    My Snowtrooper mannequin has hands I made from wood and fingers made from metal clothes hangars covered in plastic tubing, so it's fingers will hold the gun. It keep it there, I used a zip tie that's hiddne by the folds of glove fabric.

    zip ties...unbelievable. I've been messing around with different guages of wire to get the right strength and the whole time I had some zip ties in my garage. The black ones blend perfect with the blaster and I used some clear ones around the wrists beneath the gloves. I attached the two together and it works great.

    Thanks for the idea.
