Range Cart

Post by JKR on 6/12/2018, 4:26 pm

I've been humping equipment since my days as a high-power shooter. This pistol stuff is a lot lighter but I ain't getting any younger. Any suggestions for a range cart for Perry?

Sam's and Costco both sell a garden cart that seems to work.

I use one of these at Camp Perry and on my backyard range.  Works fine, lasts a long time!

Get the Fleming cart If you don’t mind spending money. It’s foldable, can strap your pistol box and range bag to the chair. Can slide your 9 targets behind your box. Then you can sit on your cart on the line

And where can we buy Fleming carts ?  A search of the internet proved hopeless.

Thanks

This link is an article about the Fleming cart.  It gives an email where to contact the manufacturer and a photo.

Both e-mail addresses for Wes Fleming failed to go through.  Just a heads up for anybody else trying to contact Wes.

Here is what I use for High Power. If you are thinking "big wheels" this is great. I wanted wheels that would not get stuck in the loose gravel at the range. You can modify it for your use. It is a welding cart I bought at Harbor Freight.

Thanks for the input. After giving this a great deal of consideration, I've decided to go the minimalist route and carry my box and stool for another year. I travel to Perry in a small car, so not a lot of extra room. Everywhere else I shoot, I'm able to get the car up close to the line. 

I am curious about the little accordion type wagons. I'll pay more attention to them from now on. Do they fold up quite small?

Besides the functional utility, the fold up nature of the carts is a big part of their attractiveness. The dock carts that a lot of folks use are nice, but I wish the targets fit in them better. The extended handle and the large wheels are their best features.

I made mine from a 3 wheel baby jogger. It has pneumatic tires and is great in mud...

Bruce
I just bought a used jogging stroller for building a cart for bullseye shooting. Do you have pictures. I like to get ideals. Or plans
Thanks
