Vehicle handgun holster suggestions

I'm thinking about adding a semi auto holster to my 4x4. I have been looking for something prefabricated that stays out of sight as (much as possible), yet is easily accessible. I haven't seen too much out there on this; does anyone have suggestions?

DeSantis Jamaica

Check DeSantis. They market a handgun holster rig for front seat drivers/bodyguards called the Jamacia.
It rides by the driver For a quick release but it's secure/discreet.

piggybacking the thread but...

I bought the one that clips onto the dashboard under the steering wheel.

It works while I am in the car but then what?

It is exposed in plain sight if I leave and since I carry condition 1, I now have to handle it in a somewhat awkward manner to get it somewhere else on my person.

If anyone is out there listening (hint, hint, ramora or sticky holsters), I would like one just like this but would hold my personal holster and gun in place while I drive. Then I could remove my holstered gun and deal with it with zero risk.

Hoping someone comes up with a good solution so I want to keep up with this.

Great question, good luick and hope you find what you want.

Safariland makes a quick detach system that allows you to keep your weapon in the holster and still transfer to a number of places I.e. from your belt to your dash and vice versa

Here's another option for car carry. It's a car mount from Grassburr Leather Works.

Correct name: KINGSTON

The correct name for DeSantis' vehicle holster rig is the Kingston.

It's on the website.

I figured out the correct name. At first glance I think I would prefer that and the gumcreekcustoms because there is no drilling required. This pistol and setup would just be left in my vehicle so I would not need something modular, but I can understand the need for that.

Bruce Nelson...

Former CA narcotics agent & leathersmith; Bruce Nelson designed a few cool vehicle/aircraft rigs but alas, Mr Nelson passed on several years ago.

Bruce Nelson is most noted for his practical Summer Special IWB holster line.

Just google custom kydex holster (your location) and you are bound to find somebody who can make ya 1. Shouldn't set you back more than 60$ max.

Then glue or otherwise fasten a holster to the inside wall of the console. The BlackHawk holsters at Walmart should work for that.

I like mine in pocket on the back of the passenger seat. No need to move unless it is needed. Of course I am 6'2" with long arms.

I use a Maxpedition Universal holster velcroed to the inside of my center console. It works like a champ and I can adjust it to any handgun I wish to carry in my trunk that fits the center console.
