How to make a Gun Stand

Hello Nation,
Ive been watching videos and looking online on how is the proper way to make a single stand for your gun from PVC pipes or trying to make a stand for your whole team, Question is... If i was to go to Home Depot, what are the exact parts on a single? or multi person gun stands?

Please help. Thanks

Material doesn't matter. Whether the stand is PVC or CPVC, or hell, even copper, it doesn't matter. Just stick with the same size pipe and buy a decent cutter.

Just watched the video. Here it is simply:

1. Go to Home Depot
2. Tell someone you need a 3/4 inch PVC stick
3. When they show you where the sticks are, also mention you need 3/4 inch PVC 90 degree elbows and T fittings.
4. Also grab a cutter. Should be in the same aisle.

For a simple stand, you won't need glue or primer or anything. Just press-fit it ask and you'll be fine.

Or you get a 2X4 cut it to about 24 inches then drill holes about every 2 inches in the wide part and get 3/4 inch wooden dowels cut at about 6 inch lengths. You can adjust the length of the 2X4 for the amount of guns.

For just a basic, you will need;

1/4, 1/2 or 3/4 in PVC pipe, Keep everything the same size.

5 - T's(normal size) and one two sizes (ie 3/4 to 1 in) You will use this one for your barrel

8 - 90 degree

Make sure you have a pair of ratchet PVC cutters they are worth the money and it will save your arm from the dreaded hack saw. Also get some PVC foam for where the tank rests and some foam with adhesive backing for where the barrel rests

Its really not hard. Not trying to sound like a dick but really you wouldn't even really need to watch a video. Just simply draw up how you want your gun to sit. Meassure it out, Cut and put the pieces together.
Now if you want some good designs then yes look up the videos. Which will give you the parts needed.

Here's a little gun stand I made out of a couple pieces of hickory, an old lag bolt, and a piece of square luan plywood.
