BOB Stroller to Gun Cart


Recommended Posts

I picked up a BOB stroller off of Freecycle. That's a $500 stroller, in good condition, free to me.

 

I claimed it to make it into a gun cart. But I'm a bit unclear as to how to store the long guns.

 

Has anyone converted a BOB stroller?

Thanks!

thats a really nice platform for a gun cart , as you can see there are lots of suggestions , but i needed to chirp in to say "WELL DONE" i envy you , mime have always revolved around a golf bag cart , i like minimalist approach , but these are far more versatile and maneuverable  , i like the packability but the stability of the buggy platform has always made sense to me , just dont "overbuild" it keep it simple and efficient

I used baby joggers for years until my wife started shooting and I forced to buy a bigger Rugged Gear gun cart.  I started 20 years ago with a 3 wheeled golf push cart with a giant pro golf bag.  I took a lot of grief for that idea, but it worked well.  My baby joggers were the next step.

 

I always kept as much of the nylon cloth as I could on the baby joggers I converted.  What I did on all my conversions was to attach ATV gun racks, like the ones pictured below on the link, near the push handle.  Most of the time I was able to attach them to the existing plastic box with a little reinforcement.  On some joggers, I had a slip on board with the rubber gun racks attached.  On the last two joggers, I had a drop-in plywood board that gave the long gun butts a place to sit securely. I wore out three jogger conversions before I switched to a bigger Rugged Gear cart.

I wanted my gun cart to look like a baby jogger when it was folded up in the back of my SUV especially when it was sitting in the parking lot of a hotel at a multiday out of town big shoot.

That's what B B King asked his wife after she showed him that she had his initials tattooed on her butt cheeks.....he demanded to know "who is B o B"......

Are those wide enough for our SxS shotguns? Some aren't. Thanks

Believe it or not, it stands for Beast Of Burden.

Thanks for the info. Kind of a weird name for a baby buggy. I kind of thought it might be “Baby On Board” or perhaps some cutesy name only rich trophy wives would or could afford, like; (this must be said like Mr. Howell only in a woman’s voice) Belaire, Oh Baby… :D
