Range Carts........

So I've started to put together a cart using a hand truck I had in the garage.
I've been looking at pics online....
High Power guys use the 2 wheel Creedmoore type carts.
3 gun guys use the jogging stroller.
But the Cowboy Action guys have the carts!!!!!!
Love the combination of a sense of humor with the craftsmanship!!!

Fantastic.
I really like #2 with the goat cart. I totaled one of those on a hill near my home when I was about 6. Dang tree jumped right out in front of me doing about 20 mph. Brake handle broke off at about 10 mph and I couldn't jump off because it had a roof and sides. Lesson learned.

Nice Craftsmanship. Unique work. You could sell these... and not only for range use.

Nice job on the cart. Lately I'm seeing a lot of the folding yard wagons or beach wagons in use. Some of those Creedmoor or other carts cost up to $700!

Thanks from ColdWarPigGnR

I don't know about those tire's, we do get SNOW here, you might think about snow tires or better yet get a set of chains.

Outstanding job.

Gentlemen, for a number of years I felt that if you couldn't carry it, you didn't need it. Well, I certainly changed my mind on that matter. Since then, I've tried about 3 or 4 different range carts. What drove me to what I have now (a Ray Vin) is being able cover long distances at Camp Perry without a lot of difficulties. The key to having a cart that can negotiate Camp Perry is large diameter wheels. If you notice, all the top end shooting carts use large wheels. Of course, you don't have to buy a top end cart to get big wheels but without big wheels a cart has limited application. Rick

Thanks from TCAF and ColdWarPigGnR

Ha, those carts are awesome! I had thought about one of these welding cylinder carts, $79 at Northern Tool...
