    5.7 cubic feet of space in the trunk area and 24 cubic feet of space with the rear seats down.

    Have you thought about going to a dealer and checking one out along with having some of your shooting gear with you for a little test fitting?

    i just sold my '06 Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works edition. INCREDIBLE machine! 210hp. Raced it every weekend and street duty during the week. Had to sell it in order to get a replacement for my POS Dakota p/u that fell apart.
    With the rear seats folded down there's PLENTY of room. Go for it. You'll love the car. This is the closest any car has gotten to true Brit performance/handling since the 60's. The new version is even larger.

    cheers
    Bill

    Chuckles, get a big truck and you can haul the Mini Cooper and your guns!

    Best,

    Ah come on now Irfner ... we all know that for a Kriegoff you need at least a Beemer or a Benz and a Mini Cooper is for a Spartan or Stoeger.

    Billster appsrently you havent drove a BMW Z3! It would run circles around a mini.

    Clockwise or counterclockwise circles and actually it would run circles inside the Mini Cooper cause the turning radius is tighter on the Beamer than the Cooper.

    My wife lets me drive "her" mini on occasion. Yes you can get a K & a P gun, 4 flats of shells, shooting bag and assorted junk in there. But I put the back seat down, besides that I don't know anybody that would fit back there other than my grand kids. You can drive them automatic or shift it thru the gears like old times (electronic manual). A lot of room even for my 6'4" 250# body.

    It truly surprised me as far as fit and performance.

    "A Beamer beats a mini" isn't BMW who took over and sells the mini Coopers

    Mini and z3 will fit in the trunk of my 1953 Hudson pacemaker. I can also carry all your gear. Hope to have the Hudson paid off in a year or 2

    No matter what car you are making payments on, when a Mini Cooper approaches, you will look at it and wonder.
