Well, I finished my gun cart today and Iím pretty proud of myself. Iím no where as skilled as Spitty, Benning, JD or so many others on this forum but I think it turned out pretty nice.

If you did not know it when you shoot Cowboy Action Shooting Competition you need a gun cart to carry your guns from stage to stage and from the loading table to the firing line and then to the unloading table. With your ammo, shotgun, rifle and all it is a bit to haul around.

A lot of the shooters have pretty fancy gun carts and some several hundreds of dollars. A basic cart starts around $150 if you buy it made but I decided to make mine by myself. I designed and built it and now I guess I want to show it off.

Cool beans Scubie! That is a quite nice shooting cart.

Just be thankful you don't have to drag it out to the 600 yard line and back through the weeds and tall grass and across the creek. But I digress..... :D

Slap a cushion on top of the lid and use it for a stool as well between relays. :cool:

Thanks High, I'm pretty proud of myself if I do say so. I made the whole thing to including making the front support bracket. I think it will go well with the cowboy rig Glass is making for me. I'm also planning on burning my brand into the side of the box or the upright I'm not sure which.

Cool beans, nice job. I like Highpower's idea about a seat cushion.

Job well done!

Well done sir.

I was just thinking this morning of somthing like that for where I went last weekend. I wonder if there is a way to have a cart like yours that also has a fold up shooting rest on the back. Then I could sit on that ammo box and shoot off the rifle rest.

HHHMMMMM:rolleyes:

Sounds like we have a volunteer for another great DIY project! :D

Let's see some more of those "I made it myself" ideas you guys and gals have been keeping a closely guarded secret out there. :)
