Like I said I will probably order a few of those magnets the next time I order from Amazon. In the meantime I found a couple of pieces of stretch fabric with Velcro, from some long forgotten athletic activity, and modified them to secure the holster to the seat arm. I just leave the holster there and it works great. Thanks for all the ideas.
Will post pics when I get them, keep forgetting to take.

With all the suggestions and rummaging around in my junk drawers I came up with this. The little brown bag hanging is for spare ammo, 22LR and 22 snake shot.

I found a really good option, actually already had it, an elastic sleeve bullet holder that I have on my 270. Took it and tried it and it works, I think I got it at Cabela's, now just have to find a 22 version.

I keep it on my belt. That way when I get down I don't have a loaded firearm in my hand while I am stumbling out of the cab. And its always with me.

I don't have a cab. I shoot while still in the seat. I always have a Ruger LCP in my pocket if I need to shoot when I am not on the tractor.

Wife just walked in to give me a hug while I was reading this post/thread. I showed her the pictures of the guns on the kubotas and she said, "You need to make me one for my Bad Boy mower." Gotta love that woman.

This is my M7060 mounts. Although I like the magnet idea but not sure of retention ability in rough fields....

Had the same discussion with the wife on wanting to mount a holster on my B3200. Her response, why don't you just wear it. Sig P229 on the belt. I found that my daily conceal holster that fits in the small of my back is not a good choice on the tractor. Tears me up. I will be looking in to making something to hold my 223 for coyotes. Just have to work on how to handle the scope and hope it doesn't get shaken out of alignment.

With the holders mounted to the frame and in dryer conditions, how much dust do you get accumulating in the bolt / slide area? At least with my pistol on me, my shirt covers the butt of the gun keeping it clean.

I guess it would depend on your ROPS placement and your flexibility but I would think an ankle holster would neatly fit the ROPS and easy on / off.
(As long as it had a solid retention strap)
I will try mine tomorrow.
