Display stands

Post by Dinosaur » Sat Dec 13, 2014 1:59 pm

I'm just putting it out there to see if anyone has made any stands and what way they did it, it just got some new shelves in and I want a stand for my 250,1500 and 300 if you possible. Thanks :) ex

If you have space to put soakers on displays, then you haven't got nearly enough of them :p Pegboards are probably the easiest way to display things without taking up a lot of space. If you have shelves, just arrange the soakers in ways that they stay propped up.

Original boxes work well if you still have them, but I could imagine one being a little creative with strong plate and/or picture stands to prop up a water blaster for display. I've either put boxes blasters on display, positioned blasters carefully on glass shelving for display, as well as displayed blasters that are able to stand by themselves (e.g. the Super Soaker Monster XL). I'd also imagine that some decent-sized acrylic stands could be used also to help prop things up securely. The main thing is to ensure that a blaster doesn't end up falling over and off the shelf that could end up damaging the blaster in the landing.

If I can still find ways to display water blasters, I won't accept the "lack o' space" excuse. :goofy:

Sidenote: this is about displaying blasters, not displaying *ALL* of one's blasters! :goofy:

Original boxes take up so much space! I stowed them in the basement in little bunker stacks, useful for stupidly casual nerf games.

I agree (in some respects) that original boxes take up a lot of space, but this is about displaying, not efficient storing.

I cant use boxes I want to display the real thing anyway, and I got some new shelves and unlike before where I pile everything on this time I'm trying to display them right and to make sure they don't fall off. Nearly lost a 250 that way

I would totally do this if I had a garage. You gotta take a picture when you're done.

Heh, the only stands I ever made were out of cardboard. Duct tape and cardboard. Not exactly an impressive means of display.

Now if you could hang your guns using fishing line, that would be cool.
