I have been out for a while but I went to my first match last Saturday . I saw all these guys using jogger  strollers for there equipment . That’s a awesome idea . So which one do you prefer or do you just get a cheap used one ?

That's a neat idea. I'd say go on your favorite CraigsWrist, FleeBay, etc sites and I'm sure you'll find lots of options. When we were using one for its intended purpose we had one with inflatable tires and I found that running then a little on the under pressure side was more forgiving on dirt trails.....which is 99.9% of the ranges I know of. Something to keep in mind, we tested lots and a few were really back at going around corners, which is an issue when running, but we normally walked, but its worth noting. Some had a lock out on the front wheel to stop it from turning but all that extra stuff adds weight and even the one we had was fairly heavy. Don't forget at the end of a days shooting you are more tired and you still need to pack up.

Two thirds of the guys in our club who have carts use these:

The other third have bought baby strollers and made their own. 

Wow, not giving then away! I think the "other third" is saving a bunch of money by converting one....better yet converting a used one.

Wally world fold up cart., 35.00 or so

Carry me and the wives stuff along with food and drinks for the day.

It's going on 4 years now

About the size of a red flyer wagon with taller sides

I used a fold up wagon. The small wheels were not a fan of the big gravel at my range. Couldnt pull it easily. Tried a bike stroller and found it was easy to weigh it down enough to rip the fabric. Ended up buying a cart from https://rangetacticalgear.com I wont have to upgrade again. Admittedly, I bought it around black Friday and it was significantly cheaper than what they run for now. It hold A TON

I use one of the rugged carts. Paid a lot of money for it and don’t regret it one bit. Had a pull behind cart for a while but the stroller is superior to me. Much more compact and has a ton of compartments that are helpful for all the little things. Well worth the money imho.

I use a range tactical cart and it has really nice features but if youre shooting somewhere that has rough terrain and hills it struggles. The shelf is really nice but for a cheap way out that fits almost everyones needs...a single or double jogger with brakes and atv gun racks is perfect imo.

I bought a all terrian bob jogging stroller off craigslist for $75 in great shape. I spent $25-40 on atv gun mounts (Amazon) so for $100-120 dollars my cart hold 4 guns, 18 Qu cooler, ammo box, spare parts box, and my backpack with magazines. It has a front break hand brake for hills and a locking lever on the rear tires also has suspension. I can fold it up and put it in the back of my focus.

Where did you get the boxes? Looks like you have a killer set up

I do endurace which often involves parking in one area and crewing a mile away,,, So basically you gotta get horse water, ( like 20- gallons) cooler, feed, all ur pitstop items from here to there usually over fields or rough terrain. I see alot of folks with these.  They fold flat and hang on the inside of a horse trailer door. Maybe over kill but they can haul some gear.

Also see these guys people use surf and pier fishing.

The downside of this cart is that have to pick up on the handle and that can be a lot of weight you are carrying on your shoulders and arms, not to mention the load on your spine.

well I  see 60 year old ladies hauling water bladders and coolers,, I would assume any non girly man, should be able to handle a couple guns and some ammo..

 

Not much of a gentleman if you're not helping them!🤣
