Drew up a simple blueprint and took a trip to IKEA. I spent a total of $10 to make 2 displays. The resulting product came out great, and I might wall mount these! Here is a little How-To so you can make one for yourself.
-You need to take a trip to IKEA and pick up these items.
One EKBY LAIVA (23" X 9.5") shelf. I chose the black/brown color - $2.00
2 packs of BETYDLIG (Curtain rack hangers) - $1.50 each
Grab a drill, and 4 small screws. You'll need the screws to mount the curtain rack hangers. The screws are not included.
Open one of the curtain hangers. It should have 2 adhesive rubber pieces. A thin one, and a thick one.
Take the thin rubber piece and put it on the hook like so...
Take the metal piece and mount the longer side to the shelf using 2 screws. I measured this 5 inches away from the edge. You can adjust any way you want, but I found that 5 inches worked the best for me. Do this for both sides of your shelf.
Take the thick rubber piece and stick on the top of the left curtain hanger.
Take your hook and connect it to the right curtain hanger like so.
Don't forget to put the covers on your curtain hangers to hide the screws.
An attractive paintball gun display for $5. Took me about 5-10 min to put together! Like I said earlier, I may decide to wall mount these later down the line. I really liked how it came out. Just wanted to share this with the TechPB community. If you decide to build your own, I'd love to see them.

Yeah, I thought about it, but decided against it.

Hmm... I don't have any pistols, but a friend of mine has one. I'll make one for him and upload pics.
