    Here's another home-made gun cart. It is a Baby Jogger jogging stroller, with butt padding added on the footrest, and 2 bicycle flashlight clips on the handlebar. The plastic drink crate will hold 300 rounds of 12 gauge and an accessories box. There are also gear nets on the back and bottom of the seat. A small drink cooler fits nicely in the seat. It makes carrying your guns and gear much easier if you have a long way to walk from the car to the trap field. Jack Young.

    Good idea, except I never like looking down the barrel of a closed gun while walking. Point the barrel down and you have a great idea.

    Tomas,
    You have a valid point if you shoot a single barrel or O/U break action gun. I shoot Winchester Super X-1s, and my actions are ALWAYS open, except when I chamber a shell on the firing line. By having the muzzles up, I don't experience any finish wear on the muzzles or the rest of the gun, as the cart does bounce on rough terrain. Thanks for the thought.

    Way cool. Do you need a shotgun to obtain that drink case?

    Chango2,
    You just need to be lucky when you take your trash to the dumpster.

    Second on the barrel needs to be pointing down. Saw to many supposedly unloaded guns go off when in the military.

    Like he said, rough terrain, butts down is much more stable. And actions are open.
