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.

If your hair is a dark color then it isn't really a problem.

The hairs in my carpet don't really bother me, I guess I could always vacuum them off.

It's basically the same thing as poster-board but smaller. Still poster-board is better for larger guns.

Or just lay your gun down on the floor.

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. Plus I could always try going for a green screen effect and putting my gun in a scene of a movie or something XD.
