Personally I'm not happy with a pistol if I can't spin it. Its part of the fun, and adds a little extra to the design. This just happened to be another one of those steps that didn't get photographed until it was finished. But anyway.

I got a small bracket for modular shelving at the hardware store. I measured it against the handle some, then cut a piece off. From there I curled the edges in. I didn't want to have the corners where my finger would be, comfort is part of the design. Then I added two notches so it would bent more easily where I needed it, and curled it into the correct shape. 

To attach it to the gun, I carved a notch in the underside, and along the handle so it would rest more easily.
