Like I said, I still need to take it for a test drive. I will test it by doing hard breaking, going over speed bumps, and taking sharp turns. If one magnet is not enough I will add the second one, that's 20lbs, in a normal car you won't get more than 1.5g, no real Space Mountain g forces here. My pistol is a Glock, it doesn't matter if its loaded it will never ever go off without someone pulling the trigger, even if you drop it from a 5 story building, that's why it's called a "Safe action pistol"! My neighbor is a Florida state trooper, I have consulted with him and he said its not a problem to keep it the way it is as long as I'm a permit holder, not the case for non permit holders, but Just to be safe I might add a holster with a strap (maybe epoxy it to the magnet). Anyways thank you for your concern.
I found this for you, if you read the last part you'll understand:
790.25 (5)(5) Lawful Ownership, Possession, and Use of Firearms and Other Weapons
It is not necessary to have a license or permit to carry a loaded firearm in a private vehicle, so long as the gun is "securely encased". Florida law defines a weapon as being securely encased if the firearm is in a glove compartment, whether or not locked, in a snapped holster (not worn on your body!), in a zippered gun case or in a box or other container that requires a lid or cover to be lifted or opened in order to gain access to the firearm. These restrictions do not apply to any person who holds a valid Florida Concealed Weapon License or a reciprocal state license/permit.
