Rebar Paintball gun / marker display stand

Something I made last year to hold one of my paintball markers.

I made this stand from some scrap rebar and mild steel I had around the garage. I basically just heated the rebar with a oxy acetylene torch until bright red and bent it on a vise. The two supporting plates was MIG welded onto the rebar.

This stand is very sturdy but if I were to make another one, I would have placed the side supports farther back closer to the paintball marker's center of gravity.

I used rubber tape to cover all the areas of rebar that would make contact with my paintball marker.

The length and angle is a bit unequal for the paintball tank support area, my next one will probably be better since for this one I made all my cuts and bends by eye.

The side supports that keep everything upright is made from some scrap that I MIG welded together.
