    I just purchased a used three wheel Baby Jogger that I want to transform into a first class trap shooting cart. If you have done this, I would appreciate ideas on how/what to use at the nose of the cart for two barrels to rest in and who/how you bought/made the part to securely hold the receiver end of the guns.
    Thanks. Don Magruder, St. Louis, MO

    Here is mine that I made last summer just before the Grand. I bought the gun holders from Rugged Gear(link above) and backyard engineered the barrel end. The barrel end is basically a large PVC end cap with a soft rubber sleeve inside.

    I use a Rugged Gear cart. Just buy it and go. I didn't have time to make my own.

    THANKS, GRNTITAN! Are the Hook Assembly Mounts you used Rugged Gear's "Center Mount", #10781? Is that bolt long enough to go thru the handles or did you have to improvise? Don Magruder, St. Louis, MO

    I have a three wheeled stroller for sale if any one is looking for one.

    Don,

    I believe that is the stock number I bought. I actually drilled holes thru the handle of the cart and welded a nut onto each side of the top of the handle. The gun mounts then screw into the nut. I don't think the threaded stud was quite long enough to go thru and put a nut on the other side. If I had to do it again, I'd buy the Part #40020(the ones that are $39.95) and you can bolt them right to the side of the bars anywhere you want. They are a little more expensive but a heck of a lot less work. Those prices are for a pair.

    Here is a picture of my latest. I will be riding it all summer and plan to take it to the Grand this year.

    Wow Don, that's quite a step up from the one you had last year. Just add that fancy gun rack you built and your set.

    That rugged gear cart is a nice unit...I'd love to use one but haven't figured how to carry the 30" shop stool I sit on when shoot.
