Since making my range box, which probably weighs 30 lbs empty, I decided I needed a cart to make the travel between the car and firing line more manageable. Going through the garage I stumbled upon (literally) one of our old jogging strollers that we got for free and was so old probably no one else was going to even pay that price.

So I disassembled it to get the rear axle bar (1/4” thick aluminum) with the two bicycle wheels. Took some scrap plywood and made up my little cart. Complete with rope handle. It fits quite nicely into its little garage between the corner aquarium and the office desk.

The base is two sheets of 3/8” exterior sheathing glued together, the sides and back are made from 3/4” birch plywood scrap and the leg is made up of a scrap of 2”x3”x5” mahogany. Couple of 1/4” lag bolts hold the plywood base to the aluminum axle.

Have gun cart, will travel.

I like it. What kind of shooting do you do?

Bullseye pistol…50 yards slow fire, 25 yards timed and rapid fire.

Slow fire is 1 min per shot, timed is 4 secs per shot (5-shot string), rapid is 2 secs per shot (5-shot string).

Usual match is 90 record shots with a .22, 90 shots with a CF, 90 shots with a .45.

I applaud you for having the patience for bullseye pistol. I do USPSA, IPSC, and IDPA. I just can’t slow myself down enough.

Nice, I haven’t gotten into competitions yet, but I’ve been thinking about IDPA. Right now, I just mostly enjoy shooting some old military surplus guns.

As a father of 5, you’ve made me rethink all those donations of old baby gear we made to the church :) That’s a great re-purposing!
