Just finished my new CAS gun cart. This is the contraption that you use to transport your long gun and shotgun as well as ammo and all the rest of the "stuff" from stage to stage.
Used some nice 3/4x12x36 inch sanded shelving that Home Depot sells for less than $5 each. It's glued up from thinner pieces but does a great job for projects like this. Took about a month, working on and off, to finish it.
As the pictures show it can break down into several parts for ease of transport and the large wheels make it easy to travel over rough ground. Looking forward to giving it a "test run" so to speak.

for the pictures

Nice!

Is that what a well heeled gunslinger of old used to carry his stuff around in the wild west? :-D

Cart plans

Chucky, editor of Shoot! Magazine, just asked me to do an article so I'll be drawing some plans up. Be glad to share as soon as I get them down on paper

They said a few issues from now. I'll try to get some of the basic measurements to you.

That really is nicely done. I got one in a trade and it's just great but this is handy enough I may make one of these. Mines all one piece, holds six and is kind of heavy. Parking on hill (hills in TN?) it does get exciting lifting it into the truck. I like the cork. Great idea.

This was in another post but thought I would also put it here:

Here is the URL for directions on building my gun cart: http://users2.ev1.net/~dwel/rm weeky_scores.htm

While not drawings and plans as such they are step by step (sorta). Some pictures at the top also might help. If you have specific questions let me know. I will take some more pics in future and post them too.

About the only change was to move the handle up a bit so it is easier to tilt back. So far working out quite well.

Dunno what that wood is but dang it shore if purdy.

That was one of the carts I looked at when I designed mine. Got way too much woodworking stuff in the barn to buy a store-bought one. Mrs. kinda likes the looks of mine, too.

Old Cane, yup I think he also makes one called the Pony that is priced under $100 if I'm not mistaken.
