Cowboy action shooting carts are a necessity for those who participate in the sport. If you’re not familiar, it’s basically grown men and women dressing up in period gear and portraying a character – often with obsession!
This solid mahogany cart is adorned with one of our classic eagle carvings and my name and nickname as a SASS member. (Single Action Shooting Society)
Designed to carry rifles, shotguns, pistols, ammo, lunch, and water the cart also provides a seat when you reach the next stage. We’ve seen some very unique carts and very simple carts over the years. Some look like old time wagons, others are iron, many are wood. This one always seems unique in itself!
Time hasn’t really allowed me to attend an event in quite a few years, but it is a lot of fun if you ever get a chance! For more information check out SASS’s website.
