Based on a post on the FB page regarding vehicular OC, someone posted about a magnet they picked up @ Cabela's for dash mounting in their car.
It was on sale for $15 so I figured I'd pick it up and try it out.

So I took out a part of my dash in front of the steering wheel and mounted it up with some bolts, fender washers and lock nuts and tested it out.
Holds any of my handguns solidly, even the polymer ones just by way of the slide. Puts the gun in plain view nicely, right on the dash.

Only negative, made in China

It was located on a 4-sided vertical accessory holder between the safes and the firearms checkout.

That's pretty clean looking. The only downside I can think of is it's not a very secure hold in the event of an abrupt stop/crash.

It takes good effort to remove from this mount. I hope that I don't experience a wreck but in a nylon holster it may slide around but shouldn't become a flying projectile.

Depends on if you mount the holster or not...

I put my weapon of choice in a nylon uncle Mike's with a metal clip on it. Holds it perfectly.

The drywall anchor thing would work well for this magnet too if you didn't want to rip apart the dash to bolt through for the mount.

Cool idea. I agree with deans concern. From a firefighter/EMT perspective I would ve concerned about this in a crash/rollover event...

yeah, how so - it is on the dash
If you are courteous and turn on the inside lights during a traffic stop, it is in plain view.

However, you are under no obligation in DE to inform but you may want to do so as a courtesy.
