    Magnetic holsters or mounts

    Other than the quick draw gun magnet ( Quick Draw Gun Magnets ) , is there any other options any of you guys/gals rigged up for a nightstand, end table, or desk? I am thinking of doing this for my end table by my bed without spending $25-30 bucks.
    BTW- will be mounting a 1911 (full size), Ruger P85, or S&W Sigma .40

    Thanks!!

    DIY Magnetic holster

    Magnetic is a good way to go. Quick and easy access.

    I bought a package of rare earth magnets at Woodcraft and use some 2p-10 super glue (the real stuff) . Now I have magnetic holsters all over the house that no one can see. The real plus side is it is a cheap way to have a handgun handy no matter where I am or what I have on.

    Probably various sized magnets, as long as they're all rare-earth magnets. This is a pretty interesting idea. My problem with the commercial product in the linked site is I can't tell how abrasive that might be. I'd cover it with some sort of fabric, maybe felt.

    I know these are made for firearms but i'm concerned about the transfer of the magetic energy to my firearm. once something gets magnetized, it starts picking up crap all the time. How will this effect your weapon short/long term and its ability to perform when you need it to save your life? I have a holster screwed to the side of my desk, which serves the same purpose.

    I used the 23.5x3mm, they are slick on both sides hence the super glue on the back.

    The magnetic holster is cheap, but the guns aren't!

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I have a very cheap nylon holster mounted to the back of my nightstand by the bed. couple different ways but i used velcro that way you can change out the holster for different sized guns.

    If you get a copy of the NRA store catalog you will find a magnetic gun holder that you can attach with glue or screws to a desk or just about any thing else . It is coated with a thick coat of plastic so it will not scratch your gun. It will support ten pounds.

    But my pistol is made of Tupperware so magnets won't work!
