I was thinking about a better way to display my guns for photos than sticking a Sharpie or a cartridge through the trigger guard.
This was my initial prototype made from a couple small pieces of oak I had laying around

It was a little more work than need be, so I did a dash one engineering change
This one is very simple. I had a 2.5 inch wide piece of pine and cut it into 4” lengths. I all also ripped a 3/16” thick strip off another board and cut these to 4.5” long. I lowered my table saw blade to about 3”16” high and cut a slot about 1/8” wide. I glued and nailed the thin stick To the opposite side of the slot, sanded and then wiped with Old Fashioned oil finish

I built the 4 pine stands in less than an hour tonight.

They work great for J through N frames and even work with Rugers

I didnt patent the design yet so feel free to copy these for yourselves.
If you lack a table saw to cut the slot, you can attach a small piece to the front, like in my prototype. A 3/8 dowel could be cut to lenght & then have a flat spot sanded on one end which could be glued & tacked on the back for a upright

Looks nice and you don't have to put anything up the spout either.
