I think the first holder I made to keep the MIG gun handy was just a 2” ring of 3/8” round stock. It had two problems. It allowed the gun to rotate so I could not keep it in a desired position and it tended to catch the gas nozzle and pull it off.
I now use two short pieces of tube oriented at 90º to each other. One is parallel to he vise jaws and one is perpendicular. When I’m doing a lot of MIG work the gun is in the perpendicular one. When I want the gun out of the way I move it to the parallel one. The tubes are short enough to avoid hooking the nozzle.
