Truck Mounted Holster

NNNN Senior MemberPosts: 25,146 Senior Member


Saw something similar on FB; but, mounted on the center console.
I can't in this F-150. The Fobus holster clips solid on the door pocket.

One would have to remove the pistol from the holster when in public
and opening the door.

Possibly, a SP 101/LCR might be a better choice as they are lighter
than that pistol.

Request opinions on this idea.

    Mount it inside the map pocket, with a shield to keep people from seeing it. Maybe cant it at an angle.

    Left handed holster in same position. Use a shop rag or small hand towel to cover it when the door is opened.

    I keep my "car gun" in the pocket behind the passenger seat. Hidden and easy to get to. If no seat pocket I keep a pistol pocket under the rear floor mat on the passenger side. Easy to reach and invisable. Any easy to be seen is also easy to steal. :applause: Later,

    I sometimes put the gun and holster inside the map pocket and use a few napkins from a fast food place to hold it in place and obscure the view when the door is open.

    I could adapt my driving posture and leave the center counsel open, I suppose.

    I wasn't planning on leaving the gun in the truck, but, transferring it to a IAW
    holster before leaving the truck and the vicinity of the truck.

    There isn't a back seat~~~~~as I tell Clean, it is a working truck.

    I have a neat visor mounted thing that''s designed to hold CD's.
    It holds my 380 Llama perfectly.

    Right up until you get hit in an accident. On the other hand, in an accident the Llama .380 will become the most lethal it has ever been when it goes flying around the vehicle.

    That is the problem I thought of about the under dash holsters......

    You're knees are going to hit there in an accident. Also, all of the cars we have now have knee airbags. You have to watch for airbags while doing anything in a car now. Can't even put a seat cover in the Cruze cause it has an airbag in the seat (cheap one anyway, they make covers for airbags but they $$)

    I looked into that under the dash mount and believe my legs [knees]
    would have an issue with that mount.
