    The more I get into F-Class shooting the more gear I collect and have to haul to and from the line for matches and practice. I have been contemplating putting a range cart together that would allow me to incorporate some of the gear into the cart and have storage/carrying ability for the rest.

    My thought is to have the basics built into the cart such as a seat, maybe a cooler, tools and parts storage or range bag area, and possibly stand for spotting scope.

    I was thinking of a cart like the three wheel jogging strollers to build on. Would like to have it foldable for ease of transport in the car or truck. That would require using canvas for seat and storage.

    I have looked at some of the units available on the market but not happy with any of the designs I have seen so far.

    I am curious as to what others are using? What thoughts do you have on what you think is the perfect range cart?

    I like my Fold-It cart. You can fit a lot more in it compared to a converted jogging stroller. As the name implies, it folds flat for transport. Not cheap, but mine has lasted 10 years so far without any issues. Plus, it's made of rain-proof materials.

    Found used Jogging Stroller on Craigslist ($35). Added ATV Rifle Mounts/Grips ($15)-Done. Folds up nicely into my Prius.

    Glad to help. Those mounts are basically what I used, except Fleet Farm had them in the $15 range. The more I save, the more bullets and gas I can buy....Can't skimp on everything, but this is one place I did. Alot of my friends use Fold-It and they are very nice.

    @Papa Charlie I have a used Rugged Gear cart I'd be willing to part with if you're interested. Maybe if I get over to Machias or Plantation sometime this winter/spring...?
