I'm thinking of mounting a holster underneath the computer table in my office at home so it's out of harms way. I don't have any kids and there's no one in my house other than my wife (who also shoots). I just want something inexpensive and simple to mount under a wood table.



Thanks Guys.

I like the Magnet mount option and think it's the way to go.. Ive only seen them sold at gun shows, but I'm sure someone online sells em.



If you have never seen one, it's literally just a strong magnet with holes drilled through it so it can be screwed into pretty much anything. In most applications, the slide of the firearm just sticks to it, no holster or anything else required.

Not the one I had seen, but same thing.

I'd just find a cheap/used kydex holster and use some short screws to fasten it to the underside of the desk. Something like this:

Just fasten the paddle portion and you should be good to go. You might need to drill a large enough hole in the center of the holster to allow you to put a screw through there too.

I also have my M&P under my desk and I made my own "holster" out of nylon straps from an old backpack.

Fits perfectly in there and slides right in and out.



I cut the straps to fit and screwed them to the underside of the desk. Best of all it's free.



If I had to buy one though, I do like the magnet idea.

I'm liking this idea too. Don't have to worry about a strong enough magnet to hold the gun and any scratches.

I have a Blackhawk Serpa paddle screwed to the bottom of the dash board... Would work fine under a desk.

I bought a few cheap nylon holsters at a gun show, and have one attached to the back of the bed headboard, one hidden within easy reach at the unit at the side of the front door, and one at the back of the house in the computer room

Cross Breed company that is known for making the Supertuck has a kydex holster that's designed to be mounted under tables and the like. It's called the Ohai holster. I'm not sure if you would call it cheap but it's another option.

I have sold many of these in the past few weeks. I haven't had it myself very long but I really like it. The people that I have sold them to have nothing but great things to say as well.

For those who would like to make your own magnet holster, the perfect magnet for this is hiding inside every microwave oven. I've stripped an awful lot of them for making various things. Its a donut shaped magnet, so easy to mount; just glue a piece of cloth to it, and you're ready to go!

Also, if you have any old computer hard drives lying around, the magnets used for the actuators are extremely powerful rare earth magnets.



Just be careful you don't hurt yourself handling these. If two of them decide to attract each other, the force of the impact could take a chunk of your finger off if you're not careful.
