    Maybe I am a bit slow but I don't get it. Is this chunk of foam attatched to the end of the gun? I just can't see how it actually works. It doesn't look like something I wpuld be doing anytime soon.

    If I am understanding this correctly the only application that comes to mind would be to have it sitting in the cup holder of my car or truck. I guess you could quickly reach in and pull the gun but I am thinking the entire cup would come with it. You'd have to use both hands, one to hold the cup in place while the other pulls the gun. I don't see where I would use it much but others may find it useful.

    Interesting concept - I am thinking tho, if you had a regular 32 ounce (large) cup anyways - and if the ''grip'' of the cupholder rubber bits was enough - then just ''park'' the snub inside that, with the lid not clipped on.

    Then the lid could be brushed off and hand straight in to grab with cup staying in place. My truck cupholders are low down and so it'd be quite easy - have to give it a try!

    I can see this for BG use, while being patted down at the door, then just walk in with the cup, who would really check his cup for weapons if it also had a straw?

    From the pics on their website, im gathering what your seeing are demo and cutaway views. Id be willing to bet that the foam stays permanently stuck on the bottom of the cup.

    You could put some Velcro hook and loop on the bottom to keep the cup from being pulled up with the gun.

    I think this is a pretty good idea myself. It would actually be a good idea in my F-150. The cup holder is right next to the stick shift, just below my right leg.

    Looks to me like it would be great medicine for carjackers.

    I think that concept has great potential.

    Officer safety updates are useful, as no one had time to search all the time to find the latest and greatest in concealing / hidden weapons. If you have your CCW I doubt most PD will care if you use a 32 oz. Cup O Gun to carry your pistol in. (although they may snicker alot).

    Yeah..I got the same email.

    Its too interesting to not pass on. Anyhow, if you've got the permit, how you conceal it dosent matter.

    Great idea. Now, what other everyday items can be converted to an impromptu holster?

    They had one of these at my local range a couple of weeks ago. The form fit a cup tightly, and has a magnet to hold the gun competely upright. The magnet does not inhibit the draw. The top (with straw) can be swept off and gun drawn very quickly! Not getting one, but they work quite well, and make a quick access during a carjacking!
