The problem with rugs is that sometimes the 'hairs' may cause some bad light reflection or get in some parts of the gun or hid them.

I would if I could but I don't actually have anything white. I just decided I'll go for some good lighting using the pool table light. It makes white connectors glare but otherwise it's good enough.
