Gun Vice

For my first post as a new member I'd like to hopefully add to the community by posting a how-to of something a came up with this weekend, a very cheap gun vise. I take my guns apart quite often and have needed a vise for some time but couldn't bring myself to pay the price for a commercial vise, so this is what I did, and so far it works really well.

Hey, Top. That's a nifty idea! What did you use for padding on the jaws?
