Well, I dunno Jim ...

I did a blowup to check and, except for some similarity in girth,
I just don't see the resemblance!

BW that is one nice coach. I need to build one myself. Is it heavy? What kind of lumber did you use? How close to scale is it, or at all?

Boot Strap, thanks for the kind words pard.  The stagecoach fills the back of the old Ford Pick-up if that helps pard, lol.  I would guess the weight at about 45 to 55 pounds and it is made mostly of pine.  The wagon wheels are the most expensive part of the creation so, you may want to look around to get the best deal possible.  I had a pard tell me it's probably a little under 1/4 scale?

If you're interested in the plans for this thing, (instructions, diagrams & photos) shoot me an email (eosimages@suddenlink.net) and I will get them right out to ya pard.

Seen one of them coaches, up close ‘n personal, built from those plans by Texas Ant, Mechanicsville, VA. Very, very nice. Ant tells me he got some technical advice from BW by phone.

Me? I wouldn’t attempt it. Ant is a craftsman. I’m a hack with a jigsaw who knows his limitations.

That's a fine lookin stage!!!

Meanwhile, for something entirely different, I put this lightweight cart together.


four guns, folding, removable integral front "box" bucket.


Wheels and handle are salvaged from a an old "goat cart".


Bucket serves as ammo tray and cooler with a foam insert inside.

Haven't used it yet, but I think it'll be ok.

Awful nice lookin’ werk.  I’d just hate ta push (pull) it some places I shoot. Ya need small ‘n light.  Real muddy in places too.

When I was a kid, Mechanics Illustrated had plans for a scale ‘03 curved dash Oldsmobile.  Really like to convert them plans o’er to electric motivation ‘n make a gun cart outtah the thing.  I’d have ta have a trailer to take it places but that ain’t difficult ta come by.

Pipe dreams…


Somewhere in my junk, I have a copy of that MI issue.  Arthur Godfrey and a buddy of his were selling those cars as kits (they had the olds and a ford), pushing em to folks in the then new gated retirement communities where they woulda been legal to use.

It's a big machinist job to build one, but it wure would be neat :)

Most gun carts I've seen share a common problem, or two.  Ever since I've been allowed to carry a gun, after my 6th birthday, I've been taught that the end of the gun with the round hole is where the violence comes out.  In other words, I hate looking down gun barrels, especially my own.

To that end, I've designed a minimalist gun cart that won't require the operator to look down his gun barrels when he's moving the cart.  It's a two wheel design that folds up easily and can be hung on wall pegs when not in use.  It'll transport easily, haul all the ammo needed for a full annual match and hold up to Four long guns.  I'm making Two of 'em.  One each for my Two Sons in Law.  They are great pards to shoot with.  My daughters made good choices.

Ok, I'll post photos when I get the first one finished.

FWIW, my own gun cart has me looking down the barrels and it'll get replaced when I'm done with the first two carts.  I'm thinkn' it will become a garden tool cart for my bride.  She will get a kick out of having a cart to move her garden stuff around in.

Stand by for photos in a couple of weeks.
