    I have my CWP, and I carry a good bit, whether it is in the truck or on my person. I carry a XD .45compact. I wanted some way to safely and quickly access my handgun if I ever needed to, and wanted it out of sight.

    So what I did was buy a Blackhawk Serpa Quick Disconnect system. I first got the Male/Female combo at the local gun shop. I bought an extra female adapter to use on my range belt holster rig. So I can easily take out the gun and attach it to my OWB Blackhawk rig and go into the woods or the range. I used self tapping screws in the plastic and it has held up great for the past 8 months and hasn't sagged or pulled out of the plastic yet.

    So here are the results, I also use a Gunvault, safe under the rear seat for when I can't CC (hospital, church, bar, etc...)

    I use a crossbreed Ohai holster that comes with a Velcro setup mounted very similarly to yours which I like a lot. I did a lot of searching for something that would fit the bill. Your setup looks good. Just don't know if I like the finger release with the holster at that angle. Mine is mounted on the side closest to the driver seat and the Ohai doesn't have any release.

    I wish I could mount it on the left side of the console. It doesn't fit due to the lid hitting it.

    I have practiced the draw many times, and it works for me. I was initially concerned about it too

    That looks cool. :thumb:

    I have Gunvaults in all my cars for areas I can't carry......like dropping the little guy off at school every day.

    I just need to do a better job mounting the Gunvault. It is a little shaky. I have the security cord through it right now though

    That's all I use. Run it through the frame under the seat. My Yukon has a large center locking console that the Gunvault fits in, but with my Civic and Odyssey, I keep it under the seat.

    I use a hat. My gun sits on the passenger seat... and my good old fedora sits on top of it. If I have to leave it in the truck, it goes into the center console.

    Your setup is really nice, but I don't have a deep center console. A pity.

    Nice setup. My center console is the flip up arm rest type, so it's way too small for my pistol. I've been wondering where to hide it when i have to get out of sight of my truck. As of right now it's either on me, or I'm just not going in where I can't carry.

    Cool setup. The center console on my Tundra is ENORMOUS, I have thought about doing something similar, but usually just end up tossing the gun in a nylon holster that I keep inside there.

    It's a nice setup! I like the blackhawk holster. I carry my M9 in it everyday in the sandbox. Just be sure to check the finish for wear and tear. My M9 looked brand new when I got it (don't ask how the army got a new looking M9 but it looked nice!:biggrin1:) Now it just looks like it's been run ragged. I'm sure yours will be fine, but it's just something I'd check every once in a while. Great holster though! I freaking love mine!
