okay, so I admit that I’m addicted :) But I’ve done so well at pacing my posts and not cramming them all in there. This is a solution to a legitimate problem we were having last summer. My wife and I love to go out plinking in the woods around where we live. Well, in the area, perhaps a half an hour away from our house. We pack the kids in the truck, gear for a day-trip, and off we go. The problem was that all of the shooting stuff was always crammed into bags or 5 gallon paint cans. So we made this. There’s no partitions inside, no shelves, no anything. But it serves a purpose. I’m proud of it, and so far it is holding up really well. I hope to make one later to hold our camping kitchen stuffs. But with partitions, and shelves, and everything :)

Looks nice, Is it heavy to lug around or not too bad? I may make some sort of wooden case to store my archery gear in.

Well, I wouldn’t go hiking with it that’s for sure. :) But not really, it’s very easily manageable. But we only use it to store in the garage, and load it into the truck for trips. So for that it’s not an issue.
