Only one way to find out.
Note: One can dial in the amount of magnetic energy quite easily during charging / fabrication of the mag panels.
This is an oportunity for the MFG to come out with a part that is specifically made for clothing usage.

One thing I have found with friends in the police force and military is that lots of times you don't carry because you have no perceived threats.
Having multiple areas in your vehicle where you can conceal a weapon (gun / large knife, etc) can make the difference in keeping you alive or someone else.
I can see a number of locations in a vehicle that you could use this type of mount for, lets say a shotgun mount to the back of a cab or to the cealing of the cab.
Some trucks have built in cargo containers into the fender wells. One mag plate there could hold any shotgun or rifle securely without it bouncing around.
The applications are near limitless.

Very true. No one gave a damn back in those days. My Dad had a 1966 Chevy 3/4 ton pickup that I ended up owning in later years that had a gun rack in the back window. I remember during deer season the parking lot at school was full of trucks with hunting rifles. After school we all went to our favorite places to hunt deer.

I don't worry about how I carry when I'm in a State that allows open carry with a permit. I don't open carry anyway but on the wait is good enough for me. I carry 24/7

BTW, I have the sites that talk about CCLs in CA.
Ill send it out today.

My feeling was since your riding, the gun would have to be suspended on your throttle side.
That being the case (not neccessarily), you could use your throttle arm to hold your vest or jacket, or use a small magnet in the clothing that would attach to a metal clip on your belt.
Just enough to hold the garment still.
Also, it wouldn't be hard to dial in the amount of magnetism in  a plate to hold items less than twenty five pounds.

When I worried more about keeping it concealed, I use a shoulder holster. Maybe I'll add that to the waist carry this year because the revolver in the pocket is almost impossible to get to while riding anyway.
