Looking for a 2 or 3 gun Strong Case...I know its a slim chance even to find used one. Location - The Great Republic of New Jersey!

My 13yr old daughter started to take interest in bullseye and turned out to be a pretty good shot....so i'm looking to equip her for matches and a Camp Perry trip 2020.

I've seen a few WTB posts, but i'm an optimist...you never know. Will pay shipping $   


I've looked up Greg W's custom boxes...but I feel the aluminum Strong Case could be a tad bit lighter for my daughter to carry.

Appreciate any leads if you come across other sites

Thanks
Jack

In my experience, it’s not the box weight that becomes the problem, it’s what folks...myself included, put in it.  I can make a 2-Gun box that weighs about 6 pounds, lighter if I don’t include magnets.  When loaded, my personal box comes in at around 25 pounds.

I like to keep ammo & seldom used "necessary" tools in a separate tool bag.
I think that most of us over pack for most matches.

Well ya! Isn't that what all the empty space is for? Can't let all that space go to waste!
I have everything that anybody on the line could ever need!Very Happy. I slim it all down...and then somehow it finds its way back in there....

I seem to remember some of the more senior shooters "helping me out" by emptying their boxes into mine.
I have since started passing it along.

There are Strong Cases that pop up from time to time. I had to pay 350 for the large model 20inch. It was 275 new!!

Thanks Greg! I agree its what you put in it...appreciate the input. Will think about the 2-gun box. Do you use 1/2" plywood on those?

Thanks

I typically make all boxes out of 3/8”, except for the top, which must be 1/2”.

J,

Here’s my thinking on this.  I can make a 2-Gun box with 1/4” except for the top and bottom.  Without magnets, it’d probably be around 4 pounds.

Greg, can I ask what joints you use on your wood boxes?  Is it just a butt joint?, dado?  

Thank you in advance

Just a butt joint.  Glue and narrow crown staples.  Once the glue is set, the joints aren’t going anywhere.  Boxes are only stressed at three points for the most part...the bottom, the top, and the drawer supports.  I’ve done finger joints, and love the look on an unfinished box, but it takes a ton of time to do it right...too much time.

I can say that I have a 3 gun Strong box and it is very heavy compared to other 3 gun boxes by Pachmyer or others. My box made by Greg is excellent. Weight was the main reason I went to Greg but I went with a 2 gun design so I can't give a fair comparison. The build quality is excellent.

I agree.  I have a few box’s some buddies want with box joints so I’ll try to knock them out over the winter.

I have a different concept for the drawer..I don’t like the blocks on the inside top and bottom.  And a drawer glide is too heavy for sure.

I have a 3 gun strong box. When I go to the range I'll take a 22 and a couple 45's. 100 rounds for each. I have my brass catcher and base attached on the outside. Two magnets full of magazines. Pulled a muscle in my back pulling it out of the back seat floor last week. Now I split the weight up. Guns and ammo in a range bag and everything else in the box. Getting old sucks.
