When I shoot Ruger Rimfire competition it requires a handgun and a rifle. So I copied what a lot of the folks are doing that also shoot 3 gun competirion. Go buy a use baby stoller, the jogging type. and modify it a bit. i got mine for $30 off Craingslist and spent an additional $30 for the rilfe holders. Her is what I use. I din't put it on fo the picture, b ut there is pleanty of room for a small ice chest on the platofrm on th rfront and the is an area under where you can toss mis stuff. Some folks have rigges up a pation umbrel for those hot days. I'm going to do tht for this summer.Posted ImageThe black range bag just sits where the kid normall sits and carries the hand gun or handguns, all your ammo a cleanin kit, a tool box, etc.So her is the second pic to give just a bit of a different view. As you an see, the cart has balloon tires so give you equipment a nice soft ride. Be happy to answer any questions you may have. This works great and doesn't cost much.Posted Image

I used a golf bag cart with a milk crate bungie'd to the bottom. Load the ammo first then the pistol cases and finally use the golf cart bag straps to secure your rifles or shotguns. Worked great till my neighbor wanted his cart back. I've seen them for less than $25 at WalMart.

That's a great idea, Braz. And it has the benefit of having a brake so it won't roll away. Plus, it's collapsable for easy storage in the car.
