Carry In Vehicle?
Has anyone used a magnet to hold your handgun in your vehicle similar to this? I am thinking of getting one for my car and one for my motorhome.

I have something similar hidden inside the box springs in my bed. I had forgotten about it during the move and the gun stayed on, safe and hidden inside the box springs during the last move.

re: Carry In Vehicle?
I have one in my truck. It really works extremely well.

I have it tucked up under the dash. It's actually on the center section. I have the gun in a horizontal position and it has not moved other than to clean or shoot.

I will say that my gun is a glock and the flat top of the gun really helps secure it.

I had a magnet in my old truck. I stuck it on the side of the console with some 5200 instead of drilling. Now I just ride with a pistol in a cup holder and a shotgun on the passenger seat.

I wouldn't want to have to drill screws into my truck. Only downside I see

I use one similar to that inside of my lock-er up console safe. Gun is only in the safe when I'm not in my truck. It's on my belt when I'm driving, but I like to have the safe for when I have to leave it in the truck. The magnet helps keep everything organized in the safe. No holes needed because the magnet stuck to the metal on the safe and gun secures just fine to the magnet even through holster. Never had the magnet come off when removing the holster gun either.

re: Carry In Vehicle?
I just put a Highway Holster in my truck. No drilling and it's very secure. You can also use it with a lower cost nylon holster. I'm very happy with it. I use it for a full size Ruger P95. I hated the idea of drilling into my new truck and I also don't like the idea of an exposed trigger so a magnet mount wasn't for me.

I have one similar in both of my vehicles. I used alcohol wipes to prep then used a 3m double sided tape on both. I’m carrying with a subcompact .40 or 9mm both just about the same weight. It stays put in my Acura but in my excursion it will fall off on occasion. The excursion is a much tougher ride though so I attribute the falling to that.

I've seen the CoJo magnets used for just that. I use them, just not in my truck in that fashion.

Might wanna throw them hands out the window fully when stopped with that set up. Passengers too.

I like it though

What is that setup? I’m looking for something similar for my cab tractor.

I’ve used Gorilla Tape as I don’t want to drill into my vehicle either. I allowed to tape to cure for 48 hours before placing my gun on magnet. Three days later, I found my gun on my floorboard.

For those that did drill, what do the screws secure to? Is there a backing that you have to place behind plastic on other side of plastic?

re: Carry In Vehicle?
I was about to start a similar thread so forgive the hijack.
I’m about to get my carry license although I don’t plan on carrying too often. I do want to keep a handgun in my truck. I have a full size 9mm pistol that I’d prefer to just keep in the house for home protection.

So I need a gun that’s small and suitable for vehicle and the occasional carrying. And a vehicle gun safe. I guess I’m ok with drilling although maybe there are other ways to secure the safe.

Recommendations for either? I was thinking of a compact 9mm just so I wouldn’t have to buy different ammo but I’m also liking the idea of a revolver. .357 magnum seems to make sense. Any thoughts?

Academy has a .357 magnum Taurus revolver for $299. Is there any reason why this is a bad idea? I know Taurus is not top of the line but it can’t be that bad, right? Esp for a revolver?

This is exactly why I just bought a S&W M&P 9MM Shield handgun.

re: Carry In Vehicle?
Smart move. I bought this a few months ago.

It’s not fancy or expensive but I like the way it shoots. Too big to carry around though plus I don’t want to have to constantly carry a gun from my house to the car. Would like to leave it secure in my truck.

Any downside to this Taurus .357 magnum?


I had originally planned on a .38 but now don’t see a reason to buy that over a .357.

I have this one and it will hold any pistol with a flat top really well. I keep a Glock 48 with 17 rd mag in mine and it’s never fallen out in 8 months.
