This instructable is done for practice, number one, but is also a useful tutorial for making a Glue Gun Grasper. Also known as a holder. Ever been annoyed by the gun stands that come with these things? Seems that the gun is always falling off, gumming up things you don't want it too, even moving into your way and interfering with your project. No more. I came up with this idea after being frustrated by the aforementioned bugs.

For this project you will need:
1. An empty cat food can, washed and dried.
2. A piece of cardboard for a base for the can.
3. Ballast: i.e., old nuts, bolts, and washers, or anything that will fit in the can to add weight.
4. Wire cutters or tin snips to cut the can with.
5. Paints of your choice and a brush.

I always wanted a way to recollect the creep! One product I'd love to see is like a glue gun holder, it holds it upright, and collects the creep into a glue stick mold, pop it out ready to use the creep!
Yes yes yes! This is also my dream
Great idea! I guess i'm the only one who thought this was a detailed plan to stop some villain whose primary weapon is a glue gun. i dunno.
