So here is a question. What is the main difference between the standard rectangular design stand where the tank section is just the back end of the stand compared to the wider rectangular design with the elevated tank holder. Is there an advantage between one over the other (strength maybe)?

An example from the hustle paintball video.



I also plan on building a stand that is shorter in length (probably the wider design) to distribute the weight closer to the marker body. Any opinions are appreciated. I just can't figure out why the more complex design is better other than cosmetics

Just keeps the marker off of the table, helps prevent scratches in general.

So I picked up the supplies today and built 2 of them. Super easy. A few design issues at first but after a little bit of adjustments, they both came out nice. I must say that the PVC pipe I picked up at Home Depot (3/4") along with the elbows was very sturdy and does not rotate very easily after assembly so The tank padding back part I don't rotate down. The only adjustment I do to slim it down is to flatten the front support post.

A couple things to share. I highly recommend this design over the much more simple rectangle for the main reason of the wider design is much more stable.

I used 3/4" foam for the tank padding and 1" foam cut in half to pad the barrel stand. I used 2 way wall anchor tape to secure the barrel pad. The barrel foam grips the barrel nice and secure for an extra layer of security.

I shortened the front end of the stand compared to the hustle video to allow for the weight to rest closer to the frame.

I also wanted to make a double stand but it was much easier to make two separate.

Any thoughts.

This is my 5 gun stand I built for a local team. Reinforced with aluminum posts.

It's not PVC but I had some spare wood sitting around so I made a two piece fold away board for my gear bag. Has slots where the top piece sits in so I can take it apart easily and carry it around without taking up any space. I love it!



I'm gonna screw on a circle on the back I think for a pod holder.

Does anyone have any stands that can hold a lot of guns WITHOUT tanks? I have a garage full (about 40) guns taking up way to much space on the workbench.

How about a peg board?
