Magnet Firearm Holders Safety
During daylight hours I have installed a set of magnet holders for my semi in a hidden readily accessible location. These magnets, as advertised, can literally be installed anywhere and their powerful magnets will hold your firearm in place and readily accessible. The problem I just discovered that I wanted to share in the forum is the fact that when I remove the semi from the magnet and do so close to the magnet as I hold the semi in a horizontal position, the magnets are powerful enough to impact the safety lever on the semi and actually have it move from "safety" to "fire" w/o my even realizing it. If I should decide to keep a cartridge in the chamber, I now have a loaded semi that is "fire ready" w/o my immediate knowledge, unless I look at the safety position or the usual red dot indicating a "hot" gun. I intend to contact the supplier/mfgr or any others on web who offer same and mention this and perhaps they will at least include a small notice on the product warning purchasers that the best way to remove the semi from the magnet is to pull it away from magnet before sweeping it horizontally upward and near the magnet's pull, which can also pull the safety lever into a non-safety mode.

Thanks for the safety info.
place finger on safety till gun is removed from Magnet. ;)
Keep finger off trigger till sights are on target.
don't point the gun at any thing you do not wish to destroy.

I use one of these magnets in a hidden area of my bedroom. I used it with my Glock 17 so there's no 'safety' issue.

Is there a safety available for your gun made of a non-magnetic material, such as aluminum or very high grade stainless?

How about not relying on a safety...and know that the gun is loaded at all times. Works for SIG, Glock, M&P...etc.

Your gun is securely hidden.
You know the safety is off.
As long as the magnet doesn't effect your index finger, it shouldn't be a problem.

FYI I was able to replicate the event and found the problem. I store the semi in a vertical positon with grip up. The magnets are very strong and when I want to remove the gun I grab the grip and pull the gun up toward my body, the magnets tend to keep the gun close to the covering on the magnets which allows the gun to minimally "brush" along the magnet bar. With the safety located midway on gun, the "brushing" causes the safety to flip from safe to fire. Yes the problem is my immediate fault but it happens in such an innocuous manner that it could be a potential problem.
