In a Comment thread a while back, a few of you talked about your difficulties in getting to the range (i.e. from the car to the shooting bay); some required two or more trips (e.g. me), or some just humped the whole shooting match — guns, ammo, range bags, rests etc. — in one go (also me, only a lot less frequently lately).
When I used to go to Cowboy Action (CAS) meets, I was impressed by the lengths that some guys had gone to schlep all their cowboy shooting gear from bay to bay, event to event. Here’s one such example:
…which is super-purrdy, until you see the price (“Hand me a couple them tamp’ns, Margaret, Ah need to plug mah nose”). Also, they’re almost as heavy as the damn guns and ammo they carry, not to mention bulky (I don’t drive a truck anymore, which most of these old boys seem to do).
As always, I’m probably late to the party and everyone is just going to laugh at me, but of late I’ve been seeing quite a few Ole Pharrts using these little things from Academy to get to and fro:
…which seem to fit the bill quite nicely. They cost around $45, and I think I’m going to get one. Bass Pro and Cabela’s carry similar ones too, only quelle surprise theirs cost $85 and $110 respectively. (Cabela’s “All-Terrain Multifunction” description no doubt justifies the price variance with Academy’s humble “Sports Cart”.) Scheel’s has one priced between the two extremes.
Anyway, the next time I’m at Scheel’s or Academy, I’m going to look into it.
