  • Buckshot Bear changed the title to What's some cool things you blinged out your gun cart with?

Since the title was changed...this one is on my gun CART.

From the truck (46 Chev 1 T.) that I learned to drive in on the home place in MT.

An original Colt Lightning, an original 86 Winchester and an original 73 Winchester. Topped off with a mule shoe found half buried in a trail used in the early days of settling the West.

Here are some things that I’ve done to my carts. The leather work was done by Double Diamond.

Not really blinge like some of you guys have done, but funny story.  The guys at my local club made me a branding iron to "roast " me at our annual match.  The life and times of GW.   Got the iron to take home as souvenir.   Branded my gun cart.   Short time later I was across the state at another club annual shoot.  Was running the timer, but noticing a stranger looking at my gun cart.  Dressed cowboy but not one of us.   Took a break and went of to find out if he had any questions about shooting.  He asked about my gun cart.   Turns out he was a State Brand Inspector and was stumped by my brand.    Good laughs and nice guy.    Memories get better as we age       3 Foot, love your heels        GW

You must have more than one pair.  When you shot with us at Emmett Idaho I think they were a different color.  Bullett 19707

I don't know if it's considered "bling", but I built the ammo box for my gun cart....

I suppose my new rifle-length squib rod (sized to run down the longest .357 barrel anyone reasonably uses for CAS, and good for use in larger bores too) adorns my cart, though I'm not sure it counts as bling.  It is cool (at least to me) because my friend turned the handle from a chunk of unbelievably hard Osage Orange log on his lathe while I watched.  For the uninitiated, properly dried Osage Orange wood doesn't rot, doesn't crack, doesn't absorb water, and is incredibly strong.  In the days of the Old West it was used by the "new" Americans to make fence posts and railroad ties, and by preexisting native Americans to make bows.  Osage Orange is extremely durable and is considered to be one of the most decay resistant woods in North America.  It is still used to make bows and musical instruments today.

i love seeing these carts and what folks used to add character , some are very artistic , some innovative , some add to the ambiance of old west and i think i like them most of all when it comes right down to it , but all of them are fun to see and think on ,

Totes Magoats has goat bells (I guess?) hanging from his cart.  Does that count as bling?  You can hear him coming. :)

 

I would like to see a rugged gear cart with 10" slicks on the rear.  I wouldn't want to push it, just see it.

I screwed on each side of our first Gunther Cartwright cart sides, my first holsters.

Then I had Anvil Horn make me a treble clef hook that I screwed into the top box, to hang my bag on.

I painted my name and added music notes and roses over Mogillon Drifters laser engraved USMC symbol (after it had chipped away with years of use) because I bought Shanley a larger cart and bogarted his!!!:ph34r:

It is usually used by Deacon Henrey when he comes to WR/EOT and CAC!!!

photos to follow.

 

Add: Holy COW!!!

I hadn't realized how 'used' this poor beasty has been!!

Time to strip and reseal!

2 tomahawks, pig skin canteen, buff horns, trinkets, pouches, different types of Indian like material on seat & bags.

I was told when I built it to make sure it was light...it ain't and now even more so  !! Had it  for nearly 16 years. Also a white tip silvertail foxtail which I got in South Dakota years ago.

Not our cart,  because excess baggage to EOT was beyond our means, :lol: 

Kindly lent to us by Fast Draw Fawn (UT) and we blinged it and sent it back with thanks, some pressies, and an Aussie flag.

We would 'gather' extra carts and items needed for Aussie and Kiwi mates.

We have a small loft of chilly bins, griddles, tea kettles, ect. that were left behind in our keeping for return trips to EOT in NM.

Now I need to reach them all and see what to do with the treasures!

Sure have missed our non-USA pards!!!
