Pistol mount?

Anybody have any good ideas for mounting a pistol in your rig? Would love to be able to mount my XDM9 somewhere easily accessible while I'm driving, instead of in a lock box.

I've seen something like that before. May have to go that route, just gotta make it a habit to lock that center console when I'm not in the rig.

The lock is absolutely useless if you didn't know already. You can put enough force on the front of the top to open it even if it's locked.

No kidding? This is my first Jeep so...good to know. Looks like I'll be carrying my sidearm in my gym bag from now on.

Look into a tuffy counsel that might be more secure to lock.

Rubi, what exactly is the holster name for your pistol? I have a Glock 23, also left handed...I like what you have there. Let me know please, thanks!

If I have to leave my gun in the Jeep, I keep it in an under seat lock box. I wouldn't trust the factory console or glove box...too easy to get into when locked.

You want it concealed or easy access?

hidden: that panel at your kneecaps
easy: put a cheap holster on the side of the center

Preferably concealed, but with easy access.

Well those are 2 separate things the better a pistol is concealed the harder to get access to is usually in direct relation.

For example an INSIDE the center storage is pretty well hidden but to be honest is a delayed access. Where as a simple nylon holster screwed to the outside drivers side of it is VERY easy to get to but visible when you are not in the jeep.

The knee panel under the steering wheel opens quite easy but unless you get creative puts the gun flat side to you. Or you could just use a magnet mount there as I doubt you want it there for "off-roading" but should hold just fine on road.

I am not going to say I kept a glock sized gun there for a very long time before I got a little more creative with things better hidden and secure, but I am sure one will fit there just fine

I normally have my gun on me except when I'm at work. I keep it in the Tuffy center console insert since the conceal carry drawer won't work with the new seats. When I drive to work, my gun is in the cup holder. When I go into work, it gets locked in the console. I carry a Ruger LCP 90% of the time because I don't even realize I have it most of the time.

I realized that they are separate right after I wrote that....doh!! I'm not as concerned with concealment (at least until I get my permit) as I am with easy access. I would really like to install a blackhawk holster somewhere accessible...

I don't have my permit yet, and in Utah a weapon can only be stored if it is two actions away from making it deadly (that is without a carry permit). So until then, I'll probably just keep it somewhere accessible.

For longer road trips, I usually move my CC gun to a nylon holster attached to the drivers side of the console (next to the transfer case shifter). If I need to leave it in the Jeep for some reason, I have a drop-in Tuffy piece under the center armrest. I have a 2012 2dr so I can't use an under-seat box.

For the mount only, it's a gungoddess. The holster is an Uncle Mikes.
