Center console Glock holster

Hi all, I'm on the hunt for a plastic type holster that I can mount in my trucks center console that'll hold my Glock 27/23/22 or 35.
For everyday the 27 will be there, but I have several .40's and want the flexibility to swap them out.

I'm looking at all sorts of options, including simple gravity holsters all the way up to Serpa retentions.

There is 3 criteria...
- Hard plastic construction that can be screwed thru and mounted solidly, small areas that a screw can be run thru are needed.
- Capable of holding any small/normal gen3 Glock no matter the length.
- LEFT side type of carry/mounting.. I want to mount it on the passenger side interior center console for better visibility and grip.
Its a slightly longer reach to the passenger side of the inner console, but the visuals and ergonomic grab angles are much better.

The last consideration is a flush fit on the right side, I'd rather not have to shim it out .75 inch, it would be much better if its flat on the mounting side.
The attached photo is headed in the right direction, but its a mess with lots of shims, wrong side, etc...

Nobody?
Alright, let me rephrase... what stiff injection molded or kydex left-handed holster is flat'ish on the right side, has enough meat around the edge to run screws through, and fits all standard double stack Gen3 9mm & 40 Glock frames?

Huge thanks for any help ferreting out the right holster.

What about the Safariland holsters that have the option to remove the paddle?

Just a thought, but how about an Alien Gear OWB with either the leather back removed, or the clips removed, and longer bolts run through the Kydex shell, and the leather then through the console to fasten it to the inside of the box.

^ Not a bad idea. Really just about any holster could potentially be used for this, depending on how much work you want to put into it.

Almost any holster could be used because you are going to have to do some modifications or fabrications on anything not custom made. You could also build a rack(?) of some type that would still work with any of the Glocks you mentioned.

Doesn’t match your criteria, but some sort of gun holder magnet might work.

Thanks all, I was looking over the Safariland option with its clip thing, then also came across this post in Tacomaworld, so I ordered a Serpa (plus male/female adapters) for the Glock27, which will also fit my 22/23/35 with their extra length.
