A question for my fellow light gun enthusiasts

by harper Mon May 22, 2017 10:14 am

Greetings,

As a light gun fanatic, I am currently set on acquiring various versions of light guns (namely JP and European versions since their counterparts are usually far more visually appealing than the dumb ol' bright orange we have here in the states). Anywho! My question: For any of you who may have various light guns, how do you display them, if at all? I'm basically just looking for ideas on how to keep them out in the open since they're so awesome. If you have any examples from your own collection or ideas please share them!

Based on your description, you have quite a few of the light guns. Perhaps a "shadow box" real gun glass case to mount on the wall? If handy at woodworking, you could make one out of pegboard (for easy rearrange of hooks) mounted in a box with front glass.

Hopefully you own an SD CRT to utilize the retro lightguns.

Conker N64 Alien level comes to mind.

I actually really like the peg board idea. Especially because it would keep them easily accessible and still looking neat.

If and when you get a display set up, peg board or otherwise, do you mind sharing pics? I'd love to see what your array of light guns looks like.

I like holstering them (and other controllers) in those shoe sleeve door hangers (usually will hold around 24 controllers). Nice and compact too; saves a ton of space if you don't mind sacrificing graphics/posters on your door.
...just another lost soul...

I like that idea too. That's what I used to keep my controllers in back when I was big into collecting. May go with that for the short term until I get my game room set up the way I want it.
