not chambered), or you can do a holster on a ram ball attached to the seat, console, floor, etc. but then you're pulling your gun+holster off and also reholstering, etc. that's a lot of weapon manipulation so it's best to do that only on long drives.
Do as you wish and there are guys that say a magnet is fine and hasn't caused and issue and they are prob right. That said, I guarantee that I can outshoot, out maneuver and out gun every last one of them. Not because I'm anybody special, but because I pay attention and when guys who have been contracting overseas forever speak I listen. If you wanna be yet another woodbooger with a gun magnet, that's your right, but anyone that knows jack about firearms isn't gonna respect you for it.
