Thanks for the information. This looks like a quality pistol stand, and I like the sliding grip holder to allow for many different types of pistols.
A friend sent me two pistol stand designs that you can build. I have the complete designs in a pdf. file. Anyone wishing to receive a copy, just drop me an email and I will gladly send them as an attachment to the email.

Thanks, Jay and Greg! Jay, that's a thought! If you want a Scout pistol, keep an eye on Gunbroker - they turn up at reasonable prices pretty often. I have to say that a .54" 430-grain maxi running just under 1200 fps will get your attention! I looked for the Scout pistol for years until I ran across one at a local store for $99 - the manager was a friend and wouldn't take more than $90! I've got new grips on it now, and it's a dandy - was thinking about running it out to the range tomorrow.
I've used the spray on bedliner before, on a gunstock, and it's nearly bulletproof. You can vary how rough the finish is, by varying how far away you hold the can when spraying it. Further away gives a rougher texture. It should keep it from sliding around on the bench, and if you hold the can closer, for the parts that touch the gun, it should protect the gun from finish damage. Just an idea.
