Yep. I did this as well, following beason's write up. Have it in my truck and wife's Maxima. It's especially easy with the truck because you open the console to the right, can reach right in and pull it no problems.how hard is it to draw? looks awkward.
i did this a few years ago
solid, easy to draw, and legal in my state. Ive also replicated the mount in 2 other cars. works great!
