I actually fled the store weeping like a girl.
That's a good point. Truth be told, I'm not exactly sure what kind of silicone caulk I'm going to need to get this job done.

I'm going to the Depot right now to get some 2x4 redwood.

I used G.E. 100% silicone caulk. It was the only one I found at Home Depot that was 100% silicone. Once silicone is dry it's water proof(condensation) and remains pliable so it wont crack or deteriorate.

I posted a couple in another thread, but here you go. No drip tray yet. I've just been laying a towel on the floor. (SWMBO just loves that.) I didn't drill into the ledge after all. I used the GE 100% Silicone caulk mentioned earleir. And it's pretty darn solid.

This seems to be a really nice size by the way. Easily fits 5 cornies along with the CO2 bottle (5#) and regulator on the hump. Once you get past the 8.8 size, the thing starts looking huge in the room.
