    a few years ago a buddy had an office in an unsavory neighborhood. He had a device in the well of his desk (the part your legs project into) which was a rod of some type mounted to hold a 1911. when you pushed the muzzle over the rod, the mount would grasp the pistol somehow, and the slide would be pushed back out of battery just enough to prevent hammer fall. So he could shove a cocked/locked pistol. safety off, onto this thing and be able to just yank it off the rod when needed. Seemed nifty. I think it had some kind of locking provision, but I'm pretty sure when the pistol was in place something would click or snap in place and secure the gun.

    Anybody know about these?

    Desk Holsters

    I have a Holster Made by a Company Called General Stamping and Mfg. Corp. out of Hialeah Fla.that works almost like the way you describe in your post ie.there is a rod that goes into the barrel and the gun is held in the holster buy a clip.One of the holsters I have by these people has a plate that could be used to attach the holster to a surface like the underside of a desk with velcro;however when I tried it the gun weight was so great the gun fell.I came up with a beter way.Get a "Uncle Mike's"nylon holster and wood screw it into the underside of your desk.I have had one under my desk at my home office for 5 years and no problems with it.When I worked in a office I did the same thing there,so when I came to work my carry gun went from my belt to my desk holster.

    Fobus also makes a mount that rotates and angles different that will accept a Fobus roto holster. It is listed in their catalog.

    Here's a simple solution you can make yourself in a couple hours for less than $10.

    Start with a piece of 90° angled iron, steel, or aluminum about three inches long. Drill a pair of holes in one side. Drill a single hole in the other side. Find a long bolt smaller than the caliber of the gun you plan to stash. Secure the bolt to the piece of right-angled metal with a locking washer and nut. Dip the bolt in liquid rubber. The stuff that makes handles for tools is perfect. Let it dry. The liquid rubber will stick to the threads, by may not completely cover them, so you may need to dip it again and let it dry again. Once the liquid rubber is completely dry, secure the other side of the right-angled metal to the desk well, the back of a book case, the side of your refrigeratir, the back of a door, or...

    Actually, now that I stop to think about it, you could use a dowell, too, but off the top of my head, I can't think how to secure a fairly slender wooden dowell to an angled bracket. Someone more mechanically inclined could probably improve upon my method.

    I just used a nylon holster ($10 gunshow special) and a peice of scrap metal. Mount the scrap metal to the desk (with at least two screws/bolts so it doesnt spin), slide the holster on it through the beltloop. Of course, it's mounted to the side of the well and not the top, but another screw can keep the holster from sliding off and hitting your foot, or anything else that might be under there, if you want it on the top.

    Saw that dowel system advertised years ago, also sounded good for the back side of a nightstand (not child-resistant of course).
