When I shot bullseye

I used to shoot a lot of bullseye. I needed a range box to carry all my stuff. Targets, scope, guns, ammo , oils and tools. You know.
So I designed this.
Thin birch ply and mahogany dovetailed frame.
Starting from the handle it’s carved into a full grip.
The back of the box tilts out for access to targets.
The front swings up to access everything else . The top drawer holds the spotting scope which attaches to an adjustable arm. This way as the box is on the bench I can adjust it to perfect height so as not to have to move from my position. I just tilt my head to track my shots.
The center tray holds up to 4 guns. All held in place with a tensioner wheel. Turn the wheel and it clamps all securely in place.
The bottom holds ammo. If I tote 4 guns I’ll keep ammo separate as it can get heavy.
The side drawers hold oil, tools, clips etc.
I also carved custom grips for my Ruger and S&W for bullseye shooting incorporating finger grooves and beaver tails. They work great.
Hope you enjoy.

Nice. The cabinet alone looks heavy, is it?
Looks it but no. It’s only thin ply birch. You can carry a 4x8 panel with one hand . I had to build it light for all I wanted to carry.
And relatively little actual wood is only 1/2 inch.
And usually it’s 2 guns. So , no not heavy .

I’ve lugged heavier suitcases. Many think that until I say here, lift it .
Wow that’s not what I expected!

That looks like a well made and well thought range box. I bet it took some time to make it just the way you wanted to, but I bet in the long run it saves you time when you load it up and head for the range.
Thank you!
Yea, I like to think so. Using it is a joy. So easy and it’s always half full. Just add the guns and ammo of the day and off you go.

As to time? Yeah a bit . But well spent I believe. But it is what I do for a living .
At first glance, the first thumbnail reminded me of a portable phonograph. The second pic did little to disabuse me of that notion.

Very nice. My dad was always making boxes for specific tools and thought them out in a way that all the accessories would fit cleanly and intelligently.
Thank you gentlemen!
Worked well until IPSC and IDPA turned my head. Off I went with high caps, multiple clips and range bags
