And here it is with the door closed


It is actually VERY hidden and accessable. It is quite secure (from a not falling out standpoint). In Tennessee, carry in vehicles WITHOUT a permit is totally legal (as we extend the Castle doctrine to cars). I, of course, do have a permit and have nothing to hide while driving. I have been pulled over several times. It is very well hidden with the door closed, even if approaching from the passenger side. I ALWAYS announce to the cop that I am exercising my 2nd Amendment right. Cops in Tennessee assume EVERYONE is armed as it is perfectly legal to ride around with a desert eagle velcroed to your forehead if you wish. Again, not suggesting that anyone else but me run out and get one of these--just pointing out a way that I sometimes carry. I find it valuable in certain vunerable situations. I was robbed at gunpoint sitting in a car in line for an ATM 20+ years ago so I am very aware of situations where I am "pinned in" in a vehicle with nowhere to go. For me this is a solution that is better than, "stick it in my lap" "Lay it on the floor in front of me" or 'Hope I can draw it out of my holster from a seated position".

well this is the P224 sa/da i am leaning towards with these accessories with is....
these are the pieces and parts i like so far...i carry a nice ZT 0301 ranger knife and this i think will match nicely with it too...i just wish i would be able to handle one before purchase
see what u all think of my choices......

1...the gun sig p224 extreme sa/da..i really want a decocker too...is the hammer available with the more flat style with the decocker?..

2..the holsters...well after listening to all of u with all the options..i think i better get two holsters to start....i have wanted a aliengear newest model and this gives me a good reason to get one...and of course...the galco ankle holster...i will see if i can make the 229 ankle version work for me...

3..this is just something i found last night...love the simplicity of it...not sure who makes them...if they are on here...even better...pic is from ebay too..i will use this on the other magazine i carry when i use it...
screen cap
certificity.com

and of course i have to change the grip screws...i like the hex head ones...i like things clean and simple too...
is there any other things i need to know except about the know problems?....any ways to make it better?...
i was even thinking about some rubber ugh i know grips for better grips....but i do not see anything available for it...i really like the look of the extreme grips and normally i have wood grips like my Nill grips on my p220....but i do not think it is practical on a CCW
God Bless,John

Yes, I can see it is quite secure from falling out under normal conditions. But will this cup holder holster hold your firearm in this position in the event of an accident? I seriously doubt it.

Removing a loaded firearm from a holster to put it into a safe is considered administrative handling and many, many, many negligent discharges occur during administrative handling of firearms. When you remove the weapon from the protective cacoon of the holster, you open up to undesirable things happening.

For these two reasons, I have very serious concerns about this cup holder holster and would strongly advocate against it's use.

I grew up in Nashville. Go Vols.
I did say 'many' states. While Florida is pretty lax on their laws after studying Tn statutes it seems you are within the law there but would not be here. Tn code makes no restriction on mode of carry and manner of in vehicles. Florida however does. It cannot be visible or openly carried here. So party on Garth.

I have never heard of ANY method or condition of carry that SOMEONE did not advocate against. I cannot say I have heard it ALL, but I cannot think of a single method that I have NOT heard someone warn against. There is an ongoing thread here now warning a guy against ankle carry as his prmary method. Another where people are debating conditions of carry with someone arguing for or against EVERY condition. I have heard guys warn against Glocks. Other guys warn against 1911s. One of the premiere training institutes around disallows IWB carry anywhere on their property and teaches against it. Some swear by open carry and others think it is a crime. I believe (with certain obvious exceptions) that any method of carry can be reliable and is only as safe as the guy (or lady) holding/holstering/presenting the weapon.

That's fine, you are entitled to your opinion and preferences. My input is worth exactly what you paid for it. Hopefully others will at least be aware of the pitfalls I have shared about this product and consider them if contemplating this or similar products.

I have documented here how I addressed these concerns with the product I use to carry in my vehicle:

(from your post on the link you provided)

I work in healthcare and was behind a horrific looking accident where a young family (headed to Disney) had a blow out and I witnessed their SUV flipping end over end 4 times, then rolling over. I stopped to help. Fortunately all occupants were all mostly fine (3 kids in the back seat all un-scratched. Dad had some bad looking but minor facial cuts and mom had a broken arm). Dad was very worried about his wallet that had some cash in it. It had been in the glove box. Several people had stopped and my wife and I took care of the minor medical things and kept the kids calm (thing to do in that situation is keep everyone buckled in their seatbelts if there is no imminent danger of staying in the vehicle. 2 of the kids had gotten out. Mom, Dad, baby in baby seat were still in the car). The others set out to find the wallet. It was found down an embankment, in a creek, about 600 yards from where the car finally came to rest. The wallet (again) had been inside the glove box. The only reason they actually found it was that the other papers that were in the glove box left a paper trail down the hill. How it got ejected THAT far from the car, I will never understand--but the force of such a high speed (full interstate speed) accident cannot be understated. Tremendous rotational forces.

Hey can anyone tell me is a p224 will fit in a glock 26 holster?
I am finding out there is very few choices for holsters for the p224 and far as i can tell no one makes a quality ankle glove style ankle holster....
I have emailed galco and alessi and hope to hear back from both

I will give you a qualified YES.

My P224 fits into my G26 Galco Ankle Glove. The qualifications are these:

1) With the grips of the P224, this portion of the sidearm is a bit wider than the G26 so some stretching of the leather will be needed to ease the final inch or two of insertion to the holster; and

2) My P224 is a DAK rather than a DA/SA. This means a couple of things - with no decocking lever, my P224 inserts to the holster a bit easier than I would anticipate the DA/SA to go in. I belive you said that you wear your Ankle Glove on the insider of your left ankle, as a right hand dominant shooter. This may help the situation a bit as the lever is on the side toward your ankle. Also, the hammer on the DAK is a bit smaller profile than that of the DA/SA. This may make it easier to attach the retention strap completely and properly.
