    Muzzles up or down?

    Rugged Gear has models ready to go for about $500.

    Muzzle Down. The rugged gear carts are nice, but I’m wanting to build my own.

    Make sure you line the part where the muzzle touches the cart with something that won't melt, like silicone rubber.

    This is my cowboy gun cart, for me and my wife, so it is designed to hold 2 shotguns, 2 rifles and our ammo and stuff. Technically, cowboy is a 3-gun sport...well 4-gun, really. I started with a red welding cart from Harbor Freight, then I built the platform and painted it to match, and it reminded me of the town in High Plains Drifter, so I painted the top of my ammo box like the sign for the town of Lago, in the movie.

    Serious cowboys go much fancier

    Picked up the Rolls Royce of baby strollers off cl for $100 and the atv gun mounts for $70. I will get a sheet of Masonite from the office tomorrow and almost be done. 0B10E144-1B0E-48D7-BFEE-31FE790ED35F.jpeg FD43DFB8-4FDB-4484-A244-D156DC769D3E.jpeg 104D25B1-DAB3-4FF5-BF84-918A04509A2A.jpeg 8FFCE6FB-CD7B-488C-8CD2-7D1E90225C2A.jpeg BF46FC6D-AF1E-4600-95C6-C276814A098C.png

    Very nice work on your cart. The coffin looks way to heavy. On a positive note the coffin could dual function for a bed on long match days

    Craigslist B.O.B. stroller $80
    2x 2Gun ATV mounts from Amazon $80

    Works perfectly and still folds like normal for storage. Holds up to 4 long guns and lots of other gear

    No pics on my phone currently.

    Extra room never hurts. We often run two people on the cart so 4 long guns is necessary. Even if I'm by myself, I'll let others use the extra spots so they aren't lugging guns all day.

    Because of the terrain around here, rubber tired carts work much better than baby strollers, especially in the sand, and have much better storage for ammo. Buy the yokes separately.

    Last match I saw a guy with one and a jimmy rigged shoulder harness. I never saw how he stopped it. I looked at those and thought pushing would be easier than pulling for the simple fact of stopping.

    I didn’t consider tire width for softer terrain. That might be something I need to look into.

    I got a Ruggerd Gear baby stroller as match product years and years ago. It work's ok, but I didn't like how the pistol gear and ammo had to go under the long guns, so I sold it to a buddy for cheap and got the pull cart. Put double yokes on each side length wise, and had plenty of room for the big gun bag, ammo and ice chest. Had a umbrella velcro tied to the handle.

    Thanks. Looked better than it worked! Cooler added too much weight to the front when full and made it difficult to maneuver. Going to downsize the cooler a bit (or a lot).
