hmmm the clear ones don't have that rib around the top. the lid is more of a plug that goes inside. How could I hold the can in place while I fire my gun?

Put a screw through the back of the barrel to stop it and you shouldn't need to worry about it sliding out the front of the barrel unless you are shooting at a very low angle.
