I liked the slip-on windshield so much that I added more Lexan below the gun rest and now it is like sitting in a convertible at fast speed. I used to freeze my jewels off on the scooter coming in a night in the winter time because of the wind chill. Hoping the vacuum created will suck up some engine heat too. Also, added a second gun rack so I can carry a squirrel sniper and a yote rifle. Attached File  Recon_2gun.jpg   91.26KB   31 downloads

John's just being silly. What he really meant was the big screen TV. :P :) With the addition of the windscreen, how easy is the access to the rifle? It looks like you have to exit the quad and get to the front of the vehicle to remove it from its rack.db

No I wasn't Dave! That Plasma TV is not coming off of my riding lawn mower to go on some quad! :) :PBesides I already have a reclining chair on that zero turn mower. I was hoping Bill would have some ideas on where the refrigerator might go. :) ;)

You are right......have to dismount to get the front gun. This evening was a perfect example.....when the sun got close to the horizon, I stopped and swapped gun positions and had the Hornet rifle handy. Not 15 minutes later, I got a running shot at a coyote and just shaved some hair off the top of his back.....probably would not have got a shot at all if I had not swapped the guns around. Most of the time I have a pretty good idea when and where I might encounter a coyote so I'll just have to be ready. The worst thing that could happen is having to shoot a coyote with the "wrong" gun......I have been very successful doing that.

Bill,Can you find room to mount one of these on the Evil Green Machine? It is good for ground and aerial targets. You might not have enough ammo if you use it for squirrels, the magazine only holds a thousand rds. Let's see a thousand rds of 20 MM, you might have to get some heavy duty springs. :lol: :lol: I don't remember how you get it to fire one round at a time. :angry: Posted ImageThis was cropped from a US Navy photo taken by Journalist 3rd Class Zack Baddorf.
