How does you fill in material into a gravity flow cup spray gun?

Please give me your feedback!

When working with a gravity flow cup spray gun (without 3M system), how does you fill in the material? Do you hold the gun in one hand while filling it or do you have a special fixture?

Thanks in advance!

My gun can be set on a flat surface while filling it. Don't think you need the poll option for this thread. Just let people reply.

It's always easier to fill the cup with the gun mounted on one of many types of secured bench top holders. Especially when using a strainer. I've tried to get all fast and fancy trying to fill on the move, only to find myself on hands and knees wiping up spilled paint. :(

I actually cut a one inch wide slit down the side of a duece for a holder, because I use an extra large cup, and I have a regulator mounted at the bottom, so it wont fit on most stands. The gun goes in the slit, and the cup rests on the inside of the bucket, so there is an added bonus of a spill catcher built in.
