Default What do you think about this holster?

Looking for somewhere to put my gun when I am in my truck. I am tired of driving around with it in my carry holster and having the grip gouge my back. At the same time, I want easy access but to keep it from kids reach. I'm considering the steering column mount and this under the seat mount.

Underseat:

Column:

I really like the column mount but everyone near my car would be able to see the holster. Not sure how I feel about it.

Using a XDS 9mm as my carry gun.

Thoughts?

Need to look under your seat to see if it would even work there.
I say this, having just checked my seat (2010 FX2 with all the power crap on the seat), that it wouldn't fit properly on mine... too many cables/junction boxes, etc on the bottom of my seat.

I'm not a fan of the column mount either... I don't have anything bad to say about it... I just don't care for it.

Do you have the flow through console? There are mounting options that would allow you to place on the side of the console.

No I have the bench. So there doesn't seem to be many options for me. Open to any idea...I'm not crazy about the column mount either.

I just looked, I don't think the under seat mount will work. Like you said, too much crap under there.

My holster isn't easy to remove. Maybe I just need to change holsters and do the same. Seems like there aren't many options.

Bigt8600,
Yeah... I'm pretty much out of ideas that I could offer.
Not sure if you've ever seen the other two posts about various methods to carry in the truck.. May be able to find tidbits of help .. or at least another idea or two.

I know where your coming from tho. I sometimes just jump in the truck and forget it. It's painful. Of your worried about kids getting to it. One thing you could try is to glue a magnet on the back side of your dash lower right side and stick it there

Bigt8600,
A random add popped up, on another feed of mine, and reminded me of your post.
Here is another possible idea. Says it connects (velcro) to the seatbelt buckle and fits between the seats.

may fit your need... might not.

Or something like this... Magnet

Thanks. I'll check them both out after work. Still looking for a good and safe option. Maybe one of these will take care of it.
