As you can hopefully see, I slightly modified the PVC bedbuddy, shotgun holder. Everything is made from 1/2" PVC pipe except the gun holders. This is what I changed from the original design shown on this forum. The holders are 2"x1/2"x2" and 11/2"x1/2"x11/2" PVC tees respectively sawed nearly in half lengthwise so as not to weaken the 1/2" center attachment. These sizes fit my Mossberg 500 "Home Defense" model perfectly. I had everything except the one larger sized tee in my stash of sprinkler system parts. It fits and holds the gun perfectly on the bed. Hope this helps.

That's a nice gadget; inexpensive and practical. Thanks for the sharing.

Looks good and is functional, not to mention inexpensive. Sounds like a winner to me.

I made one with 1/2 plywood an used conduit hangers wrapped in electrical tape. It's a little thinner.

I think it looks cruddy. You should send it to me along with that shotgun :smile: Seriously, looks good, very creative.

Doesnt your pipe design make for a lumpy bed?

I made one years ago out of bar stock and tried to patent it only to find out someone beat me to it. I guess that is the guy who is selling them in the back of magazines now. I have to say, I would have done a much better job marketing it.

I like it, but I'm curious - can't you feel the 1/2 inch PVC through the mattress? Seems like that would be annoying to me.

We've got one of those pillow top mattresses that's about 8-10 inches thick. No lumps. Don't know it's there. It sits so close to the bed I don't kick it getting in or out.
