Arduino controlled turret (using NES controller) Answered

I got the two servos I ordered in the mail today, and I decided to control them with the NES controller I bought a few days ago. And this is my idea:
An NES controller airsoft turret. I already have everything set, I just need to make hardware to move an airsoft gun with the servos, anyone know how?

Here's the video of my accomplishment so far (sorry if I mumbled...):

And here's what I made the buttons do:
Direction buttons move servos
A Shoots
B Toggles a laser pointer on and off
Start brings the servos to center position
Select toggles Automatic and SemiAutomatic fire

This is really cool! do you think you can make an instructable? so i can make one by the time my arduino is at my door?

Alrighty, yeah I cut up a little piece of wood and put one of the servos in a notch, and then taped the other servo under it.... and then attached a laser pointer to the Y servo. I'll post a video after I get a cheap airsoft gun.
